What is a stevia sweetener?
Stevia sweetener is a natural, healthy alternative to sugar and artificial sweeteners. We’ve created it using the stevia plant to give you a great-tasting sweetener. With less calories than sugar and no artificial nasties, you can enjoy the sweeter things in life and still feel great about what you eat.
What is stevia?
Stevia is the name given to the sweet extract from the stevia plant, Stevia Rebaudiana. The stevia plant is traditionally grown in Paraguay, Brazil, Japan and China, and has been used for years as a sweet treat. Stevia is naturally 300 times sweeter than sugar!
What makes stevia sweet?
Stevia is sweet thanks to the glycosides in the plant leaves. These are naturally occurring chemical compounds that give stevia its sweet taste. It’s these glycosides that are used in stevia sweeteners.
Stevia health benefits
Stevia has no effect on blood glucose levels, which means it’s a great alternative for diabetics and anyone wanting to control their sugar and carbohydrate intake. It’s also low GI and has just 0.4 calories per serve, which makes it the healthier choice for anyone wanting to watch their weight, or just lead a healthier life.
What is Natvia made of?
Natvia is made from the sweetest part of the stevia plant – the tips of the leaves, known as Reb A. This is blended with a naturally occurring nectar found in fruit, erythritol. This special blend is what gives Natvia its sweet, clean taste, and means you can use it just like sugar.

We have made this our creed. So, you can rest assured that what you’ve got in your hands is the very best we can produce. In fact, we’ve been certified GMO free by the NON GMO Project. Not many other sweeteners can claim that.
Expertly crafted especially to complement coffee.
Thanks to the rise of the Triple Grandé Skinny Frappé Mocha Latté, our caffeine hit is now hopped up on sugar. Even into easy cups of Joe, we’ve been loading up on the stuff. To keep the sugar off, we’ve traditionally turned to artificial sweeteners. You know the brands and you definitely know the taste. Bleah. Not Natvia. Natvia was made for coffee. We conducted over 600 trials to make sure of that. Yum.
You can bake and cook sugar free recipes with Natvia.
Not just a one trick pony, Natvia is also great in the kitchen. Imagine a sugar-free lemon meringue pie. Well, don’t imagine, visit Sweeterlifeclub.com for sugar free recipes and a scrumptious photo.

Low GI makes it ideal for diabetics.
Remember those all natural ingredients we talked about? Well, not only are they zero in calories, they are also zero on the GI scale. We’re not talking GI Joe but GI as in Glycemic Index. This measures how quickly a food is absorbed into the blood stream. Glucose is at the top with 100. Natvia is somewhere at the bottom. Way at the bottom. Which is great news for all of you watching your blood glucose levels.
No tooth decay.
Your mouth has its own ecosystem. Everyone has one. Get over it. Remember when your dentist told you not to eat so much sugar? That ecosystem thrives on it. Loves it. Eats it. Yup. The bacteria in your mouth eats the sugar and poops out…wait for it…acid. And acid is death for your teeth, resulting in little holes that become big holes. Those bugs on the other hand, hate Natvia. Won’t touch it. Like that broccoli on your kid’s plate. So, no tooth decay. Great news for your dentist.
It is the BEST tasting of all.
Taste is highly subjective but nonetheless very important. Natvia has no bitter after taste and it’s deliciously sweet. Specialty coffee roasters spend a lot of money making sure they get the best beans, roast them to perfection and baristas then extract the best flavours from the grounds. For them, it’s all about those taste buds and these were the same taste buds we employed to help conduct those 600 plus trials we mentioned. Top coffee roasters from all over the world over swear by Natvia as their go to stevia sweetener and won’t touch the other stuff. Ask the guys at Intelligentsia, Toby’s Estate and any other coffee joint that serves us. Hand on heart, we are the best tasting and we’ll stand by that.
