Stevia

IMG_0224
Just last week I was at the Engredea Expo and came across a booth introducing Stevia. It was a fairly new product that I only have heard once in Vancouver. Hearing this product twice now brings my full attention that Stevia is definitely worth knowing about. This sweetener is derived from plant and is found in Paraguay and Brazil and has been used for thousands of years as a sweetener. Many food industries in North America are now replacing Sucralose with Stevia. In the next few years, STEVIA is going to be big on the market.. Less people are going to use Sucralose and Aspartame since these two are artificial sweeteners..

Some Stevia Benefits
-Sweeter than Sucralose, table sugar, aspartame…
-Natural sweetener extracted from plant source
-lowers blood pressure
-ZERO calories
-the ONLY alkalizing sweetener (if you missed my alkalizing post click HERE)

Stay Hearty
