Fructevia and Steviva Blend were designed for cooking and baking and so is our line of attractive, super strong and dependable organic bamboo utensils. The best part is for a limited time they are free with your purchase of our new five pound bags.
Our organic bamboo utensils are 14" long and have a convenient "eye" in case you want to hang them from a rack or hook.
The Steviva Brands line of bamboo utensils are made of organically grown Moso bamboo that is distinctively attractive and super strong.
Bamboo is 16 percent harder than maple, it’s naturally anti-microbial; it holds the promise of a sustainable, cost effective, and responsible alternative to the widespread clear cutting of our old growth forests. This naturally harvested bamboo is not a food source, or a habitat, for the Giant Panda.
Note: Do not wash in dishwasher, instead wash with warm, soapy water and use a little vegetable oil, occasionally, to extend the life and keep bamboo looking beautiful.
Fructevia is a patented all natural proprietary blend of GMO Free, non-corn based Crystalline Fructose, FOS, Rebaudioside A (stevia extract) and Magnesium Carbonate.
Fructevia is about three times as sweet as sugar so you use less than half as much. Fructevia has less than 3 calories per serving and does not affect blood sugar levels like sugar so it is safe for diabetics, low carb dieters, low glycemic dieters, persons suffering from hypoglycemia and more.
Fructevia tastes exactly like sugar. In fact, we guarantee it. If you find that it doesn't, send it back and we will refund your money in full. No questions asked.
Fructevia contains no GMO's, gluten or chemicals. It is completely a product of nature
About our Crystalline Fructose
We source our GMO free, corn free crystalline fructose from Galam, Inc. It is the only plant in the world that produces such a clean non GMO fructose. We are proud of this. Crystalline fructose should not to 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, 59 for sucrose (ordinary table sugar), and 98 for an equal weight of mashed potatoes.
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.
FOS is considered prebiotic as it supports the healthy well-being of intestinal probiotics, the friendly flora in your intestinal tract. FOS occurs naturally in bananas, garlic, artichokes and certain other foods, and technically is a soluble fiber. FOS is an effective sweetener, being half as sweet as sucrose, yet not absorbed and has minimal caloric value. We use a small amount of FOS in Fructevia as a filler and as a healthy supplement to our products.
Stevia is derived from the herbal plant Stevia Rebaudiana. When refined into a white powder extract (Rebaudioside A), it becomes 200-300 times sweeter than sugar creating an intense sweet effect upon the taste buds without raising blood sugar levels and contains no calories. Research indicates that both diabetics and persons suffering from hypoglycemia may safely use Stevia.
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.
