Is it Truvia that this is a all natural sugar substitute?

Now don't get me wrong, but for as long as I remember, I have been a Dixie Crystal Sugar kinda girl. It is a southern thing. Fast forward a few years.... I have a mother who is a diabetic and I have suffered with gestational diabetes during pregnacy. Although I did not have any desire to do so, I had to give the sugar substitute a try.

Truvia surprised me. It was good and the aftertaste that you traditionally get with sugar substitutes was minimal. I tried my truvia with a grapefruit. I couldn't really tell much of a difference. It was sweet. Good and sweet. I really think I am going to recommend it to my mom. She is always tries to drink sweet tea with dixie crystals.... I am going to get her hooked by making her some sweet tea with truvia, and see how she reacts to that.
Some helpful info about truvia:

One packet of Truvia™ natural sweetener provides the same sweetness as two teaspoons of sugar.
Truvia™ natural sweetener is a great alternative for people with diabetes
