Stevia Leaf Powder
- Produced from the dried foliage of an evergreen shrub related to the sunflower native to South America. In temperate regions it can be grown as an annual or herbaceous perennial
- Stevia leaves have a gentle licorice-like flavour and a sweetness that is said to be up to 200 times stronger than sugar.
- Research has shown that stevia, as a sweetener, does not contribute calories or carbohydrates to the diet and that it has no effect on blood glucose or insulin response.
- This means that it is an especially good alternative sweetener for people with diabetes or those who are wishing to reduce their caloric intake from sweeteners.
Suggested Use: Used as an alternative to sugar in beverages, baked goods, and many other foods. Because it is so much sweeter than sugar, only a very small amount is needed.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry, dark place in a sealed container.
Safety: We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using any herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
