About Stevia Extract

The form of this sweetener that we use most often is the white powdered extract. This is the sweetest form, which is approximately 200 to 300 times sweeter than sugar, by weight. By comparison, this means that the 1/8 teaspoon of stevia extract in the photo is sweeter than 1/2 cup of cane sugar.

Because it is so sweet, it should be used by the pinch. Start with a very small amount, less than you intended to use, and add more only if necessary, after tasting. Other forms of Stevia are liquid concentrates, and fresh Stevia leaves, dried leaves, and ground powdered leaves, which are greenish in color and have a distinctive flavor, somewhat similar to licorice. We don’t like the green stevia because it leaves an aftertaste, which can alter the flavor of the recipe. Stevia Extract is available from health food stores, on-line, and from food co-ops and online sources.

Some background information:

Over the years, people have been asking us, “What do vegans eat?” This is probably because they first think about a flesh product first and everything else as a side dish. So, we began publishing the huge variety of plant foods that are available for us to eat in this section of our web site. Additionally, we are always on the lookout for something new to add to our collection and experiment with to incorporate into our meals. We have also found that eating mostly unprocessed plant foods make us much more healthy.
