Prurvia? Stevia? Never heard of either. But then, never heard of Truvia until last week. My mother bought me a box of Truvia. A HUGE box. Told her shouldn't have gotten such a large supply when we've never tried it before. I've tried several of the sweeteners out there. Can't stand not a one of them. I tried some Truvia on mashed up fresh strawberries this past week to put over my low fat ice cream. It was 'okay', and better than any other artificial sweetener I've tried so far. But still and of course, not as good as the 'real' stuff. I'm also interested in more info about the formaldihyde thing. And more info on Prurvia & Stevia. I'll be watching.

Both are forms of Stevia. Truvia is owned by Coke, but they both add formaldehyde. This can eventually damage your kidneys. Try pure Stevia. It is all natural.You will be better off.

Formaldehyde? Is there a source for that information?

I have researched both Truvia and Purvia [Prurvia is a misspelling]. I have seen nothing in thrir sites or on other food related sites about formaldahide hiding [pun intended] in either of those sweeteners

Truvia is made by the agribusiness giant Cargill, who is partnering with Coke [not owned by] to use TruVia in a new diet Coke formulation.

PurVia is made by Whole Earth Sweetener Company, which markets low-calorie sweeteners based on erythritol and stevia extract and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Merisant Company, a United States manufacturer of artificial sweeteners, including Equal and Canderel, according to Wikipedia.

i personally think that truvia has a nasty taste ! thats my opinion, others swear by it. i haven't tried the other, if it is made from the same stuff, i probably won't like it either !
