How do non-nutritive sweeteners rank as far as health effects?
The modern big four seem to be stevia, sucralose, saccharin, and aspartame. Lots o recent changes in their perception; the saccharin cancer link has been debunked, for instance. And maybe none of them are actually "good" to consume. But if one were determined to use a 0-calorie sweetener, which color packet should they grab first? Let's have them in order from best to worst, in other words.
I prefer the natural 0 calorie Stevia as a sweetner, and I can't rank any of the others as I believe them to be unhealthy in general. Also, Stevia has no after taste, try it and see the difference. Just don't taste it by itself, it is bittersweet and dry.

Has anyone tried the "stevia" based sweeteners? Any good? Any problems?Apparently this new natural sweetener is going to arrive here in the UK shops on Friday, but it's been out in the US for a while. Anyone...
