Health Garden’s stevia is a unique blend of all-natural erythritol and a high quality, plant-based stevia. Erythritol is a type of carbohydrate called sugar alcohol made of all-natural, non-GMO corn. Packed with antioxidants and nutrients, stevia also boasts a delicious sweetness.
Health Garden’s Stevia 12oz is produced by drying stevia leaves and steeping them in hot water to extract the essence. Our stevia is blended with erythritol, which is produced by fermenting the natural sugar found in corn. Health Garden’s erythritol is derived from non-GMO corn, while our stevia is sourced from Spain rather than China.
Extensive short and long-term studies have concluded that stevia is safe to use in daily consumption. Stevia can help control diabetes, hypertension and obesity when used as part of a healthy lifestyle. It also has no effect on blood sugar levels, and is 100% safe for diabetics to consume.

How to use?:
Due to its ability to dissolve quickly and easily, stevia is recommended for use in beverages and liquids. Add stevia to your favorite hot drinks, such as coffee, tea or hot chocolate, or use stevia in cold drinks, like lemonade, cocktails, and sparkling water.
Stevia can also be added to smoothies, yogurts, homemade sauces, marinades, jams, and salad dressings. Try it in a variety of foods until you discover what works for you!
Erythritol is unique among sugar alcohols because 90% of erythritol is absorbed before it reaches the large intestine. Therefore, it does not cause gastric distress or have laxative effects the way some other sugar alcohols are known to do! Erythritol, or products containing erythritol, may be a good choice for people with sensitive stomachs who are adversely affected by other sugar alcohols.
Erythritol is about 65% as sweet as sugar, contains zero calories, does not affect blood sugar levels and does not cause tooth decay.
How does xylitol help? The bacteria are unable to digest xylitol, which reduces the overall amount of bacteria. No acid is formed so the protective enamel layer is unharmed. The reduction in acid also keeps the pH level of saliva neutral which helps protect the teeth. In addition, without sugar the bacteria has trouble sticking to teeth which casues a decrease in plaque. Xylitol can even stimulate saliva to repair damaged enamel! Many brands of toothpaste and mouthwash include xylitol for its powerful impact.
