Stevia Extract


A no-carb, no-calorie NATURAL sugar substitute.

Stevia is a natural sweetener derived from the sweetleaf plant. It’s 300x as sweet as sugar, so it only takes a small amount to produce the same sweet taste as cane sugar.  Stevia has been used as a sweetener in many cultures for centuries, but is only recently gaining acceptance as a sugar substitute in the United States. It was first introduced in the US in the mid 1990s as an herbal supplement. After much controversy, it was approved by the FDA.

There are currently several sugar substitutes available on the market, so what makes Stevia unique? For one thing, it’s all-natural, so many health gurus prefer it over other artificially manufactured substitutes.

For those watching their carbohydrate or caloric intake, Stevia is both carb- and calorie-free. This makes it possible for dieters to satisfy sweet cravings without wrecking their eating plans.

How does the taste of Stevia Extract  compare to other sweeteners?

For those who don’t know, or have never heard of it, Stevia is an herb that has a sweetening power unlike any other. The herb is native to Paraguay and is nothing new to the people in the region. It was in use well before the 1800′s to sweeten teas and also chewed simply for the sweet taste, kind of like our modern-day bubble gum. (minus the bubble and elementary school comics). The steviosides in their pure forms have a characteristic clean, intensive sweet taste with a mild herbal after-taste. When blended with other products, however, it exhibits synergistic effects and often enhances the flavor of the other products.

The same claims, low carb, non-caloric sweetener that will undoubtedly cause cancer or contains chemicals that researchers will find 15 years after we start using it.  We are very cautious when something “groundbreaking” is discovered – we are pure powder people, using only proven natural products and very sceptical about the new chemical pills that can shed 10 kilograms in 5 days, make you stronger, better in bed, more attractive and allows you to drive that new sports car.

Claims are made everyday. Claims mean nothing if the person doing the claiming is the same company doing the researching/marketing. That’s what good about Stevia Extract. No company has the exclusive rights to it.

So what’s the deal with Stevia? Is it safe? What does research say? Can Stevia Extract replace my sugar packets?

The researchers agreed, “The results of this study are astonishing.  Stevioside at a dose as high as 2,500 mg/kg did not do any harm to  animals.  We conclude that stevioside at a dose as high as 2.5 grams per kilogram of body weight affects neither the growth nor reproduction in hamsters.” (Sahelian, 1999).

Still skeptical?

“Stevia is safe for human consumption as per intended usage, that is, as a sweetener
(Mauro Alvarez, Ph.D., Brazil)

“In this well-chronicled history of stevia, no author has ever reported any adverse human health consequences associated with consumption of stevia leaf”
(Supplement to GRAS affirmation petition no. 4G0406, 1995)

“Stevia is a completely safe health-promoting herb”
(Juan Esteban Aguirre, Paraguayan Ambassador to the United States, in a letter to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, September 23, 1993)

  1. I’ve been using Stevia extract for a few years now, most notably in lower calorie electrolyte drinks where you don’t need the calories but want fluids and salts. This replaces most of the calories and provides a nearly identical taste. If anything, the sweetness lingers just a bit longer than table sugar and makes it an excellent choice for citrus drinks (lemonades and sports drinks) and even blender concoctions such as protein/berry shakes that need just a little hint of sweet since blueberries, blackberries and strawberries can be a bit sour by themselves. Keep in mind, pure stevia extract is about 300 times sweeter than sugar, so a little bit goes along way… a 1/32 teaspoon scoop is often enough for single serving drinks.
