We have a winner of the DAGOBA Organic Chocolates 10 piece gift package. Congratulations to Chelsea L.! Enjoy those chocolates, Chelsea!
On to Day 22! Today is my favorite source for stevia. You’ve heard me mention this brand and possibly caught my rants on the Facebook Page now and again. I use the Stevita Stevia brand in all of my recipes.
Stevita makes the purest and most potent stevia I have been able to find. They grow their stevia plants on organic and environmentally friendly farms in Brazil and import their products into America. What sets Stevita apart from every other brand of stevia I have tried is the potency of their products. They use 95-98% pure steviosides in the making of their stevia liquids and powders. The steviosides is what supplies that sweet taste to our tongue. All other brands I have tried (and I’d estimate it’s been 10 other brands in the last 5 years) have fallen short in taste and potency. Most brands you can find at the store only use 40-85% steviosides. The lack of pure steviosides is what gives you that bitter taste when using stevia. You won’t get a bitter aftertaste with Stevita’s products.
I personally use the Spoonable Stevita Stevia in my baking (get the big container to save you some cash). Their pure stevia powder is blended with natural vegetable-sourced erythritol (a zero glycemic sugar alcohol) for easy measuring and mixing while baking. I also have the Stevita Supreme on hand for baking or quick “sugar bowl” needs like oatmeal. It is a blend of their pure stevia powder with birch-sourced xylitol. Again, easier measuring and you can easily take a spoonful and add it to your dish without going overboard in sweetness. For pure stevia, I use Stevita’s liquid. I buy it in the big bottles to get the most bang for my buck. They also make a great pure stevia powder, but for me it’s really hard to bake with such a concentrated powder form. I find it easier to count the drops from the liquid bottle. But either option is available to you!
Stevita has given a great give package for one of you to win as part of our 25 Days of Christmas Giveaways! They have included some of their flavored gums (mint and cinnamon) — love their gum! They flavor it naturally with essential oils and add xylitol for tooth and gum health. You’ll also receive a pack of their Stevita Supreme packets and 5 bottles of their liquids including plain, chocolate, vanilla, peach and toffee! I looove using their flavored liquids in my coffees, tea, or smoothies. So good! You’ve got to try the toffee in your coffee with a little coconut milk. Yummo!!
You can purchase Stevita Stevia for yourself at your local co-op or health foods store (most natural minded stores carry the Stevita brand now) or you can find all of their products on Amazon.com.
