Welcome, joyisplaying. Would you want to find the Introduce Yourself board & make a new thread to tell us about yourself & how you manage your diabetes? Looking forward to getting better acquainted! :wave:I have done the same thing. I use to use alot of sweetener in everything. I now have stopped because I want less man made garbage in my body. You can't always get rid of it all because it's in everything but I to limit as much as I can.
If everyone could grow it, I'd have a stevia ranch by now!in Japan they have been using stevia (not an artificial sweetener) to sweeten sodas for ages now...its only just been allowed in Australia as an additive...still not as a sweetener...I figure there is a money angle...or else why wouldn't they ? Ah its a plant anyone could grow lol...no profit in that!
