    I really enjoyed the article and video! I’m gluten, corn, soy, and sugar free. Understanding the different types of stevia is so important to me. Thank you for all your research and expertise!

      You’re so welcome. This is why I thought it was important to talk about what are considered the ‘SAFE’ artificial sweeteners. They’re not so safe for everyone. And you have to be so careful which brand you choose. Bravo on your fantastically healthy diet choices. If only everyone could be so smart about going off gluten, corn, soy, and sugar!!

        I have shared your article with several of my friends. It’s amazing and unfortunate that GMO corn is being used in foods without our knowledge. Eating healthy has taken on a whole new meaning and quite a time consuming project!!

          It is very upsetting, to say the least, that people in the US have to be so vigilant about what’s in our food. It’s not like this in other countries because their government actually protects them, while our government takes payments from big biotechs like Monsanto who then allow their GMO frankenfood in our food supply.

    Good post however I was wondering if you could write a litte more on this subject?
    I’d be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit further. Appreciate it!
