I am going to be honest: I’m always looking for a calorie-free yet natural sugar substitute. I’ve tried them all, and I tend to go with the trend (perhaps slightly ahead of major widespread adaptation) and I keep upgrading my sweetener on that quest for the perfect substitute that staves off the sugar calories. And yet, I always have my questions about the origins of the substitutes, since most are made in laboratories. For the past year, I’ve been using stevia because of its natural origins — stevia is derived from the leafs of a tropical genus of plants in the same family as sunflowers. It’s gaining popularity since its US introduction just a few years ago, but it’s been widely used in other countries for many years. For diabetics and the gluten-conscious, sugar substitutes are a must. Having a natural option that tastes great is fantastic. Enter Pyure. Pyure sent me a care package of their Pyure Bakeable Stevia Blend, Pyure Original and Pyure Organic stevia sweetener packets.
If you’re open to alternative sweetners, Pyure is worth checking out. I found the packet product finer than my other usual stevia choice, which meant that it dissolved more completely, I think. The baking mixture is similar to others I have tried. Remember as you enjoy that stevia tends to be sweeter tasting than sugar, so sweeten to taste and experiment a bit to find the right quantity. Bon appetite!
Pyure also makes a stevia syrup, Pyure Nectur, that looks interesting and is worth checking out!
You can purchase these items from Pyure’s site itself, and they range from $2 to $10.
