One thing to watch out for with a lot of brands of stevia is the fillers used. It looks like the source you posted contains rice, maltodextrin and silica which you may or may not want to eat and may cause problems for the original poster since they have issues with sugars. I know that the sweetleaf brand uses inulin fiber as the filler. Most brands will vary quite a bit so it's a good idea to check the label to see what they use.

First of all, Welcome to DC.
Yes, there is Trivia its natural sweetener. Its now in most
stores. If you can't find it, try a natural foods store or co-op.

Depends on what you want it for but try the sweetleaf brand of stevia. It's widely available in grocery stores.
