en.wikipedia.org/wik…ute Stevia
Main article: Stevia


Stevia tablets as sold in health food stores in Germany (EU) in September 2010 (while Stevia is still technically "illegal"). Note the German description reads "Stevia is not a comestible [food] following current European Union regulations", while the French description simply says "Stevia" (which is legally sold as food in France).
Stevia has been widely used as a natural sweetener in South America for centuries and in Japan since 1970. Due to its unique characteristics of zero glycemic index and zero calories,[23] it is fast becoming popular in many other countries. In 1987, the FDA issued a ban on stevia because it had not been approved as a food additive.[24] After being repeatedly provided with a significant amount of scientific data proving that there was no side effect of using stevia as a sweetener from companies such as Cargill and Coca-Cola, the FDA gave a "no objection" approval for GRAS status to Truvia in December 2008. Truvia is a blend of rebiana and erythritol[25] (developed by Cargill and The Coca-Cola Company) and PureVia (developed by PepsiCo and the Whole Earth Sweetener Company, a subsidiary of Merisant), both of which use rebaudioside A derived from the Stevia plant.[26] This worries me. why cant Stevia be used on its own.

reasons for are copyright/patent by using an artificial sweetener. I've voted hot anyway but just for awareness i've posted the above.
