It's interesting to know that Stevia is a plant. It seems that in some Latin American countries, it has been around for centuries 😮! In some cultures, stevia leaves are used in herbal infusions to sweeten the taste, in the cooking and in some medicinal recipes. Its properties are numerous and it also contains essential nutrients for the human body including vitamin A, vitamin C, zinc, protein, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, iron and calcium.
The stevia leaf extract found in our smoothies is certified organic and is present in tiny quantities. The presence is mainly derived from the vegan protein that we use in the recipes.
