I was just searching for Stevia on the forum and I noticed a post titled ‘Inulin !!! Stop taking it !!!’ where you say that Yucca is on the strict diet. I don’t see it on there now – was it removed for a specific reason?
Also, could you tell me why stevia is ok – doesn’t any sweetener just break down to glucose or fructose eventually? Is it something you should limit while on the diet?August 8, 2013 at 8:14 am #108768

Even though yucca root is an excellent prebiotic, it also contains some starch. Some of the members have written to me about experiencing a few symptoms returning after eating a few servings of cooked yucca root, so because of this, I prefer to recommend yucca root herbs in capsule form.
You can use Truvia if Stevia makes you nervous. But if you can find a stevia sweetener that contains only stevia leaf extract, then there shouldn’t be a problem. Truvia contains erythritol which doesn’t feed yeast and stevia leaf extract, which as I’ve already mentioned shouldn’t be a problem. Most of the members use Stevia or Truvia to a degree, but you really shouldn’t overeat anything that’s manmade, even if it’s on the diet.
By the way, stevia isn’t sucrose, fructose, or lactose which means it’s not a form of sugar, it’s an herb.

sweet leaf makes a potent form of the stevia which is the extract only in powder form. They also make a regular one with inulin as well.
I personally haven’t noticed any detriment with inulin.
