Stevia: The Plant with a Sweet Secret

Truvia Natural Sweetener
Nature plays a big part in bringing Truvia stevia leaf extract from the field and making it a welcome addition to your table and to the products that you love. The natural sweetness you taste comes from the leaves of the stevia plant.
But, these are not ordinary leaves. During its growing season, the stevia plant produces sweet compounds. Once the leaves have reached their peak of sweetness, they're harvested, dried and soaked in water, much like brewing tea. After the water absorbs the sweet essence of the leaves in the first extraction, the mixture is strained to remove plant matter. Then, it's purified to separate Truvia stevia leaf extract, the best-tasting part of the stevia leaf. Water is evaporated and Truvia stevia leaf extract crystals form. Finally, these sweet crystals are evaporated one last time in a mixture of water and food-grade alcohol to ensure that the sweet granules are of the highest purity and quality.
The supply chain for stevia has been in the planning for the past seven years. It has been built with a vision to support growers while delivering natural zero calorie sweetness to consumers. In building this supply chain the Truvia business has leveraged decades of experience in many mature and developing agricultural businesses. Truvia's commitment takes both time and patience – to find the right partners, develop and implement standards, understand the impact on natural resources and to be a good community partner in the areas where stevia plants are grown and harvested. Truvia has developed comprehensive standards, set clear performance targets and auditing processes.
The result? Honestly sweet taste made with nutrients from the earth. That's Truvia stevia leaf extract … from the field to your table.
