Coffee had a dreadful reputation for decades. The Filipino habit of putting a lot of sugar and cream in one’s cup has been linked to high blood pressure, insomnia, and hyperacidity, as well as aggravated diabetes.
Although no one can refuse a Pinoy coffee drinker his morning cup, the level of sugar in commercial 3-in-1 coffee mixes is a cause for concern. One 20-gram sachet of the leading brand contains 14.6 grams of sugar. Consider how much sugar you’re consuming if you drink three cups of coffee a day on average.
What About Sugar-Free Coffee?
For health-conscious individuals, especially diabetics, turning to sugar-free coffee mixes seems to be the only option. This meant enduring tasteless cups of coffee just to satisfy their caffeine fix —until Stevia came along.
Stevia is the low calorie, zero sugar sweetener that tastes so much better than artificial sweeteners.
Stevia is an herb with a sweet-tasting extract that comes from the leaves of the Stevia rebaudiana plant. It has been enjoyed since pre-Columbian South America where indigenous people used the herb to sweeten their tea and other drinks.
The plant’s taste stems from steviol glycosides, molecules which are 250–300 times sweeter than regular sugar.
It became popular among health-conscious individuals because stevia has a very low caloric content. This makes it perfect for dieters and people who are trying to lose weight.
Moreover, Stevia makes coffee and tea taste so much better without adding any calories.
Aside from beverages, Stevia is also used as an alternative sweetener when cooking or baking.
The Health Advantages of Stevia
Stevia is a safe, healthy sugar substitute that can sweeten up food without the negative health effects of refined sugar. It’s also associated with several impressive benefits such as reduced calorie intake, managed blood sugar levels, and minimized risk of cavities.
Additionally, while other sugar substitutes like Aspartame have been linked with cancer, there’s no evidence linking stevia to cancer since it is a natural ingredient.
This means you can add stevia to dishes and drinks without fear that you’re taking too much sugar, or that you’ll get sick a few years down the road.
