    I have used a stevia product with the brand name of EQUATE. On the package it says that more than 5 packets of stevia is not recommended. Why is that?

    I am diabetic. I have been using Stevia for years and it’s sweeter than an other product. It is the best to me.

    Question: Is the product “Stevia” as purchased at supermarkets, the same as SweetLeaf Stevia? If not do I get SweetLeaf Stevia at natural food stores?

    Sweetleaf Stevia is safe (not like the stevia products by Coca-Cola, PepsiCo and others that contain unsafe fillers), once you become accustomed to using it and learn how to measure properly, it tastes great in beverages, cereals, and cooking–even baking. I make a great banana walnut bread with organic ingredients that’s more like a healthy cake and use Sweetleaf Stevia in place of sugar. No one can tell the difference in taste. I also make oatmeal/nut/coconut cookies using it and sweeten fresh or frozen organic fruits with it too. I would NEVER use another brand and certainly wouldn’t use aspartame (which can cause neurological problems) or Splenda (nothing natural about it because it goes through a chemical process–need I say more?)

    What does the FDA say about SweetLeaf Stevia tried stevia blend didn’t like the taste

    The FDA, which is in bed with Monsanto Chemical Company (it’s chief officer is a former Monsanto attorney and, later, direct employee), won’t acknowledge the health issues of GMOs. If you think the FDA cares about consumers’ health and safety, you’re deluded. That corrupt agency (as well as the USDA) exists ONLY to do the bidding of the big corporations that own them! Meanwhile, they try to stop anything healthy that doesn’t benefit Big Agribusiness, Chemical industry or Big Pharma with obscene profits.
