Sweet the pHealthy Way!

Stevia Concentrate – No After Taste, Fun & Alive!

Sugar is the one thing that everyone has challenges giving up when they are trying to become pH balanced or develop a healthier lifestyle. At least I know it was one of the conversions I worked on first.

My philosophy, along with Small Changes Make Big Differences, is that we want to replace whatever we eat now that isn’t good for us with something that tastes better, feels better and is better for us – that way we won’t want to go back to what we used to do.

Sugar is a big deal to me because I’m Scottish and I drink a lot of tea (which is another story, but a Small Change that worked was switching my Black British Tea for African Red (Rooibos), but I still had the problem that I drank sweet and white. This article speaks to the “sweet” part of the tea! (White, or creamer, became Soy Creamer)

What I found out was that a high rebaudioside stevia increased the opportunity of having NO after taste (after trying every OTC stevia). Locating this is was a challenge that became a quest. It is imported from Asia through Canada to us and I think it is the best of the best.

The size of a sesame seed equals about a teaspoon – you see it is strictly the top leaves of the stevia plant, no stems, no roots, no additives, no fillers – dried and presented. A small jar lasts us several months and here are some of the things we use it for:

Soft Drinks:

  • Mineral Water, Ginger Juice & Stevia (glass at a time)
  • Mineral Water, Unsweetened Cherry Juice & Stevia

Use it wherever you would use sugar, we make carob chocolates with stirred almonds, walnuts, etc. – this is a fun great tasting substitute!

pH Best = Tastes Better, Feels Better, Better for us

What is Stevia?

The family of extracts of the Stevia plant which are taken from the leaves of the Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni plant. The extracts are known as Steviosides and Rebaudiosides depending on which part of the plant is isolated. These extracts are approximately 300 times sweeter than sugar unless diluted. In 1970 the Japanese began extracting the pure sweet powder found in the leaf for testing and commercial use. Stevia sweeteners have been fully approved and widely used in Japan since 1970 in food products and soft drinks and for table-top use. It is also fully approved and in use in Brazil, where it is also recommended for diabetics. As a result of the Health Freedom Act passed in September 1995 by Congress, Stevia leaves and the extract of Stevia leaves (Steviosides & Rebauiosides), are allowable for import and commerce in the United States of America, if they are explicitly labeled as a DIETARY SUPPLEMENT, or for use as a dietary ingredient of a dietary supplement. The FDA still has not approved this product for use as a food additive due to lack of costly testing in the United States and suspected lobbying pressure by chemical companies producing synthetic sugar substitutes.
