Do you know anything about the safety of Truvia? I see there are some mixed opinions as to whether it is safe or not. The FDA approved it in Dec right at the end of the Bush administration.

To answer you question "Do you know anything about the safety of Truvia?", in a word, no.

I found only three articles on my PubMed search all three written by scientists who work for the manufacturer of the product Coca-Cola and Cargil. So if you can find copies of the articles, you will have to read them with an analytical eye. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18555576?ordinalpos=2&itool=EntrezSystem2.PEntrez.Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_DefaultReportPanel.Pubmed_RVDocSum
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18554769?ordinalpos=3&itool=EntrezSystem2.PEntrez.Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_DefaultReportPanel.Pubmed_RVDocSum
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18717571?ordinalpos=1&itool=EntrezSystem2.PEntrez.Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_DefaultReportPanel.Pubmed_RVDocSum

So lacking independent pear reviewed articles and independent clinical studies, I can make no comment pro or con regarding the substance.

Thanks,

From the stevia plant a natural sweetener that has been used "for centuries" in third world countries. Big businesses such as Coca Cola paid big bucks to lobbyist in the 80's to prevent "Stevia" sweeteners from entering the market in the states, until they could get their own supply and a major share of the market , hence the end of the Bush admin. Do a google on stevia and check it out...
