SweetLeaf® Flavored Stevia Drops: the Latest Healthy Eating Craze (Part 2 in a 3-Part Series)

One of the fastest ways to slim down and improve your health is to kick your daily soda habit. Calories from beverages make up 21% of the total daily calories consumed by Americans over two years old.* These are empty calories, with absolutely no nutritional value. Switching to diet soft drinks only replaces the calories with unwanted chemicals.

Drinking water instead of soft drinks is the ideal solution. Water provides proper hydration for your body and keeps your skin glowing. To make water more enjoyable so you will drink more, how about a product offering flavor without calories, carbohydrates or artificial sweeteners! SweetLeaf® Liquid Stevia gives you everything you want without the stuff you don’t want and it comes in 14 fabulous flavors with zero calories, zero carbs and zero glycemic index.

SweetLeaf® Liquid Stevia offer endless, guilt-free options to tease your taste buds when added to favorite foods and drinks. Consumers are quickly catching on to the calorie-free, zero glycemic option. SweetLeaf’s® Facebook page (www.facebook.com/sweetleafstevia) reveals fans are adding Vanilla Crème to sparkling water to mimic a cream soda, Lemon Drop to zest up plain water, and English Toffee to apples for a caramel apple taste sensation. Still others add their favorite flavor drops to yogurt, oatmeal, milk, smoothies and coffee. At a recent grocery store grand opening, early-morning shoppers lined up for samples of coffee with SweetLeaf® Chocolate flavored drops – essentially a quick mocha without the added sugar.

SweetLeaf® Liquid Stevia drops are not only delicious, they are convenient as well. Available in easy-to-use dropper bottles, the liquid stevia drops require no waiting for the sweetener to dissolve, making it great for those on the go.

SweetLeaf® Liquid Stevia also comes in Valencia Orange, Chocolate Raspberry, Root Beer, Apricot Nectar, Hazlenut, Cinnamon, Peppermint, Grape, Chocolate and Berry. Combining flavors offers even more flavorful choices. SteviaClear® is available for consumers who just want to enhance their food or beverages without any additional flavor.

About SweetLeaf Stevia® Sweetener

It all started with one man who had a dream – James May, Founder of Wisdom Natural Brands®.

Stevia is a naturally sweet herb native to Paraguay that has been consumed for centuries. After tasting stevia leaves given to him by a Peace Corps worker, May made it his mission to bring the extract from the deliciously sweet plant to the United States. May is world known as “The Father of Stevia.” The process involves taking the highest-quality leaves of the stevia plant and extracting their naturally sweet taste with only cool, purified water – no chemicals, solvents or additives that adulterate and cover up the great taste created by nature.

May first traveled to Paraguay to import stevia in 1982. His most satisfying victory came in 2008, when GRAS Associates and Life Science Research Office, two completely independent panels of scientists, awarded SweetLeaf Stevia® GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) status, pursuant to FDA regulations. This allowed SweetLeaf® products made from its new, revolutionary extraction technology to be labeled as sweeteners. SweetLeaf® could finally use the word “sweet” to describe its product, now known as SweetLeaf Stevia® Sweetener. The FDA granted a no-questions letter to SweetLeaf’s® GRAS status in 2009, validating all the hard work done by May over more than a quarter of a century.

Wisdom Natural Brands®, a leading U.S. manufacturer of stevia products, offers SweetLeaf Sweetener® in convenient double-serving packets. SweetLeaf Stevia® Sweetener is sold in boxes containing either 35 or 70 packets. Each packet replaces two teaspoons of sugar. SweetLeaf® is also sold in the SweetLeaf Stevia Plus® Shaker Bottle for easy home use and SweetLeaf SteviaTabs Dissolvable Tablets for easy on-the-go use.

Today, May is a leading expert on stevia and travels across the world promoting the benefits of the stevia plant.
