Stevia is much sweeter than sugar, but it is not a source of calories. Steviol glycosides practically do not provide energy, since they are hardly absorbed in human digestive system.

Stevia or, more precisely its extract, is used for manufacturing sweeteners. The most important feature of sweeteners is the fact that they are natural plant products which may be safely used in a slimming diet and in everyday nutrition. Results of the research carried out all around the world prove that stevia has a wide range of healthful qualities. No harmful effect on a human body have been noticed. More importantly, stevia can be consumed by people suffering from diabetes or phenylketonuria. Stevia, as a low-calorie sugar substitute, can be used by people who want to get rid of excess kilograms, but cannot do without sweets. Most importantly, extracts of stevia do not increase a glycaemic index, thus sweeteners obtained from it can be “solace of life” for diabetics. Only in case of hypoglycemia, stevia cannot replace sugar.

A perfect solution for those who care for shape and health (research has proved its positive influence on high blood pressure and diabetes) and for those who do not want or cannot use sugar.More »
