A Natural Stevia ?
What it means ?
The word "organic", partly recovered by marketing agencies is not enough satisfactory to qualify that we sell.
That's why we prefer to call it Natural Stevia as one speaks of natural wine. A natural wine is a wine that, in addition to the grapes grown organically does not use chemicals in its winemaking.
It is the same for Stevia, although the leaves can be grown without chemical fertilizers, most producers use of ethanol (Paraguay) or methanol (China) to extract the sweetened components of the plant . It still "Organic" but no more so natural (ethanol or methanol leave traces in the stevia crystallized, even tiny).
All the stevia products we sell on this site use natural stevia, stevia that is a crystallized with purified water and bleached by a process of ceramic and carbon filter (see the article on the manufacture of our products). The only difference between our brand Sucrevia and other products is that our brand is refiltered to increase the rate of rebaudioside A and a full tracking of the manufacturing process.

The production cost is more important but provides a stevia crystallized without chemicals trace.
