Does stevia promote tooth decay? I thought in didn't because it doesn't affect your blood sugar.

Unprocessed stevia (not the white packets) is one of the safest sweeteners available. Even still, it does seem to somehow contribute to tooth decay if it is used too often, or if your body is out of balance when you are using it. I do not know the exact mechanism of how stevia affects your body chemistry.

Watch out for stevia that isn't made from the fresh herb. In particular stevia extract. A concentrate of stevia can be safe, but any thing that is extracted from stevia becomes and isolate and can be potentially dangerous. Also do not use stevia drops stored in glycerin.

If you do use stevia, you must use it in strict moderation. There is no sweet we can just eat with abandon that will not negatively affect our health.
