For some, stevia is an acquired taste. It’s got a particular flavor that I love, but some just don’t. If you’re among the fans of stevia as a natural, plant-based sweetener that doesn’t bump your glucose, you’ve got a reason to rejoice: Zevia.
Zevia is a stevia-sweetened diet-soda (for those of you who are soft drink addicted) made just for people who like their carbonation and caffeine, but don’t want the chemicals of saccharine or aspartame.
Although the FDA hasn’t yet approved stevia as a food and drink additive, Zevia gets around this by marketing itself as a “dietary supplement.” Hey, whatever works.
