Great deal, but ask yourself why are they having to reduce the price? Is it because of all the bad press over the health issues with this product. Google it to find out more. I tied it in Jan and it triggered a bad gastronomical reaction which sent me to the doctors who put me on anti acid PPI to clear. Know the risks then you can make an informed decision.

The offer itself is good; few months back they were too expensive at original price. But having read research articles on them, I realised there are no real long term studies on them so not really worth the risk! However, some people experience no side effects and swear by them, so like 0049ner said:

Stevia itself is supposedly ok. It is all the binders and rubbish it is mixed with in this and Truvia that seem to cause digestive upsets. I have been trying Agave nectar in my porridge to avoid a sugar rush and that has been absolutely fine.
A cheap lower GI alternative to sugar is fructose, if you want to avoid chemicals. A 250g bag of Tate & Lyle fruit sugar will set you back a measly 78p at Tesco or Asda.



"Stevia itself is supposedly ok. It is all the binders and rubbish it is mixed with in this and Truvia that seem to cause digestive upsets."

Pure Stevia has been used for years in Japan, German, and other countries as a sugar alternative/slimming aid
Pure Stevia is suppose to aid digestion and have other health benefits
Be a little bit suspicious of derogate research from the US, and wonder who's benefiting from it and who's paying for it

it tastes awful truvia is so much better

I am sure that pure stevia has been found to be ok. The problems seem to be from the stuff added to it. You can't patent pure stevia any more than you can patent grass, air or apples so you need to adulterate it to make a product to market. Truvia, for example, has Erythrit, a polyol, which is suspected of causing the stomach upsets. Furthermore, Truvia does not contain pure stevia, but Rebiana, a stevia extract but altered in some way so that Truvia can be patented.

It's actually better than £1.99 as the packs in my local have try me for free on them via paypal, fill the form online and they will credit your paypal account with £3.99 within 28 days, so technically money for nothing.
