In brief: Stevia

Yes, you can safely assume that stevia, per se, should not raise your blood sugar.
However, stevia (and other sweeteners, whether artificial or not) is often coupled with foods or other ingredients that can raise your blood sugar. For example, a cookie that uses stevia as a sweetener, but still is composed of lots of processed flour, which raises blood sugar similar to sugar.
