Notes to Editors:
Sprite’s stevia-based sweetener is an extract of the stevia plant, which originates from Paraguay. The plant’s leaf is a unique source of intense, natural sweetness. For two centuries it has been harvested and used in South America to sweeten foods. The stevia-based sweetener has the benefit of being sweeter than sugar, but without added calories. The stevia extract is ideal for Sprite as it perfectly complements the lemon and lime flavours.
