WHAT IS STEVIA?
Stevia is a natural extract from the leaves of Stevia Rebaudiana, a herb which is native to South America. Stevia leaves contain special compounds called steviol glycosides, which are naturally sweet.
DOES IT HAVE AN AFTER TASTE?
Modern Nature has developed a unique recipe that only uses the sweetest parts of the stevia plant. This means we can leave out most of the compounds that give other stevia-based sweeteners a licorice-like aftertaste. We also balance the flavours of natural stevia with a few natural ingredients, giving our stevia products an authentically sweet and pure taste.
IS IT SAFE FOR ME TO USE?
Stevia is approved as safe by the European Food Safety Authority and permitted for use as a sweetener in the UK by the Food Standards Agency. Stevia is a natural extract from the leaves of the stevia plant, which has been by the indigenous people of Paraguay for over 1500 years
WHERE DOES IT COME FROM?
Stevia's origins began in Paraguay, where it has been used by the indigenous people for over 1500 years. Modern Nature's stevia is responsibly sourced from Pure Circle. This guarantees the quality, purity and safety of every batch. For more information on Pure Circle visit: www.purecircle.com

WHY IS STEVIA BETTER THAN SUGAR?
The health problems caused by sugar are well known: obesity, diabetes and tooth decay are only three of the effects that sugar has on our bodies. Natural stevia, on the other hand, contains no calories at all, has no effect on your blood sugar levels and does not affect your dental health. It has been consumed by the indigenous people of Paraguay for over 1500 years.
