Limiting added sugar in our diets is worth doing. We are eating more sugars and sweeteners than ever before. In fact, statistics vary, but we’re getting about 79 grams a day (22 or so teaspoons) which comes to 300- 350 calories from just simple carbohydrates with no nutritional value other than calories. Half of all the added sugars in the US diet come from liquid sources like sodas and other sweetened beverages. For reference, a 12-oz can of cola has 33 grams of added sweeteners or about 8 teaspoons. (4 grams of carbohydrate=1 tsp=16 calories) For more sugar counts, check out these sugar shockers. If you’re interested in trying a stevia-based sweetener that also adds flavor, you might want to check out Sweet Drops. The nice folks at SweetLeaf sent me a sampler of their flavors to try—it was fun to experiment with custom flavor combos for my coffee, which I like just a tad sweet.
SweetLeaf Liquid Stevia Sweet Drops are made by taking leaves of the stevia plant and extracting their naturally sweet taste with purified water, and then combining the extract with a variety of natural flavors. The drops have zero calories, zero carbohydrates and register zero on the glycemic-index. There are no chemicals, additives, or alcohols. Plus, the multi-pack bottles are little enough to tuck into your purse or backpack so you can sweeten and flavor things on-the-go.
Sweet Drops are versatile and easy to use. You can add them to coffee, tea, yogurt, milk, water, oatmeal or other hot cereal, smoothies. It just takes a few drops—they’re pretty potent. The flavors are tasty, and with 17 of them to choose from in the complete line, you’ll have plenty of options. SweetLeaf stevia has won global awards for taste, especially for their Chocolate Sweet Drops (lucky us)! Check out their website if you want more ideas for how to use Sweet Drops. I loved the Coffee & Tea multi-pack, which featured chocolate, vanilla creme and hazelnut flavors.
