NuNaturals NuStevia Giveaway Winner



















Thank you to everyone who entered my NuNaturals NuStevia Giveaway! We have four lucky winners, plus a stevia-sweetened pumpkin spice muffin recipe coming for all of you. Two of my wonderful readers tested the recipe for me, so thank you to Malary and Julia for your help! I'm happy to say that since I've switched to using stevia in my recipes, my baked goods now last me about a week rather than the normal two days I would usually eat them in! They taste just as good, but I don't get all crazy and eat them in one sitting. So happily, I still have a few of these in the fridge to have for breakfast over the next couple of days. I'll be back in a few days with the recipe, but in the meantime, congratulations to the giveaway winners:

Woohoo! Can't wait to give this a go! I'll have to reread your recipes, looking for stevia-friendly ones!

Congrats Stephanie! Can you e-mail me your address? I only have a couple of stevia recipes so far, but I'm having a ton of fun coming up with more!

i have a question about the NuNaturals baking blend. can i use it if i am gluten free? i noticed it contains oat fiber.

Iris said...

That's a good question, Ellen. I received the baking blend but haven't used it. I didn't notice the oat flour in the ingredients, so I'll have to e-mail NuNaturals and ask about that. I would definitely hold off on using it until you find out if the oats are gluten-free or not. I already e-mailed them a while back about the gluten-free status of their products, and this was the response I got:
We use pure grain alcohol in some of our liquids and studies report grain alcohols are safe for celiacs because gluten does not survive the distillation process.

In our alcohol free liquids we use vegetable glycerine coming from palm oil which is considered gluten free.

We do use maltodextrin in some of our products such as the Baking Blends, however our maltodextrin comes from corn & is such a highly processed ingredient that the protein is removed, rendering it gluten free.

thanks for the info! i am hoping it is so highly processed that it is rendered GF.

YAY!!!! I'm so happy about this giveaway! Thanks for providing it and the Stevia! I can't wait to try it out. :)

Ellen said...

I'm wondering if you heard back about the baking blend as to whether it contains gluten?

Iris said...

Hi Ellen,

My response above is all I heard from NuNaturals. So my belief is that it's gluten-free due to the maltodextrin being from corn. However, I haven't looked into it further since I'm unlikely to use it. I prefer the pure stevia without any added fillers.
