I just got home from Canyon Ranch Lenox and I noticed you serve Stevia and Splenda for hot drinks, I have 2 questions if could help me: (1) why do you not cook/bake with granulated or regular Splenda at all? (2) Stevia – how do you feel about the FDA approval process for it in its different forms and would you use Truvia or Purevia as well? Thank you! Kara
Our policy is not to use any artificial sweeteners in our food/beverage preparation. We actually do not recommend the use of artificial sweeteners at all and only provide them because guests have requested these items be available.
Stevia is our preference because it is a naturally occurring molecule and is not chemically altered. TruVia and PureVia are altered forms of the stevia molecule, so we are not going to use or promote them.
