Everyday, the team here at Canyon Ranch addresses a wide range of topics that impact our guests’ health and wellbeing in ways great and small. We treat each item with equal importance. One recent question – should we offer Stevia as a sweetener to our guests? Although this may seem like a rather simple question, here at Canyon Ranch we needed to dissect it further.
First off, for those who may not know, Stevia is a very sweet herbal extract that can sweeten with fewer calories.
With the help of Marilyn Majchrzak and her food development team, we ran Stevia through a battery of tests. Based on those tests, we’ve decided to offer Stevia as a condiment. We do not, however, use it as a cooking ingredient.
To create an environment that helps guests live a truly healthier life, you have to think comprehensively. Every single thing – no matter how small – contributes to the environment we’re striving to create.
We filter our own water, create our own solar power, and mix our own natural sports drink. We’ve even installed machines that wash all the produce that enter our restaurants. Nothing is overlooked. Some people might call us obsessed — and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
Yours in health –
