FAQs

WHAT IS STEVIA?

Stevia is a natural extract from the leaves of Stevia Rebaudiana, a herb which is native to South America. Stevia leaves contain special compounds called steviol glycosides, also called stevia leaf extracts. These extracts are naturally sweet, but contain very few calories, no sugar and d not have an impact on blood sugar levels. 

 

​DOES STEVIA HAVE AN AFTER TASTE?

Modern Nature has developed a unique recipe that uses the sweetest parts of the stevia plant. This means we can leave out most of the compounds that give other stevia-based sweeteners a licorice-like aftertaste. We also balance the flavours of natural stevia with a few natural ingredients, giving our stevia products an authentically sweet and pure taste.​​​

 

IS STEVIA SAFE FOR ME TO USE?

Stevia is approved as safe by the European Food Safety Authority and permitted for use as a sweetener in the UK by the Food Standards Agency. Stevia is a natural extract from the leaves of the stevia plant, which has been by the indigenous people of Paraguay for over 1500 years.
