1 . Does Wholesome! Organic Stevia help you lose weight?

When used as part of a balanced diet and exercise regimen Wholesome! Organic Stevia may help you lose weight because it contains no calories.

2 . Are there recipes that call for Wholesome! Organic Stevia on your website?

Yes. We have some delicious recipes that use Organic Stevia. Organic Stevia recipes can be found on our website.

3 . Does Wholesome! Zero pass through your body without being absorbed?

Wholesome! Zero is made up of very small molecules … it is not metabolized, but is absorbed by the kidneys and nearly 96% of it passes through unchanged, the remaining 4% passes through the lower intestine also unchanged. So really, it sweetens gently then goes completely away.

4 . Does Wholesome! Zero cause gassiness, bloating, or digestive disorders?

Any sugar alcohol can have the potential of causing these symptoms if consumed in excess.  Of the sugar alcohols on the market, erythritol is one of the least likely to cause these types of problems, but like all sweeteners, we do recommend that it be used in moderation.

It takes about 2 pounds of sugar to produce 1 pound of Wholesome! Zero.

Store Wholesome! Organic Stevia it in a cool, dry and dark environment preferably in a tightly sealed container. If stored properly our Wholesome! has a 3-year shelf life. Although, it tastes so good we doubt it will last that long!

10 . Is Wholesome! Organic Stevia Kosher?

Yes. Wholesome! Organic Stevia is Kosher Certified by the Orthodox Union. It is also USDA Organically Certified, Non-GMO Project Verified, Gluten-free and Vegan.
