    My mom has made and canned tons of homemade raspberry jam, with stevia. I know it's a sugar substitute and very yummy, I'm just wondering if it's safe for crabs. If it is, I won't have to buy jam for a treat if it is!

    I would say no as only natural sugars (like fruit - raw honey ) are ok

    I know someone was doing a stevia food trial at one time, but I can't recall the outcome. The green herb itself (dried or fresh) should be acceptable, but they are processing it into a granual product that looks like white or clear crystal sugars and I would not expect those to have any nutritional elements whatsoever.
