Planet Smoothie’s exclusive Lean Leaf sweetener is made from two of the sweetest plants on the planet: Agave and Stevia. Lean Leaf is a planet-based sweetener that utilizes only naturally-occurring sugars, resulting in significantly lower calories. It has a low glycemic index and is a natural choice for people who want to live a healthier lifestyle and is an excellent source of sweetness for people who monitor their sugar intake.

Stevia

Stevia is a member of the Chrysanthemum family and is a natural herbal sweetener with no calories and no carbohydrates. The Stevia leaf has been used for hundreds of years in South America to sweeten foods and drinks and is much sweeter than sugar. Amazingly, Stevia does not adversely affect blood glucose levels.



Agave

The Agave plant grows in Mexico and the southwestern United States. The syrup or nectar from the Agave plant is about 55% fructose in the most natural form and has a sweet honey-like flavor. Agave has a low glycemic index, which helps to maintain positive blood sugar levels. The Agave used by Planet Smoothie is Kosher certified and is not genetically modified.
