(Stevia rebaudiana) Stevia is basically a candy bush you can grow in your garden!
So, honey is a whole food. Great! Maple syrup is mineral rich. Woohoo! Sugar, let's face it, does a real nasty number on the human body… STEVIA IS AMAZING! It tastes SO sweet; seriously sweet! Unlike the other sweeteners mentioned, it doesn't raise your blood sugar. Diabetics rejoice! It tastes sweet, but doesn't contain simple sugars. You can prepare Stevia extracts to use in your cooking, but we usually just snack on the leaves when we're feeling like a treat.
