Coca-Cola Life and STEVIA.

Coca Cola Life sweetened with cane sugar and stevia.
I just found recently a farm that cultivates stevia, a wonder plant with leaves that are sweeter than cane sugar. Stevia is now fast becoming popular and getting widely used as healthy alternative for sugar.

Coca Cola Life with stevia. Reduced calorie soda. 90 calories only per can.

Stevia is not sugar. They called it "sweetener," and can be used to sweeten almost anything, from pastries, coffee, tea, soda, other beverages, chocolates, and more.

Unlike cane sugar, it does not caramelize when heated and will not attract ants unless it is combined with sugar.

STEVIA seedlings. - I was allowed only to buy one pot.

I sampled chewing a fresh leaf and the sweetness came first as subtle followed with a tinge of slight bitterness then later on the sweetness started to magnified behind my palate and throat and it lasted there, for more than an hour. It diminished gradually.

I found a farm near Metro Manila that cultivates stevia, a wonder plant with leaves that are sweeter than cane sugar. A healthy alternative for sugar. It is not sugar. They called it "sweetener," and can be used to sweeten almost anything. Good for those who have health problems with cane sugar.
