Stevia Does Not Have Zero Calories

Why does every website on the internet say that stevia has zero calories? According to Cronometer, it has nearly the same calories as common granulated sugar! All websites state what wikipedia says. There being no law preventing the publication of falsehoods on the internet, no harm done, eh? Fortunately, we have Cronometer to set the record straight! Stevia contains a substantial amount of starch, which accounts for all the calories. See the NCCDB listing on Cronometer.
