NuNaturals Sent me their NuNana, Dutch Processed Cocoa, Collagen, Gellacious Gelatin, liquid stevia, and powdered stevia. As always, with anything you consume or use on your body, please do your own research as well. What is right (or not for us) may be the opposite for you. Be diligent, and listen to your body.
The NuNana banana flour and dutch cocoa make GREAT recipes. I used this for a huge batch of chocolate banana pancakes for breakfast and the freezer for later. They freeze REALLY well. I have added the cocoa to protein shakes, muffins, and made homemade cocoa with it (using honey).
NuStevia has Cocoa Mint syrup, cocoa syrup and a simple syrup. We limit our sugar so this has been a great alternative if you are looking at reducing your sugar consumption. These are all sugar free and calorie free. I have used the cocoa mint and cocoa in hot chocolate, protein shakes, pancakes and many other things just to add a bit of sweetness and another flavor. I notice a slight aftertaste if I use too much, so less is more. You could also use this in coffee, ice cream, oatmeal, or baking treats. You could even make a sugar free frosting or whipping cream!
NuNaturals has alcohol free Clear NuStevia, Vanilla NuStevia, Lemon NuStevia. We used these to add a bit more flavor to recipes. 5 drops (.25 ml) (approx 1/4 dropperful) is as sweet as 1 tsp of sugar. This is actually really good in tea, coffee, or lemonade! They suggest yogurt, but I don't do dairy so cannot attest to that.
These are to-go packets of the cocoa syrup! This is great if you want to order a steamer or coffee at your local coffee place and save some cash and lower your sugar!
I also had White Stevia Powder packets but lost my picture of them.
From what I can tell all their products are free of saccharin, aspartame, sucralose, artificial sweeteners, msg, preservatives, soy, milk, synthetics, artificial colors or flavors! Fantastic!
