While our products are sold in over 9,000 stores in the United States, we realize that there is only so much shelf space available and not all our products get on the shelf.

If this is not possible, we are here to serve you 24 hours a day!”
Powdered Stevia (Packets & Bottle Form)
“White Stevia™ Extract Powder contains the flowing agent maltodextrin, a food grade carbohydrate derived from grain. Tasteless, maltodextrin is the perfect medium to use with the extract, making it easier to measure. This form is perfect for sprinkling on cereal, yogurt as well as mixing in beverages. One quarter to three quarters of a teaspoon is the recommended serving.
White Stevia Powder contains 60% more Stevia extract than most other brands on the market. The cost to get the same sweet taste of other brands can be up to 2 1/2 times more expensive compared to NuNaturals. NuNaturals White Stevia Powder will save you money.”
Liquid Stevia (Various Flavors)
“NuNaturals has developed this easy to use liquid that allows the most accurate measurement of Stevia Extract. This liquid is so concentrated, that only 5-10 drops are needed.
Our Pure Liquid Clear NuStevia Extract contains 200 mg per ml and is in a base of vegetable glycerine and 20% pure grain alcohol. Clear Stevia comes in a 2 oz bottle. Great for teas and other beverages.”
“NuStevia Reb99™ is a pure extract of the Stevia plant. 99.8% of Rebaudioside-A(Reb-A) is extracted. Reb99™ is a very high grade Stevia extract. NuStevia Reb99 has a very clean taste profile with no unpleasant aftertaste as other Reb-A extracts can have. This is a powder extract. This form is excellent for mixing up large batches of beverages or for recipes. It is our most economical form of Stevia to use.
This product is packaged in a 1 oz plastic bag. There are 810 servings. A serving size is 1/64 of a teaspoon which tastes as sweet as 1 teaspoon of sugar. 3/4 teaspoon equals 1 cups of sugar in terms of sweetness.
NuNaturals Pure NuStevia Extract contains absolutely no calories or carbohydrates. NuStevia Reb99 should have no effect on blood sugar levels for most individuals.”
“PreSweet Tagatose is safe for diabetics because it will not raise blood sugar levels. It is also being studied for other health benefits.
One of the health benefits of PreSweet is that it is a prebiotic ingredient. Prebiotics feed probotic bacteria like acidopholis found in yogurt. Prebiotics help the good bacteria in the digestive system multiply. This improves the overall health of the digestive system and may improve the general health of the body.
PreSweet Tagatose is a naturally-occurring sweetener found in milk, fruits and vegetables. It is 92% as sweet as sugar. PreSweet is a low calorie (6 calories/serving), low GI (3 on the glycemic index), and low in carbohydrates (especially considering that many of the carbohydrates are not digested).
PreSweet is anti-hyperglycemic and great for those on weight loss programs because it will satsify your sweet tooth without adding the calories that sugar will.
Unlike sugar alcohols like Xylitol and Erythritol, PreSweet Tagatose browns like sugar. Because it brown quicker and darker than sugar, you might consider blending it with other sweeteners in cakes and cookies or reduce baking time.
While Xylitol has a unique cooling taste and Erythritol has a distinctive taste, Tagatose as a very clean, neutral taste like sugar.”
“NuGrain™ Oat Fiber is naturally produced from food-grade oat hulls through a proprietary process. This is a chemical-free process, turning organic hulls into various organic fibers. Oat fiber has many uses in baked goods, adding to smoothies, porridge, and other recipes where you want to boost the fiber content of the foods your eat.
Substitute 3 tablespoons NuGrains™ Oat Fiber for every 8 servings per recipe. For example if recipe yields 24 cookies and serving size is 3 cookies, then substitute 3 tablespoons for flour in your recipe.”
I was initially impressed at the wide range of products that Nu Naturals provides. I am a fan of using stevia as a sweetener, versus always using sugar, honey or agave. It’s essentially a zero calorie sweetener that is naturally derived from the stevia plant, so it’s great to use in moderation if you are looking to stay fit & lean. As with any other food, you can overdo stevia. I don’t recommend using this all day, every day. Balance is key.
Nu Naturals products are Non-GMO, but they are not certified organic. However, I’ve been filled in on the story behind this:
“We absolutely use no pesticides or any chemicals & test our products to be assured of this. We just do not go to the huge expense of organic certification.”
I find this to be the case for some brands. Gaining an organic certification is very drawn own, expensive process. Thus, many companies do not see this certification as something they wish to attain.
I have enjoyed have stevia in various forms and flavors to use in my daily treats & drinks. My favorite ways to use these Nu Naturals products have been:
-Adding the liquid peppermint stevia to peppermint leaf tea.
-Adding the powdered stevia to baked goods (organic & gluten free muffins, cakes, cookies, etc.)
-Experimenting with using tagatose in baked goods.
-Adding the liquid vanilla stevia to my vanilla protein shakes.
-Making an “oat fiber cleanse” drink with the oat fiber. I simply add a tablespoon of the oat fiber to a large glass of water. It helps me get a good dose of fiber and also helps curb my appetite.
Nu Naturals products are an above average route to go to when looking for healthy sweeteners and baking aids. I would stand behind this brand more firmly if I knew that they used organic practices in growing their stevia, oats, etc.
