I use organic stevia all the time. Since it's a plant and not a chemical concoction, it doesn't seem to have the physical effects - but, of course, your mileage may vary.

It is not difficult to grow, but I'd grow more rather than less, because sweet stuff may be at a premium and being able to trade some might make you "rich" in the SHTF world.

Maybe this weekend I'll pick up some stevia and try it. Not like I need no-calorie sweeteners but if I can tolerate it then I can recommend it to others.

You aren't wrong about sweet stuff being a trade good. Sugar and honey can keep a wound from becoming infected or preserve food. There are all kinds of sources - bees, maple (and other trees) syrup, sugar cane and sugar beets.

Oh, and I've heard reports from the hills of Appalachia of "orange powder", a substitute for black powder in flintlocks. Haven't run across how it's made yet but I know that sugar of some sort is used.
