HELLO AND HAPPY SATERDAY!!

 

 

 

Since testing tons of dessert recipes recently, I’ve been noticing the variation in outcomes with trying different sweeteners. I’ve tried agave, maple syrup, and recently the Kiva Organic Stevia. 

 

I haven’t used Stevia in a while as I always found that things turn out too sweet and offer a weird aftertaste. So as a result I typically opt for agave , but always was weary of the processing and didn’t like that it extremely increases the calorie content of recipes. 

 

With all of the recipe testing going on in my tiny apartment, you can bet that I was ecstatic to test this product!

 


I found that this organic and non gmo loose stevia powder to be a million times better in quality and taste than any others I’ve experienced in the past.. 


 

 

The Kiva stevia incorporates erythritol into the ingredients: 

Overall, erythritol appears to be an excellent sweetener.

 

  • It contains almost no calories. (considered a sugar alcohol and has 25 kcal’s)

  • It has 70% of the sweetness of sugar.

  • It doesn’t raise blood sugar or insulin levels, and some studies claim that it does, which in comparison to actual sugar is obviously significantly lower.

  • Human studies show very little side effects… mainly minor digestive issues in some people.

    Studies where animals are fed massive amounts for long periods of time show no adverse effects.

  • I read that in large quantities it has been shown to upset the stomach

 

 

 

If you’re looking to experience some indulgences sans calories, I highly recommend checking out Kiva Organic Stevia !!
