Water. Sunshine. Nutrients from the Earth. That's what goes into the stevia plant. Then nature works her magic and creates a wonderfully sweet taste. Next, dried stevia leaves are steeped in water similar to making tea. This unlocks the best tasting part of the leaf, which is further purified to provide a calorie-free sweet taste.
Bulking agent: Erythritol, sweetener: steviol glycocides (stevia leaf extract), natural flavouringsSee all Product Description

So why does it gain a star? Because as a cheap artificial sweetener it's actually a reasonably good product. Erythritol is one of a group of substances known as sugar alcohols. This group also includes a much more famous member known as Xylitol. Xylitol has become the most popular sugar alcohol in the world for two reasons: it has the same sweetness as sugar, and it's cheap.
In any group there will be leaders and laggards, and where Erythritol is the king of sugar alcohols Xylitol maintains the sewer system. Xylitol contains two thirds as many calories as Sucrose while the rest of it is unable to be digested by the body so it shunts it out as waste. Erythritol contains no calories and 90% is absorbed unchanged from the ileum into the bloodstream, bypassing the colon, and is subsequently excreted by the kidneys without causing gastrointestinal discomfort. The downside to Erythritol is that it isn't quite as sweet as sugar, so Coca-Cola and Cargill (the manufacturers) have added some Stevia extract to sweeten this Erythritol-based sugar replacement, and because it doesn't sound as glamorous have pretended that it's Stevia with some Erythritol added as a bulking agent. Some in this instance being a paltry 99%.Read more ›
I use it frequently, and find the plastic jar to be a good size and shape for re-use for spices, milk powder, seeds, etc.
One teaspoon/tablet equal to 1 teaspoon of sugar? In whose dreams?
The aftertaste lingers for ages, and is so chemical, it's not true.
As I discovered on the internet, this is very safe for diabetics. 'Here's why it's so good: Stevia leaves contain two "glycoside" molecules, steioside and rebaudioside, which are 300 times sweeter than table sugar. Stevia has no calories, a zero glycemic index (meaning it has no carbs), no artificial ingredients, and no effect on blood sugar.'
So, other than it being safe for diabetics with a sweet tooth, it is also a useful trick for the calorie conscious: I tea spoon of truvia is equal to three teaspoons of sugar so, if you are baking a cake, you could blend it with sugar and halve the calories of the cake! That is what I did. Unlike aspartame, stevia extracts do not undergo any changes in the heat and my cake looked and tasted fine. What I wasn't too happy about was the taste of sweetness in my throat, it is quite similar to liquorice or cinnamon, both of which leave an underlying sweetness in your throat. A lot of people might be annoyed about it, but to people who crave for desserts and can't have them, this will be godsend! Moreover, I discovered the regular Sprite available in the UK has started adding Stevia extracts, it tastes no different and has 30% less calorie.
You are better of with something that is pure and 100% stevia... like this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Now-Foods-Better-Certified-Organic/dp/B005F9XFN0/ref=sr_1_10?s=drugstore&ie=UTF8&qid=1391872736&sr=1-10&keywords=stevia

Has a chemical taste also...not surprising as it is a marketing scam and only 1% steviaPublished 9 days ago by MooReviews
Smells faintly of vanilla I think. Closer to the taste of sugar than other sweeteners I've tried. We've used it both in cooking and in hot drinks. Impressed.Published 8 months ago by Sawboy
This isn't pure stevia, so I found a product that is. It did taste much nicer than the usual sweeteners and is probably better for you than aspartame. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Zoe Williams
i use it half and half with sugar, the granules form is so much more pleasant than the powder, it doesn't foam, very good, hoping price will come down a littlePublished 9 months ago by jackie
