I have been exploring what stevia to purchase. But quite honestly, I’ve never felt good about the perfectly white, flowable, processed stevia products out there.
When I was on a stock-your-pantry preparedness effort several (over 5) years ago, I bought 4 Trader Joe’s Pure Stevias. I remember thinking at the time that they were really expensive, but, hey, if things got bad and we couldn’t get things at the store, at least we had our sweetener!
What I found was that I really, really liked using it! Slowly, over time, I kept thinking about having more and MORE, and if I didn’t get to have it, I craved (felt addicted to) the stuff. I looked for things to eat to add it to even though I wasn’t hungry! Yikes!
But here’s where the sleuth in me gets going: Our daughter started having mild migraines about this same time and I experienced what I called ‘vertigo’, but I didn’t make the connection… and maybe there isn’t a connection.
