For decades, coffee had received a bad reputation. Besides allegedly triggering high blood pressure, insomnia, and hyperacidity, the Filipino habit of adding lots of sugar and cream to one’s cup has been said to aggravate diabetes.
While there’s no denying the Pinoy coffee fan his morning cup, there is concern over the amount of sugar present in commercial 3-in-1 coffee mixes. The leading brand has 14.6 grams of sugar in one 20-gram sachet alone. Imagine how much sugar you’re taking in if you drink an average of three cups of coffee a day.
What About Sugar-Free Coffee?
For health-conscious individuals, especially diabetics, turning to sugar-free coffee mixes seems to be the only option. This meant enduring tasteless cups of coffee to satisfy their caffeine fix —until Stevia came along.
Stevia is a low-calorie, zero-sugar sweetener that tastes so much better than artificial sweeteners.
Stevia is an herb with a sweet-tasting extract that comes from the leaves of the Stevia rebaudiana plant. It has been enjoyed since pre-Columbian South America, where indigenous people used the herb to sweeten their tea and other drinks.
The plant's taste stems from steviol glycosides, 250–300 times sweeter than regular sugar.
It became popular among health-conscious individuals because stevia has a shallow caloric content. This makes it perfect for dieters and people who are trying to lose weight.
Moreover, Stevia makes coffee and tea taste so much better without adding any calories.
Aside from beverages, Stevia is also used as an alternative sweetener when cooking or baking.
The Health Advantages of Stevia
Stevia is a safe, healthy sugar substitute that can sweeten up food without the adverse health effects of refined sugar. It’s also associated with several impressive benefits such as reduced calorie intake, managed blood sugar levels, and minimized risk of cavities.
Additionally, while other sugar substitutes like Aspartame have been linked with cancer, there's no evidence linking stevia to cancer since it is a natural ingredient.
This means you can add stevia to dishes and drinks without fear that you’re taking too much sugar or that you’ll get sick a few years down the road.
For coffee lovers, it’s also good to note that locally-made Glorious Blend coffees and instant beverages have Stevia as its natural sweetener. The blend of natural and healthful ingredients makes the drink not only refreshing and safe but also good for one’s overall health.

study found that drinking coffee might help lower your risk of developing type 2 diabetes. And I thought that this brand of Glorious Blend coffee is fit for our health and daily coffee intake. And I've learned that Stevia is natural, unlike other sugar substitutes. It's made from a leaf related to popular garden flowers like asters and chrysanthemums. In some countries people have been using stevia leaves to sweeten drinks like tea for many years. And for me and my hubby we love to drink black coffee to avoid and control sugar level that we intake. Thanks for sharing this mommy, this coffee is a must try, para magamit ko na yung coffee maker ko 🙂.ReplyDelete
Advance Happy Mother's Day, stay safe and more coffee for us.
My Family Especially me and my father loves to sip a cup of coffee..Kaso madalang namin naeenjoy ang Paginom ng kape because of its health problem saka sa hyper acidity ko..Good to know na meron na po palang ganitong kape sa Sa Pilipinas..We can now enjoy drinking coffee without hesitation..thanks for sharing this mommy reylenReplyDelete
Yes, it's true. Ang hilig nating mga pinoy sa sweets lalo na ako. Isa sa sinabi sa akin nang doctor na bawal ay ang kape or coffee. Pero kung hindi mo kayang pagbawalan ang sarili mo, drink 1/4 only not half. Imagine! Btw, I'm diabetic. I'm happy that Glorious Blend coffee comes to the rescue by using Stevia which is an alternative for commercialized sugar.ReplyDelete
