  • Most "White Sugar" produced in the US from US crops is made for beet sugar. - 10/1/2008 9:41:52 AM
  • Stevia is great, and natural. Artificial sweetners are not intended for our bodies and cause great harm. - 10/1/2008 6:14:33 AM
  • What about beet sugar? I'm living overseas right now and while it is true that most sugars in Western countries and especially in the States are made from cane, in Eastern Europe and a number of other places (including a lot of Western Europe) sugar is frequently made from sugar beets. - 10/1/2008 2:15:15 AM

    Please do an artical about Stevia. It is the one my doctor reccomends, since I am a diabetic, but I would like a second opinion. I do use it, but we have been hearing about the Agave nector. Could you tell me the difference between them. - 10/1/2008 12:29:09 AM

    Your article was incomplete. I've been using equal or it's generic counter part aspartame for about 20 yrs. I feel fine but would have liked to have seen a better conclusion. Please don't leave it in the air for up until now I've been a 100% fan! Thanks, CSR - 9/30/2008 11:07:22 PM

    I was also surprised that there was nothing in your article about Stevia. I'd be interested to know how it stacked up nutritionally with some of the other sweeteners. Thanks for the article. - 9/30/2008 9:38:37 PM

  • Great article; very informative. We've been using stevia for about a year and we love it, especially in cold drinks. Thanks again for all the great info! - 9/30/2008 8:40:46 PM

  • I too like Stevia. I love the Vanilla Creme liquid in my iced coffee.
    Even in the cold of winter, I will enjoy an tall glass of iced coffee with Vanilla Creme.
    Usually 6-8 drops will do it.

    Stevia is the ultimate! All natural, no calorie, doesn't spike the blood sugar. Very surprised you did not include it in your all natural sweetener article. - 9/30/2008 7:51:38 PM

    I was really suprised you left out STEVIA. It is a great natural sweetener with out the blood-sugar spike of sugar. I has no artificial stuff so is much better for you. It can be pricey, but you don't need to use much at all. - 9/30/2008 5:43:47 PM
  • I was a little surprised that there was nothing about Stevia. It's my go-to sweetener for a lot of things, especially iced tea.

    I also like maple syrup and brown rice syrup. They don't give me the rush that refined sugar does. - 9/30/2008 3:40:15 PM
  • Stevia is my sweetener. I LOVE it. Not the powdered form, I use the liquid. It doesn't affect your blood sugar and tastes great in my tea!!! - 9/30/2008 3:25:14 PM
  • Xylitol is discuss in our Sugar Alcohols article (see related content). - 9/30/2008 2:03:00 PM
