Stevia is a sweetener and sugar substitute derived from the leaves of the plant species Stevia rebaudiana. The active compounds are steviol glycosides, which have 30 to 150 times the sweetness of sugar. Stevia has zero carbs which makes it a perfect sugar substitute for diabetes, weight loss or simply following a healthy lifestyle!
1 teaspoon of raw stevia is equivalent to 1 cup of white sugar. Use it in your hot or cold teas, coffees, juices, or any beverage, in your cereal, baking, and desserts.
