What Does Natural Mean to Us?
There are different definitions of “natural” in the food industry and among consumers. For us at SPLENDA® Brand, “natural” means no artificial flavors or colors, no preservatives, and only non-GMO ingredients made by minimal and common processes.

What is SPLENDA® Naturals Stevia Sweetener, Packets and Jar?
SPLENDA® Naturals Stevia Sweetener, Packets and Jar are great-tasting, no-calorie natural sweeteners made with stevia extract- but not just any stevia extract: SPLENDA® Naturals gets its unique sweetness from Reb D, one of the tastiest extracts from the stevia leaf. (We believe the “D” stands for delicious!)
Until now, you may have only tasted sweeteners with a stevia extract called Reb A, which can have a bitter aftertaste. By using a stevia extract that’s rich in Reb D, we have truly unlocked the naturally sweet taste of stevia. It’s how the SPLENDA® Brand does natural!
SPLENDA® Naturals is made with 2 non-GMO ingredients: stevia leaf extract and erythritol. Dried stevia leaves are steeped in hot water to extract glycosides: the sweet-tasting parts of the leaf. The water is then filtered so the remaining material can be isolated and purified. The process, and processing aids, produce a crystalized sweet extract of the leaf. Please see FAQs for more information.
Erythritol is made primarily from dextrose using a fermentation process. Please see FAQs for more information.
What is SPLENDA® Naturals Stevia Sweetener, Granulated?
The Granulated product is a convenient form of SPLENDA® Naturals Stevia Sweetener that can be used to sweeten cup for cup like sugar. It has no calories, no added flavors, no added colors, nor artificial ingredients, and no bitter aftertaste. SPLENDA® Naturals Stevia Sweetener, Granulated is made from two non-GMO ingredients: stevia leaf extract and organic tapioca maltodextrin. Stevia leaves are steeped in hot water to extract the sweetest parts of the leaf and then undergo a process to separate, filter and purify the extract. Tapioca Maltodextrin starts with organic tapioca cassava which undergoes an enzymatic process to become organic maltodextrin.
