      Really? Do a forum search and see 10+ pages of references to stevia.

      I don't use it. I'll use honey or real sugar for certain things, but for the most part I avoid eating foods that needs to be sweetened.

          Is Stevia Healthy? | Mark's Daily Apple

          "We can think about stevia as a Primal sugar alternative with some potentially therapeutic effects. Kind of like cinnamon or turmeric, we don’t consume it for the calories or as literal fuel for our bodies, but for flavor, variety, and, possibly, the health benefits. It may induce insulin secretion, but it increases insulin sensitivity, reduces blood glucose (i.e., the insulin is doing its job), and does not increase appetite. It’s been used by humans for hundreds of years and by diabetic patients in Asia for decades. The goofy health food store dude who claims aspartame was created by Donald Rumsfeld to give us cancer may be a vociferous supporter of it, but don’t hold that against stevia. I’m a fan of the stuff and recommend it as a Primal way to satisfy a sweet tooth."

            There are several interesting studies quoted about Stevia here: SuppVersity - Nutrition and Exercise Science for Everyone

            It appears to be very promising on several health fronts!

              It's fine but my crusade is to get y'all trying xylitol or however the heck you spell it.

              About half the calories of normal sugar, actually protects instead of rotting teeth, entirely natural and no wonky aftertaste.
