I was looking for an alternative to sugar and stumbled upon Stevia, which contains the glycosides stevioside and rebaudioside A which can be used as a sweetener. The sweetener has a very pleasant taste, is about 250-400 times sweeter than sugar, is only very slightly bitter and can be used practically the same way you would use sugar. I use it in black coffee and protein shakes and it doesn't taste "off" in any way, I actually prefer the taste of stevioside to sugar. So what do government agencies like the FDA and EFSA and studies have to say about Stevia?
