Our stevia powder is ground from the natural extract of Stevia rebaudiana leaves. This all natural powder is incredibly sweet; one component of the stevia plant, rebaudioside A (reb A) is becoming increasingly popular as a component in natural sweeteners. Stevia contains no calories or chemical aftertastes and another component of the leaves, steviosides, provides a wide array of health benefits.
Our stevia powder is produced using a 100% water extraction method. It contains 90% steviosides and it contains no additives, processing aids, or carriers. It is non-GMO.
How Should I Use Stevia Powder?
Stevia is 250 times sweeter than sugar. Similarly to reb A, steviosides are a form of steviol glycol that provide a potent saccharine savor. A 2000 study published in British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology and a 2004 study published in Metabolism suggest that taking between 750 mg and 1 gram of steviosides per day can lower blood pressure and blood sugar levels in healthy and diabetic subjects.
The 2004 study suggests that the dose be taken with food and its results are based on the examination of those with type 2 diabetes. As stevia is reportedly 250 - 300 times sweeter than sugar (sucrose), according to a 2008 study published in Food and Chemical Toxicology, it can be useful to dilute the powder.
What is Stevia Powder?
Stevia is a type of herb that has a naturally intense sweet taste. Stevia leaves contain compounds called glycosides, particularly steviosides, which are responsible for giving the leaves their sweet flavor. These steviosides are extracted from whole dried stevia leaves and ground into a fine powder. The stevia plant is native to South America and has been consumed there for hundreds of years. More recently, stevia’s popularity and availability has increased in the United States and other countries due to studies supporting its safe use.
