What is Truvía® Nectar?

Truvía® Nectar is a liquid stevia sweetener blend with honey that has 50% fewer calories per serving than sugar. With just two grams of sugar per ½ tsp. serving, Truvía® Nectar adds honey sweetness with fewer calories and fewer total grams of sugar than a serving of sugar – and because Truvía® Nectar is twice as sweet as honey, sugar and agave, you only need to use half as much.

A Closer Look at Our Ingredients

Truvía® Nectar contains just 5 ingredients: honey, sugar, water, stevia leaf extract and citric acid.  

  • A blend of the highest quality honey is used to give Truvía® Nectar its recognizable honey sweetness.    
  • Stevia leaf extract is used in addition to honey to sweeten Truvía® Nectar – while limiting total sugar and calories.
  • Sugar helps maintain the smooth texture of Truvía® Nectar and helps prevents crystallization due to the addition of honey.
  • Citric acid is included to maintain freshness.

Can be Part of a Diabetes-Friendly Diet

With 2g of usable carbohydrate per ½ teaspoon serving, Truvía® Nectar can be a delicious part of a balanced, carb-conscious lifestyle. For comparison, honey has 6 grams of usable carbohydrate per 1 teaspoon serving, and sugar has 4 grams of usable carbohydrate per 1 teaspoon serving.
