As part of my resolve to start eating ’cleaner’ food. I have now started using Stevia in all my recipes, smoothies, tea and coffee.
Stevia is natural, non-toxic and calorie free. This makes it much better than the traditional chemical sweetners.
So far I have had to buy it online at http://shop.steviadanmark.com/ which is a Danish site.
A little goes a long way, because it is sweeter than sugar. You can buy it as a powder, sweetner tabs or as drops.
Stevia is an herb that has been used as a sweetener in South America for hundreds of years. It is calorie – free, and the powdered concentrate is 300 times sweeter than sugar.
Stevia is widely used all over the world. In Japan, for example, it claims 41% of the sweetener market, including sugar, and was used in Japanese Diet Coke until the company replaced it with aspartame to “standardize” worldwide.
My experience with this super plant is nothing but positive.
