Cavalier Sugar free Chocolate with Stevia, a Natural Herbal Sweetener


Dark Stevia No Sugar added Cavalier Belgian Chocolate Bar at TAOS Gifts
Dark Chocolate with Stevia, a natural sweetner

Cavalier Belgian Chocolate containing Stevia is now available at TAOS Gifts.

Ideal for special diets as it doesn’t contain any added sugar, the sweet taste comes from Stevia, a natural herbal sweetener that’s more than 200 times sweeter than sugar.

Stevia contains no calories and no carbohydrates,  and  has been used as an alternative to sugar for hundreds of years.

The Stevia plant is originally native to South America where the Guarani people have been using it for sweetness for hundreds of years.

The Stevia extract is taken from the Stevia plant which grows with a little help from nature’s rich soil, warm sun and generous rain.

There are many great flavours and fruity combinations to choose from.

Fruity, Sweet, and sugar free!

Cavalier Dark Belgian Chocolate with Stevia is a rich dark chocolate that is rich in cocoa and has a delicious sweet taste from the natural herb.

As it contains Stevia, not sugar or artificial sweeteners it has no bitter after taste, no laxative effects and is kind to teeth!

Stevia has many significant benefits, for instance it does not have a laxative effect,  it is completely natural with a
huge sweetening power (300 times sweeter than sugar).

Only small quantities are needed,  it has been frequently tested and found to be 100% safe. Unlike some sweeteners, Stevia is totally non-carcinogenic, it is also stable when heated, hence suitable for frying and boiling.

Stevia is non-addictive, unlike ordinary sugar, for instance, replacing sugar with Stevia results in less plaque on teeth and fewer fillings.

Stevia contains zero calories and contributes to driving down obesity.

As well as all those benefits Cavalier have added a delicious fruity twist to some of their Stevia Chocolate range such as the tropical Cavalier White Mango and Raspberry White Chocolate Bar containing Stevia and dry chunks of fruit.

Stevia Herb natural sweetener, sweeter than sugar at TAOS Gifts
The Stevia Plant

Is Stevia (Full name Stevia Rebaudiana Bertoni) safe?

Yes, research shows that Stevia is perfectly safe. Despite 10 years of research into potential downsides in quantities, no adverse effects are known of to date. On the contrary even, health benefits have been demonstrated with intake in higher quantities.

The EFSA, the European Food Standards Agency, is also convinced of this and has officially approved the use of Stevia.
Why are we hearing about Stevia only now?

Stevia has actually been used for centuries as a natural sweetener in countries such as China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Israel, Uruguay, Brazil and Paraguay. In Japan for instance Stevia is added to soft drinks as a healthy replacement for aspartame.

Due to the availability and the emergence of cheaper sugar and synthetic sweeteners, the effect of Stevia remained a well-kept secret in Europe.

In view of the socioeconomic importance of these sectors, over the past 10 years the politicians have reviewed the policy on sugar subsidies, resulting in refineries being closed.

This has created a gap for Stevia.
