Sweet Without Sugar
Stevia is a calorie-free sugar substitute from the stevia plant for the calorie-conscious connoisseurs
Stevia is a natural raw material extracted from the plant Stevia. The calorie-free sugar alternative Stevia has been used for decades in South America for sweetening food and drinks.
In Europe, too, this plant-based sweetener is finding more and more supporters and can be found in many households in the kitchen shelves. The modern sweetness is not only popular with figure-conscious women and men, but also with people who value a sugar-reduced and healthy diet.
The enormous sweetening power of Stevioglycosides compared to saccharose and the fact that Stevia is virtually not metabolized, are the benefits of Stevia sweetness. The Stevia leaves have an approximately 30 to 40 time’s higher sweetness and are particularly popular with tea drinkers.
The Stevia extracts can be depending on the specifications up to 450 time’s sweeter than sugar.
Because unlike sugar Stevia has no calories, the related diseases, such as cardiovascular disease or obesity are minimized. When you use Stevia as a diabetic the advantage is that it does not affect blood sugar levels.
