Stevia In The Raw® extract 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 for our 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.
Stevia In The Raw® derives virtually all its sweetness from Stevia Leaf Extract, 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.
Stevia In The Raw® contains zero calories and is made from plant based ingredients. It is a perfect sugar substitute for those wishing to replace sugar with an alternative sweetener. It is suitable for diabetics and is gluten-free, vegan, and kosher certified.
