Re: How bad are they? (Artificial Sweeteners)

It goes on to say that Natural sweeteners should be used. They list these as Agave Nectar, fruit, honey (raw), maple sugar, maple syrup, molasses, rapadura, stevia, sucanat, and xylitol.

Just wanted to share, because I thought it was pretty interesting reading about it.
stevia is a no-no..especially while pregnant. The FDA are finding out that it cause reproductive problems...(nice to know since I've been using it forever) I've been researching all this crap lately since I am not allowed to have sugar while on blood thinners..

as far as artificial sweeteners are concerned my maternal/fetal medicine doc told me to limit to 2-3 servings PER DAY.
