Stevia in the Raw...one of the worst sweetners on HCG????

Rate this Entry
Hmm..just read a artical out on the home page that Stevia "in the Raw" is one of the worst sweetners you can use on HCG...Does anyone know if that is true? I have been using it with no problems...just curious and a little confused. If someone can shed some light on this I would appreciate it.

Thanks

    If I remember correctly, I think it has additives like maltodextrin which is not allowed on P2. I use stevia during P2 just fine. Make sure to read the labels to make sure it is ONLY stevia.

    and where do I get just "Stevia"? Ughhhh...see you learn something new every day. Guess it's a good thing I didn't buy a bunch of it. I will have to check at my health food store when I get the chance

    I like the Liquid, it works well with everything. You can even get different flavors which help with coffee.

    Dextrose is a sugar so Stevia in the raw has a mixture of stevia and sugar. Sweat leaf is the best brand of powdered stevia to use and you can get it in a health food store or check for it online. It is sad but even on what you think are good products you have to read the ingredients and see what else is in there. They put other things in because of cost or to make it taste better.

    I started day 1 of VLCD today and I almost made the same mistake with the Stevia in the Raw. For some reason, I decided to look at the box this morning and saw it contained "less than 1 gram of sugars". When I saw that I thought to myself, that's not good because it's NO sugars allowed on protocol, so I looked it up and saw a few postings about it and not to use it. I found the powder and flavored drops on Amazon and ordered them this morning. Till it arrives, I'm learning to like green tea just by itself, but honestly miss my coffee and can't wait to have a cup with the flavored liquid stevia. Order some or maybe your local health food store has it. You'll be ok!
