GMO FREE?! YES PLEASE
There is so much controversy with sweeteners these days, and stevia is one that pops up quite often. I personally am not a sugar fan, I used spenda as part of my weight watchers diet way back when and have since converted to stevia... I love it in my coffee and my tea with honey!
It is so versatile that it an easy swap when baking, I do find it sweeter though and cut back typically. Because I follow the whole GMO fight and try really hard to eat organic- I AM NOT PERFECT by any stretch... I have been really on the fence with any sugar and sweetener, however this is the one I would use if I am to use it after all it is organic and tastes great! Moderation is key.
I did recently watch the documentary FED UP- watch it if you haven't see it ... highly recommend that. But is really sheds a light on the sugar industry.. and our government. But I digress!
Kiva Organic Stevia is a multi-purpose tabletop sweetener made from Non-GMO stevia plants grown in the USA and is a perfect substitute for sugar and artificial sweeteners. It also has zero-calories, no bitter aftertaste, and a low glycemic index, making it ideal for those managing calories and blood sugar. I have found this by far superior to any other and highly reccomend this company.
Here is some of their info First look them up www.kivahealthfood.com
We blend our high purity stevia extract with erythritol (e-ryth-ri-tol), a naturally-occurring sugar alcohol found in fruits and vegetables to create a delicious blend that's easy to serve. Enjoy!
