Truvia natural sweetener is the first great-tasting, zero-calorie natural sweetener that's a miracle of nature, not chemistry. Unlike most stevia-based Sweets, Sweeteners, which are typically a mixture of many components from the stevia leaf, Truvia natural sweetener is made with rebiana, the best tasting part of the stevia leaf.
Sprinkle it on your grape fruit. Spoon it in your coffee. One packet of Truvia natural sweetener provides the same sweetness as two teaspoons of sugar. Truvia natural sweetener is a great alternative for people with diabetes. It is also kosher certified. Truvia natural sweetener can be used in cooking and baking.
Erythritol has a very low caloric content; its value is 0.2 calories per gram for food labeling purposes in the United States and 0 (zero) calories per gram for food labeling purposes in Japan. This very low calorie value is due to erythritols unique absorption and elimination process which does not require the metabolism of erythritol.
Erythritol is rapidly absorbed in the small intestine due to its small molecular size and structure. Several clinical studies conducted in Europe and Japan have shown that more than 90% of ingested erythritol is absorbed and excreted unchanged in urine within a 24-hour period. This digestive pathway allows less than 5% of ingested erythritol to reach the large intestine and be fermented into volatile fatty acids or metabolized into carbon dioxide. As a result, foods containing substantial amounts of erythritol are very unlikely to cause gaseous and laxation side effects.
