Googling, I found they did replace an artificial sweetener (acesulfame potassium) with stevia. But I'm pretty sure there were other amino acid/peptides mentioned on the label before. Note: it also has crystalline fructose, which is a sugar derived from corn, so I'm not sure why it needs the stevia.

Anyway, I mix it at less than half the strength they recommend, so I'm not getting the 12g of added sugar the label says it has.
