SweetLeaf® Stevia Sweetener named First Stevia Brand to Receive Paleo Certification

Posted on December 20th, 2016, in Press Release.

Better-for-the-body sweetener is now the only officially paleo stevia

GILBERT, AZ (December 20, 2016) – SweetLeaf® Stevia Sweetener and SweetLeaf Organic Stevia Sweetener packets have both officially received the Certified Paleo designation from Paleo Foundation Inc. This newly granted status makes SweetLeaf Stevia packets the only stevia on the market to receive this certification.

As a Certified Paleo product, SweetLeaf meets the requirements of the paleo diet, as outlined by the Paleo Foundation. The plant-based sweetener contains no grains, legumes, dairy, artificial colorings, or preservatives.

The paleo movement is important for providing an option for consumers who limit their diet for a number of reasons, including health, taste, and the environment. This new label will help shoppers easily identify SweetLeaf Stevia Sweetener and SweetLeaf Organic Stevia Sweetener packets as meeting the criteria they seek for their chosen lifestyle and diet.

The non-profit Paleo Foundation acts a third party to vet products based on their ingredients and processing methods. The foundation also seeks to spread public awareness about the paleo lifestyle and effect changes to promote a healthy population.

In addition to meeting paleo requirements, SweetLeaf Stevia Sweetener and Organic Stevia packets contain no sugars, zero calories or carbs, and no artificial ingredients, while also being gluten-free and Non-GMO Project verified, with a non-glycemic response. Both are available in boxes containing 35 or 70 packets, and each packet is as sweet as two teaspoons of sugar.

“We are thrilled to receive this newest certification from the Paleo Foundation,” said Carol May, President of Wisdom Natural Brands®, SweetLeaf’s parent company. “Attaining paleo certification is just one more way we seek to assure our customers that we care about what they put in their bodies. The fact that we are the only Certified Paleo stevia brand says it all.”
