Chemical is as Chemical does..

Steviol is the basic building block of stevia'...

Today, we are over-bombarded with a slew of chemicals that we call “sugar substitutes.”

“Sugar Substitutes” are toted as big serendipity inventions.

Acesulfame Potassium, Aspartame, Sucralose, Saccharin, Neotame (made by NutraSweet) and Cyclamate, are better known, to some of us, as:

  • Sunnet
  • Sweet One
  • Equal
  • NutraSweet
  • Canderel
  • E951
  • Splenda
  • Altern
  • Sucraplus
  • E955
  • Benzoic Sulfinide
  • E954
  • INS 961

and are made, in processes, that include:

  • sulfonation
  • sulfamic acid
  • sulfur trioxide
  • anthranilic acid
  • nitrous acid
  • sulfur dioxide
  • chlorine
  • ammonia

and break down into substances such as:

  • aspartic acid
  • phenylalanine
  • methanol
  • formaldehyde
  • formic acid
  • diktopiperazine

What does all of this mean?  It means that chemical substitutes have a recipe.  They must have a recipe to be patented.  They are only important to manufacturer’s because they are profitable.

They make them money.

Did you know that Splenda is Chlorinated Sugar?  Does that make you want to eat more of it?

Stevia is a plant, that grows in the ground.  Stevia has been blocked and banned, from the US, by the FDA, for many different reasons, in the past.  Now that companies are making a recipe, with it, it has been approved.

This is very concerning.

Manufacturer’s of other sugar-substitutes, at risk of losing their own fortunes, fought against the approval of Stevia.  Stevia, as itself, can not be patented.

Rebianna is a recipe.  It is a sugar-substitute that is made from Stevia.  Please keep in mind that Sucralose is made from Sugar, when you consider if this is a good thing or not.

Moderation is best.  Balance is best.  “Real Natural,” in “as whole of a product, as possible,” is best.

The only real fortune to the invention of chemical sweeteners is the money that is made!
