Sweeten your Life with Stevia
San Antonio, TX. Waking up with a slightly sweetened cup of coffee or celebrating your birthday with a slice of delicious cake are some of the pleasing moments that sweeten your life. But if having those pleasures does not imply having an excess of sugar intake, the pleasure would be even greater. Excessive sugar intake is not always good for health. Today SVETIA® with stevia is a solution.
According to the Global Stevia Institute (GSI), since stevia is calorie-free, substituting stevia for other caloric sweeteners in food and beverage products can help cut total calories. On its own, stevia has no effect on blood sugar levels and has a glycemic index of zero. Because stevia can be up to 350 times sweeter than sugar, you’ll need less of it to get the same level of sweetness.
GSI states that there are several products containing zero-calorie stevia such as soft drinks, yogurts, salad dressings and baked goods. Stevia sometimes goes by several different names, so if you see stevia, stevia extract, purified stevia leaf extracts, high purity stevia, or rebiana listed on the label, know that it’s all the same. SVETIA® is a non-calorie sweetener made from stevia, obtained from a co-crystallization process patented by METCO®. Its main advantage is that it offers an excellent flavor and sweetness.
You can take SVETIA® with stevia cold, hot or even baked, since it keeps its sweetness and does not change the original taste of food. SVETIA® has no bitter aftertaste, that is, it does not produce any unpleasant taste nor does it leave any such residues in the mouth. It is at present the most natural choice to sweeten without calories.
