Stevia is a natural sweetener that does not raise blood sugar, making it an ideal product for dieters and diabetics. It was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2008 and is used as a sugar substitute in many diet drinks.

Drinks Made With Stevia

In 2014, Coca-Cola and Pepsi released midcalorie colas using stevia and cane sugar as sweeteners. Coca-Cola Life has 60 calories per 8-ounce serving. True Pepsi contains 60 calories per 7.5-ounce can and is being sold exclusively through Amazon.com. Both products are easily identified by their green labels. Other beverages containing stevia include: Sprite Green, Odwalla, Glaceau Vitaminwater Zero, Honest Tea, Trop 50 and various flavors of SoBe Lifewater.
