Stevia: a cost-effective, versatile natural sweetener & sugar substitute for manufacturers
The body does not metabolise stevia, meaning it has zero calories. Given the choices of today’s increasingly health-conscious consumer, minimising sugar content is a major consideration in product development for food and drink manufacturers.
As such, stevia is perennially popular for dairy products (ice cream, yoghurt, flavoured milks), breakfast cereals, cereal bars, beverages, certain types of confectionery as well as sweet baked goods. Many people will also be familiar with stevia as a table top sweetener.
As well as being helpful for those on a calorie-controlled diet, products containing stevia can suit those suffering from diabetes thanks to its low glycaemic index.
With such a remarkably sweet taste, only a small amount of Stevia is required to deliver the same taste as regular sugar, making it a cost effective ingredient. Food and drink manufacturers also value this ingredient for its stability under wide-ranging pH and heat conditions.
