Grow organic hydroponic stevia for sale to health food stores. Green stevia now retails for $2 an ounce.
Stevia leaf now sells for $2 an ounce. Retail.
Stevia concentrate — the white powder — sells for $10 an ounce.
Green stevia can flavor tea, deserts, cereal. I have added fresh stevia to salads.
Stevia concentrate can replace sugar in many recipes.
Though I maintain a vegetarian diet for health and savings — vegetables, grains, fruit, no sugar, no corporate foods, very infrequent restaurant meals, I know that others crave sugar drinks.
Though fruit drinks contain natural sugars, too often people dump ounces of white fructose sugar into their drinks. For example, lemonade — how much sugar in a pitcher of lemonade?
Stevia can cut the dependence on sugar for sweetening. At a recent culinary arts show, I tried lemonade accented with mint. The chef could have also included stevia as leaves and as concentrate.
Stevia leaves chewed release a spark of sudden sweetness.
Replacing sugar with stevia would aid in weight loss, weight maintenance, and avoidance of Type 2 diabetes.
( Would stevia also effect the progression of cirrhosis? Alcohol is liquid sugar. Could the overall reduction in sugar consumed strengthen the liver of drinkers who will not moderate their alcohol? )
There would also be cosmetic gains. As fructose converts to fat, stevia would avoid fat appearing on the torso, the arms and legs, or the neck and face.
For a quick video on stevia in salads, go to the video in which Miknonaan makes a stevia tofu salad.
She uses stevia with tofu. Like her basil and mint salads, this stevia salad deserves the name, ‘confection.’
( An additional detail: Many health advocates recommend tofu — a soy product — for older women enduring menopause. They believe soy may act as a natural estrogen replacement contributing to stronger bones, firmer breasts, beautiful skin, and continuing libido. )
