What Is Stevia 90% Steviosides Extract Powder?
Stevia, commonly known as sweet leaf or sugar leaf, derives from the stevia plant, a class of plants within the sunflower family that is widely grown for its sweet-tasting leaves. This plant originally comes from the South American rain forests of Paraguay and Brazil. The extracted form of Stevia has about 300 times the sweetness of sugar and does not contain any caloric value. Stevia is implemented as a sugar substitute, and due to its negligible effects on blood sugar, it is a popular food additive in low-carbohydrate and low-sugar foods.
PLEASE NOTE: This item is STEVIOCIDE EXTRACT; it is not powdered Stevia. Because it is so concentrated, it won't be enjoyable if used without dilution.
Potential Benefits may Include:
