Sugars vs substitutes
Friday, November 04, 2011
I have a question...I have switched to a product called Stevia in the Raw.....it is a brand just like Truvia is a brand. But Stevia in the Raw I noticed has Dextrose in it. I finally read the ingredients due to a recent conversion.
So is Stevia in the Raw really any better than regular table sugar? And which ever the answer may be...what is the explanation that lie behind the answer? I have tried just regular Stevia but hate the bitter taste. Where as the brand Stevia in the Raw tastes more like sugar which I assume is due to the Dextrose? I made the switch about 2 years ago but now am curious if I really made a good choice or did I just switch from one bad choice to another?
Am I better off using regular sugar or the Stevia with Dextrose?
