Stevia. The leaf with a sweet side.

Truvia Ingredients

Truvia is a sugar substitute made from three main ingredients: stevia leaf extract, erythritol and natural flavours. To make Truvia Original Sweetener, we first take the sweetest part of the stevia leaf and extract its natural flavour. But stevia leaf extract is 200 times sweeter than sugar, so to balance the sweetness we add erythritol. Then we add a special recipe of natural flavours to create great-tasting sweetness.


Stevia Leaf Extract

Truvia® stevia leaf extract is a high purity and consistent sweetener derived from best tasting parts of the stevia leaf.


Erythritol is produced by a fermentation process, and provides bulk and the sugar-like texture people love. Erythritol is also found in fruits like grapes and pears. To learn more about erythritol, visit our FAQ page ›
