McNeil Nutritionals, LLC, the maker of SPLENDA® Sweeteners, announces the launch of NECTRESSE™ Natural No Calorie Sweetener (pronounced Neck-TRESS). It is the only 100 percent natural, zero calorie per serving sweetener made from the goodness of real fruit – monk fruit extract – available at stores nationwide.
The new sweetener derives its natural sweetness from the monk fruit, a small green melon that has been cultivated in Asia for hundreds of years. Found on lush vines in remote mountain regions, monk fruit is traditionally grown in small family orchards. Today, McNeil Nutritionals, LLC, has combined naturally sweet monk fruit extract with the perfect blend of other natural sweeteners to bring consumers the rich sweet taste of sugar without all the calories.

Last summer, Sierra Coulthard’s life changed forever.
She spent a week identifying her strengths and discovering who she was. She learned what it takes to be a leader and how leaders can change lives. And the Wisconsin high school student realized just how real and rampant poverty is in the world today.
“My eyes were opened to so many troubles in the world,“ she said. “I saw how real the needs of people are and I wanted to do something to help.”
Coulthard returned home and immediately connected with Nashville-based Soles4Souls, which since 2005 has secured more than 17 million new and gently used shoes for people throughout the world. The charity shipped her a large supply of new shoe boxes that she placed throughout her home town of Neillsville to encourage donations. Nearly 1,000 pairs of shoes were donated to the “Sierra’s Shoes” drive.
And last month, she was able to travel to Haiti and pass them out to deserving children who needed them.
Coulthard’s vision for the drive was developed at the National FFA Organization’s annual Washington Leadership Conference, which focuses on leadership development, personal growth and community service. More than 2,200 students – up to 340 a week – from throughout the U.S. who are FFA members will attend one of the conference’s seven week-long sessions in June and July.
