Sweetleaf Stevia Sweetener ReviewAward-winning SweetLeaf Stevia® Sweetener is unique in the marketplace because it’s America’s original stevia-based sweetener.
I received Liquid Lemon Drop and Liquid Berry. Sweetleaf is such a better tasting sweetener and such a healthier alternative. I was abit leary to try since I have been using other sweetener alternatives that they have on the market but knew they weren't good for you.
So I gave it a whirl and am I glad I did. I don't see me using any other product but Sweetleaf now.
Liquid Stevia Lemon Drop: I added a few drops to my Dandelion Root Tea and it added such a refreshing taste to it that I truly wanted another cup.
Liquid Stevia Berry: I added a few drops to my Elderberry Tea and such an added benefit. It had such a sweet Berry flavor/taste added to the already Berry Tea.
I found that neither one of these sweeteners was overpowering due to you add exactly how much you desire. You play it to taste. Try a drop, if not enough add another drop, so simple and easy. What's great is that Sweetleaf will last awhile due to not needing many drops to taste the flavor.
I love that it comes in alittle glass container with a dropper. So you just squeeze the applicator to your desired amount of drops. LOVE IT
They have SO many flavors to choose from THAT you can't just choose one, you will end up buying quite a few flavors.
When James May was introduced to the naturally sweet leaves of the stevia plant by a Peace Corps worker in 1982, he learned the high-quality, unprocessed stevia leaves can be 30 times sweeter than sugar. When processed, the sweetest parts of the plant, called glycosides, are extracted from the leaves and isolated. The combination of these compounds is 300 times sweeter than sugar and contains no calories or carbohydrates. Mr. May also learned the Guarani tribes of South America had consumed the plant for centuries and stood as testament to its safety. They called the plant Ka’a He’ê, which means “sweet herb.”
Mr. May had always been personally and professionally keen on issues of health, but it was the extraordinary sweet taste of the stevia leaf that convinced him to change the direction of his life to fully explore this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Mr. May immediately invested nearly all of his life savings to become the first person to manufacture and market stevia products for the U.S. market.
To ensure a steady supply of premium stevia for his stevia products, Mr. May met directly with Latin American farmers and encouraged them to grow stevia that he would in turn buy. Providing the farmers with an incentive to grow crops for legal commerce has, over the years, helped undermine the narcotics economy that has plagued the region for decades. Through Mr. May’s influence, a number of native farmers have chosen to grow stevia rather than crops such as marijuana and coca for cocaine.
Over the years, Mr. May challenged a number of government regulations before becoming the first company to receive GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) status for a line of stevia products.
