Svetia® Calorie-Free Sweetener has a great natural taste without bitter after-taste. In sweeteners based on stevia extract as Svetia® Calorie-Free Sweetener, the sweet-tasting components are scientifically called steviol glycosides, which can be anywhere from 200 to 350 times sweeter than sugar – but all without calories. The steviol glycoside with the best sweetener properties is rebaudioside A (Reb A), which is used in Svetia® as a high intensity sweetener. Svetia® also uses cane sugar but only as a bulking agent or carrier, which provides so few calories per serving that Svetia® Calorie-Free Sweetener meets the Food and Drug Administration’s criteria for no-calorie foods (less than 5 calories per serving).
