      I have found dried crushed stevia leaf or leaf powder in
      the bulk herb section of health food stores, and put it in
      coffee to good effect, so if it is available online in this
      form I think you guys across The Big Puddle can sidestep
      the no stevia crowd.

      > It seems big business has stopped the sale of Stevia as a sweetener in the

      have interfered with the process that should make Stevia available on the
      shelves. It is an herb with good properties and 300 times sweeter than sugar...I
      guess they would lose substantial business if they made it available to us.

      to maintain profits for the sweetener/sugar companies.

      if I can do so. So far, I am not convinced about the supplier. If anyone has
      bought it and used it I would be really glad to hear from you.
