    Holy cow!!! I've recently been told I am pre-diabetic. I've learned more here in just a few minutes than I've learned in the class' I've gone to. I will share this info with them. Thank you to all!!

    We have stopped using aspartame, too - per the doctor's warning. Sure miss our Zero drinks, though. We've switched to iced tea and lemonade.

    I use half sugar and half Splenda, too - and sometimes Splenda only. The portion control for type 2 is essential. When my hubby found out he was diabetic, it scared him so much, he basically stopped eating. Then he realized that wasn't the answer and went with portion control - and cut his bread and potato intake in half. He dropped 70 pounds the first year and has kept it off for 7 years. Now, he eats pretty much what he wants - smaller servings, though - and takes a 15 minute walk after the biggest meal of the day - which is now at noon with soup or a sandwich at 6 PM.

    I would recommend asking them. For example, Stevia and aspartame don't bother me, but Splenda (aka sucralose) causes terrible side effects for me. Heart palpitations, dizziness, nausea, migraine headache, feeling faint, etc. It very nearly sent me to the emergency room once. I have to read every label carefully. Sometimes Splenda is even in things that aren't labeled as being sugar free or low calorie, which I was surprised about (some of the ready-to-drink Kool Aid products, for example -- bursts or blasts or something like that).

    Given a choice, I'd highly prefer Stevia, but so far I've been unable to find soft drinks made with it. I don't like coffee, but I "have" to have my morning diet soda!

    I'm not sure Stevia can be used for baking, though. I think I read that it couldn't. (not sure ... ???)
    Have a wonderful day! If you need to contact me, please use the e-mail address on my profile page. Sometimes I don't get notifications that I have a PM here. Please note that I'm usually unavailable on weekends, but I'll get back to you on Monday.

    All of those are starches...which turn to sugar during digestion.
