Bottom Line: Truvia is the second most popular sugar substitute in the US. It contains erythritol, rebaudioside A and “natural flavors.”
There’s no Stevia in The Truvia Sweetener, Only Tiny Amounts of Rebaudioside A
“The best sweetness comes from nature. Truvia sweetener is natural, great-tasting sweetness born from the leaves of the stevia plant.”
This quote, from the Truvia website, is terribly misleading.
Truvia barely contains any components of the stevia plant, and certainly none of the health benefits.
Stevia leaves contain two sweet compounds, stevioside and rebaudioside A.
However, there is no stevioside in Truvia, only tiny amounts of purified rebaudioside A, which has not been linked to any health benefits.
For this reason, marketing Truvia as a “stevia-based” sweetener is highly questionable.
Bottom Line: Rebaudioside A is the stevia compound used in Truvia. It does not contain stevioside, the compound in stevia that provides health benefits.
The primary ingredient in Truvia is actually erythritol.
Erythritol is a sugar alcohol that can be found in some natural foods like fruits. According to Cargill’s website, they manufacture erythritol by processing corn into a food grade starch, which is then fermented with yeast to create a broth. This is then purified further to create erythritol crystals.
Bottom Line: Erythritol is the main ingredient in Truvia. It does not cause harmful metabolic effects like sugar, and is considered safe.
The mix of erythritol and rebiana goes through a patented process that is controlled by the same big companies that manage aspartame. Some of it starts out with stevia but the same could be said of Splenda and sugar; the whole ends up being truly artificial in substance. Just say 'no'. Look for a stevia sweetener that consists of stevia, not some big company's invention.
The stuff I'm using now is absolutely wonderful. It's called SweetLeaf.
Purchasing it on Amazon is an amazing deal. With this quantity I won't be running out of it anytime soon, but I'll definitely be back for more.

Taste is an individual thing, and I gather that some people have receptors that others don't. Truvia is certainly sweet, but to me it tastes like imitation vanilla. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Tom Anderson
