SteviaSugar

SteviaSugar is extracted from the stevia plant, which originated in South America, and Swedish sugar beet. The combination provides the calorie-free sweetness of Steviol glycosides with the full flavour of sugar. SteviaSugar is intended for consumers who wish to use less sugar but still enjoy the good properties of sugar such as good flavour and texture.

A spoon of SteviaSugar is equivalent to a spoon of ordinary sugar, but only contains half the calories.*


* 1 dl of SteviaSugar sweetens just as much as 1 dl of ordinary sugar, but weighs only half as much and contains 50% fewer calories.

STEVIA SUGAR BEET
• The stevia plant originated in Paraguay where it grows wild. The Guarani Indians have used the plant as a sweetener for hundreds of years. • Sugar beet is a traditional, cultivated crop that has been farmed locally in Sweden for more than a hundred years.
• Stevia is also called sweetleaf, and is related to the sunflower. • Sugar has several excellent properties. In addition to its natural sweetness and flavour, it provides natural yeasting, volume, texture and colour to baked products, for example.
• Steviol glycoside is the name of the sweetening agent that is extracted from the stevia plant. It is 200–300 times sweeter than sugar, but has zero calories. • Sugar also has a preservative effect that helps prevent crystallisation in ice-cream and frozen desserts.
• Today, stevia is grown throughout the world; in Paraguay, Brazil, Central America, China and Thailand. • Sugar also enhances the flavour of other ingredients, and helps keep that freshly-baked flavour for longer.
