With all the variations of sweeteners out there, sugar, honey, the altered corn sweeteners, plus all the manmade chemical-based ones like sucralose, saccarhin, and aspertame, it can be difficult to find something to take care of a sweets craving, and avoid all the side effects. The best route to take comes from the Andes and has been cultivated there since the days of the Inca, Nazca, and Moche Indians. It’s a little flower that thrives in these mountains, and creates a nectar that is ten times sweeter than sugar, safe for diabetics, and even provides fiber. Take a chance on Stevia someday, and you might finally find that sweet fix you’ve been looking for. You can buy stevia at most supermarkets, and it is found in the baking goods section of the store. There are online stores that feature stevia, like http://www.stevia.com, and http://truvia.com. Try a packet in your tea some time, and you’ll never go back to the pink, blue, or yellow stuff.
