NuNaturals, makers of NuStevia, is offering our readers a giveaway consisting of their all natural zero calorie sweetener.
According to steviabenefits.org:
What exactly is stevia and what benefits does it provide to consumers? Stevia rebaudiana (Bertoni) is a South American plant traditionally used to sweeten beverages and make tea. The word "stevia" might refer to the entire plant or to a crude preparation (liquid or powder) of dried stevia leaves. The sweet-tasting components of the plant – called steviol glycosides – can be isolated and purified from the leaves and are now added to foods, beverages and tabletop sweeteners in the U.S. and elsewhere. The process of isolating the steviol glycosides has been compared to "steeping" tea leaves.In addition to providing the giveaway products, NuNaturals is offering the following promotion to TDIV readers:
Several steviol glycosides are recognized as safe as general purpose sweeteners by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. As a sugar substitute with zero calories, stevia sweeteners can help reduce or replace calories in foods and beverages and offer low and no-calorie alternatives for people looking to lose and control weight. They are also a suitable option for people with diabetes, since studies show that consumption does not increase blood glucose levels.
