Stevia is safe, but I believe Truvia combines stevia with some very IBS unfriendly ingredients.

sorry about that. I didn't check out the website entirely. Thanks so much for the warning. I have been having really bad pain...maybe I have found the culprit, hopefully. What do you drink besides herbal tea?

They say it has not artificial sweeteners because they extract erythritol from grapes and pears. A similar thing is happening with sodium nitrate in meats. Because sodium nitrate is found in celery extract the manufacturers are called meats with celery extract natural with no artificial preservatives. It just nonsense to confuse the consumer with the same ingredient extracted from natural sources.

I used frozen berries, I thaw them, mash them and strain them to make a berry juice. I add 1/5 glass of juice with the rest water and ice. It makes a lovely safe drink. Even a splash of pulp free orange juice in water makes a nice drink too.

Some versions contain sucralose - an artificial sweetener. Some of the natural flavored ones don't contain an artificial sweetener but they do contain a far amount of sugar. You might considered drinking coconut water instead of gatorade.

Actually, I believe in 2011 they removed high fructose corn syrup and used a mixture of sucrose and dextrose. However, check the label.
