Product Description

Stevia is a plant that comes from South America. It has many medicinal purposes, however, it is best known for its use as a sweetener without the calories.

Stevia is becoming popular as an alternative to artificial sweeteners and sugars. For those who have blood sugar related issues or weight issues, sugar is a great substitute.
