    Natural sweeteners is now the trend nowadays. People love it because it is healthier compared to sugar. It has good effects on your body. I’m using Natvia. It is a nice natural sweetener. Taste the same like sugar.

      Yes, all of a sudden it is every where. And yes, it is way healthier than refined sugar. Does not give me that “sugar high”. Never had Natvia….Got to do some research on that:)
