How is it made?
We make extractions from the stevia plant, dry it out, purify it then blend it with a sugar naturally found in corn known as, Organically Certified Erythritol. Erythritol is a naturally derived sugar substitute and is classified as sugar alcohol called, Polyols, which is usually found in natural fruits and foods such as, grapes, melons, and mushrooms.
Stevia has eight glycosides that make up the sweet components of the product, including stevioside, rebaudioside A, C, D, E and F, steviolbioside and dulcoside A.
Why is the amount of Stevia in your products so small?
Our products have been formulated to be used just like sugar in your hot/ cold drinks, and baking. As stevia is around 300 times sweeter than sugar, only a small amount is required to give the same sweetness as sugar. We have blended organic erythritol as the carrier, or base for the stevia. The product is called Organic "Stevia", as the stevia is the active sweetener in the product.
