Unfortunately, so much of it is speculation right now. Or it is studies put out funded by biased sources. If you ask me, everything should be done in moderation. Sure, Splenda may be dangerous at very high levels of consumption over an extended period of time, so we're better off not abusing it.

I heard it is about 98% pure, and the rest is not listed on the label. I heard sucralose is 98% pure and to actually get to sucralose, many steps are required and really scary. Stevia is the best choice IMO, and I will get on that as soon as my splenda is done. I only use it in oatmeal, so I guess I am not abusing it.

IMO, it's way better than aspartame in shakes. I wouldn't worry too much about it. Stevia has only one problem. FDA doesn't want companies to put it in foods and claim as a sweetener, but is allowed to be sold as a supplement safe and effctive.. Read a little about it. You might find it's history interesting.

Stevia is a really good sweetener. One of the best I believe. FDA is bunk just like their dirty grandma's trunk. Aspartame is thought to cause brain tumors and other such cancers. I'd rather hit up other sweeteners before getting a headache from aspartame. I drink a diet coke and get a headache. I joke not.

yea. stevia is great, but a little expensive. I think it has been in some of the whey I have purchased with a blend of sucralose and or xylitol or something. Tastes great though. You guys know of any gum that doesn't contain aspartame or sugar?

Go to a health food store and find some. I know they got it cuz I had it. It was strange tasting and nearly damned flavorless. But I'm sure theyve got a stevia gum at a health food store. Especially in the midwestern states they are eaten alive with health food stores.Originally Posted by Decca****
