I have bee doing some extensive research on the product " Truvia " and derivative of the " Stevia " plant. No calories, but I haven't found whether there are carbohydrates. Anyone familiar with this product ? It has recently been approved by the FDA.

I use truvia, and stevia on a limited basis. I have cut so much in the way of sugars, and artificial sugars, that I taste sweetness even in a lemon in plain iced tea. So the amounts of truvia or stevia that I use are maybe a package or drop or two a week.
