Some info about Stevia & ‘Natvia’:

From the Natvia website:

  • What is Natvia?: “Natvia is a 100% alternative to artificial sweeteners and sugar. We created Natvia because we wanted a healthy, natural way to enjoy a little sweetness in our lives. Using natural ingredients made from plants, we created  a  healthy alternative that allows us to feel good about who we are and what we eat. Saying no to artificial sweeteners and excess sugar in our diet makes us feel great. We just know it will make you feel better too”.
  • Where does Natvia come from?: “To make this Unique Natvia Blend TM we use the freshest tips of Stevia plants (known as Reb A). We carefully blend Stevia with a naturally occurring nectar which is found in melons and grapes. Our innovative growing and blending techniques are the secret to Natvia, ensuring that every grain has a sweet, clean natural flavour that simply can’t be achieved by others“.
  • Stevia can be used 1:1 to replace sugar.

Natvia contains: Reb A and Erythitol.

Michelle’s Notes: Erythitol is a sugar alcohol (a polyol). Like other sugar alcohols (such as Xylitol), too much (i.e. greater amounts that the stated recommended amounts) of Erythitol may cause gastric upset. Caution those with Asteraceae allergies, as Stevia rebaudiuna leaf, is from the Asteraceae family, so those with this allergy may react with Stevia.
