Stevia

There are many kinds of Stevia in the health food shops. Which kind is the healthiest? I imagine the liquid form without erythritol, or any '-itols' (sugar alcohols) or additives.

Re: Stevia

Greetings! Welcome Cambridge8 to the diet and nutrition healthboard. I admit I wanted to use some of this thinking it was a natural extract from a plant and even did use some. Later someone informed me of an implication of cancer and now there is a debate about whether or not Stevia causes cancer or not. Some think it might and others think its fine without any problems at all. Of course everyone makes their own healthcare decisions in life and about whether or not they want to use it and is in charge of their own health care. Perhaps a University Nutritionist or other health professional could be asked about it. Peace sjb

Re: Stevia

Well, guess I better check into this. Stevia is what I am using. I wonder what is the safest sugar free sweetener to use.

Re: Stevia

Greetings while persimmons are not sugar free their sugar is supposed to be released slowly. As long as a diabetic does not have a Candida infection anywhere or intestinal yeast it should be safe for most of them. Apples are not sugar free either but these are usually digested fairly well by diabetics also. Peace, sjb

Re: Stevia

A friend of mine went to a nutrionist and gave him all kinds of tests. She told him that he should stay clear of anything with gluten...and sweeteners were horrible. Except Stevia...
interesting huh?
