I don't know, but even if you can you might want to know this about Truvia:

Rebiana is not an ingredient in the stevia plant, nor is it found in nature. It is produced by the action of chemicals and stringent alcohols on various stevia glycosides. Rebiana is the trade name Cargill gave their chemically derived product (Truvia) in 2008. The FDA "No Questions" letter stated that Rebiana contains residues of ethanol and methanol.

Rebaudioside-A (Reb-A)is commonly confused with Rebiana. Reb-A is one of the 11 glycoside compounds naturally within stevia leaves and are 400 times sweeter than sugar. It is produced by the action of sunlight on the stevia leaves.

Truvia is 9/10 of 1% Rebiana and masking agent (the masking agent is to cover up its bad taste profile) and 99.1% erythritol, a sugar extracted from corn with alcohol (a sugar alcohol), which can be hard on the digestive system.

Truvia is essentially corn sugar.
