What are the uses and Benefits of Stevia?

1. Regulates Blood Sugar Levels

Stevia has the ability to regulate blood sugar levels. When stevioside (a non-carbohydrate glycoside compound) breaks down, the particles are absorbed by bacteria in the colon rather than the bloodstream. This makes Stevia the best replacement for normal sugar for people on carb controlled diets.

2. Zero Calorie Sweetener Taking the Place of Sugar

Because Stevia is a plant based, zero calorie sweetener it is a great substitute for sugar. When swapping out stevia for sugar you are saving empty calories and the negative side effects of refined sugars.

How do I use Stevia?

You can use stevia in dishes that you cook or order from restaurants or through hot beverages (our favorite being SUTRA Gold or SUTRA Black).
