The stevia leaf extract is extracted from dried and crushed stevia leaves. To extract the stevia plant’s intense natural sweetness, after the leaves have been dried and milled, they are steeped in fresh water and the resulting liquid extract is filtered, purified, and dried. It is then purified further to obtain the steviol glycosides used in our products. The extraction process does not chemically change the rebaudiosides from what is found in the unprocessed leaves.
