Stevia Warning

I posted some recipes recently with Stevia in them, and just wanted to warn that too much can cause stomach upset. Some people might have a bad reaction with even just a little. It really depends on the person. I didn't have any issues until I started using a lot of it, every day. I have completely eliminated ALL other sources of sugar other than Stevia and fruits, for the last 2 months...and I may have gotten a bit carried away :) I recommend you start off slowly, and use it in moderation.

Some Stevia preparations have erithritol(SP?)in them and that can cause stomach upset/ diarhea.

What about using Lo Han as a sweetener? I hear it doesn't have the aftertaste that stevia has.
