organic plant-based sweeteners

We don’t add any sugar to our drinks… none. ever. 

Though, if you’ve tasted mymuse, you know they’re deliciously refreshing with just the right amount of sweetness.

That sweet flavor is from two naturally-occurring, plant-based sweeteners that are sugar-free and have no calories:  Organic Stevia and Organic Erythritol.


Stevia is a sweet plant from the sunflower family, native to South America, that has been used to sweeten drinks and teas since the 16th century. Stevia is naturally 200-300 times sweeter than table sugar, so a little bit goes a long way. 

As a bonus, growing stevia is more sustainable than other mainstream sweeteners as well, as it typically uses about 20% of the land and much less water to provide the same amount of sweetness.  


Erythritol occurs naturally in fruits such as pears, peaches, grapes, watermelons and mushrooms as well as fermentation-derived foods such as wine, beer and cheese.

Both Stevia and Erythritol are safe as part of a healthy diet and contribute no calories or net carbohydrates to our diets, have no effect on blood sugar and create no insulin response. 


While there is 1g of sugar in our Organic Enhanced Waters, that is from the naturally-occurring sugar in the Organic Coconut Water in those drinks.


Oh! And we only use USDA Certified Organic Stevia and Erythritol (and coconut water) which ensures they’re non-GMO and grown using sustainable practices.  (You’re welcome!)


mymuse is a great addition to low sugar diets, low carb diets like Atkins, low or reduced calorie diets and keto diets.
