Unless you want to chew on the leaves, stevia leaves need to have their sweetness extracted from them (result = steviosides).
However, many extraction processes do not use 100% natural techniques to draw out the steviosides. Many use ethanol, methanol, or even rubbing alcohol to extract and purify. This not-so-natural process can result in a bitter after-taste. We use a patented process that extracts and purifies the sugary goodness using only water. Our process is 100% natural and results in a product that Genuinely Tastes Like Sugar.
Most stevia products taste bitter and leave an aftertaste. However without including alcohol and artificial ingredients, our product genuinely tastes like sugar.
A taste panel conducted by Oxford Brookes University’s Consumer Quantitative Research Food science Department found that Sweetly Stevia ® was not bitter and did not linger in the mouth afterwards. 70% of adults in the taste panel could not tell the difference between Sweetly Stevia ® and Sugar.
Whilst not as cheap as sugar, Sweetly Stevia ® is healthier and better value for money than other sweeteners.
