    Hi i’ve been hunting through the supermarkets here in the UK looking for a suitable Stevia but all i can find is something called

    Canderel Green with Stevia Extract – Ingredients: Maltodextrin, Sweetener: Steviol Glycosides, Natural Flavourings which i’m guessing is a no no!

    Or Pure Via with Stevia Extract which has the same ingredients as above.

    I was wondering if anyone in the UK has been able to find a suitable Stevia anywhere or is this going to be an order from the internet only!?

    I’ve seen several posts on here talking about Xylitol and wondered if any of these products would be suitable?

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Xylitol-UK-Sugar-natural-sweetner/dp/B002FOL16G/ref=sr_1_30?ie=UTF8&qid=1332942795&sr=8-30

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Now-Foods-Healthy-Xylitol-454/dp/B0014UFXGG/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1332943571&sr=8-5

    They both say they are 100% pure Xylitol

    Any help would be great
    Thanks

    Xylitol is an OK replacement for stevia if you can’t find stevia without maltodextrin. You are correct in that the maltodextrin can feed candida, so if possible, try to find a product without maltodextrin.

    I use a stevia product called steviva if you can find it.

    The larger supermarkets should be stocking this by now:

    I’ve found it at Sainsburys. Try the bigger branches if possible – there’s more chance that they’ll have it.

    Truvia also has something else in it, its too high in carbs for Candida Diet imo. I buy Now Foods stevia on ebay from someone like LuxeBC, they also have a website http://www.luxebc.com

    I wouldn’t use truvia just because it says “natural flavors.” What the hell is this and shouldn’t it be naturally flavored without an ingredient?

    Erythritol is an additive that is unnecessary as well.

    oops maybe not Truvia then..

    ..but hang on, I’m confused!

    I’m sure I’ve seen this recommended by none other than Able. Have I got the wrong product or is it just a question of personal preference? I admit the carb content is high, although I guess it depends how much you use. I guess I’d also prefer something with less additives too given the choice.

    Thanks for the link benc. They seem to have quite a good selection.

    I use “Better Stevia” from Now Foods. It only has 1 ingredient, Certified Organic Stevia Extract Powder.

    Sweetleaf is pretty good, I believe I’ve tried it myself.

    The main thing they mention that is good is no additives.
