Oh thank heavens, here I was trying to pull up stuff thinking they (whatever company) snuck Stevia in right under our noses when it was in fact Aspartame............Phew. Cookies for you though for trying to keep us all safe! Thanks
Thank goodness they are not the same I'm allergic to aspartame, I swell up and get the hives, now can you picture me slapping that gunk allover then coming out of the washroom 1/2 hour later red as a beet, swollen and full of hives.....not a pretty picture!!
stevia and aspartame are not the same things. i work in a pharmacy lab and we use stevial to sweeten medications for all ages. stevia is the safest and best sweetener to use in pharmaceutical preparations. i have been a compounder for 15 yrs. we deal with the most technologically best company in the compounding business. they have together over 100 yrs experience and are still learning. they do their own testing and there has been no bad side affects from stevia. even preemies can use the stevia and that comes from john hopkins hospital. don't panic until total proof is out. i am telling you stevia is safe. aspartamine has many side effects. it even says so on the labels that contain it. there is always a warning.
