If you’ve tried stevia in the past and didn’t like it, you may change your mind when you try Omica Organics Stevia. It’s bitter free and un-reconstituted. That means, like other liquid stevias that are first extracted from the stevia plant, processed into a powder and then formulated into liquid, this one is extracted using a proprietary TruExtract process, a gentle method of extraction which delivers a sweetner that is rich in Rebaudioside-A and low in Rebaudioside-C, which eliminates the bitterness.
The higher the levels of Rebaudioside-A and the lower the levels of Rebaudioside-C, the better tasting the stevia.
Omica Organics’ Liquid Stevia is a naturally zero-calorie highly-concentrated direct extract. The result is an aromatic, dynamic sweetness without the bitterness associated with other stevia products. This stevia is cultivated from an extensive network of family-owned stevia farms. Self-sustaining farming methods help preserve the naturally-beneficial phytochemicals of the stevia leaf. The stevia leaves are picked by hand at the peak time of the growing season and then dried naturally with sunlight and fresh air.
For those who are new to stevia, this is a zero calorie sweetener that won’t raise your blood sugar or contribute to tooth decay and is completely safe unlike aspartame, sucralose and saccharin. It’s 15 times sweeter than sugar so a little goes a long way.
- The extracts are naturally concentrated so the recommended serving size is 2 drops (0.1 ml), compared to other liquid stevia extracts with a serving size of 5-8 drops.
- Add VERY SPARINGLY (1-2 drops) to coffee, tea or any other hot or cold beverage or food.
- Use as a substitute for sugar, honey or other sweeteners.
- Shake well before using. No refrigeration required.
“For substituting sugar in recipes this is how I work out the conversion:
1 teaspoon sugar = 2-4 drops stevia
1 tablespoons sugar = 6-9 drops
1 cup sugar = 1 teaspoon”
