Made using the sweetest and freshest tips of leaves from the stevia plant, it contains zero calories, is low in carbohydrates and is fructose-free. Its ingredients are also low in GI.
The ingredient has been used in a new lemon poppyseed bundt cake by the Primrose Bakery in Notting Hill. Rebecca Carlton, chef at Primrose Bakery said, “There is a growing demand for sugar-free cakes and Natvia offers the perfect solution. It’s a great product to work with - not only is the sponge of our Sugar Free Lemon Poppy seed bundt cake made using Natvia, it is also soaked with a lemon juice and Natvia drizzle.”
Sam Tew, co-founder of Natvia, said, “We’re really pleased Primrose Bakery has created such a great recipe using Natvia, showing how well the product works as a sugar alternative, and offering diabetics and the health conscious the chance to make and enjoy a healthy cake that still tastes delicious.”
