Gamintojo atsakymas: This website http://www.truviasideeffects.com/ was set up to answer a lot of these posts and contains links to all the many scientific studies and papers written on stevia and Truvia. It’s well worth a read.09/27/2013
Just being a little more specific about the link you sent though. Here are some answers to specific points she makes: - ‘There isn’t any stevia in Truvia’. Stevia is a plant that contains sweet tasting compounds. Rebiana, also known as steviol glycocides or stevia leaf extract, are those sweet compounds that have been extracted and purified for use in food products. This extract is 2-300 times sweeter than sugar which is why Truvia is only 1% stevia. Any more would be unbearably sweet. Using the extract removes the bitter and liquorice aftertastes associated with eating the stevia leaf.- ‘Erythritol is made using GM corn.’ Cargill have confirmed to us that no GM corn is used for the erythritol used in Truvia.- ‘Erythritol will cause gastric problems.’ Sugar alcohols like erythritol pass through the body without being digested which is why they have no calorific value. Different sugar alcohols have very different effects on the body. Erythritol has been found to be the best tolerated sugar alcohol and while Truvia does carry a laxation warning, the level you would need to consume in one sitting to see any problems is around 30 times the 1.5g dosage size.- General definitions of natural. This site is from the American market and references to the FDA has no bearing in Europe. The EU has far more strict applications of the term natural than the US and Truvia is fully compliant with EU guidelines. Regarding Truvia’s safety and appropriate-ness for use in a healthy diet it is worth noting that we are the only sweetener working with Diabetes UK, the UK’s leading diabetes charity. If the product was in any way questionable for their audience then they would not have agreed to work with us.
Aš šį saldiklį pirkdavau savo diabetikei mamai, bet radau internete nekokios info puslapyje http://www.dietitiancassie.com/the-truth-on-truvia/, gal galėtumėte pakomentuoti? Nes jau ir nežinau kuom ir tikėti :(
Stevijos saldiklis - geras dalykas! Smagu, kad atsirado ir Lietuvoje. Anksčiau siųsdavausi iš užsienio savo tėveliui diabetikui. Ir pati naudoju - desertams, kulinariniams kepiniams ar arbatai pasaldinti. Sveika ir figūrai nekenkia :)08/05/2013
