Healthy Living: Truvía Sweetener


Cranberry-Orange Muffins Made with Truvía SweetenerYou know the expression “sweet as sugar?” Well, this is but without the calories!

Truvía® Natural Sweetener continues to serve as a great-tasting, zero-calorie sugar substitute for people looking to reduce calories and/or sugar in their diets. That’s me! That’s me!

Truvía® is made from the stevia plant, which grows naturally. The extract comes from the leaves of the stevia plant, which was discovered hundreds of years ago in Paraguay and has been used worldwide for decades. Truvía® stevia leaf extract is a high-purity and consistent sweetener containing the best-tasting parts of the stevia leaf.

Truvía® sweeteners were created to help people maintain a balanced lifestyle while retaining the same sweetness they love in their beverages and recipes. Thank goodness for products like this, where you can still enjoy a treat without breaking the calorie bank.
