I was hesitant to try a new brand of stevia powder, but no issues here!
Great quality and fabulous taste!
We use stevia as a healthy sugar replacement for pancakes and other healthy recipes - smoothies and hot chocolate.
What I like about stevia is that it lasts for a long time - I bought two packages and it should last me approximately 6 months with daily use.
You need a tiny amount in a cup of tea, less than the stated 1/4 of a teaspoon. It has an interesting, herbal taste that some people may not enjoy - but I like it and think it will grow on you if you don't initially like it. It has a strong taste and will change how your tea or coffee tastes. I love the fact that it's not as processed as other sweetners and I look forward to trying it out in different recipes. I'ts probably the best thing you can do for your health if you are a sugar addict and not ready to let go : )
Although stevia is a natural product, many sweeteners containing stevia are HIGHLY processed so I make my own stevia extract! It's very easy. I just put the stevia powder in a jar and fill the jar with vodka. I guess I do about 1/3 stevia and 2/3 vodka. When it's powder form like this, the extract is made really quickly - 36-48hours is enough time (mix/shake it up a few times a day while it's soaking). Then I strain out the liquid - very easy because the powder is clumped at the bottom of the jar - and I add it to my coffee, smoothies, actually, everything that would normally take sugar. No more sugar guilt!
I used it to sweeten mild the teas for my daughter when she was a baby. Very tiny amount. Try to find out the sweetnes intensity before you use it for babies. Start with a little pinch.
This amount is enough for the next 20 years of sweetening my teas.
I bought this item because I wanted to try the pure stevia leaf powder compared to the grocery store products that often include added ingredients. I will say that the taste can be VERY strong if not used properly. I like to cold brew my tea so I add 1/2 Teaspoon to every 16oz bottle. It will give you a boost of energy so I recommend taking it maybe afternoon-evening. Other than that it is a good thing to have around if you don’t like using sugar. And the Health benefits from stevia in general can be rewarding. Try it out, you might just make it your daily!
I like this stevia sweetener because it is not as processed as most. The taste however is a quite strong stevia taste. Solution: Boil in water for 1 minute and when cool pour Entire mixture in bottle. Use water and needed. The taste is more subtle than using direct leaf powder
As it has no fillers it is very sweet, but, as it is made of just pure unprocessed natural stevia leaf, it also has stevia's distinct 'leafy' taste. To me the taste of stevia is nice, it goes ok with almost everything, best well with lemonade or green tea, not the best with coffee or cacao. Once you are familiar with the taste it is not hard to guess when to use it and when it is better to use some other sweetener. If you are searching for the true fresh stevia taste and sweetness this powder gives you that, high quality stevia leaf powder.
If you're looking for true stevia, this is a great choice. There are not additives, no bleaching...just powdered stevia. No other ingredients. Yes, the color is greenish—but don't be alarmed! That's the color stevia is supposed to be! (It is a plant, after all.) Since stevia has a very sweet taste, you don't need to use a whole lot at once. The package is a generous size. You can use this in your coffee, tea, baked goods, and more.
Don't know what to say about this. It should be non refined stevia, wich it is. I'm not used to it yet. Its really sweet so I use even less than it says on packaging. For me it also have a bitter taste and that herbal taste wich I really don't like, especially in coffee. Still haven't try in muffins, so that is next thing I'm going to do and hope that herbal scent won't be so strong.
Great, pure and as described. Hard to fault in any way. That true green stevia aftertaste will always be there. However, once you get the balance right - it is perfection. It is a very fine balance, to be sure. This is one product where you must measure with great care.
I use it for my morning raw cacao and Ceylon cinnamon drink - with almond milk fwiw.
Would give it 5, just wondering if it could get a tiny bit better on taste. Health wise, this is (afaik) one one the best sweeteners.
Yet another iHerb win!
