To start the New Year off right, why not try and make changes in your eating choices for better health? How about changing your regular sweeteners to a natural, zero-calorie alternative?
Introducing Truvia™ natural sweetener- a sweet little something that satisfies your cravings without adding calories. Truvia™ is a stevia-based, zero-calorie sweetener made with the best tasting part of the stevia plant.
Stevia is a shrub in the chrysanthemum family that is native to northeastern Paraguay. First discovered by the country’s natives, the plant has been grown, harvested and used in South America to sweeten foods and beverages for more than 200 years. Truvia™ rebiana, the main ingredient in Truvia™ natural sweetner, comes from the best-tasting part of the stevia leaf and is a high-purity sweetener that is consistent in quality and taste. Cargill has spent the past five years developing the product to its specifications and working to produce the ingredient on a commercial scale and the FDA recently approved its safety.
I have tried using Truvia™ in my coffee and it does have a wonderfully sweet taste to it. And of course, I like the fact that it has zero calories, zero fat, and zero sodium!
Truvia™ comes in convenient boxes of 40, 80, and 140 count single-serve packets and are now available at your local Whole Foods Market and other grocery stores nationwide!
You sound like a real Truvia fan. However, you seem to have fallen for the FALSE claims of Truvia as a “natural” sweetener. Truvia is as natural as the car fuel that they put in it. Yes, Virginia, there is car fuel in your Truvia (and PureVia) sweeteners. They are both made from Rebiana, which is a chemically produced pure Reb A product. There is no such thing as Rebiana in nature, or in a stevia plant. Rebiana is created under laboratory conditions by chemically splitting the stevioside molecule with ethanol or metanol, to create a Reb A molecule. This leaves a residual of methanol or ethanol in your sweetener. Would you want to put car fuel in your coffee, tea or cheesecake?? I don’t think so, but that is precisely what you are doing when you use Truvia and PureVia. SweetLeaf Sweetener is the ONLY 100% natural stevia sweetener that is made using ONLY purified water…no residual chemicals because chemicals are not used in the process. Sweetness as nature intended.
