What is in the stevia? Better yet, what is the stevia in. Pure stevia powder is like a 16th of a teaspoon or smaller in size. If it's in packets, there is a lot more of something else with it.

Re-examining the KAL brand stevia, it's more like a 32nd of a teaspoon per serving.

Looking further, other ingredients used to say none, now it says maltodextrin. What????

If I'm looking at the right thing, ingredients read dextrose with maltodextrin, rebiana. Sounds like stevia is the minority member.

Nice job on the research! I am going to stop using it for the next few days and see if I notice a difference! Thank you!
