    With the recent post about inulin does anyone know of a stevia without it? My stevia sweetleaf from iherb has inulin in it.

    Thanks!

    inulin is just a fiber found in many vegetables. i think it’s fine to have some of it, the point of that post was to not take additional inulin only supplements.

    I generally wouldn’t worry about it because you don’t use a ton of it, right?

    Truvia doesn’t contain Dextrose neither Maltodextrin.

    You can also start weaning yourself off of stevia a bit if you’re concerned. I was putting it in a lot of things and now I barely use it. If I do add it to anything, I use the green herb itself, not the extract (it’s not as sweet).

    Erythritol doesn’t feed yeast. The other Truvia ingredient is Stevia Leaf Extract. It is totally safe during an intestinal fungal overgrowth.

    I had been told that Erythritol was bad for yeast, as well as Xylitol…So much conflicting information..

    Kag, Avoid Xylitol–it affects the adherence of your good bacteria. It always slightly upset my gut and my wife’s gut(she has no health concerns)

    Xylitol does have some anti-fungal activity(I’ve experienced this), but i think it does have anti-(good)bacterial activity as well. Thus making it counter productive.

    Erythritol- can toy with blood insulin causing cravings, any sweetener can have that affect. Sweeteners are not recommended for people that have blood insulin issues.

    Many report side effects with Erythritol: (Erythritol is the main ingredient of Truvia)

    Sweeteners in general:

    (When the body senses sweet it will lower insulin in preparation for glucose to be coming in. Low calorie sweeteners have no substantial glucose therefore tricking the body in thinking that there is a good amount of glucose coming into the body. So this causes the body to crave sugar/glucose to make up for the low insulin levels.)

    I rarely do any kind of sweeteners any more because they seem to affect my insulin/cravings. Sweeteners make me lethargic, but some are more sensitive than others.

    Sugar Alcohols Don’t feed candida.

    It is hard to find a sweetener with low or not incidence during an intestinal fungal infection.

    Truvia is one of the few that is safe. I have used it without any side effect. In fact, it is most of the time sold out in the supermarket I buy it. So, I assume there are many people consuming it.

    Anyway, Truvia is safer than other brands that mix Stevia with Inulin. Inulin is a growing factor for yeast but sugar alcohols no.

    In fact, Xylitol and Erythritol enhance the fungicidal activity of some antifungal compounds against candida albicans.

    Abstract
    OBJECTIVE:
    The purpose of this study was to evaluate if the sugar alcohols erythritol, xylitol and sorbitol enhance the fungicidal effect of benzethonium chloride (BTC) toward in vitro candidal biofilms.
    METHODS:
    An in vitroCandida albicans biofilm was formed on a plastic coverslip coated with type I collagen. The enhancement of the fungicidal effect was evaluated using microbial assay after treating the biofilm with the test solutions (sugar alcohols: erythritol, xylitol, and sorbitol, each containing BTC solution).
    RESULTS:
    No fungicidal effect was observed with sugar alcohols without BTC. The fungicidal effect of erythritol-containing BTC increased with the erythritol concentration. Further, the level of enhancement of erythritol was the highest in three sugar alcohols.
    CONCLUSION:
    Sugar alcohols, especially erythritol, enhanced the fungicidal effect of BTC toward in vitro candidal biofilms.

    I guess at this point, with all of this conflicting information, it feels like…why bother risking any of it? It’s not hard to avoid sugar alcohols OR stevia and you get used to things unsweetened pretty quickly.

    Also, Jorge, just because something is sold out doesn’t mean anything about it’s quality or health benefits…did you see what happened when Twinkies went out of production??!!
