Stevia/Truvia and Breastfeeding - BabyCenter
Welcome to Mothering! OR Remember. Old , PM - Thread Starter. Hi all. Just wondering if anyone knows if its ok to use stevia while breastfeeding. Jen78fl is offline. Old , PM. Ok, just my opinion here: I think you should be asking is it safe at all? I look back at the history of artifical sweeteners aspartame, equal, splenda etc.. I always say to stick with the real thing: you shouldn't eat very much of it anyway- using the real thing often keeps us from overdoing the amount we use.
Aspiring ExPat. Hale doesn't have any info on Stevia , but does say that it has been used as a natural sweetener in South America for many centuries, and therefore doubts that it is a problem. PatioGardener is offline. Old , AM. Originally Posted by pagodafish. CorasMama is offline. Wow, I guess the Stevia support group meets here. Splenda was "made from sugar" and that didn't pan out And High-fructose corn syrup is a "natural sweetener" I'm just suggesting that marketing is tricky and it's ok to question what it is you're actually eating.
I guess if the FDA says it's safe- go for it. Actually, the FDA didn't approve it for a loooong time, because of the money they get from the companies who make artificial sweeteners. Stevia isn't like splenda and hfcs, which are so far removed from their sources. It's merely a basic herbal extract. I don't know that the snark is really called for, btw.
Yep, Stevia is totally safe Andi - roller derby, slave to the hoop, birth junkie, lover of love, single mama of 4. Sarcasm doesn't read well and I forgot.
My apology Corasmama. Jen, If you are already convinced that the Stevia brand sweetener is safe then further research probably isn't for you. I was particularly concerned about the reproductive damages found in studies. Also, just because something is a plant does not mean it is totally safe.
That is strange logic. I can think of hundreds of plants that would kill you if you ate them. Just because something is derived from a plant does not make it all-natural. There is a process used to get the plant from the dirt to the packet on your table. Also, Stevia brand contains erythritol- that's a sugar substitute If you are growing it your backyard and using it in it's natural form- like it had been for centuries- then knock yourself out! However, if you just want to cut calories then do that.
Skip the fads. We never could trick nature, never will. ETA: Sorry to take this way off track- you asked about BFing and it's safety, not it's safety in general. Stevia isn't a brand, and my stevia sweetleaf brand doesn't contain erythritol. My point was that it's a simple extract. I know that plant! But centuries of safe use can! April Dawn. FWIW, my son has medicine for his reflux. April Dawn is offline. Thanks everyone. I should have explained better.
Im not trying to cut calories, never have used anything but sugar to sweeten, but I just ordered some liquid ionic calcium for myself and it says it contains stevia. I used stevia as part of my rasp leaf tea mix all through pregnancy with the approval of my midwife hence I assume it is fine now that the baby is born,too. I bought actual dried stevia leaves from the bulk herb section. Didn't realize anyone was selling processed packaged versions. Watershippy is offline. There is a stevia that is sold in a similar package to artificial sweetners now.
