More than 20 years ago, Thom King, a self-professed foodie and “health nut,” was introduced to a green herbal paste from Paraguay. The paste, while bitter, was also very sweet, and Thom was inspired to figure out how to safely and cleanly extract the sweet part of the stevia leaf and use it as a natural sweetener. Steviva’s roots were set in Topanga, California in 1999 when we started importing stevia extract and stevia leaves from abroad. This was long before the FDA allowed stevia to be used as a sweetener. Times were lean then, but the story of stevia needed to be told.
From its humble beginnings in Thom’s small garage in Los Angeles, Steviva Brands has grown into a company comprised of passionate health advocates and food scientists with one goal: to bring an end to metabolic disease and help everyone live healthier lives.

Metabolic disease encompasses several conditions, such as increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol or triglyceride levels. These can occur simultaneously, increasing your risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes. The increasing prevalence of diabetes is considered a health epidemic as more than 29 million people in the US have diabetes, and another 86 million have pre-diabetes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
