Market Watch: Dried Stevia

I first heard of the stevia plant in commercials for artificial sweeteners a few years ago, but this South American herb has been known to Western society for centuries. One leaf on the tongue doesn’t seem sweet at first, but then the unmistakable taste of Sweet & Low fills the mouth and stays there. It’s reportedly sweeter than cane sugar, but the aftertaste makes it less desirable (at least to me).

  1. Fyi, good quality stevia leaves are approximately 30 times sweeter than sugar and have about 100 nutrients.

    I use SweetLeaf stevia. It has 0 calories, 0 arbs, and a 0 glycemic index!
