Stevia is now Government-Approved

Showing the intellectual nimbleness we’ve all come to know and love about the Federal Government, the FDA has roused itself from its duty to keep Americans Safe From Ourselves to give their stamp of approval to a highly processed form of a natural non-sugar sweetener that you probably never heard of if you aren’t plugged into the low-carb lifestyle: stevia.

Wall Street Journal[*1] :

The FDA’s decision applies only to a highly purified form of stevia known as rebaudioside A, supplied by other companies to Cargill and Merisant, which have further developed it for tabletop, food and beverage use.
