I remember when "everyone" used Sweet-N-Low in the pretty pink packet, and it was perfectly OK. Now that we've learned that aspartame has some negative health consequences, many people have been scaling back on its use. (With that said, it is still offered at restaurants, and is included in many "sugar free" foods).
I am at high-risk for diabetes, and my mother now has pre-diabetes. I know many people are different, but with my health history, "real" sugar is actually more dangerous for me than "artificial sugar".
Can you help me determine which artificial sweetener is the best? Stevia is one of the newest ones, but there are some other similar-sounding sweeteners. Are these all the same? What are the other ingredients?
