I have been using Stivia for years without any adverse reaction.  Not cooking with it but using as a sweetener.

Stevia...was avoid on BTD...black dot on Swami. Won't touch it, actually, as the ones that are compliant make my skin itch and crawl.   Nonniness... ;)

Stevia is an avoid for O nonnies but good for O secretors (I forget if it's a neutral or beneficial; I only remember that it's beneficial on my SWAMI.)

If you don't tolerate stevia well, then it's possible that you're a non-secretor, or that you're a secretor who just doesn't seem to tolerate stevia- either way, you need to avoid it.

However, before ditching stevia entirely, check that you're not reacting to an "inert" ingredient in your stevia. GI problems in particular can be caused by the kinds of fiber  often used as fillers. I buy the kind that's 100% pure stevia, and a serving size is 1/40th of a teaspoon (a teeny little sprinkle sweetens my whole cup of hot cocoa.) I don't buy the kind that's full of fillers and measures out like sugar.

Neutral for all Types except avoid for B/Secretors and O/Non-Secretors.
