  10. Heather says:

    People, calm down. It is still way better than sweet and low or any of the artificial sweeteners. it is still made from a plant as opposed to chemicals from a lab. You dont have to stop using it. This lawsuit is arguing a technicality there was no harm done to anyone. Just sign up and get your sixteen dollars and continue to use the product nobody is saying it is harmful.

  15. Michael Trenchort says:

    Upon learning that my Stevia In The Raw™ in fact contains traces of dextrose and maltodextrin, I broke out in a furious rampage and shattered my front window when I threw my artificial Christmas tree through it. My pet cat escaped through the hole in the window and my wife is afraid to come downstairs. Thanks a lot, Stevia In The Raw™. I’ll be signing up for this lawsuit.

    Maltodextrin can drive your glucose readings through the roof. Stevia may not be a problem for most people but if you’re diabetic, you should stay away, far away.

  30. Justin Observer (get it?!) says:

    I have to laugh at how STUPID the people are that comment on this site. “Register me, I use Stevia”, “Please Add me”, “I use Stevia to lose weight”, [profanity removed]??

    People, READ THE INFO!! The [offensive language removed] that post here deserve to be duped by huge companies, it’s just ridiculous…!!!

    ADMIN – Hi Justin,

    We try our best not to forget that lack of literacy does not reduce the humanity of an individual. It can get trying at times but the reality is that the world is full of people who struggle comprehending basic concepts. No worries. Just get a good laugh and submit your claims when applicable.

    Have a super day!

  31. Karen Saechao says:

  33. Desiree Kaye says:

    Wow, I have been buying these products for years because my mother is overweight and diabetes runs in our family, and this past December she had her second hip replacement and was given insulin daily to level out her blood sugar. The past few years I have been purchasing their sweetener, and sugar now and then, in attempt to avoid her high blood sugar and failed. I know these products are not the sole cause, but I know they did not help like they portrayed to.

      ADMIN – Hi Bill,

      This was paid out many years ago and you are no longer able to escalate as the admin has closed the administration channel for the settlement.

  47. Pete Cali says:

    I think the admin failed to send out all the checks… We never got one. I was just looking through old documents and found this open on my end. Wonder how many $16.00 checks the admin kept.

    ADMIN – Hi Pete,

    Your check was probably stolen in the mail. I know for sure I received mine.
