I had read about it a while ago and was just reminded of it's existence eailer today and the postives associated with it.Whilst i have also come across negatives such as causing cancer etc.

It's mainly as a sugar replacment for the whole family but mainly for my dad's whose a diabetic.

Can you share some thoughts on it if its positive or negative.

WEll, my knowledge is limited.
But I have some, and use it every now and then.
I tasted the dried leaves, and they are very sweet, yes.

I bought a small bottle of extract..It's very strong, so you don't need much.
But it also imparts some flavor..Goes well in Tea, but not in coffee..

You might look at what else is available. And ask to taste a sample before you buy it..There are probably some types, that don;t contain so much herbal aftertaste (best way I could describe it.)

I think it's worth looking into..

Thanks for the feedback

I realise that stevia is plant based and didn't realise they sold it in its natural state since I have only seen it in a powdered consistency
