A 100% natural and zero calorie sweetener, Stevia, which offers a mild herbal aftertaste, is made using extracts of the naturally sourced Stevia plant.
Stevia Rebaudiana Bertoni, commonly referred to as stevia, is a plant native to South America. Called “Ka’a He’e” (“sweet herb”) in Guarani, the indigenous language of Paraguay and parts of Brazil, stevia has been used as a sweetener for hundreds of years. The sweetness is extracted from the stevia leaf, which contains steviol glycosides. This naturally occurring component – the steviol glycosides, determine the strength of the sweetness and can be more than 200 times sweeter than sugar. Buy: Equal Stevia, S$7.85 (box 40 sachets) or Silver Spoon Truvia, S$7.55 (box 60 sachets).
