    Lol, I like.

    but I think (b4 we all get ahead of ourselves) prolonged use of anything is going to cause problems physically and mentally.

    if you really like your Pepsi and you don't like the AS don't drink it but if you keep drinking Pepsi and you have a can a day, you're going the right way to getting fat.

    If you are eating more AND consuming unnecessary sugar, you'll develop the same gut issues, if not, more.

    Again, it comes down to evidence. Artificial sweeteners are widely studied with no ill effects. I think the people opposing them either don't understand they benefits of swapping out sugar or are hippies who still believe in chem-trails and everything natural is better.
    Yep artificial sweeteners as some of the most studied things we ever put in our mouth. Natural doesn't mean something is healthy. Cyanide and arsenic are natural.

    i was talking about the granulated form.
    How it passes for a sweetener had me befuddled. It had the reverse effect. Give me aspartame anyday. ☺

    If you think the granulated form is bitter, try the liquid. Almost has a licorice taste.

    Stevia seems to work best when combined with real sugar. For example Coke Life or stevia sweetened chocolate with half the sugar content.

    The asian chicks in the lab with the stoopid looking hairnets say 30/70 is the ratio, 30% stevia and 70% liquid sugar.
    30% is big enough to brag as advertising and small enough to hide the bitterness with the other 70% of sugar.

    I've been using stevia for years now, the one I buy from iHerb, it has zero bitterness and is very sweet indeed. I buy 1000 sachets at a time. As a carrier of stevia, you get about 1g of maltodextrin with it as well, which I have no problem with.

    All the stevia you buy here in Oz is bitter and not sweet, unlike what I've posted above.

    The whey powder I purchase from Bulknutrients is sweetened with Sucralose, which I'm fine with as well. I believe if your overall eating is good, then even a small amount of poison won't kill you..., speaking of poison, I was having that "poison" in the form of cyanide on a daily basis in very small amount, coming from juicing or pulverising a whole lemon or a whole apple for example. So a little poison is good, just like a little bit of bacteria (from the soil left on a carrot or similar) is also fine with me. Vegans can learn something from that, as that's how one can have access to vitamin B12 if one chooses to go zero animal products as they do.

    Thanks @Fadi;
    I'm glad someone agrees about Stevia being bitter. Seems quite a few people have been brainwashed about Stevia being sweet.
