Natural Sweeteners - Sugar Alternatives
Indigo Herbs Sugar Alternatives is a selection of Pure Green Leaf Stevia, Stevia Powder and Xylitol Powder. These natural alternatives offer varying degrees of sweetness and are an excellent, healthy alternative to regular sugar.
In its native South America, Stevia was used as a traditional herbal remedy alongside its consumption as a natural sweetener. Known as “nature’s sweetest leaf”, Stevia is around 30 – 100 times sweeter than sugar.
Xylitol has a long history of use in Finland for its benefits to oral health, as well as popularity as a natural sweetener. Extracted from birch trees, Xylitol is not an artificial sweetener, it is a naturally occurring sweet crystalline carbohydrate that is present in almost all fruits and vegetables.
