The stevia leaf is an herb in the chrysanthemum family, which grows wild as a small shrub in parts of Paraguay and Brazil.

A natural scientist named Antonio Bertoni first recorded its usage by native tribes in 1887.
Will stevia raise my blood sugar levels?
According to some research, it may actually lower blood sugar levels. However, this research has yet to be confirmed and contradictory results make any conclusions premature.

However, stevia often can be a part of a healthy diet for anyone with blood sugar problems, as it does not raise blood sugar levels.

O.N.E., One Natural Experience, is a beverage company with a deep commitment to the Earth and its people. Their products are responsibly sourced and harvested, filtered naturally and packaged in environmentally conscious Tetra Paks (to see information provided by their Tetra Pak manufacturing explaining the impact of Tetra Pak on the environment click here). O.N.E. is actively helping educate people worldwide about issues of hydration and the prevention of childhood obesity. At O.N.E., they believe that the success of their company can, and will, be in harmony with environmental stewardship and good corporate citizenship.
Their founder, Rodrigo Veloso, is from Brazil, where he grew up drinking coconut water – both for its benefits and delicious taste. Brazilians give coconut water to their babies when they’re dehydrated, as a treat for kids when they’re hot and tired from playing, and of course everyone on the beautiful beaches of Brazil refreshes by drinking cool, coconut water.
A born entrepreneur, Rodrigo was formulating in his mind how he would bring the concept to the U.S. but he didn’t just want to become another beverage company. He wanted to be an advocate for healthy, natural beverages and educate people about replacing sugary, artificial ones. He was passionate about starting a company that would harvest products responsibly, be a partner with is suppliers, retailers and distributors, package them in a responsible manner, and give back to those less fortunate.
While he was an MBA student at Fundacao Getulio Vargas in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Rodrigo developed a business plan to brand and launch a line of healthy, natural beverages (coconut water being the first) in the U.S. market, and received accolades from the business world. He was the winner of the largest Latin American Business Plan competition in 2005, and the renowned Brazilian business magazine, Exame, (the BusinessWeek of Brazil) named it the Fourth Best Business Innovation of Brazil in 2005, ahead of products from Ford, Petrobras and Unilever.
He then entered the plan in the world’s largest international business plan competition, Moot Corp, at the University of Texas. Also a participant in the competition was Emile Fritz, who would become his wife.
Combining his business acumen with a passion to introduce people to a healthy alternative to artificial and sugary drinks, Rodrigo moved to Los Angeles to launch O.N.E and make his entrance into the highly competitive U.S. beverage industry. O.N.E. Coconut Water made its 2006 debut at Whole Foods Markets to rave reviews and quickly became the #1 selling alternative beverage in all Southern California Whole Foods Markets.
Rodrigo and Emilie quickly grew the business – in the office by day and at stores doing demos in the evenings and on weekends. In just one year, O.N.E. established national distribution with the top natural/specialty distributors, a national sales brokerage network and 4,000 points-of-sale in the U.S. and Canada.
In 2009, O.N.E. grew to more than 30 employees as a result of the company’s first round of institutional investment funding and signing a distribution agreement with The Pepsi Beverage Company. An extension of its coconut water line was introduced with four new flavors called O.N.E. Coconut Water with a Splash, which immediately gained national distribution in Kroger stores and Whole Foods Market.
Distribution exploded in 2011, with nearly half of grocery stores now carrying O.N.E. as well as Convenience Stores, Drug Stores and online retailers such as Amazon.com.
O.N.E. drinks are packaged in environmentally conscious Tetra Pak cartons, underscoring the company’s commitment to the Earth, and the company is a supporter of the business platform of conscious capitalism to educate consumers about the importance of proper hydration in all stages and phases of life – especially for mothers and children. O.N.E. supports several nonprofit organizations – most importantly, Healthy Child Healthy World.
O.N.E. is collaborating with the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, an initiative that supports schools nationwide in developing healthier environments with the goal of reversing the trend of childhood obesity, and has partnered with the American Heart Association and the William J. Clinton Foundation.
