  • What Is It?

    • What is Organic Stevia In The Raw?

      Organic Stevia In The Raw® consists of stevia extract and a carrier (organic cane sugar).  The stevia is extracted from the sweetest part of the stevia plant leaf (stevia rebaudiana Bertoni).  It is then purified to create a sweetener that is 300 to 400 times sweeter than cane sugar. Because the stevia leaf extract is so pure and sweet, it requires blending with a bulking agent or carrier so that it can be conveniently measured, poured and used as a substitute for sugar or other caloric sweeteners.

      *Each packet contains less than 3 calories per serving, which the FDA considers dietetically zero.

    • Where is Organic Stevia In The Raw from?

      Organic Stevia In The Raw® gets its delicious sweetness primarily from the stevia plant leaf. The stevia plant is native to South America and has been used indigenously as a sweetener for over 400 years. Stevia is now grown and harvested all over the world. It has also been vastly popular in Japan for more than six decades, now representing 41% of that country’s sugar substitute market. Stevia leaf extract is found as an ingredient in many products, such as ice cream, bread, and soft drinks, throughout Asia, South America, and the world.

    • Why is Organic Cane Sugar added to Organic Stevia In The Raw?

      Many sugar substitutes in powder form use various ingredients to dilute the very potent stevia leaf extract.   In Organic Stevia In The Raw, we chose to blend with sugar in order to develop a packet that has the sweetening equivalence of two teaspoons of sugar, but only 3 calories per packet.  (For comparison, 2 tsp. of sugar contains 32 calories).
