Once stevia leaves reach their peak sweetness, they are harvested and dried. The dried stevia leaves are soaked in water to unlock the best-tasting, sweet substance found in the leaf.  

This extract is then filtered, purified, dried and crystalized. The finished ingredient is a sweetener that can be used in combination with sweeteners like sugar and fruit juice to deliver great-tasting reduced-, low-, and no-kilojoule beverages.
