Houseplant stevia: Reference is Canadian Family Physician 2014-use of non-nutritional sugar substitutes is not harmful in pregnancy in the form of birth defects or harm to the fetus. However it is recommended that sugar subs be consumed in moderate amounts to reduce bowel irritability seen with excessive amounts used.
