Sometimes it’s difficult to find a Stevia brand without harmful ingredients. The alcohol is not safe in the liquid extract; remember in our PI conversation I was talking about the various toxins that the Candida release; alcohol is one of those toxins, in fact, this is often the reason for the ‘fuzzy’ mind syndrome that a lot of Candida sufferers experience.
Truvia is on the strict diet, so ry to find this sweetener instead. Stevia is used to make this brand, but normally Truvia doesn’t contain dangerous ingredients. Truvia may contain either Xylitol or Erythiritol but these two sugar alcohols are not the same as the alcohol used for extracting herbs such as the stevia plant into a liquid form and are acceptable for a Candida treatment.
You can usually find Truvia in grocery stores along with other sugar products.
It truly is difficult to find a Stevia that’s not “poisoned” with chemicals. I had a feeling the alcohol in the Stevia wasn’t safe, thank goodness I asked on here to confirm! I will look for Truvia tomorrow, but if I don’t find it then it’s not the end of the world either, will just have to go without sugar then.
It’s really important to read labels carefully while shopping.
