Since its approval by FDA as a food additive in 2008, stevia has been used to replace artificial sweeteners in many food and beverage products including those produced by industry giants like PepsiCo, Coca Cola, and Hain Celestial Group.
Used for hundreds of years by the Guarani Indians of South America as a food sweetener and weight management aid, stevia’s popularity is growing at an astounding rate: NP Nutra cited its worldwide market value has gone from $336 million in 2014 to a projected $578 million at the end of this year.
Two hundred to 300 times sweeter than table sugar, stevia contains phytochemicals quercetin, kaempferol, apigenin, and chlorogenic acid that may support a healthy heart and weight. Supplementing with stevia may also help maintain healthy blood pressure, blood sugar and uric acid levels, improve oral health and digestion, and promote healthy hair and scalp.
Unlike other stevia products currently on the market, NP Nutra’s Stevia P.E. 90% (organic) is certified 100% organic and contains no GMO additives or chemicals.
“At NP Nutra we take pride in sourcing and offering our customers only the best quality products. We are very happy to add this premium organic stevia to our expanding Nutra Organics line of ingredients,” said Thomas Walton, founder and chief executive officer.
