Organic Stevia In The Raw® is a plant based sweetener that combines Stevia Leaf Extract and Organic Cane Sugar. The Stevia is extracted from the sweet leaves of the Stevia plant to create a sweetener that is 300 to 400 times sweeter than Cane Sugar. Because the Stevia Leaf Extract is so pure and sweet, we blend it with our Organic Cane Sugar so that is can be conveniently measured, poured and used as a substitute for sugar.
Organic Stevia In The Raw® is sourced from the sweet leaves of the Stevia plant, Stevia Rebaudiana Bertoni. The Stevia plant leaves are steeped in hot water to extract the sweetness and then undergo a process to separate, filter and purify the extract into a sweetener. We then combine the Stevia Leaf Extract with Organic Cane Sugar for the perfect measurable blend. 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.

Pure Stevia Leaf Extract is naturally 300-400x sweeter than sugar. We add organic cane sugar to our Organic Stevia In The Raw® to dilute the very potent Stevia Leaf Extract and make our sweetener measureable. In Organic Stevia In The Raw®, we chose to blend our Organic Stevia with Organic Cane Sugar to create the perfect balance of sweetness and a delicious taste, at only 3 calories per packet, which the FDA considers dietetically zero.
Organic Stevia In The Raw® derives virtually all its sweetness from Stevia Leaf Extract and Organic Cane Sugar, whereas some of the other Stevia-based products contain added flavors. Our Stevia In The Raw® never uses artificial or added flavors, ever. The high purity level of our Stevia Leaf Extract eliminates the aftertaste found in some less pure stevia products currently in the market.
Each packet of Organic Stevia In The Raw® contains a very small amount (about 0.75g) of Organic Cane Sugar. The American Diabetes Association advises individuals with diabetes that consumption of small amounts of carbohydrates are acceptable when consumed with a meal and are part of a healthy diet. While most health professionals regard the consumption of sugar substitutes as suitable for diabetics we recommend that individuals with diabetes consult their physicians or health professionals to determine if Organic Stevia In The Raw® can be part of their diet.
