Truvía® Safety Research and Reports

Any natural product that has been around for hundreds of years and has the interest of scientists at universities around the world will have decades of research behind it. Stevia is backed by volumes of independent research and reviewed by scientific experts from around the world. These professionals, as well as reputable government administrations such as the FDA have reviewed the side effects of stevia leaf extract as a Truvía® ingredient, and shared findings that support its safety. Global regulatory approvals have been possible because of the rich history of global safety studies and also some modern research.

A study, presented at the International Association for Dental Research General Sessions of July 2010, reports that Truvía® stevia leaf extract, the calorie-free sweetener purified from the leaf of the stevia plant in an aqueous solution, does not lower dental plaque pH.

The study also reported stevia leaf extract is less acidogenic than sucrose (saccharose) solutions and comparable to the currently marketed non-sugar sweetener, sucralose12.

Erythritol, which is used to provide bulk in the Truvía® Natural Sweetener tabletop product, is also tooth friendly. Erythritol is not converted to acids by bacteria in the mouth. Therefore, it doesn't promote tooth decay. The FDA authorized the use of the "does not promote tooth decay" health claim for erythritol. The American Dental Association adopted a position statement recognizing the role of sugar-free foods and medications in maintaining good oral health.
