Stevia is my favorite 100% sugar-free sweetener.
But, you have to buy the right kind or it’s just plain terrible!
Stevia Rebaudiana is a sweet-tasting plant (sugar-free) native to South America. The compounds in the stevia leaf that taste sweet are called steviol glycosides, and provide a range of sweet and bitter-sweet flavors.
The Healthiest way to consume Stevia is in its whole form, as powdered green leaf.
The most delicious way to consume Stevia, in my experience, is with the following brand:
NuNaturals Stevia. Check your local grocery store for the pure NuNaturals extract (powdered or liquid) to get the sweetest (never bitter) Stevia on the market. You can also check out NuNaturals’ website.
This makes a great sweetener for just about anything. It takes very little to make things sweet and is never bitter or licorice-y tasting.
