Stevia is a sturdy green plant whose leaves contain a unique source of natural sweetness.
It’s grown all over the world, and is fast becoming one of the most popular crops on the market as more food and drink manufacturers look to use stevia plant extract as a zero-calorie sweetener to reduce the amount of sugar in their products. We currently use it in some of our drinks like Sprite, Coca-Cola Life and glaceau vitaminwater.
Not only is stevia changing
The stevia plant is native to Paraguay, but most modern day cultivation of stevia happens in China and South America. Commercial stevia is not grown in the rainforest, and in fact the majority of the world’s stevia harvest comes from plains areas.
The stevia plant belongs to the chrysanthemum family, and its leaves contain a unique source of natural sweetness. Sweeteners made from stevia plant extract have zero calories, and have been used in South America to flavour drinks for more than 200 years. We use stevia plant extract to reduce the sugar and calories in some of our drinks such as Sprite, glaceau vitaminwater and Coca-Cola Life.
