Ultra Stevia Extract 98% from THE PROTEIN WORKS™ is an all natural sweetener that’s derived from the sweet leaf plant native to South America. It’s considered by experts to be the ideal substitute for sugar since it contains zero calories, zero carbohydrates and has a zero Glycemic Index. This also makes it the perfect sweetener for use in sports nutrition since it can be added to any unflavoured shake, thereby retaining the full content and potency of your shake's active ingredients.
Natural Stevia Extract can be used as a sweetener in many foods and drinks. It is widely considered one of the healthiest sugar substitutes available since it is created from the purest part of the plant, resulting in a clean, crisp taste. Stevia Extract is actually sweeter than pure sugar cane, but without the negative effects and blood sugar spikes. It possesses around 300 times the sweetness of pure cane sugar and provides more health and nutritional benefits since it is an all natural product, unlike refined sugar. Ultra Stevia Extract 98% from TPW™ is the purest form available on the market today and has been carefully selected by us for its exceptional grade.
Stevia Extract is especially good for those looking to lower their body fat since the zero Glycemic Index and zero calories means it has no effect on blood sugar levels. This in turn greatly helps to control cravings, satisfy a sweet tooth and ultimately ensure the environment within the body is conducive to both preventing fat storage and aiding fat loss.
Stevia Extract has also been shown to have other health benefits too. These include preventing tooth decay, reducing high blood pressure and assisting digestion. Lastly, one of the real great properties of Stevia Extract is that it is heat stable up to temperatures of about 200 degrees Celsius. It is therefore suitable for use in almost any recipe, unlike other sweeteners. This makes it the ideal flavoring agent for use in recipes such as protein pancakes, protein muffins or even protein ice cream.
So why does Stevia Extract cost so much? First of all, it is a plant that has to be cultivated before it can be used as a sweetener, requiring significant investment. Further investment is required to refine the Stevia leaves into the pure stevioside. Also, the much smaller scale of production compared to sugar for example, makes it a lot more expensive.
