Our Sweeteners

We believe sweetness was meant to be enjoyed. That's why we created products that allow you to reduce sugar, not flavor. Born from the leaves of the stevia plant, our sweetness is rooted in nature along with the firm belief that sweetness does not have to be sacrificed.


Three Ingredients. Infinite Possibilities.

Leafclusterwithcrystals
Truvia® Natural Sweetener is made with simply three ingredients: stevia leaf extract, erythritol and natural flavors. To make Truvia® Natural Sweetener, we first take the sweetest part of the stevia leaf and extract its natural sweetness. 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.

Stevia

The stevia leaf extract used in Truvia® is a high purity sweetener containing the best-tasting parts of the stevia leaf.

Erythritol

Erythritol is a natural sweetener, produced by a fermentation process like beer and cheese. Erythritol is also found in fruits like grapes and pears.

Natural Flavors

Natural flavors are used to bring out the best of Truvia® Natural Sweetener, like pepper or salt or any other spice that would be used to enhance the taste of food.

From Stevia to Truvia® Sweetener

In six stages, the sweetness of stevia makes the journey from harvest to your kitchen. By always following this series of steps, we ensure we obtain the best tasting parts of the stevia leaf to use in our natural, calorie-free sweetener that you can add to all of your favorite dishes.

Stevia begins as a root-cutting cultivated in greenhouses.
It is then transplanted as a seedling to the field in early spring.
When ready, the leaves are harvested and dried.
The leaves are steeped in water to aid in the extraction process.
The sweet extract is then purified to concentrate the best tasting parts of the leaf.
Finally, Truvia® stevia leaf extract is blended with erythritol crystals and natural flavors.
