I’m not a cola drinker, but for those of you who still enjoy a canned cola, there are some better diet products coming on the market these days.
By now, I’m sure you know that stevia is one of the safest sweetener choices out there, but make sure you use pure stevia. Avoid the blends that include the sugar alcohols, like sorbitol, mannitol, or erythritol.
Stevia is extracted from a plant grown in South America, and in its original form, stevia is a complex sugar from the plant itself.
It’s simply a sweet plant leaf. This is what I consider a natural sucrose (sugar) substitute.
Stevia is a complex plant carbohydrate, so it does not pass into your bloodstream, yet it releases a natural sweetness.
Some people complain that stevia is bitter, but that is an easy problem to fix. Simply don’t use too much. It’s no different than seasoning a tomato with too much salt or pepper, or using too much garlic or oregano in lasagna.
Start off slowly, and add more if you wish.
Many of us are in the habit of spooning huge amounts of sugar or pouring multiple packets of artificial sweeteners into coffee or iced tea, but don’t pour the equivalent of stevia as if it was the same as refined sugar or one of the artificial sweetener substitutes, like Equal® or Splenda®.
Begin using one-quarter the amount of stevia for one serving of sugar, then the taste should be pleasant, natural, and never bitter.
“Green Cola” is a new brand of carbonated soft drink that is zero sugar and zero calorie, but what makes it unique is having no phosphoric acid and no sugar.
Green Cola® is a different drink, no doubt. Established in Greece, Green Cola drinks are now becoming available worldwide.
Green Cola contains sweeteners from the stevia plant, natural caffeine from green coffee beans, and it has no aspartame, no phosphoric acid, no sugar nor any preservatives.
This is a true healthy cola alternative for anyone who can’t stop the pop.
