PORTLAND, Ore.—Steviva Brands, Inc., has developed flavored-milk recipes using Fructevia™, a blend of natural fructose, inulin stevia and magnesium carbonate, as an all-natural replacement for sugar and artificial sweeteners providing a solution to the chocolate milk debate and childhood nutrition.

Fructevia is diabetic-safe, GMO-free, gluten-free and chemical-free, as well as free from the bitter notes and aftertaste that are found in some stevia products. The nutritional profile of Fructevia is enhanced by combining proprietary steviol compounds with non-GMO crystalline fructose and inulin fiber, a prebiotic promoting healthy gut flora.

Fructevia contributes 1.2 calories per gram. It's safe for children and can be an important ingredient in defense against developing childhood obesity and diabetes, said Thom King, president, Steviva Brands. "The health benefits of this all-natural sweetener will interest schools and milk producers looking for a low-caloric and low-glycemic option to sugar, high-fructose corn syrup or artificial sweeteners."
