Sweet Success – National Diabetes Month

Ellie Wilson, MS, RDN, CDN   Senior Nutritionist


When I was seeing patients with diabetes, one of their biggest frustrations was finding a low calorie sweetener that would taste good, be convenient and meaningfully help them manage sugar intake. The products available then had no calories, but they also did not have a good taste, and were hard to use regularly.

Time has passed, and sweeteners have come a long way. Splenda® Naturals Stevia Sweetener has found the best way to bring flavor out and calories down. The sweet stevia leaf, long used in South America, is processed by drying the leaves and soaking them in water to tease out and capture their sweet elements – natural steviol glycoside compounds such as: Reb A and Reb D. The different steviol glycosides have different taste profiles.  Reb D content in Splenda® Naturals is important, as that has none of the bitter notes that some alternate stevia sweeteners have. Splenda® Naturals  is great in recipes and as the sweetener for coffee and tea. The packets make it easy to carry with you, especially as you make your way through the fun events and shopping the holiday season brings upon us.
