With all the distressing diet news about artificial sweeteners contributing to weight gain, one soda manufacturer is climbing on the weight loss wagon and challenging products like diet Coke and diet Pepsi with a unique formulation. Zevia is using monk fruit as a sweetener, adding it to stevia for a double win of all-natural zero-calorie taste.

Zevia now contains SweetSmart, a new purified stevia combined with monk fruit. The result is a soda with zero calories, no sugar, no high fructose corn syrup, zero glycemic index and no artificial sweeteners. It's also vegan, Kosher and gluten-free.
