Not all Stevia is the same
It should be noted that the processing of Stevia and the type of end product can vary greatly from manufacturer to manufacturer, so it is advisable to read product labels carefully to understand what type of Stevia powder is contained in a particular product.
Many Stevia Extracts are unfortunately offered with fillers such as dextrose, fructose or even synthetic sweeteners, such as aspartame (E 951), cyclamate (E 952) or sucralose (E 955). You can often recognise these products by their low price and they have little to do with Stevia and are usually offered on Amazon or Ebay.
