As an herb, I wonder how easy it would be to grow and subsequently process your own stevia sweetener. And yeah, while I can get it at some regular grocery stores, not just health food, it is overpriced because its new and "natural and healthy"
Sorry to high jack your thread haha, I have not used lactose as I like it dry, but use splenda on occasion for SWMBO.
Edited to add cool info on this site: http://www.stevia.net/growingstevia.htm
