If you have been following the blog for a while now, you know I am a huge fan of using NuNaturals stevia in my oatmeal, smoothies, and tea. But I’m often asked, what the heck IS stevia and…. is it even good for you? Here’s the inside scoop on stevia and a chance for you to try some for yourself.
What Is Stevia?
Stevia is a plant native to South America. It is part of the sunflower family and its leaves are naturally sweet. In fact, the indigenous people used to chew them for their sweet taste and use them to naturally sweeten beverages. Stevia is unique among food ingredients because has 0 calories and it is 100-300 times sweeter than sugar in the same concentration. It comes in powder or liquid form and can be found in supermarkets or health-food stores.
Is Stevia Good For You?
Actually YES. Stevia is natural, unlike other sugar substitutes. It is NOT an artificial sweetener. It is a real food sweetener! The FDA approved the purified form of stevia as safe to use. Several studies have shown that stevia in its pure form (not processed products like Truvia or PureVia) may actually offer many types of health benefits. It’s been shown to be safe without containing toxins or producing side effects in those who consume it. And because it’s zero calorie and doesn’t spike blood glucose, it’s a great sweetener for diabetics or others with blood sugar issues. Recent research suggests it may help to stabilize insulin levels as well, and some studies even show that it can regulate blood pressure. A Japanese study (where stevia is immensely popular) found that stevia can help to prevent plaque buildup on teeth. In addition, stevia (like all plants) contains antioxidants, known to help fight free radicals that can lead to chronic conditions and cancer.
What is the best kind of Stevia to Buy?
I’ve tested at least half a dozen stevia products and found NuNaturals stevia to have the best flavor and price. NuNaturals NuStevia is Non-Bitter tasting, has ZERO calories, and does not effect blood sugar levels. NuNaturals products DO NOT contain aspartame, saccharin, sucralose, high-fructose corn syrup, sugar, soy, yeast, what, milk, synthetics, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. They are GMO Free, from sustainable agriculture assisting in making a healthy Earth. NuNaturals products are a safe choice for diabetics, people who follow specific diets (paleo, keto, candida, low carb), and a hit with figure conscious fitness fanatics.
NuNaturals has an extensive line of Stevia products that are 100% natural. I like to use NuNaturals collagen in my oatmeal and enjoy using their pure liquid stevia to sweeten my protein smoothies. I’ve sweetened tea with their peppermint liquid stevia and added fiber to dishes with their Oat Fiber. I’ve also tried their Dutch processed Cocoa powder for sugar free brownies and their Organic Green Banana flour for gluten free baking. The options to use their healthy products are ENDLESS,there’s even an all-star world wide recipe collection that NuNaturals has created online through partnering with healthy living bloggers.
