Why do most sugar substitutes containing stevia cost so much more than normal household sugar? The steviol glycosides obtained from the stevia plant cannot be enjoyed in their pure form as they are 200 to 300 sweeter. One teaspoon would be enough for an entire cake! You would probably find it difficult to find the dosage you need. To make handling this easier for you, we have put a lot of effort into developing suitable dosage forms for every use case. One way is by enriching the fine small glycosides of the stevia plant with erythritol. To receive the perfect mixture and homogeneity, the individual ingredients today undergo a highly complex mixing process that ensures the high quality of our SteviaSweet products
