Is Stevia acceptable as a sweetener, since it is a ground up leaf rather than a concentrated substance?
I believe it is acceptable as it is natural. Though you will find many people divided over this issue as some claim that one's body will react to Stevia like artificial sweeteners (read: bad for you). You will have to do your own research and decide for yourself.
