We add a touch of organic stevia and organic erythritol (fermented glucose) at the end of the natural fermentation process. This adds back a touch of sweetness and balances out the flavours after we naturally brew out all of the sugar. Both the stevia and erythritol we use are 100% natural and certified organic.
Stevia is a plant that belongs to the chrysanthemum family, which grows in Paraguay and Brazil. It contains no fructose yet is 300 times sweeter than sugar. Erythritol aka fermented glucose is a naturally occurring nectar commonly found in pears, watermelons, grapes and other fermented products like wine, cheese and soy sauce. Both stevia and erythritol have been used as natural sweeteners in many parts of the world for hundreds of years.
