Belize resort gets greener and sweeter!

Hamanasi has acquired an Organic Plumb Candy Leaf Plant (Stevia plummerae)! This little plant packs an huge sweet punch! The small bushy plant has mint shaped leaves, and its extract has up to 300 times the sweetness of sugar! Due to its amazing sweetness, Stevia has garnered attention with the rise in demand for low-carbohydrate, low-sugar food alternatives. Because Stevia has a negligible effect on blood glucose, and even enhancing glucose tolerance, it is attractive as a natural sweetener to people on carbohydrate-controlled diets and as a natural sweetener to diabetics. The “Sugar Leaf” is an exciting addition to Hamanasi’s ever-growing organic garden! We’re already busily thinking of exciting new applications for this naturally sweet leaf…
Tea anyone?
