Stevia’s natural sweetness has spurred its cultivation around the world.

Growing stevia requires a lot of work, not to mention some help from the earth, sun and rain.

The stevia plant is harvested three to four times a year. Then the leaves are dried in the sun or in hot air dryers. Finally, Reb A, the sweetest part of the leaf, is extracted to make Pure Via.

The journey of all natural, zero calorie stevia from farm to your table is truly a guiltless trip.
