“The Diet Diva” Tara Gidus shares about the Truvia sweetener

More and more people are beginning to catch on to the need for finding healthy alternatives to sugar. We all know the deleterious effects that sugar has on our bodies by raising our blood sugar and insulin levels which wreak havoc inside the body. That’s why it’s good to know there are adequate substitutes out there and they just keep getting better. My podcast interview guest today shares more about the most exciting new one to hit the marketplace in recent memory.

In Episode 299 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we hear from registered dietitian Tara Gidus, aka “The Diet Diva,” who tells us why the new stevia/erythritol-based all-natural sweetener in the green and white packets called Truvia. It’s the first major stevia-based sweetener to come out on the market as part of a joint venture between The Coca-Cola Company and Cargill Foods as I first shared about in May 2007. In fact, I was privileged to taste Truvia for myself in New York City last summer and was immediately impressed by how good it looked and tasted. Tara tells us all about the benefits of adding Truvia to your diet, what really nasty ingredient is found in every other sweetener but not in Truvia, the various products that are currently using Truvia as a sweetener, the desire to have a bulk spoonable product, and why stevia took so long to get approved as a sweetener by the FDA.
