hi. I can see this is an old, thread with occasional more recent posts. I tried splenda. Was feeling quite sick. Finally after several days of feeling sick I googled the symptoms and the word splenda. I found others reporting the same symptoms. I stopped and became non symptomatic
i do have a lot of trouble with sugar alcohols such as manitol,sorbitol, zylatol etc. So i stay away from any sweetner that has this in it. I tried truvia. But when I got it home I noticed it looked nothing like the stevia I buy at health food stores. I read further on it and decided it was not for me.
So bottom line for me is that if I want low calorie with no GI system side effects I have to go with pure stevia. Kal made a great one. But then they started adding maltodextrin ( a non caking agent) to it. I do not think that is a safe ingredient. Altthough it is present in many stevias that are on the market. Since KAL added that ingredient, I have been on a search for a decent tasting stevia to use in my hot chocolate. So far, no substitute for the KAL. But UPS has been busy delivering different stevias as I continue my search. Onward.
The food craving monster never rests long. Been up and down all my life. Right now I weigh about a hundred pounds less than my highest. My goal is to stop the decades of yoyo. To silence the absolutly exhausing inner cravings which persist even in maintence.
