‘Stevia’ powder wins misleading consumer award

A powered form of the natural plant sweetener stevia has won this year’s Foodwatch award as the most misleading product of 2013.

Nearly 4,000 people voted in favour of giving the award to the Douwe Egberts product Natrena Stevia Kristalpoeder.

Foodwatch says just 3% of the powder comes from the Stevia plant and the rest is cheap maltodextrin.
