Today’s In The Kitchen is going to be about:
I’ve been looking for a alternative to putting sugar on my cereal every morning. The biggest reason is to save on calories. I’ve heard so many bad things about artificial sweeteners so I’ve never really given any a chance. I don’t like the taste of artificial sweeteners. While the truvia didn’t have a “sugar” taste, meaning I tasted a difference in my special-k, but it wasn’t horrible. I could totally use this sugar alternative and be ok with it. Truvia isn’t an artificial sweetener, it’s a natural sweetener. The FDA has not yet approved of Truvia yet, but I give it my two thumbs up. Will I use it for everything, like when I bake, no I won’t, but I’m glad to find something to put on my cereal.
From the Truvia website:
Stevia: the plant with a sweet secret
Sweetness born from a leaf, not in a lab. Meet the stevia plant. The proud parent of our new natural sweetener. People have been sweetening foods and beverages with stevia leaves for hundreds of years. The taste comes from a natural ingredient from the leaves called rebiana.
Rebiana is what gives Truvia™ natural sweetener its clean, honest sweet taste. Simple.
