What is stevia?
The stevia plant is an herb, a relative of the daisy. Sweetness from the leaves of the stevia plant can be crystallized and turned into a powder or a liquid sweetener like Zing™ . Stevia leaf extract is actually 200 times sweeter than sugar, plus it contains zero calories.
What is dextrose and why is it used in Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener?
Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener is a blend of dextrose and stevia leaf extract. Dextrose is a carbohydrate found in fruits and grains. Given the high intensity sweetness of stevia leaf extract, very little is needed, but that makes measuring it a challenge.
Dextrose is added as a bulking agent to make the product easier to measure and use. Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener has less than 1 gram of carbohydrate per packet.
Why blend stevia leaf extract with pure cane sugar for Zing™ Baking Blend?
We created a perfect combination of stevia leaf extract with pure cane sugar in 5 Calorie Zing™ Baking Blend as a response to consumer demand for a sweetener that can be used in cooking and baking, yet with reduced calories and carbohydrate.
Since stevia extract is more intensely sweet than sugar, by using Zing™ Baking Blend in your recipes, you cut in half the amount of sugar called for in your recipe. For example, when a recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar, you will only use 1/2 cup of Zing™ Baking Blend.
Is Zing™ made in a facility that processes nuts, wheat, or other allergens?
Our stevia sweeteners do not contain any nuts, nor are they are packed with equipment that handles nuts or peanuts. Our products are also gluten-free. Please contact us and we’d be happy to share complete, up-to-date allergy information with you.
