Nature Sweet is a 0 calorie sweetener made with extracts of stevia and monk fruit.

The ingredients in Nature Sweet are Erythritol, Fructose, Chicory Root Fiber, Stevia Leaf Extract and Monk Fruit Extract.

The serving size of Nature Sweet is 1 packet (2 grams).

Nature Sweet is currently available in 3 SKUs: 40 count, 80 count and 400 count (Club Stores).

Each serving/packet of Nature Sweet is 0 calories.

There are 2 grams of carbohydrate in each serving/packet of Nature Sweet.

Each packet of Nature Sweet is equivalent in sweetness to 2 teaspoons of sugar.

These ingredients are used as bulking agents in Nature Sweet and contain very little in the way of carbohydrate and calories at the usage levels in Nature Sweet.

Per FDA regulations, the product is labeled as zero calories as it has less than 5 calories per packet. The Nature Sweet Nutrition Facts panel is in compliance with all regulations.

Erythritol is a sugar alcohol (polyol) used as a bulk sweetener in reduced calorie foods. The processed erythritol used in Nature Sweet is similar to the erythritol that occurs naturally in fruits such as pears, melons and grapes, as well as foods such as mushrooms and fermentation-derived foods such as wine, soy sauce and cheese. Its caloric value of zero calories per gram and high digestive tolerance distinguishes it from some other polyols (sugar alcohols).

Erythritol’s high digestive tolerance distinguishes it from other polyols.

The FDA has given erythritol GRAS status (Generally Recognized as Safe).

Fructose is known as a simple sugar because it is a single sweetening molecule. Fructose is one of the main types of sugars found in fruits such as apples, in fruit juices and in honey. The processed fructose used in Nature Sweet is similar to the fructose found in fruit.

Fructose is not the same as high fructose corn syrup. HFCS is composed of fructose, glucose and other sugars.

Chicory root fiber, also known as inulin, is a soluble dietary fiber. It typically is not digested by enzymes in the human alimentary system, contributing to its functional properties, reduced calorie value and dietary fiber.

Chicory root fiber has a naturally sweet taste (about 10% of the sweetness of sugar/sucrose). It imparts some substance (used as a bulking agent), sweetness and has a pleasant taste profile.

Chicory root fiber received FDA GRAS status in 2003.

Stevia leaf extract, a high purity extract from the stevia plant, is a great-tasting, zero calorie sweetener that is 200 times sweeter than sugar.

Yes. Scientific research and a long history of safe use show that stevia leaf extract can be safely consumed. Beginning in 2008 in the U.S., stevia leaf extracts have been given Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) status. The FDA has reviewed the published research, listened to expert opinions and, based on the evidence, has no objections to ingredient maker determinations that stevia leaf extract is safe for use in foods and beverages.

Monk fruit, also known as lo han guo, is a small, round fruit grown in Southeast Asia.
Monk fruit extract is created by removing the seeds and skin of the fruit, crushing the fruit, collecting the juice and further processing the juice to obtain a solid extract. The fruit extract, or juice, is about 150–200 times sweeter than sugar and contains zero calories per serving.

Yes. Scientific research and a long history of safe use show that monk fruit sweeteners can be safely consumed. In 2009 in the U.S., monk fruit sweeteners were given Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) status. The FDA has reviewed the published research, listened to expert opinions and, based on the evidence, has no objections to ingredient maker determinations that monk fruit sweeteners are safe for use in foods and beverages.

There are 30 calories in a serving of Whole Earth Sweetener Agave 50.

Each bottle of Whole Earth Sweetener Agave 50 contains 30 servings.

The serving size of Whole Earth Sweetener Agave 50 is ½ tablespoon. It provides the equivalent sweetness to a 1tablespoon serving of traditional agave nectar.

Stevia leaf extract, a high purity extract of the sweetest part of the stevia plant, is a great-tasting, zero calorie sweetener that is 200 times sweeter than sugar.

Whole Earth Sweetener Agave 50 is most easily substituted for liquid sugars since it’s already in liquid form and the difference in moisture will usually be negligible. Because of its lower glycemic index, Whole Earth Sweetener Agave 50 makes an excellent substitute for many natural and refined liquid sugars, including: honey, maple syrup, brown rice syrup and corn syrup.

Whole Earth Sweetener Agave 50, which includes agave nectar and stevia extract, has a medium amber color. The lighter syrups undergo less heating and a more thorough filtration to produce a more mildly flavored product that is neutral enough to be used in many culinary applications. The darker syrups are filtered less, and the solids left in the syrup make for a stronger nectar with a flavor sometimes compared to maple syrup. As agave syrup is produced from natural products having color variance, colors will differ in appearance from time to time.

The core (pina) of the agave plant is harvested and sap is extracted, filtered, and heated at a low temperature, which breaks down the carbohydrates into sugars. Lighter and darker varieties of agave nectar are made from the same plants, but final color varies due to filtration and the agave’s natural color.

The agave plant is a large, spiky plant that resembles cactus or yuccas in both form and habitat. There are more than 100 species, but due to Blue Agave’s high carbohydrate content (which results in a high percentage of fructose in the final nectar), Blue Agave is the preferred species for producing nectar for consumption.

The ingredients in Whole Earth Sweetener Agave 50 are organic Agave nectar, water and organic stevia leaf extract.

Whole Earth Sweetener Agave 50 is a great-tasting liquid sweetener with a low glycemic index made from the blue agave plant.

A serving of Whole Earth Sweetener Agave 50 contains 8 grams of carbohydrate.

Each serving of Whole Earth Sweetener Agave 50 is equivalent to 1 tablespoon of traditional agave nectar and half the calories.

Yes, agave has calories. However, agave has a lower glycemic index than sugar.

The glycemic index is a way of measuring the relative impact of foods on blood sugar levels. Foods with a high glycemic index have carbohydrates that the body can convert quickly to sugar, which makes them more likely to cause a quick rise in blood sugar.

The glycemic index of agave generally scores under 30 as compared to granulated sugar, which has an average glycemic index in the high 60s.

The glycemic index of Whole Earth Sweetener Agave 50 would be the same as agave syrup. While the stevia extract in Agave 50 has a glycemic index of 0, the agave syrup scores would be under 30 as compared to granulated sugar, which has an average glycemic index in the high 60s.

Yes. Scientific research and a long history of safe use show that stevia leaf extract can be safely consumed. In 2008 in the U.S., stevia leaf extract was given Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) status. The FDA has reviewed the published research, listened to expert opinions and, based on the evidence, has no objections to ingredient maker determinations that stevia leaf extract is safe for use in foods and beverages.

Yes, all the ingredients in Whole Earth Sweetener Agave 50 are organic.

“Organic is a labeling term that indicates that the food or other agricultural product has been produced through approved methods that integrate cultural, biological, and mechanical practices that foster cycling of resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve biodiversity.
