What is “Un-reconstituted?”
Standard methods for creating stevia liquid extracts consist of dehydrating the stevia extract using a spray-dry method, then later reconstituting the resulting white stevia powder back into liquid prior to bottling. Though spray-drying is a high-heat process that essentially eliminates all nutritional value, the majority of liquid stevias are made this way to make shipping and storing much less costly for the manufacturer.
Omica Organics’ method is markedly different. Our exclusive, proprietary TruExtractTM method produces a direct liquid extract that remains a liquid from leaf to bottle, and which retains all the natural nutritional benefits of the stevia plant.
A Word About Preservatives, Glycerin, and Alcohol
Most sweeteners except honey must contain preservatives. The only question is the quality used. The most common preservatives found in liquid stevias are synthetics, mainly potassium sorbate, citric acid, or benzoic acid.
Instead of synthetics, we choose to use only the finest alcohol and glycerin available, and in the lowest amounts possible. We use Certified Organic Biodynamic Grape Alcohol, and Certified Organic Vegetable Glycerin.
Let’s Talk About Coagulation or “Cloudiness”
Coagulation is inherent in high-quality liquid stevia. The Omica stevia will eventually cloud or sometimes coagulate over time.
You may have noticed that some honeys will crystallize (coagulate) while other brands don’t. Honey that crystallizes is more natural and only lightly processed, while honey that doesn’t crystallize has been highly processed.
Please know that, just as crystallized honey is normal and safe, our stevia is also safe to use when coagulated or cloudy. To re-liquefy, stand the bottle and dropper in a cup of hot water.
Our organic glycerin and alcohol do help combat coagulation, but we use the lowest amounts possible that will preserve. To keep liquid stevia completely clear would require much more than that, and in those quantities, the distinct tastes of both glycerin and alcohol would be unmistakable.
Many manufacturers make their liquid stevia from a spray-dried white powder which keeps their stevia appearing completely clear for years.
For us, the choice was obvious. We make our Liquid Stevia Extracts from the finest high Reb-A Stevioside green leaves, use only the smallest amounts of the highest quality Organic Vegetable Glycerin and Organic Biodynamic Grape Alcohol possible, use no synthetic chemicals or preservatives, and process the more natural way without spray-drying and reconstituting. We’re sure you’ll agree that we offer the best liquid stevia on the market.
If you prefer a high-quality clear liquid (without rich texture, aroma, and color), we do offer an excellent white stevia extract powder that will make several gallons of clear, liquid stevia when diluted with water. Though Omica’s white stevia extract powder is spray-dried and further filtered (the only way to make a stevia extract powder), it is still free of additives and non-organic (synthetic) solvents. Our stevia extract powder also contains high levels of Rebaudioside-A and low levels of Rebaudioside-C giving it a very clean sweet taste with very little to no aftertaste.
Glass Containers and Droppers
In keeping with Omica Organics’ high standards, we pay close attention to detail. For instance, all of our liquid supplements and our stevias are sold in glass bottles with custom-made blunt-tipped glass droppers so there is no plastic touching the liquid. For further safety, we undertook to have special droppers custom produced just for our products, rather than purchase industry-standard glass bull-nose droppers, which have a long, thin tip and are prone to breaking.
