You may have noticed new products available in your local supermarket that include an alternative sweetening ingredient called Stevia. Native to South America, Stevia is a plant that was traditionally used as a herbal remedy and sweetener. The sweetness comes from a natural ingredient extracted from the leaves, which has zero calories and zero carbohydrates. FSANZ approved Stevia as an ingredient in food and beverages in October 2008.
For an all natural, low calorie sweetener made with Stevia, try “Equal Stevia” – a sweetener blend that is perfect for hot beverages or can be sprinkled on fruit or porridge. Equal Stevia is sold in boxes of 40 sticks, ideal for cafes, bars and restaurants. Products
