How can a green leaf be turned into a white cube?
Stevia is a green plant native to Paraguay & has been used as a sweetener in South America & Asia for hundreds of years. The leaves when steeped in boiling water give a green extremely sweet liquid which has absolutely no calories. The leaves can be bought fresh, dried or in powdered form.
Something natural like a plant can’t be patented so the “Pharma Cartel” came up with a way of extracting part of the plant & fooling us all by marketing that we are buying the same thing. There is big money to be made from the Diet Industry & something calorie free was bound to be attractive.
