Stevia is a natural origin sweetener extracted from the Stevia Rebaudiana plant, native to South America where tribes have used it for over 1500 years. It is 150-200 times sweeter than sugar, so a little goes a long way!
Stevia is a high quality and safe sweetener for decades, high purity stevia extracts have been approved for use in foods and beverages in Japan. In the last five years, leading food safety and regulatory agencies across the world have issued positive safety opinions on the safe use of purified stevia extracts in foods and beverages.
These include the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA), the French ANSES (National Agency for the Security of Food, the Environment and the Work), the Food Standards of Australia New Zealand, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and most recently the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).

Many soft drinks, particularly colas, contain phosphorus in the form of phosphoric acid.
Phosphorus is present in the human body and, like calcium, is important for healthy bones. Phosphoric acid is found in food and is essential for the proper maintenance and growth of healthy bones and other tissues.
Phosphorus is found in many foods and the body is very rarely deficient in it. On the contrary, excessive use of phosphorus prevents the body’s absorption of calcium, which is directly associated with maintenance of the bones. It is advisable to use phosphorus sparingly to reduce complications in the body.
