Steviva Blend and a chance to win something nice



Update:  Some people may experience some intestinal discomfort or diarrhea.  Why that is, I have no idea.  Stevia on its own should not be a problem and erythritol on its own is not a problem.  Not sure why the blended version is a problem sometimes for some people.

Below is a letter I received just now.  I thought I would share it here.  Funny thing is in the last 24 hours I was thinking I really need to do a post on Steviva Blend.  I ran out of erythritol and used Steviva Blend in its stead in combination with Splenda Granular.  It works very well in baking and seems to contribute to nice, moist baked goods. They have another product called Fructevia but for low-carbers the Steviva Blend is best.  Steviva Blend is a blend of stevia and erythritol.

"Steviva Blend is a blend of the highest quality Rebaudioside A (stevia extract) an all natural grain extract, erythritol, a filler which is naturally occurring in a variety of foods and derived from non-GMO fermented grain.
Steviva Blend is granulated like sugar, dissolves quickly and has a 2:1 sweetness ratio to sugar, so it is very easy to measure. Steviva Blend is ideal to bake and cook with. Steviva Blend has less than 1 Calorie and less than 1 Carbohydrate per serving making it safe for diabetics and may be used in hot or cold liquids, sprinkled on cereals and fruit, or in any way that you wish to use this revolutionary dietary supplement.
What is Erythritol?
A substance which occurs naturally in many fruits and vegetables now manufactured by fermentation of glucose. With a caloric value close to zero (max 0.2Kcal/g) with an appearance and properties very similar to sucrose but offering 70% of the sweetness of sucrose, it is an ideal choice for many applications."

I really am pleased that companies are finally making these "user-friendly" blends available to the public. Years ago I had to come up with my own 'Shuga~Blend' because I was tremendously frustrated with low-carb baking results. What a boom for home bakers.

Jennifer said...

You are right, Donna. It is a blessing to have so many alternatives. I just wish that the prices were not so high in some cases, plus I wish for wider distribution.

RVcook said...

Agreed. The prices are high when compared to regular sugar, but for those that are looking for something that is not just chemical based, it does offer a choice. When new things come out, I'm immediately transported back to the "early days" of low carb when you had little or NO choices. Ughh...glad those days are behind us...lol ;-)

Jennifer said...

Definitely - low-carbing is easier today than ever before. :)

Janet said...

Thank Jennifer. I will try this product.
The sweepstakes and $10 off product offer is closed however :(
Stevia products are finally starting to really taste good. Early on they were very bitter.
I am trying to switch to more stevia and less of the other less natural products.
Your input is greatly appreciated!!

Jennifer said...

You're welcome, Janet. It's a nice product.

Kate@Diethood said...

Low carb cooking/baking is so much easier now... about time! :)

Jennifer said...

True

Ann said...

I love, love, LOVE the taste of Stevia, but I'm one of the few that it disagrees with...even in small amounts. Which is a bummer, because the taste is incredible!

Jennifer said...

Wow, you like straight Stevia, Ann? The Steviva Blend tastes great but unfortunately I'm very reactive to it. My husband is as well but my son was fine. Go figure!
