The vanilla used in this product is produced from high-quality vanilla beans made by Singing Dog Vanilla. This creates a superior tasting vanilla product.

The Two Forms of Stevia
There are 2 forms of Stevia that are presently sold in the US. One is approved as a dietary supplement by the FDA and the other as a sweetener. NuNaturals sells both forms. Their sweetener line is called NuStevia Sweetener. The product that we have introduced is NuStevia Sweetener, Stevia Baking Blend. In the future we will introduce table top sweeteners as well.
All of NuNaturals other Stevia products are dietary supplements. Why continue to sell Stevia as a dietary supplement? The answer is complex. The form of Stevia that is FDA approved as a sweetener is an extract of Stevia that contains greater than 95% of rebaudiosides, a component of the Stevia extract. The reasons are complex why the FDA has approved one form but not the other seeing how both forms have a good deal of research regarding safety. The main reason seems to be that the rebaudioside extract is seen as an isolated compound of Stevia whereas the dietary supplement form is more of a whole extract comprising of all the components of the Stevia extract. The FDA traditionally prefers to approve single components versus multiple component compounds.
They will continue to offer the dietary supplement form based on the steviosides extract (more of a whole plant extract) for 2 reasons, taste and cost. They also believe base on safety studies and population use for decades by a very large number of people that the stevioside form of Stevia is safe.
Their dietary supplement form of Stevia has a superior taste to the rebaudioside extract. The rebaudioside extracts have a lingering somewhat unpleasant aftertaste. NuNaturals NuStevia dietary supplement products do not have any unpleasant lingering aftertastes. Most people prefer our NuStevia dietary supplement extracts to any other Stevia extract on the market including other dietary supplement forms of the Stevia extract.
Because the cost of the stevioside extract is about 7 times less expensive than the rebaudioside extract, the cost per serving is less for the dietary supplement form versus the sweetener form of Stevia when considering sweetening power of both. In order to get the same sweetness from rebaudioside products on the market, you would have to use 2-3 packets to get the sweetness of 2 tsp of sugar. With NuNaturals NuStevia packets, you would only need to use 1 packet to taste the same sweetness.
This product does not contain gluten. The Maltodextrin used in our White Stevia Powder products is derived from corn. The Erythritol used in our NoCarbs Blend products is derived from corn.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know NuNaturals better. Since 1989, NuNaturals has been producing natural foods and dietary supplements. NuNaturals has specialized in a complete line of natural healthy sweeteners including their line of NuStevia zero calorie, low and no carb and low glycemic index Stevia products. Realizing that one of the key problems leading to health problems was the amount of sugar in the human diet, NuNaturals researched alternatives to sugar. Since Stevia would allow people to enjoy food and beverages with a sweetener that was healthy, they put all of their efforts in finding the best tasting Stevia extracts available. In 1996, NuNaturals was one of the first companies to market Stevia in the United States. They continue to research and develop ways to further improve the taste of NuStevia and other natural sweeteners such as Xylitol, Erythritol and Tagatose. NuNaturals also produces and continues to research and develop innovative healthy baking ingredients.
