Erythritol vs Stevia Sweetener
Erythritol vs Stevia Sweetener is a really important question. There is no comparison.
Erythritol is FAKE, ARTIFICIAL, not close to nature.
Stevia is from a PLANT and should be natural (will be if you can find the right Stevia Sweetener that has not been processed to death!).
Avoid white powder stevia. This has been processed way too much! Health food stores do have Stevia in liquid form and it could be close to nature, but check your labels since the formulas are often mixed with Erythritol, which you don’t want in your sweetener.
If you can find Monk Fruit without Erythritol, that can also be a natural healthy sweetener rather than an artificial sweetener.

Erithritol vs Stevia Sweetener ~ when used as a sweetener, Erythritol levels are typically more than 1,000-fold greater than levels found naturally in foods. Erythritol is in an ingredient category called “sugar alcohols,” which are not required to be listed individually on Nutrition Facts labels.

When you purchase any sweetener, read the ingredients.
Erythritol side effects typically include digestive problems and diarrhea. It may also cause bloating, cramps, and gas. Additionally, erythritol and other sugar alcohols frequently result in more water in the intestines, causing diarrhea. Nausea and headaches may occur.
Erythritol is a nonnutritive sweetener (NNS) or artificial sweetener used as a sugar substitute.
A new study finds a link between Erythritol – a common artificial sweetener also used as a filler in Stevia and Monk Fruit sweeteners and some keto products – and risk of harm to the heart and blood vessels, including clotting, stroke, heart attack and even death.
The non-nutritive sweetener, Erythritol, induces platelet activation and aggregation and may promote clot formation in people at high cardiovascular risk.

Erythritol vs Stevia Sweetener
~ Truvia Artificial Sweetener
Truvia sweetener is made from about 99.5 Erythritol (a sugar alcohol), and 0.5% Rebiana, an extract from the Stevia plant (but not at all the same thing as stevia). Cargill was forced to settle a class action lawsuit for labeling Truvia as ‘natural’.

Dr. Tei Fu Chen, Sunrider International and Stevia
Over 25 years ago — Before anyone in the United States was using Stevia in their foods, in 1995, it was actually the Sunrider company which successfully petitioned the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to lift the import alert on the extract of Stevia leaves, thereby clearing the way for the use of Stevia as a dietary supplement in the United States. Now huge companies add Stevia to their products even though it is not made with the quality of Sunrider.
