Superfood Saturday – Stevia

Surely you have heard of today’s superfood – Stevia. Stevia is popular as an alternative sweetener, perfectly safe in moderation.

Stevia is a bonafide zero-calorie sweetener, and it won’t raise blood sugar levels (helpful for us Diabetics, but beneficial for everyone!). Various studies show that this effect has a positive influence on regulating the pancreas and may be a healthy sugar alternative for those with Diabetes.

It’s great to use in baking too. Stevia provides the sweetness your baked goods need without the extra. Stevia is much sweeter than sugar, so a little goes a long way. Because of this, be sure to adjust your recipe accordingly!
