Here's some older info about stevia, and links at the bottom regarding some other natural sweeteners...https://www.healthyfellow.com/104/ste...ral-sweetener/

I only use xylitol toothpaste, and sometimes gum...never used it as a sugar substitute.

No matter what the deal -- a known toxic poison like Fluoride gathered from the industrial waste of Chinese aluminum plants or Xylitol gathered from living trees -- get real!

Default xylatol for me

Xylitol-- I haven't used anything else for the last 10 to 20 years.
I use one teaspoon in my morning coffee everyday and that is it.
I have no other form of 'sweetener' in the house. My study on
the subject and info from Dr Wright were the basis of my decision.

According to the physics/chemistry reports, ALL foods contain
excitotoxins--just some worse than others. I would avoid the use
of MSG and any known strong excitotoxin. But the only way to
avoid excitotoxins completely is simply to starve. I do not choose
to do that yet-- and I am 92 and looking for 93

I have read that stevia isn't bad, but for me it has an aftertaste
that I don't like.

I consider the best sweetener to be Lo Han Guo (also called Lo Han Kuo or simply Lo Han). It's made from a Chinese melon, constains all sorts of good amino acids, vitamins, and minerals, doesn't stimulate insulin production, doesn't taste bitter. You can find it in health food stores, sometimes combined with xylitol.
