Truvia, the stevia based sweetener made by Cargill (big agribusiness firm) is really a drug (isolated ingredient).  Stevia, the whole herb, still is not approved as a sweetener in America and I was wondering how some stevia-based sweetener has been approved as a sweetener and now I understand why. It is patented drug; I guess it is a little more healthy than artificial sweeteners though.  Check out how it made below:

"Truvia (also known as rebiana) is made by taking the best leaves of the stevia plant, drying and soaking them, and then isolating the active compound"
