I’m an unsweet tea drinker. I know, I know. I live in Texas and prefer unsweet tea to sweet. Some people call me crazy. [ahem, Bobbie.] But some people agree with me on the unsweet tea front. [Those are my people! Heyyyy.]
But I have a little secret. I wasn’t always a fan of unsweet tea. I use to put a packet or two of the pink stuff in it to sweetened it up.
And then I learned that the little pink packet has a secret – its pretty bad for you! Its full of all kinds artificial ingredients that are harmful. No thanks!
So I went back to drinking plain unsweet tea. I’ve grown to like it, but do miss my faux-sweet tea.
Then I found an alternative – Truvia! And I know what you’re thinking – but I had started using Truvia before I was approached to write about them. [For reals for reals.] My mom introduced it to me and gave me a box. Then I started reading up on them and did a happy dance.
Truvia strives not only for healthy growing practices, they also focus on the surrounding communities. Truvia is grown in Bolivia and they have fed over 49,000 school children and donated nearly $1 million! They truly care about their workers [they are part of the Supplier Ethical Data Exchange], their communities and the environment. The video below shares:
– Nearly 40 percent of the Bolivian population unable to afford adequate food for a healthy life.
– 65 percent of all rural households in Bolivia are unable to afford the minimum recommended caloric intake.
