Essential ingredients in the formulation of light or sugar-free recipes, intense sweeteners are used more and more often in food & beverage formulations.
Stevia extracts are a natural sweetening solution. Extracted from the leaves of a small shrub harvested Paraguay, "steviol glycosides" are a family of natural molecules that have a sweetening power ranging from 60 to 350 times that of sucrose. Non-fermentable, non-digestible, Stevia extracts therefore have a virtually zero heat load.
In powder, granular or liquid form, these extracts produced in France have an excellent quality / price ratio.
Obtained by infusion of the leaves in hot water it offers a sweetening power equivalent to 2 to 4 times the sucrose.
The organic version will be available very soon.
