A natural sweetener which of course is being shunned by the Sugar industry, the The Fed won’t give its support, understandably, they want to protect their sugar industry, they prefer to keep the chain of hundreds of millions on diabetic medications intact.
As we now know, the artificial sweetener Aspartame is manufactured by Monsanto, known for its GM modified crop seeds.We must not expect, ever, that Federal agencies will encourage consumption of Stevia. Rather, we shall find many controversial new ‘revelations’ regarding this simple herb that protects us from Diabetes.The issue is relatively simple, or at least understandable to common people, if they take the time to ‘understand’ and look into details.White sugar is not a natural product, it is modified from brown (natural) to white (unnatural). How does this happen ? If you want a brown substance to become white in appearance, you need to bleach it. There are lots of agents (chemical) that could bleach, one of it is Hydrogen peroxide, another one is Caustic Soda, Calcium phosphate, as well as other chemicals.Here is the process described by Wikipedia:
In sugar refining, raw sugar is further purified. It is first mixed with heavy syrup and then centrifuged clean. This process is called ‘affination’; its purpose is to wash away the outer coating of the raw sugar crystals, which is less pure than the crystal interior. The remaining sugar is then dissolved to make a syrup, about 70 percent by weight solids.
Raw sugar has a yellow to brown colour. If a white product is desired, sulfur dioxide may be bubbled through the cane juice before evaporation; this chemical bleaches many color-forming impurities into colourless ones. Sugar bleached white by this sulfitation process is called “mill white,” “plantation white,” and “crystal sugar.” This form of sugar is the form most commonly consumed in sugarcane-producing countries.
