Havva Brew recommends that you use our Stevia leaves if adding a certain sweetness to our teas or any other beverage in general as it is used as a sugar substitute in various parts of the world.
Stevia is a plant-based, non-caloric sweetener which is 200 times sweeter than the same amount of granulated table sugar. It can be used as a sugar substitute to prevent having elevated blood sugar levels. We suggest using Stevia leaves as a sugar substitute as it is all natural, with no chemicals added to the leaves.
Furthermore, several researches suggest that it does not raise blood sugar levels, making it healthier when consumed in moderation, and safe to consume for diabetic and hypertensive people. According to the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), steviol glycosides, a compound found in Stevia leaves are generally recognized as safe to consume, as long as it is in moderation. Massachusetts General Hospital also claim that Stevia is promising for people suffering from hypertension and type 2 diabetes.
Please do note that Stevia leaves is not a cure to diabetes and hypertension and can be harmful in large amounts. It can only suppress plasma glucose levels, stabilize your blood sugar, increase insulin production, and possess antioxidant properties that can help you live a longer, and healthier life.
A friendly reminder from Havva Brew, sweeten moderately through natural products. Sweeten your day with our Stevia leaves, available only at Havva Brew.
Instead of sugar or other artificial sweeteners, use about a pinch of stevia for your cup of beverage (adjust the amount according to your personal preference). It would be best to put the stevia leaves in an infuser and steep into your beverage for NO MORE than 5 minutes. You can also simply put the stevia leaves into your beverage and scoop it out or filter it out within 5 minutes. Leaving the stevia leaves in your beverage for more than 5 minutes will give a bitter aftertaste.
