This product also contains Maltodextrine, which is not shown on the front of the package.
Picked this up to try to cut out sugar and other artificial (chemical) sweeteners. Guess what the first ingredient is...Dextrose...a sweetener made from GMO corn. If it doesn't say 100% Stevia it's cut with other "natural" and probably chemical sweeteners.
I am not suppose to be eating sugar, so
Stevia Extract In The Raw works for me.
And I just keep losing weight too! ;-)
This is my sugar replacement and I am
very happy with it!
If you can't understand why the product measures same as sugar then pick up a bag of equal size and you will notice "stevia" in volume is light as a feather. The 9.7 ounce bag is larger than a 5 pound bag of sugar. It works very well and there is no deception. Check it out.
Best sugar substitute I have found
I started using stevia because I was looking for more natural products. I am concerned about the extraction process, and the possibility of using chemicals to do such, and I will be looking into that further. However, I am incredibly happy with my experience so far with Stevia! For those of you who said it is "bitter", you are probably using WAY to much, especially when you are sweetening things that already have so much sugar in it, like yogurt (19-26g per 6oz serving). I used it like sugar when I first got it and was overwhelmed by the taste. Stevia is so much sweeter than sugar that it only takes a fraction of the amount of sugar I used to use to sweeten things like tea. This is supposed to be the basis of it's appeal. Stevia is natural and healthier than sugar, AND you can use way less to get the same sweetening effect. I'm not sure about baking, as I haven't done any with Stevia, and I dont know what the conversion ratio would be. If you are supposed to use the same amount as sugar, I think that's way to much sweetener.
First, this product was not dissolve in cold water and took 15 minute to dissolve a teaspoon at room temperature liquid. It was only dissolved in hot liquid. But as soon as I add this product into my hot water, the bleach chlorine gas is evaporated. The fume was so strong that make me cough. I was using stevia from other brand without this terrible fume. I would not recommended this "Stevia in Raw" to anyone and definitely would not buy it again.
I've been using Stevia for a while now in the place of sugar for tea, coffee, and everywhere else I'd use sugar. Its better for you than other artificial sweeteners, and is derived from natural plant oils rather than pharmaceutical chemicals. Stevia is pretty strong, so to sweeten a jug of tea you need less of it to get the same level of sweetness you'd get from sugar. About 3/4 cup is enough for a large jug of fresh tea, while you'd need 1 full heaping cup of sugar otherwise. Its also zero calorie, and is safe for people with diabetes. One bag should easily last you a month and a half depending on how frequently you use it. I use it mostly for tea, so it tends to last me a long time.
I"m an active user of stevia extract, both liquid & powder. Stevia In The Raw doesn't sweeten as well, about half strength at best. It doesn't dissolve easily unless the beverage is hot & then there's still some stirring required. It gives off an odd odor when it dissolves. It is a messy, powdery stuff. Don't have any breezes near & definitely don't sneeze, it'll go everywhere. Stuff has an odd texture. I won't by it again.
As a generational diabetic I love this product. I use it as anyone would use sugar, in drinks and baking. I do wish it would become more popular so the price would come down. Don't get me wrong the price is not high enough for this senior on a small budget to be prohibitive.
This is probably the best sugar substitute I've found. It is sweet without about being to sweet and there is no aftertaste. The only thing that I find weird about this is that the texture is like granulated Styrofoam.
Healthy sweetener. You can not beat Walmart's great value and price!
Being raw I expected a brownish colour crystal, but the white powder works just as good.
Hole openings in typical sugar container are too small, because this is more of a flakey granule than sand-like. But this form was the cheapest I saw on the site, and it sweetens adequately, so I'll just put it in a container with a lid and spoon it out.
I am very happy with this sweetener. I had no idea it would be that effective. I have been using two packets of my previous sweetener, but only have to use one of these, so price-wise, very great. Taste and value outstanding.
Best price around!
It's all maltodextrose, barely any Stevia. I returned it. Doesn't even look like Stevia. Product is totally different from Truvia.
I know now that all stevia is not created equal, this has a horrible bitter aftertaste. I hadn't tried stevia but wanted an alternative to honey and agave and bought this. the 'in the raw' is what sold me on it. Please, don't waste your money on this, buy Truvia, I tried that and it is delicious, and the price is pretty fair. After I began researching stevia more I saw that most stevia products have a bitter aftertaste, but Truvia doesn't.
I make homemade lemonade with stevia for a zero calorie naturally sweetened beverage. I like stevia because it doesn't upset my stomach like artificial sweeteners do. It tastes a little different from sugar (such as when I dip strawberries in it), but I have grown accustomed to the taste, and don't desire sugar any more than stevia now. I am looking forward to the food industry using this sugar substitute in more products for lower calorie alternatives.
No chemicals, as this is a plant extract.....just as sugar comes from a plant....but Stevia has no calories, just pure sweetness.
