NOW® Introduces BetterStevia™ in Convenient, Portable Packaging, More Flavors

Bloomingdale, Ill. (June 25, 2013) – NOW Foods BetterStevia is now available in convenient packaging to make them portable, allowing consumers to take their favorite stevia along wherever they need it.

NOW® Foods BetterStevia Liquids are now sold in convenient, no-mess, one-drop-at-a-time bottles that make it easy for consumers to use exactly the amount they prefer. New flavors English Toffee Coconut, Tropical Fruit, Pomegranate Blueberry, and Cinnamon Vanilla have been added to the line, which includes Hazelnut, Lemon Twist, Chocolate, and Vanilla.

NOW’s BetterStevia powder in packets are now available in convenient 35-count (organic) and 45-count (original) boxes.

BetterStevia, a unique, and significantly better tasting sweetener, is enzyme treated to provide a better-rounded sweetening profile ideal for a variety of food and beverage uses. BetterStevia is extracted from the whole Stevia leaf and is not an isolated fraction. Isolated fractions like Reb A may require additional added substances to mask the bitter aftertaste. NOP Certified Organic and Kosher, BetterStevia is 60-100 times sweeter than sugar.
