It is found in most health food store or in the "health" dept. in your grocery store. I might even be in the baking dept. as there are a lot of stevia products being developed now. But I don't trust most of them as often they are highly processed.

It comes in different flavors (choc. vanilla)
Here's what I buy; works for all my sweetening needs.
It's NOT the same as sugar and can't be used straight across as a substitute in baking. There are other stevia products for that.
Anyway...

Put "stevia" in the search field and you will get more varieties of stevia products

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

It's clean if it is organic. Of course I don't know exactly what you are looking for in "clean". Coconut sugar is sugar plain and simple. It might not be as processed as a typical refined table sugar so that's a little plus. But as far as raising blood sugar its...well, a sugar. To me, the best sugar to use for sweetening is raw, unfiltered honey because it is the least refined and/or processed by human hands. But even honey is STILL sugar.

If you want to cut down on sugar try liquid organic stevia extract. 3 or 4 drops in your tea works great!

Does anyone know if coconut sugar is considered clean? just curious because I saw it at my grocery store and thought I'd try it out if it is clean. Thanks.
