Don't like Stevia? Try Sucralose instead!
Pure Stevia Extract Powder
We love sweet things, but we don't love the negative effects that taking in lots of sugar can do to our bodies.
One method of weight reduction is through the replacement of high calorie, high carbohydrate additives like sugar, with natural, low carbohydrate sweeteners.
Many sugar alternatives are poorly tolerated or simply do not taste very good, but Stevia changes all of that. It redefines what a sugar alternative can be. With absolutely no calories and a great taste, Stevia might be your new way to sweeten up the morning coffee.
What is Stevia Extract?
Stevia leaf extract is taken from the plant Stevia rebaudiana which is also commonly known as sweet leaf. While there are many sweet compounds in the plant extract, rebaudioside A and stevioside are the major components.
Stevia is a naturally sweet, zero calorie extract which can act as a sweetener in cooking and in beverages.
While artificial sweeteners like aspartame might actually increase appetite, Stevia may provide additional weight-loss properties. Studies show that Stevia increases insulin sensitivity and also benefit blood glucose and insulin levels in people.
Stevia products also help reduce overall caloric intake by tricking the body into thinking it is getting calories. When people have low-calorie foods sweetened with Stevia, they tend to eat less later.
While Stevia was able to reduce the amount of calories participants ate, it also helped lower blood glucose levels compared to sucrose. This is why Stevia can be such a great ally in the fight against fat.
How Much Stevia Sweetener Should You Use?
Stevia is quite a bit sweeter than sugar. Keeping this in mind, many people prefer a tiny pinch in their coffee while they might usually use a teaspoon of table sugar. Two teaspoons of sugar in a recipe might only require 1/4 teaspoon of Stevia. For this reason, it might be a good idea to try a little Stevia at first and add more to taste.
