Stevia – The New White Poison

If Stevia has a green leaf, where does the white powder come from? The green herb is bleached and powdered to produce a product which looks more like a sweetener and does not affect the color of the food it is added to. White Stevia is highly processed. The dark green colored whole leaf extract is exceptionally healthful, both internally and externally. Highly concentrated, it has a bitter-sweet taste until properly diluted. White Stevia is processed and standardized up to 80% Rebaudioside A. (400 times sweeter than sugar) to produce a fine white powder with no bitter after taste. The raw powdered herb is green and very sweet, but not as sweet as the processed white stevia. The raw green stevia and to a lesser extent white stevia leaves a slight after-taste. EXTRACTION OF STEVIA GLYCOSIDES WITH CO2 + WATER, CO2 + ETHANOL, AND CO2 + WATER + ETHANOL Ethanol: Ethanol, also called ethyl alcohol, pure alcohol, grain alcohol, or drinking alcohol, is a volatile, flammable, colorless liquid. It is a powerful psychoactive drug, best known as the type of alcohol found in alcoholic beverages and in modern thermometers. Ethanol is one of the oldest recreational drugs.

    @wvoutlaw2009 – Chlorophyll cannot be extracted with water.

    @FictitiousMinds From the Livestrong article:

    “The glycosides are extracted from the leaves using either water or alcohol and membrane filtration. Because it evaporates, no alcohol remains in the finished product. The liquid becomes clear rather than green because the extraction process removes the chlorophyll, and white glycosides remain.”

    Notice the keywords “either” and “or”.

    All you have done is use the fact that Truvia and PureVia are processed with ethanol and then twist it around around and say that all white stevia is processed with ethanol…when your links clearly state that white stevia is processed with _water or ethanol_. Most of the stevia products which you demonized in your propaganda piece are processed with water and ZERO ethanol.

    Your video is a 100% disinformation piece paid by the makers of Truvia and PureVia who hate TRUE stevia.

    “Poop is healthier than white stevia”? “Heil stevia”? Just admit that this is propaganda paid in part by the aspartame and sugar industries.
