About Stevia

Superfood from South America

The natives of Paraguay and Brazil have known for a long time: The leaves of the stevia plant are great for sweetening drinks and food. For hundreds of years, they have been using the plant, which they know as the "honey herb", for their teas and food. In 2008, the sweetener steviol glycoside was authorised by the Food Authority in Switzerland. Two years later SteviaSweet came onto the market and since then has enjoyed increasing popularity.

From plant to product

Steviol glycosides are extracted from the leaves of the stevia plant by a natural steam distillation process, and they are then purified, filtered, and dried to produce 100% natural stevia sweetening ingredient. The crystalised and dried concentrated steviol glycosides are mixed with other natural plant-derived ingredients to produce convenient and easy to dose SteviaSweet natural sweetener products which have a rounded, sugar-like sweet taste with virtually no calories.

SteviaSweet offers these advantages

Unlike sugar, SteviaSweet contains very few calories. A fact that can affect your body weight. If you only replace four to five teaspoons of sugar per day with SteviaSweet, you will save more than 500 calories per week. On a yearly basis that is 3 kilograms of body fat, which would have been produced by sugar alone. Stevia is not only great from a nutrient point of view. Unlike sugar, it doesn't decay the teeth or increase the blood glucose level. So SteviaSweet is suitable for diabetics, vegans, those on a low carb diet and those who want to reduce their sugar consumption.
