I've heard of it, yet I haven't really tried it due to as beenie noted, its cost. Splenda has been outstanding since it came out.

well i tried it , got 100 packs for $12 a little expensive..taste great and i did a little research showing alot of other positive aspects about this sweetener so i guess i will pay the differnce..you do use alot less since its stronger than sugar tho...

i read some prelim tests on rats showed low sperm counts in males and something with females, i'll try to find it and post it the actual article...everything else i've read seemed positive, but it's still very new...bro, if you're a normal, healthy person, aspartame is completely safe, and it's been around and studied extensively for about 30 years.

dude, i think you know what i meant, Stevia hasn't been marketed as a sweetner for very long, and that being the case, there hasn't been a whole lot of research done on it's long term effects on the body, rat or human. granted, rats do metabolize things differently than humans, but it's still new...to the MARKET. Aspartame, btw, was discovered in 1965, and approved by the FDA in 1981...there were about 100 studies done before it was approved, and there have been about 200 done since...all proving it's safety...
