Stevia Extract Fluid
Origin of Stevia
Stevia, also known as honeydew, is a natural sweetener derived from the leaves of the South American Stevia rebaudiana plant. The substances that make the plant sweet are the concentrated steviol glycosides
Advantages of Stevia liquid
The stevia sweetener liquid is up to 150 times sweeter than sugar. Stevia liquid contains no calories and has a Glycemic value of 0. This ensures that liquid stevia has no harmful impact on the blood level, making the liquid sweetener suitable for people with diabetes
Use of liquid stevia
Stevia extract liquid is ideal for sweetening drinks and dishes. Two to three drops of liquid stevia extract are equivalent to a teaspoon of sugar. However, it is not completely comparable to sugar, because besides being sweet, liquid stevia also has a slightly bitter taste. Liquid stevia is good to use in drinks and yoghurts or to bake with.

Steviahouse means responsible sweetening
The Steviahouse brand was born out of an interest in natural products that contribute to a healthier life. Searching for a healthy alternative to sugar due to some health issues, 2012 years ago, Michel Groothuis came across the Stevia plant. He benefited so much from using stevia that he decided to share it with those around him. He started the web shop Steviahouse and sold various products made from stevia, such as Stevia Extract Fluid.
Because of the success of Steviahouse, Michel was ever more often asked if could also supply other 'healthy' products. So the range expanded until 7 years later there was an online shop whose name 'Steviahouse' was no longer representative of the range. The web shop was renamed Naturaplaza and the stevia products came under the banner of the new brand with the 'familiar' name Steviahouse. The brand's motto is still: Naturally Healthy!
The products containing stevia from Steviahouse are made from 100% natural ingredients. Stevia Extract Fluid is no exception. The special thing about stevia products as sweeteners is that they contain no calories. The use of stevia therefore has no effect on your blood sugar level. Anyone who likes sweets will benefit, but especially people with diabetes. For example, with Steviahouse products you can sweeten your coffee without worrying about your blood sugar levels.
Stevia Extract Fluid contains no chemical additives
The taste of stevia is different from normal sugar. Some manufacturers mask this difference in taste with 'unhealthy' additives like maltodextrin. Steviahouse chooses the path of quality and the importance of the health of the end user. Therefore, Stevia Extract Fluid does not contain any chemical or unhealthy additives. Steviahouse is constantly looking for new natural ways to improve the taste and quality of its products.

sweeteners as preservatives
Certain substances, including salt, sweeteners, vinegar and alcohol, act as preservatives. This applies to sweeteners as soon as they reach a content of more than 75 percent.
No favorable environment for bacteria and other microorganisms
That is why honey and sugar, for example, never spoil. The concentration of the sweetener is so high that the moisture in the food no longer provides a favorable environment for bacteria and other microorganisms that cause spoilage.
At least until best before date
Our liquid stevia consists of 95% of the sweetener stevioglycoside and thus in principle will not spoil.
Once opened, the Stevia fluid can therefore be used without any problems until the best before date.
Question from Natasja:
Is it true that all the stevia powders listed on the Vehgroshop site are not organic? Can't find anything about that.
That is indeed the case.
Due to regulations, stevia cannot be called organic, even if it comes from organically grown stevia plants. Stevia (steviaglycoside) is a sweetener used as an additive to make products sweeter. Stevia is recognised as E-number E960. Additives with E-numbers may not be used in organic food. Organic stevia can therefore not be found.
However, this does not alter the fact that we source our stevia from a strictly controlled and reliable source. The high quality of our stevia products is beyond dispute.
