Stevia is a dietary supplement that is derived from the plant Stevia Rebaudiana which is grown for its sweet leaves. Derived from a plant, Stevia is considered more natural to its counterpart artificial sweeteners which are chemically formulated. But we also don’t have a ton of research on the long-term effects of this product either. However, Stevia, native to Central and South America, has been used in these countries for years. In June 2008, the World Health Organization’s Joint Expert Committee on Food Additives, a panel of food ingredient safety experts, concluded that Stevia is safe for use as a general purpose sweetener. The Committee set a safe daily intake of 0-4 milligrams per kilogram of body weight as steviol glycosides.

I've used all types of sweeteners, artificial and natural. This is a great find and this brand is without a doubt the best. I love this sweetener. this sweetener by NuNaturals is good for increasing the sweetness in beverages like tea or even lemonade. I like the way it improves the taste of these different beverages, and I also really like the health benefits of using this product over sugar.

The packets are really convenient to bring along in my purse to sweeten my coffee or tea to restaurants or coffee shops.
I used Stevia Powder in my cupcakes and they were very tasty!
I use plain yogurt, frozen fruit, defrosted and some Liquid Vanilla Stevia to make a wonderful simple dessert.

I highly recommend this sweetener to have in your cupboard for a calorie-free option for sweetening some of your foods. Try it.
