In my house we call it go-geet. We also call muffins cupcakes. Do you see a pattern? (besides teaching the kids horrific spelling?) Yes, I try to convince the kids that the healthy desserts are actually sinful. We recently sampled the new iögo 0% yogurt with stevia extract, a100% natural origin calorie-free sweetener. They loved it. They took it for school lunches, ate it after dinner and I popped it into smoothies.
Thankfully, according to the FDA and Health Canada, you can’t overdose on stevia extract. Stevia extract is a 100% natural origin calorie-free sweetener made from the leaves of the stevia plant. It’s manufacturing process is the same as for natural flavours. Known first as the “sweet herb”, stevia is a native plant of Paraguay, South America and is 200 to 300 times sweeter than white sugar. When used in very small quantities, stevia extract can replace a portion of the sugar generally used in food products. As of November 2012, Health Canada approved the use of stevia extract in Canada. This agency established the safety of stevia extract as a food additive.
iögo 0% with stevia extract is free of fat, gelatin, colours and artificial flavours. It comes in the flavours of raspberry, blueberry, vanilla and mango-passion fruit. So have your cupcakes with go-geet. We won’t tell.
