Why dont you use stevia instead of sugar/honey as your sweetener?

>0 calories
>Natural and comes from the leaves of a plant
>Doesnt spike blood sugar level and cause diabetes
>Not a artificial sweetener toxin like aspartame and splenda that gives you cancer

Whats your excuse? Its literally perfect I use it in all my beverages in my baking on top of fruits etc
>>
aspartame is superior.
>>
2017 is the year of palm sugar.

Why?

>literally consuming a man made neurotoxin

stevia has no effect on the body you just piss it out. not one negative effect can be found if you do your research. however aspartame and splenda and other artificial sweeteners you can find health risks if you search
>>
>>8513970

Because I said so.
>>
>>8513979
Ok sounds like a good plan desu senpai
>>
>>8513974
I put aspartame on everything. if It was bad then I'd be sick? But I'm not. I go through pounds of the stuff. The body metabolizes aspartame. it is not poisonous.
>>
I don't use any additional sweeteners. Also you're a fucking retard.

>if It was bad then I'd be sick?

you are slowly degenerating yourself over years of time when you use chemicals in your food

you dont get sick by using aspartame one time

it does not get metabolized by the body

stevia extract is almost like you steeping a leaf in your drink it is a much safer bet on your body

seriously i would consider giving up aspartame for stevia

Use date sugar or cinnamon instead of that meme shit which doesnt even have the cleanest history

tastes like shit sorry

Because I get enough estrogen in literally everything I buy without consuming more of it to replace something I barely use anyway.

all memes

its sweet and tastes great to me

doesnt have any esstrogen

and doesnt raise blood sugar and cause diabetes which date sugar and palm sugar and coconut sugar all do exactly the same as real sugar

got any more memes?
>>
>>8514072
Alright, so the estrogen bit is a meme? There's some hormonal shit going on, as it's been shown to have contraceptive effects in rats.

And of course there's the problem that it doesn't raise blood sugar; it fucking plummets it. They memes, too?
>>
>>8513974
You can find evidence for everything on Earth being bad for you. Kill yourself you literal retard.
>>
>>8514095
>as it's been shown to have contraceptive effects in rats.

temporarily when used at 10,000x any human will ever consume

nice try

> that it doesn't raise blood sugar; it fucking plummets it

thats a health benefit. in this society with all this sugar laden foods
>>
>>8513959

I'm not fat. I have self control. I eat things in moderation. Did I mention I'm not fat?
>>
>>8513959
I'm not fat, so I don't crave sugar and am entirely uninterested in a substitute which you might use for a crutch for awhile and then go back to your old fatfuck ways.

Just stop eating and craving garbage please, and help yourself not look so fucking embarrassing, you fatfuck.
>>
>>8514115
>>8514162
hurr look at me im so healthy

maybe you would be more healthy if you eliminated sugar! nerds
>>
>>8514108
>That's a health benefit

Not if you're using it as a full replacement for sugar like you're recommending, and especially with major companies picking up on the trend and deciding whether to roll out products featuring it instead of sugar (Hi, Coke and Pepsi), this is lining up to be a repeat of the gluten-free craze, but with liver damage.
>>
>>8514184
you dont need any added sugar in the diet

all food contains natural sugar or carbohydrates which get converted to sugar

the amount in your food is sufficient

using stevia in the world with massive abundance of food you will never go too low in blood sugar

the rise of stevia in products is a wonderful thing and will save many lives

As I said, I can eat things in moderation. That's why I'm not a fat fuck. If I want something sweet, I want it to taste good. I don't want it to taste like your poorly wiped herpes riddled flaccid faggot asshole.

>hurr look at me, I'm fat but I eat artificial sweetener so you know it's muh genetics

Pick one

>>8514072
No one cares you fucking loser. Stop shilling your garbage here, fatso.
>>
>>8513959
Because if I wanted sugar, I'd use sugar, not something that vaguely reminds me of sugar

But I don't want sugar, so... why would I want something that vaguely reminds me of sugar?
>>
it costs a lot and tastes like fucking TRASH GARBAGE
>>
>>8513959
I recently compared packets of Sucralose (Splenda), Saccharin (Sweet 'N Low), and regular sugar all side by side on a plate a few weeks ago because I was curious and all the artificial sweeteners have this bitter/metallic taste to them that quickly sets in after the sweetness subsides (saccharin was vastly better at it than sucralose though).

I haven't tried Stevia, Aspartame (Equal), or any others though so they might be different. It's somewhat funny how we color code sweeteners by their chemical makeup in the US.
>>
Stevia is fucking disgusting
Might as well grind up children's Tylenol to sweeten your shit with
>>
>>8514313

stevia's all taste very different you have to find a brand that tastes good

Yeah... Chemicals.... Like that dihydrogen monoxide stuff

>it does not get metabolized by the body

There's plenty of leaves that will poison the fuck out of you

Stevia will take you to another dimension of understanding.

I love stevia. Not only does it taste fucking disgusting, it also has this vile, bitter aftertaste that lingers for several minutes. I get all the experience of chewing on some leaf that I found on the ground with none of the hassle.
>>
>>8515065
also enjoy healthier teeth
just don't hyper sweeten everything amerifats and you'll be fine!

I will try almost any wanky hipster soda I come across at least once, unless it is sweetened with stevia because then I know it'll taste nasty.
>>
>>8514184
A human doesn't need any of the sugar sources you could use a sweetener to replace. Eat a nice fibrous fruit twice a day. Congratulations, you made your sugar quota.

All the processed food stuffed full of syrup is the shit killing people. Even with no evidence of improvement, we could not be doing worse.
>>
>>8513959
It tastes like shit, if you want something to be sweet use regular sugar, the trick is not to overdo it, it's not that hard, it just takes a bit of self control which evidently you don't have if you have to use stevia or any artificial sweeteners to keep down your calorie intake

Enjoy your medicine tasting meme sweetener though.
>>
>>8515533
All food is processed you fucking retard.

I like Stevia but Sugar still tastes better.
Scientists still need to find a better and safer alternative to Aspartame.

Stevia is alright but I prefer erythritol. Stevia really tends to get bitter if you want to make something actually sweet tasting like hot chocolate or desserts or whatever.
>>
>>8513959
>Why dont you use stevia instead of sugar/honey as your sweetener?

Because I use monkfruit extract OR coconut sugar. Nothing wrong with stevia, really, I just don't like it's taste. Rather use monkfruit or coconut sugar.

all that wrong information about sweetener side effects

aspartame has been so heavily studied
if you give aspartame to people and they dont know they are drinking it, they wont have headaches

it's the same shit as MSG
>>
>>8515545
A potato plucked from the ground is not processed, you drooling life reject. I shouldn't need to explain the difference between preparing food for consumption and processing food for taste and shelf-life.
>>
>>8513959
Every time i try stevia the sweetness is there but then it ends up making what in drinking taste like lawn clippings so i'd rather use splenda.
>>
>>8514885
It does though, you fucking mongoloid. Carbohydrates are one of the most basic macronutrients on the Earth, everything from bacteria and plants to elephants and lions rely on it.
>>
>>8517113
not the same guy but if one were to be pedantic you'd still claim that all pickled, frozen, dried, smoked, fermented or similarly preserved foods are unhealthy.
>>
>>8515661
>safer
Literally where is there any evidence that aspartame is legitimately bad for you at normal levels of consumption?
>>
>>8518108
Some people say that Aspartame gives them headaches, but it could be something like this >>8517106
