Sell Stevia!

by snuvidkid » Jul 7th, '07, 14:37

It would be awesome if you guys could start selling stevia so we could sweeten our teas with it without having to go to another site to purchase it. Of course you would have to advertise it as a dietary suppliment rather than a sweetener (thanks to the FDA). It's completely natural and safe and has been used for hundreds of years with no known side effects and has hundreds of times the sweetness of sugar. Not to mention it's safe for diabetics or anyone who wants to lower their sugar intake because it doesn't affect blood sugar and is non-caloric. Here's a site you may wish to look at. http://www.wonderlabs.com/newshowitems. ... &offset=10

Stevita brand seems to be the most popular. I ordered the 16oz spoonable powder. It should last a really long time since it take such a small amount (1//4 a teaspoon for me) to sweeten just one cup. In the longrun it would be cheaper than buying sugar or honey all the time.

On a personal note, it's done good for me because my college nurse told me I have Reynauds where my hands can get cold really easy, but at night they would swell and sometimes would be swollen so much that it would be hard to even open a bottle of water. Since stevia has allowed me to greatly lower my sugar intake (I used to flavor my tea with small amounts of honey), my hands have not been swelling at night since I started using it.

...NONE... 8)

You forgot a poll option for those whose preference is no sweetener at all.

I guess this is sort of not the point, seeing as your sort of petitioning Adagio to add Stevia to their lineup...but Dragonwater sells the full leaf (not a branded powder or liquid extract). A lot of people toss a pinch or so of this in with whatever tea they are brewing and seem to like the results.

Bizarrely enough, you can find their stevia under their yerba mate section. Why, I do not know.

I know this is an old post...but I'd also like to see agave nectar/syrup. I currently have to order it from a different whole food vendors (I don't live in a big enough city to have that kind of market).

I think there is something wrong with the tea if there is a need for a sweetener.

I hate that I use Splenda

by johnoed » Feb 19th, '09, 06:55

I hate that I use Splenda but I found that I was putting in to much sugar. I know a true purest wouldn't add anything as the poll shows but I do like my Earl Gray with a bit of sweet and milk. To be exact I don't add anything to green tea.

The ones I've seen here just put it with the sugar.
