The Problem with Stevia – Dr. Berg

Posted on Dec 10, 2019

In this video, we’re going to talk about stevia and the problem with stevia.  It’s very important to read the labels on the things you buy. Just because something might be keto-friendly does not mean it’s healthy. That can be the case with stevia on keto.

The problems with some brands of stevia sweetener:

• Stevia in the Raw—Maltodextrin (the highest type of sweetener on the glycemic index)

• Sweet Leaf—Inulin (can create bloating)

• Better Stevia—Organic cane alcohol

• Pyure Stevia—Organic stevia and natural flavors (Likely GMO ingredients)

What stevia is best? For the most part, if you can get stevia by itself, it’s going to be ok. Ideally, it would be great if you get the stevia that’s green and not white, which has a lot of unneeded chemicals.
