Stevia, Natural Sweetener

Stevia natural sweetener as an ingredient and not a dietary supplement

 

Stevia has two roles in our product line.  In our flavoring drops for water, teas and coffees, we use just a dash of stevia as an ingredient, not a dietary supplement, more on this later.  Here's what we mean by "just a dash of stevia. "  There are 600 drops in a 1/2 oz bottle of flavor drops.  That 1/2 bottle with stevia, natural sweetener uses about 5 drops per gallon of flavored water.  That's exactly what we mean when we say just a hint of stevia.

The second role stevia plays in our product line is as a natural sweetener. A liquid, natural sweetener                                you can use to sweeten:

  • Coffee

  • Teas

  • Desserts

  • Dairy Products
