Everyone is talking about SPLENDA and about AGAVE, so I went to my local Whole Foods store yesterday and investigated.
Since they don't carry artificial sweeteners at all (!), they do have substitutes that are natural.
I will copy what it says on the back of the baggy
STEVIA - 100% natural (Herb and vegetable extracts)
NO - saccharin
artificial sweeteners of any kind
Ingredients: Fiber, Stevia Leaf Extract
STEVIA PLUS - FIBER NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENT
Less than 1 Calorie and 1/2 g of Carbohydrates per serving.
ALSO, I foun AGAVE Nectar for $2.69 (small bottle)
LOW-CARB BARS - our Whole Foods store carries them. Only 2g of carbohidrates
If anyone has questions or suggestions, bring it on!
