Truvia® sweetener comes from nature: Stevia leaf extract is born from the sweet leaf of the stevia plant, native to South America. Dried stevia leaves are steeped in water, similar to making tea. This unlocks the best tasting part of the leaf which is then purified to provide a calorie-free sweet taste. Erythritol is a natural sweetener, produced by a natural process, and is also found in fruits like grapes and pears. Natural flavors complement the clean sweet taste of Truvia® natural sweetener.
