Even with natural sweeteners,
we're back to reading labels.
You once were able to buy pure stevia, unadulterated in a powder form that required only a minuscule amount to sweeten. It is now commonly found with many brand names and usually in green packets that were meant to reflect its healthy nature.
Those establishments that offer the green packets of sweetener know they appeal to those who are health conscious, but their greed got the better of them. There is now stevia and then there is stevia. You really need to read carefully to see what you are actually getting.
Most stevia packets include extenders of some kind with the intent of making a sugar-like quantity available in each packet. The extenders are up for grabs and unregulated. Some you might want to reject.
This one has more dextrose and maltodextrin than stevia. Both added ingredients are as bad as sugar for your body. They are usually GMO sourced, can result in weight gain, cause the body to create insulin, have a high glycemic index and are dangerous for diabetics. In the case of maltodextrin, it can cause bloat, pain and affect gut health resulting in explosive, untrustworthy bowels.
Why is this happening?
It's cheap and you don't matter to those who use them.
