    Just needing to make sure… in any of your products do you have any ingredients that are derived from corn? Have have major sensitivity towards corn as well as gluten so I have to be double cautious! Thanks!

    • SweetLeaf Stevia

      When it comes to your health and safety, there is no such thing as being too cautious! You’ll be glad to know that our products are free of corn and corn derived ingredients.

      • Jenni Bosi

        Are your new water drops free of corn? I see that they contain citric acid. Is that deprived from corn?

        • SweetLeaf Stevia

          @jennib0674:disqus, our Water Drops are also 100% free of corn. Also, we’re holding a 30% off promotion in our online store than applies to Water Drops and the rest of your order! :)


  • Kelly

    What type of plant fiber is the inulin from?

    • SweetLeaf Stevia

      Hi Kelly, great question! It is derived from chicory root.

  • Liz

    I’m wondering about the relative sweetness of the drops, packets, tablets, “loose” powder (in the shakable canister), and sugar. Is this equivalence correct?
    5 drops = 1 packet = 2 tablets = 1/2 tsp powder = 2 tsp of sugar

  • Jay

    Do any of the Stevia plants you use in sweetleaf come from China?

  • SweetLeaf Stevia

    We are proud to use a water based extraction method.

  • SweetLeaf Stevia

    Our inulin (which is derived from chicory root) is used in our powder packets and 4oz shaker jar to help make the product easier to measure out, however we also carry a pure powder extract with no additional ingredients.

    The drops have never included inulin. Regarding the natural flavors, they are plant based, which means that we use a combination of herbs, fruits, vegetables, and essences. Sweet Drops contain no MSG or any flavor enhancers. Our liquids are also vegan and gluten free, meaning they contain no corn, wheat, barley or rye. We do not use GMO products.

    • Kimmer

      Can you elaborate on exactly what is in the natural flavors? The description is very vague, and there are many products, ingredients, and food I cannot consume for health reasons. Thank you.

      • SweetLeaf Stevia

        @disqus_ny1yF4D6pe:disqus, our natural flavoring is a proprietary blend of herbs, fruits and vegetables. However, if you let us know which ingredients you need to avoid, we can confirm whether or not our products contain those ingredients.

        • Kimmer

          Thank you, but I prefer to support brands that are transparent about what is in their products.

  • kelyi

    Are all the stevia plants you use organic? Are they GMO?

    • SweetLeaf Stevia

      Our stevia extract is organic and our products are all natural. All of our products are non-GMO, and a number of our products have been Non-GMO Project Verified and we are awaiting on verification on the rest.

  • Mickaela

    Is each packet really 0 calories ? I ask because I have tried other kind of stevia and it turns out it was 3 calories per packet cause it contained dextrose :(

    • SweetLeaf Stevia

      Hi @disqus_TfM2e33JOb:disqus, thanks for reaching out. Each packet of SweetLeaf Stevia is indeed 0 calories. If you have any other questions, we’re here to help. :)

  • Amy

    What is the best thing to do if your SweetLeaf has hardened?

    • SweetLeaf Stevia

      Amy, this is the first time we’ve heard of an issue like this. Would you be able to supply us with more details, such as the specific product and lot number? If you feel more comfortable giving us this information over email, we can be reached at social@sweetleaf.com.

  • Raeosunshine59

    Is there any other source for inulin other than chicory root? I’m really, really allergic to products with inulin. I saw that you carry a line without inulin, but I couldn’t find it in my area. Is the name, or label different?

    • SweetLeaf Stevia

      @Raeosunshine59:disqus, our liquid products and stevia extracts do not contain inulin. You can find them in our online store: http://www.shopsweetleaf.com

  • Janet B

    I have researched all of the stevia packets and have decided yours is the best as far as the fillers go. But there is one concern that bothers me. Yours are the only ones that come in an aluminum packet. I’m trying to stay away from aluminum because of all the concerns about Alzheimers. Do you make any without this aluminum?
    Thank you……Janet

  • you don’t get it

    Thank you for this product! Is there a way to get some samples for clients of mine (I’m a dietitian), and to order some wholesale to sell? Cathyhains@gmail.com
