Oh, Sweet Stevia: Nutrition Facts

Oh, Sweet Stevia: Nutrition Facts

Craving something sugary? Our taste buds crave wonderful sweet flavors and that’s what keeps us coming back for more. But don’t let those sweet cravings crash your diet and rot your teeth. Instead, try the sweet leaves of the stevia plant!

Stevia is actually an herb you can grow in your garden along with basil and sage. It produces a leaf that has traditionally been used for hundreds of years in Brazil and Paraguay to sweeten teas, strengthen medicines and more. Stevia is calorie free and also what gives Betsy’s Best its signature sweet taste.

Stevia Nutrition Facts:

According to LiveStrong.org the Stevia leaf contains a variety of nutrients, including:

  • Proteins
  • Fibers
  • Carbohydrates
  • Iron
  • Phosphorus
  • Calcium
  • Potassium
  • Sodium
  • Magnesium
  • Zinc
  • Vitamins A and C

“However, in the form generally marketed to the public, these nutrients do not appear. FDA lists stevia as having no vitamins or nutrients, even in a 1-teaspoon triple serving. The presence or absence of nutrients in the stevia leaf may be irrelevant given the minute serving size of stevia.”

Make room in your cabinet for this wonderful sweetener

Start using it as a replacement for granular sugar. Stevia comes in a powder or liquid form, and how you plan on using it may influence your choice. However, when buying stevia at the store, pay particular attention to the label, because not all packets of stevia are pure. Since it’s such a concentrated powder, many manufacturers add fillers to add more bulk. Many of these fillers are actually maltodextrin, dextrose, and other forms of real sugar. To keep it simple, look for pure stevia or stevia mixed with inulin. Or better yet – go to your local nursery and pick out your own stevia plant.

Now that you know all about stevia’s nutrition facts, the next time you taste the sweet goodness of Betsy’s Best Gourmet Nut and Seed Butters you’ll know they’re just as nutritious as they are delicious!
