Would you please STOP PUTTING STEVIA IN EVERYTHING!!! It is not a healthy alternative to sweetener. Not only does it taste horrible, it gives my wife and I allergy symptoms and migraines. We are not alone in this either. There’s a growing group of people that cannot tolerate this garbage.

It does not belong in diet foods or flavored protein powders that are generally used by the health conscious. And your attempt to hide it by calling it Reb. A is unconscionable.

Sure it’s cheap and other, safer sweeteners are harder to mix but we’d gladly pay more for food without stevia.

Don't even get me started on alcohol sweeteners like Xylitol.

Very rarely can I not taste if something has Stevie in it, do not like the taste.
Only exception is the protein powder my wife gets through her job

I don't understand how people can stand fake sugar.

I'm trying to avoid HFCS as well. All of that shit is nasty.

Stevia is the only sugar substitute I can stand, as a diabetic (II) with a sweet tooth, it's a godsend.

It's still substantially healthier that cane/beet aka real sugar.
Agreed though it is best to minimize use if possible.
I don't care for the taste in comparison either.
Corn Syrup Fructose is even worse, want to complain about something then complain about cramming this in everything.

Loathe it. I’ll just deal with the taste of no sweetener to avoid it. Nasty shit.



What am I doing? I'm talking to an empty telephone

True but there’s no pretense that HFCS containing foods are healthy choices.

I don’t drink much Coke, but I much prefer Mexican Coke with cane sugar to domestic Coke with HFCS.

I started using agave as a substitute sweetener, until I read that some people get headaches from it. And lately I've been having a big problem with...headaches.

Also, apparently it's not all that healthy as it's cracked up to be.

You can definitely taste Stevia, but I think that Splenda stands out more. The only one I delve into is aspartame in my Diet Dr.Pepper. No way am I giving that one up. Even though I'm a Type I diabetic, I use real sugar in everything I cook/bake. It's all about moderation.

I won't buy any product that has any type of artificial sweetener. They all taste like SHIT aside from questionable fitness for human consumption.

Why aren’t they using Allulose? Someone on this forum alerted me to it, and I use it wherever I can. Half as sweet as regular sugar, your body only processes 5% of it, so it effectively only has 10% of the calories and insulin response.
