SweetLeaf is a brand that promotes sugar alternatives that are natural, zero calorie, and zero carb. SweetLeaf water drops, powders and syrups have gained international recognition, earning more than 36 awards for taste, innovation and sustainability. To accomplish all of this, they harness the natural sweetness of the stevia plant and the monk fruit.
What is stevia extract?
The native Guarani people of Paraguay were the first to use the stevia plant for medicinal benefits and as a sweetener. Today, SweetLeaf uses stevia extract in their products as an alternative to regular sugar. Why? Aside from being completely natural and containing no calories or carbs, stevia extract also does not raise blood sugar levels, despite being 30 times sweeter than regular sugar! SweetLeaf Stevia Sweetener packets are also certified paleo by the Paleo Foundation.
What is monk fruit extract?
A small, round food that is part of the gourd family, monk fruit was first discovered by Buddhist monks in Southeast Asia. Like the stevia plant, monk fruit has been used for medicinal purposes and sweetening purposes for centuries. Monk fruit extract also has zero calories and does not increase blood sugar levels. What’s more, it is hundreds of times sweeter than regular sugar! A little truly goes a long way with SweetLeaf monk fruit extract products, which come in both liquid and granular forms.
How to Use SweetLeaf Sugar Alternatives
SweetLeaf water drops come in a variety of flavors, ranging from fruit flavors like lemon lime to dessert flavors like caramel and chocolate. Just a couple drops of these stevia and monk fruit sweeteners will add intense, sweet flavor to any beverage or baking recipe. The brand’s natural sugar alternatives also come in powder packets, sweet tea, and pancake syrups!
