Three Ingredients. Infinite Possibilities.

stevia drip
Truvia® Natural Sweetener is made with simply three ingredients: stevia leaf extract, erythritol and natural flavors. To make Truvia® Natural Sweetener, we first take the sweetest part of the stevia leaf and extract its natural sweetness. But stevia leaf extract is 200 times sweeter than sugar, so to balance the sweetness we add a natural sugar alcohol called erythritol. Then we add a special recipe of natural flavors to create great-tasting, zero calorie sweetness.

More About Truvia® Sweetener Products - Frequently Asked Questions


What is stevia leaf extract? [Link]

Stevia leaf extract is born from the sweet leaves of the stevia plant. To extract the plant’s intense natural sweetness, stevia leaves are harvested and dried. The leaves are then steeped in hot water. The resulting liquid extract is filtered, purified, and dried, resulting in the crystallized stevia leaf extract. Over 200 times sweeter than sugar, stevia leaf extract is the primary sweetening ingredient in Truvia® Natural Sweetener, and only a tiny amount is needed to deliver its clean sweet taste.


What is erythritol and why does Truvia® Natural Sweetener contain erythritol? [Link]

Erythritol is the largest ingredient in Truvia® Natural Sweetener by weight, and is used as an ingredient to provide bulk and the sugar-like crystalline appearance and texture for Truvia® Natural Sweetener. The erythritol used in Truvia® Natural Sweetener is produced through a natural fermentation process. Fermentation is the process by which an organism metabolizes or “digests” one or more food sources to produce a desired product. Fermentation occurs naturally in a variety of different foods given the right conditions and is used to produce wine, beer and yogurt. In the case of erythritol, a natural yeast, Moniliella pollinis, digests a simple sugar called dextrose and other nutrients and produces erythritol. After fermentation, the erythritol is filtered and dried into crystals. Erythritol is found naturally in a variety of fruits, such as grapes and pears, as well as in mushrooms, and certain fermented foods such as soy sauce and wine.
