A good friend of mine has done plenty of research on artifical sweeteners (or even natural sweeteners) her blog is http://thejoyofcleaneating.com
She has informed me that even Truvia/Stevia is not 'clean', that your body processes the same way as sugar so can cause the same insulin problems sugar does. I'm bummed b/c I really like Truvia.
She tells me that only local organic honey, maple, agave (if organic) and Sucanat are the only 'clean' sweeteners we should use. Oh and date sugar I think she said.
Her blog has alot of useful information and although she's not a medical professional or an expert, she does a TON of research before coming to her conclusions.
