Our sweetener substitute Svetia® uses stevia leaf extract.

Stevia is a plant in the sunflower family native to South America, where it has been used as a natural sweetener for centuries.

The stevia leaves contain steviosides, rebaudiosides and dulcosides, which are the compounds responsible for its sweetening power.

The steps to obtain our zero calorie sweetener are:

  • Plant Breeding: Plantation of stevia in field.
  • Harvesting: Harvest the leaves of stevia.
  • Aqueous extraction: Extraction of the steviol glycosides from the leaves of the stevia, by means of hot water.
  • Purification: Process in which all leaf compounds, which are not steviol glycosides, are eliminated, achieving a purity of greater than 95%.
  • Formulation: Steviol glycosides are co-crystalized with cane sugar crystals.
  • Final Product: We pack our sweetener in 1g packets and deliver it to our clients, which are the supermarkets, so that consumers can buy our Svetia® Calorie Free Sweetener.
