Better Stevia is a zero-calorie sweetener that uses the whole leaf extract from the Stevia plant to preserve its pure sweet taste. This is not the same as other products that isolate only specific elements such as Reb A. This sweetener from NOW Foods are treated with a special enzymatic process that results in a cleaner and superior tasting sweetener.

The company’s attention to quality guarantees freshness in each Stevia sugar sweetener that they provide. It is as close as you can get to pure sugar without the guilt of consuming additional calories. It makes a healthy substitute for the table sugar and other artificial sweeteners out there. The pure Stevia plant extract from the company is easily absorbed and metabolized into our bodies when consumed.

Aside from that, its taste is about 60 to 100 times sweeter than refined sugar, so only a very small amount is needed to sweeten your desserts, foods, and beverages. Not all such products that you find out there are the same. The NOW company take special measures in order to retain all of the great natural qualities of pure and better-tasting Stevia.
