100% Natural, No Calorie Sweetner
Posted 02 August 2006 - 07:22 AM
I was looking around on the web for something they could have that wouldn't do any harm to them and found something called stevia.
I'd heard of this from a couple of health-related books I've read so I decided to try it. It's all natural, comes from the leaves of a bush, has no calories, does not raise blood sugar and tastes really good!
I don't know if you can cook with it or not, but I did read somewhere that it is "heat tolerant" whatever that means
It's produced by several different companies and you can usually find it in the health food section of larger grocery stores like Kroger or at natural food stores. It costs about the same as Splenda or Equal or those other things.
I've been putting it in my tea and it's really good.
Just thought I'd pass it on.

I meant to look for something similar for my Mum, she had an intolerance of sugar when I was a kid and got quite ill, well she was in hospital last week after a sudden re-occurence and we were looking out for a fruit sugar product that we used to get for her. This looks great and I will pass it on.... and as an added bonus no calories!
gotta love HR

A couple of other resources you might find helpful for your family are David Mendosa's site and the Diabetes Mine blog.

My mom was diagnosed about 6 years ago, and my dad just 8 months ago ... so I imagine it's in my future down the road a piece too. I've got such an addiction to ice cream (as my beltline can attest to) that it will be a crisis if / when it happens. (one of a myriad of reasons I won't take Karon's little test posted earlier, lol).

"No Sugar or Artificial Sweeteners.
Replace with stevia root, raw honey, molasses, brown rice syrup,
beet sugar and natural fruit sweeteners. You may use chromium picolinate
(200 mcg) for sugar cravings.. "
When Teresa T. Fung and colleagues at Simmons College in Boston studied 43,000
men for about 12 years, the researchers found that men who ate whole grains
were less likely to develop type 2 diabetes than those who ate refined grains
(typically cookies, cakes, doughnuts and pasta). Scientists speculate that this
protective effect may occur because whole grains decrease blood levels of glucose
and trigger the secretion of less insulin than processed foods.
