Omica Organics' Liquid Stevia is a naturally zero-calorie highly-concentrated direct extract. Created using a proprietary production method, this is an unreconstituted stevia extract. The result is an aromatic, dynamic sweetness without the bitterness associated with other stevia products. This stevia is cultivated from an extensive network of family-owned stevia farms. Self-sustaining farming methods help preserve the naturally-beneficial phytochemicals of the stevia leaf. The stevia leaves are picked by hand at the peak time of the growing season and then dried naturally with sunlight and fresh air.
