To make Truvía® Natural Sweetener, we first take the sweetest part of the stevia leaf and extract its natural flavor. But stevia leaf extract is 200 times sweeter than sugar, so to balance the sweetness we add a natural sugar alcohol called erythritol. Then we add a special recipe of natural flavors to create great-tasting, zero calorie sweetness. Here’s a little more about our natural ingredients:
