There are numerous sugar replacements on the market. I was told that using a " natural " substitute is than a " chemical " based substitute; i.e. " splenda ". Of those I have tried I prefer " Truvia ". The product is said to not effect the blood sugar. Are there any definite clinical analysis that supports this claim ?

Truvia is basically a refined form of Stevia. Check the posts by Dr D on the use of Stevia. As he states it has been in use for quite a long time in other countries/cultures. It may be the sweetener you are looking for.
