Sweetness from Nature
Native to the sub-tropics of Central America and Asia, the stevia plant is a perennial shrub also known as “sweet leaf.” For centuries, people have used the tiny, unassuming leaves of the stevia plant as a natural sweetener, chewing them on their own for their pleasant, sweet taste.
How is stevia both sweet and calorie-free? It naturally contains steviocide, a white, powdery non-caloric substance that is said to be 100-400 times sweeter than table sugar! A popular substitute for those with weight management routines, PipingRock’s Sweeter Stevia adds sweetness to any dish without adding calories!
