Sweetly Stevia® has a patented water extraction process, meaning there is no longer a taste-tradeoff often found with other sweetener options. It’s 100% natural and 100% delicious, all the way from our farms in South America.

 

Where does Sweetly Stevia come from?

Our stevia plots are located in the Peruvian region of San Martin, which has the ideal conditions for the growth of stevia in terms of precipitation, sunlight, temperature, and ground conditions. Once cultivated, the leaves are harvested by the local communities of Brazil, inspected for the highest quality, processed in Czech, and packaged in the United States.

 

What makes Sweetly Stevia so sweet?

The sweetener component of the plant is a crystal-white transparent color completely natural in the unaltered Stevia plant structure. These crystal-like substances actually sit on the surface of the leaf and are generated by the plant to cover its surface to protect the leaf underneath. You can think of these crystalline structures as stevia’s internal “sunscreen”.

These sweet-tasting components of the stevia plant are extracted from the leaves and are called steviol glycosides. Steviol glycosides can be isolated and purified from the leaves of the stevia plant and can be up to 400 times sweeter than sucrose. Each steviol glycoside has a particular taste profile and sweetness intensity.

What is Sweetly Stevia's farm to table process?


Farming

Our stevia is a non-GMO crop and its farming, extraction, and purification require less water, land, and energy to produce the same amount of sweetness found in other natural sweeteners (including sugar).
 

Harvesting

We establish long term relationships with local farmers in Brazil with a view to helping improve the lives of the communities who live there.
 

Extraction & Purification

Unless you want to chew the leaves, stevia leaves need to have their sweetness extracted from them (result = steviosides). We use a patented process that extracts and purifies the sugary goodness using only water. A bit like giving our leaves a power shower.

Natural and pure, our extraction process uses 100% safe and natural techniques to draw out the steviosides from the leaves of the stevia plant. Many sugar substitutes use ethanol, methanol, or even rubbing alcohol to produce their stevia, but through our special patented process, we use only water to extract and purify the sweet stevia goodness. This results in 100% natural, granulated stevia that tastes just like sugar!

Blending

Our high purity stevia can be up to four times sweeter than sugar. In this pure extracted form, steviosides are too sweet for human taste buds, so companies like us need to add fillers to make the sweetness more palatable. We only use natural ingredients of the highest quality so our blend is 100% natural.

Packaging & Shipping

We use sustainably sourced materials wherever possible. For example, our shelf-ready casing uses FSC Certified material & our ink is environmentally friendly. We even pick our transport companies due to their efforts to reduce environmental impact.

Via your chosen retailer, Sweetly Stevia® low calorie-sweetener is refreshingly uncomplicated. Sprinkle it on your cereal. Spoon it in your tea and coffee. It won’t end up on your conscience or your thighs!

What is Sweetly Stevia's carbon footprint?

Since the beginning, we’ve prided ourselves on our commitments in three areas: sharing and improving communities, stewarding natural resources, and sourcing responsibility. These business drivers have led to the creation of a common vision across the Sweetly Stevia® brand, and a way of thinking that continually seeks out economic, environmental, and social opportunities.
