Stevia Extract In The Raw is a naturally delicious, zero–calorie, granulated sweetener derived directly from the leafy green foliage of the Stevia plant (stevia rebaudiana Bertoni). The sweetest part of the plant — an extract called Rebiana (a.k.a. Rebaudioside–A or Reb–A) — is then isolated to create a sweetener extract that is 300 to 400 times sweeter than cane sugar. Because the stevia extract is so sweet, it requires blending with a bulking agent so that it can most conveniently be measured, poured and used as a substitute for sugar or other caloric sweeteners.
In our Packet Product, the stevia extract is blended with dextrose, a natural carbohydrate derived from corn, to produce the 100% natural, zero calorie sweetener we call Stevia Extract In The Raw.
In our Cup For Cup “Baker’s Bag” Product, stevia extract is blended with maltodextrin, a natural carbohydrate derived from corn to produce a 100% natural, zero calorie sweetener that matches the sweetness of sugar “cup for cup”.
