Truvia (Coca-Cola’s branded product) goes through about 40 steps to process the extract from the leaf, relying on chemicals like acetone, methanol, ethanol, acetonitrile, and isopropanol. Some of these chemicals are known carcinogens (substances that cause cancer).
Truvia claims to be made of stevia leaves – which are known to lend a sweet flavor to beverages. However, very little of stevia is actually used in the product. It isn’t that hard to connect the dots between plummeting diet cola sales and Coca Cola’s introduction of Truvia into the market place. People are learning that soda, whether its diet or not, really isn’t that good for you
