SteviaSugar is a naturally delicious, sugar substitute for coffee or tea and can be sprinkled on or used in preparing fruit, cereal, cookies, cakes, etc., and into any beverage. It is stable in both cooking and freezing. SteviaSugar combines stevia leaf extract with the highest quality fructooligosaccharides (FOS). Stevia extract is 200 to 300 times sweeter than cane sugar, due to glycosides that can be extracted from the leaves, and is difficult to regulate because of its intense sweetness. Diluting the extract with a desirable carrier could tone down intensity. FOS is a functional food ingredient, mildly sweet, low calorie powder, which is found in chicory, fruits, and vegetables. Stevia is an excellent diabetic aid which nourishes the pancreas, helping to achieve healthy blood sugar levels. Stevia contains numerous phytonutrients and trace minerals and is sweeter than sugar without negative effects. It can sweeten with no calories, carbohydrates, or tooth decay and is diabetic safe. Stevia nourishes the pancreas and does not raise blood glucose levels, making it not only safe for diabetics-but also beneficial. Since there are no calories or carbohydrates, stevia is excellent for weight loss. It does not contain the negative side effects reported with the use of artificial sweeteners including aspartame.
