How much glucose is there per tablet? per 2 tablets? Per 200 tablets?

There is no nutritional info on the packet, and it says sweeted by Stevia, however it says it contains Glucose. Kindly elaborate how much exactly.

Thank you!

Will this be suitable for daily use, for long periods of time (5 years)? Or do the additional ingredients make that unadvisable? I am not using this for cold relief.

This product contains stevia. It IS an artificial sweetener. It is a chemically derived form of stevia leaf, and thus hardly natural. A warning should be included on the label.
