There are two ways our stevia stands apart. Most stevia extracts on the market use lower concentrations of Rebiana A (the sweetest part of the leaf) which results in that bitter taste we all want to avoid. Of course, this is cheaper for the company but if you despise a bitter sweet flavor in treats – us too! Blech! Our extract has the highest potency of Rebiana A available – 99%.
Our stevia is also so minimally processed, it has not even been granulated which means it remains as a fine white powder. – like a dust. In the world of stevia products this is rather non-conventional, but we wanted to bring you the most natural and minimally processed product possible. When you receive your stevia pouch, tap it on your counter a few times then zip the seal before opening as the powder likes to plume a little when first opened. You’ll find a tiny spoon (1/32 of a tsp.) inside the pouch. This is your “doonk” spoon. Make sure to watch the video on our website about the art of “doonking” your stevia. Too much fun! When adding the powder to your drink or recipe with your doonk, turn spoon downward and gently tap it on the side of your glass or bowl as you empty it out. This will allow the stevia to flow out of the spoon. Don’t put the doonk back in the pouch as you’ll have to dig around in the white powder to find it. Find your doonk its own special home somewhere else in your kitchen.
Our Pure Stevia Extract Powder puts desserts and sweets back on the YES list for those who want to lose weight or watch their blood sugar. It is a zero calorie sweetener and does not raise blood sugar levels. It is considered safe and even beneficial for diabetics or those who suffer from hypoglycemia.
Out of all our Trim Healthy Mama sweeteners, the pure extract is the most economical if you are pinching pennies. A little goes a long way. You only need a few dashes doonks in your smoothies or single serve muffins. Larger cakes may only need ½ to ¾ tsp. to sweeten the entire cake. Start with a very small amount, taste test, then add more if needed.
