I image a good many of us use artificial sweeteners in our drinks, cooking, baking, etc., but does anyone really know if they're good for us?
I've heard/read many pros and cons and there it was in our local newspaper again this morning so it got me thinking about it again!
We've used Splenda for years, I figured it's a safe one. Then my son's wife, who is a naturalist when it comes to eating, told me last weekend that no artificail sweetener is good for you, to try Stevia. So I bought some and though it tastes the very same in my tea, I find it leaves a bit of an after-taste in my mouth but if it's healthier for me, I'll get used to it! Stevia is derived from a plant so is considered "natural".
Your thoughts on all sweeteners? Artificial or real ones?
