I just bought a box of Equal Stevia, the ingredients are:

-Dextrose -celulose -Stevia extract.

Would you use this as a sweetener on a daily basis?

Thanks, and Love to everyone.

isnt dextrose derived from corn which would also probably be gmo?

dextrose is just glucose, which is not as bad as sucrose. Cellulose is typically extracted from wood pulp -- so it's really just a filler..

I use the SweetLeaf stevia sweetener. I assumed it was just stevia, but I checked and it has two ingredients: Stevia Extract and Inulin. I checked on amazon, the sweetleaf is a bit cheaper than equal.

No. The only stevia I use has only stevia as the ingredient. I use a powder of the whole green leaf. Dextrose is a form of glucose and perhaps for you, in small amounts, you are fine with it. I personally wouldn't use something with dextrose but hey, we are all different.
