Stevia is a plant that belongs to the chrysanthemum family, which is native to Paraguay and Brazil. It contains no fructose yet is 300 times sweeter than sugar. We add a touch of organic stevia at the end of the natural fermentation process. This adds back a touch of sweetness and balances out the flavours after we naturally brew out all of the sugar from our bevvies.
It's a popular sweetener among diabetics and those on carbohydrate-controlled diets.
WHY PEOPLE LOVE IT
Stevia does not raise blood glucose levels, making it a great option for those with diabetes to enjoy the sweet taste without negative effects of sugar (woop woop!).
It provides sweetness without contributing to calorie intake, which may be beneficial for those managing their weight or on a calorie-restricted diet.
Unlike sugar, stevia may not contribute to teeth decay, as it doesn’t provide a food source for oral bacteria.
