Your question:
Can stevia be heated? How can I use it in cooking?

The expert answers:
Stevia can be heated and does not lose sweetness in cooking or baking.

Since it comes in many forms, be sure to check for sweetness equivalency. Also, make sure that the stevia recipes are indeed low in carbs. Some I have seen and researched have had many high-carb ingredients. Be sure that all a recipe's ingredients are allowed on your low-carb regimen.

Here's to a healthier and thinner life!
