Have you ever heard about STEVIA?
If you would like to make a new experience, add Stevia in your meal instead of saccharose or aspartam.
Since september the 3rd the French law owes the « sweet tooth » that your are, to use Stevia as a new sweetener : it is naturel and calorie free !
So what is it exactely?
It is a South American plant…(nothing illegal at all, you teaser!) that has been used as a sweetener by the Guarani Indians of Paraguay for hundreds of years.
Stevia is known to be very efficient because it contains « rebaudiosid A » a natural extract that can be thirty times sweeter than sugar.
Is it that new as it sounds to be?
I am sure that some of you still know this way of “not adding” sugar. This product is normally not allowed in France …But it is still possible to find some in health and organic food shop. Actually you can buy ground leaves (the same as Guarani Indians are using) but not the rebaudiosid A’ powder:
Food manufacturers in France are happy to be the first and the only one in Europe to be allowed to use the stevia extract Rebaudioside-A .
They are still bounded to Coca Cola and Cargill…some of the most famous sugar daddy’s of the world.
