Top chefs choose SweetLeaf® for its versatility, adding sweetness without added sugars to recipes

GILBERT, AZ (December 20, 2018) – Executive Chef Admir Alibasic of Ben & Jack’s Steak House in New York City has joined the growing ranks of top chefs using SweetLeaf® Stevia Sweetener in their recipes. Chef Alibasic is featured in a segment of “A Taste of New York,” a weekly cable TV show targeting an active, influential and educated audience in New York. The segment aired through mid-December on Time Warner Cable and can be seen on social media sites including YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, Twitter video links, Pinterest, Tumblr, and more.

Chef Alibasic created several recipes. SweetLeaf® Stevia Teriyaki Stuffed Chicken and Brussels Sprouts with a Teriyaki Glaze both using SweetLeaf® Organic Stevia packets. And Chef created a Martini, using SweetLeaf® Liquid Stevia Sweet Drops® Vanilla Crème and Coconut flavors. All recipes are delicious for holiday entertaining.

“SweetLeaf® Stevia is perfect for making many sauces,” Chef Alibasic says. “I used two to three packets, which gives the perfect taste to the Stuffed Chicken and the teriyaki sauce that I used for Brussels sprouts for ‘A Taste of New York.’

“Whether you are one of the top chefs in New York City or cooking in your own kitchen,” said Carol May, CEO of Wisdom Natural Brands, maker of SweetLeaf® Stevia Sweetener, “SweetLeaf® is an essential ingredient to have on hand for those who are seeking to reduce added sugars without losing any of the delicious taste you desire.”

Chefs across the country have said that their number one request from customers are foods including desserts with little to no added sugars. The American Heart Association recommends that men consume no more than 150 calories per day, or about 9 teaspoons, of added sugars per day and women consume no more than 100 calories per day, or about 6 teaspoons. Children under the age of 2 should not consume sugars at all.
