Foodstirs has created a proprietary organic sweetener blend, made of 100% natural ingredients: Stevia leaf, Erythritol, and a little cane sugar for optimum texture and taste. This allows our products to still taste delicious without the high amount of sugar.
Originally found in Paraguay and native to the Sunflower family, the Stevia leaf provides 200x the sweetness of sugar but has no caloric value nor does it raise blood sugar levels. Each stevia leaf has many sweet compounds, some are sweeter than others and some can be slightly bitter. We researched the many stevia options and found the leaf combination without the bitterness.
Erythritol naturally occurs in some fruits and vegetables, and fermented foods like soy sauce. It is part of a family of sweeteners called sugar alcohols. Erythritol has minimal calories and a low impact on your blood sugar, while still having about 70% of the sweetness of sugar.
