[toggles title=”Wholesome Organic Zero“]Wholesome ZeroSugar Organic Erythritol is the perfect sweetener for those living a healthy lifestyle. Zero is solely erythritol, a naturally occurring sugar alcohol that is found in our bodies, as well as in fruits, vegetables and ever certain fermented foods like soy sauce. It is a perfect mild-tasting natural sweetener with Zero Calories. It has a glycemic index of zero, so it sweetens without adding calories or spiking blood sugar the way other sweeteners often do. Research indicates that for most people, it’s highly digestible! Zero is made from plants; it is perfect for vegetarians and vegans.
Wholesome ZeroSugar Organic Erythritol is also ketogenic or approved for keto diets given that it contains zero net carbs. Our 100% pure organic erythritol does not contain any fillers or hidden carbs so it has no impact on blood glucose levels. Keto dieters often prefer our clean ingredient statement.[/toggles]

Wholesome Organic Stevia is great in beverages and sprinkled over cereal and fruit. It is a multi-purpose natural sweetener that is sweeter than sugar, so a little goes a long way! It is also calorie-free and has no glycemic impact which makes it perfect for those managing calories and blood sugar levels. Organic Stevia has no artificial fillers and is Certified Organic.
Wholesome Organic Stevia’s greatest quality is its taste – a unique blend of Organic Stevia and Organic Erythritol. This combination produces a smoother, more mellow taste compared to other products on the market. Try our delicious Organic Stevia recipes.[/toggles]

Does Wholesome! Zero Pass Through Your Body Without Being Absorbed?
Answer: Wholesome! Zero is made up of very small molecules … it is not metabolized, but is absorbed by the kidneys and nearly 96% of it passes through unchanged, the remaining 4% passes through the lower intestine also unchanged. So really, it sweetens gently then goes completely away.
Does Wholesome! Zero Cause Gassiness, Bloating, Or Digestive Disorders?
Answer: Any sugar alcohol can have the potential of causing these symptoms if consumed in excess. Of the sugar alcohols on the market, erythritol is one of the least likely to cause these types of problems, but like all sweeteners, we do recommend that it be used in moderation.

How Is Organic Stevia Zero Calories If You Add Inulin?
Answer: Technically, Agave Inulin does have a caloric value, as it is a dietary fiber and as such, our bodies can’t metabolize it. It passes through our stomach and into our large intestine. The Inulin has the added benefit of acting as a prebiotic in the intestine.
How Is Wholesome! Organic Stevia Processed?
Answer: Wholesome! Organic Stevia is an enzymatically enhanced full spectrum Stevia leaf extract. We intentionally utilize the full spectrum extraction of sweetness from the whole stevia leaf in order to retain the micronutrient properties of stevia. Extracting only the Reb-A eliminates all of the other herbal benefits stevia can provide. Our Organic Stevia is a full-spectrum extraction of the whole leaf, not just another Reb A-type stevia product, which means the micronutrients found in the Dulcosides or Reb-D remain. Reb-D, which contains the micronutrients and the bitter note, is removed from many other Stevia products. The natural process used in the production of Wholesome! Organic Stevia improves the stevia’s flavor, eliminating the bitter note common in many stevia products.
How Do You Store Wholesome! Organic Stevia? What Is Its Shelf Life?
Answer: Store Wholesome! Organic Stevia it in a cool, dry and dark environment preferably in a tightly sealed container. If stored properly our Wholesome! has a 3-year shelf life. Although, it tastes so good we doubt it will last that long!

Answer: No, not at this time.
How Do You Use Wholesome! Organic Stevia? Can I Bake With It? If So, What Is The Measurement In Baking When Substituting Sugar With Stevia? Can You Cook With It?
Answer: Wholesome! Organic Stevia is both pH and temperature stable, making it ideal for use in many foods and beverages. Based on its heat stability, Stevia can be used in most cooking or baking. Every 1/4 teaspoon of Wholesome Organic Stevia is equal to two teaspoons of sugar. You may choose to substitute only half the sugar in your recipe with Wholesome! Organic Stevia, which will give you a baked good just as sweet as the original recipe. Reduce your baking time when adding Wholesome! Organic Stevia to your recipe. The addition of Organic Stevia may speed up the caramelization of the crust during baking, giving your baked goods a crunchy brown crust in a shorter amount of time. Do not adjust baking temperature. Organic Stevia is suitable for baking yeast breads or other leavened baked goods. However, it may also change the texture of baked goods, so please, as always, give recipes a couple of test runs, making modifications as needed.

About Us :
Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of improving the tolerability of the paleo diet, and to help adherents easily identify products that met its basic tenets. Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Keto Certified, and lab -tested Grain-Free Gluten-Free certification programs.
100% of Paleo Foundation revenue is generated through certifications. We do not accept donations, corporate sponsorships, or financially benefit from the sales of any certified products, product giveaways, or partnerships with industry contacts or retailers for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of an impartial certification standard.
Each certification program has a different set of standards. Certified Paleo is the Paleo Foundation’s first, most popular, and highest level of certification for Paleo-compliant products. Certified Paleo Products are products that contain Paleo ingredients, but may have some 21st-century processing or packaging methods allowing for shelf stability.
Grain Free Gluten Free Certified products are gluten-free and do not contain any grains of gliadin competitive residues. All Grain-Free Gluten-Free products have undergone two rounds of audits, including lab tests, and a final review to become approved for the Grain-free Gluten-free Certified Program.
The ketogenic diet is a restrictive, demanding diet that can be difficult to maintain, and tolerability of the ketogenic diet is the single most important factor limiting individual acceptance for initiation. Therefore, improving the tolerability of the ketogenic diet is crucial to preventing diet discontinuation, warranting further investigation into methods for improving palatability, improving the availability and convenience of foods that are compliant with the ketogenic diet, as well as addressing cultural and social acceptance.
The Keto Diet product market may be in a unique position to improve tolerability, especially in social and cultural environments that typically feature carbohydrate-rich “special occasion” types of foods. In 2016, the Paleo Foundation launched the world's first Keto Certified program for products with standards that were developed for adherence to a classical ketogenic diet.
