Twice as sweet as sugar, you can now enjoy the mouthfeel and taste of sugar, while also enjoying a serious reduction in carbs and calories.
A Steviva favorite for more than 10 years, Fructevia is our one-of-a-kind scrumptious blend of crystalline fructose, inulin, stevia and magnesium carbonate (to prevent caking). We’ve blended these in precise amounts to create a mouthfeel and taste experience that makes going low cal/low carb delicious!
You can use it right away, as an easy substitute for sugar in coffee or tea. Because Fructevia is twice as sweet as sugar, you’ll only need half as much as regular sugar.
Fructevia dissolves instantly in any hot or cold beverage — just pour and stir!
When baking, replaces table sugar 2 for 1 (2 cups of table sugar = 1 cup of Fructevia). Because Fructevia contains crystalline fructose, it retains the browning and carmelizing features cooks look for in baking, making it an excellent replacement for sugar in recipes.
What Is It Made Of?
We use only Non-GMO crystalline fructose.
Naturally occurring in nature in foods such as bananas, garlic, and artichokes, inulin is a natural plant fiber. It is a versatile ally as a sweetener, adding a fullness of texture to more closely match the feel of sugar. Inulin adds important properties when combined with crystalline fructose that contribute to the browning cooks look for in baked goods.
Used for hundreds of years in cultures around the world, stevia is derived from the Stevia Rebaudiana plant.
Magnesium carbonate is derived from ancient sea deposits. While we use magnesium carbonate as an anti-caking agent so Fructevia does not clump or stick together and flows freely, it is very important for the normal functioning of cell, nerves, muscles, bones, and the heart.
How Is It Made?
Crystalline fructose is created using the same manufacturing processes as sugar cane or sugar beets. After undergoing a purification, filtration and crystallization process, the result is crystallized fructose. Wherein, continuing to refine that same material, will later yield the undesirable high fructose corn syrup, which has a significantly higher glycemic index than crystalline fructose.
Our stevia is made with a clean, water-extraction process, and refined into an ultra-fine white powder. No bleaching or petrochemicals are involved in the manufacture of our stevia.
Likewise, a natural water extraction process is used to manufacture the inulin used in Fructevia. No bleaching or petrochemicals ever!
Health and Dietary Information
Crystalline fructose, the dominant ingredient in Fructevia, should not be confused with high fructose corn syrup, which can contain less than 10% fructose. Our crystalline fructose has one of the lowest glycemic indexes of any food, with a rating of only 20, compared to 31 for skim milk, and 59 for sucrose (ordinary table sugar).
This means that 1 ounce of fructose raises your blood sugar only about 1/3 as much as an ounce of sucrose, and it releases only about 1/3 as much insulin. And since Fructevia is three times as sweet as table sugar you use only a third as much bringing insulin impact down to practically nil.
