Product Description

Product Description

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.

Ingredients

Bulking agent: Erythritol, sweetener: steviol glycocides (stevia leaf extract), natural flavourings

If not for largely doing what you'll buy it for I'd have given this product the minimum rating. The manufacturers have made their entire focus of the marketing for this sweetener its source in the stevia leaf, with green colours all around and much mention of its natural origin. It's only once you take a closer look at the ingredients that you find out what it really is: Erythritol, with 1 percent of a highly-processed Stevia extract added to increase the sweetness of the Erythritol, and flavourings to mask its underlying bitterness.

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%.

If you get this on S&S 15% off you will save about 75p per jar on current supermarket prices. This is worth doing, if you like this sweetener. It does have a number of health advantages, over sugar and artificial sweeteners, but don't confuse it with anything actually 'healthy'. It is highly processed and has no nutritional value.
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.

Only a minute part of this product can lay claim to being Stevia.
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.
NEVER again!

I bought this pack of three as gifts for my elderly diabetic family members. After they waxed eloquently about it, I decided to try it out for myself. Truvia is made out of the extracts of a South American plant, Stevia. The process of extracting the sweetness is something like tea. In some parts of the world, people steep and strain the leaves to use its sweet juices.

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.

If you bought this thinking its stevia its not. It is absolutely nothing like stevia- its unbelievably sweet- its horrid. Silver Spoon have marketed this pretending to be a ntaural product. Instead its a ploy to trick and confuse. If you like your sweetner sickeningly sweet, then you may like it. However its not for my tastebuds and I feel that I have been misled into purchasing a product that is as far from stevia as it could possibly be. Marketing tactics brilliant- product revolting.

This is a con. Marketed and sold as a stevia product but it only contains 1% stevia extract.

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

I'm one of those people who has tried to change from sugar to a low calorie sweetener before but end up reverting back to sugar because I just can't stand the taste of sweeteners. Truvia is the best sweetener I have tried so far. I must first point out Truvia doesn't taste exactly like sugar. However, it has a sweetness that I can definitely tolerate and unlike other sweetener it doesn't have a chemical after taste. I also purchased Truvia tablet and I strongly recommend you stay away from those as for some reason the tablets don't taste anywhere near as nice as the granulated Truvia. Allegedly, if you consume too much of this sweetener it can have a laxative effect. I drink a lot of Tea and Barley Cup and take one teaspoon in each drink and I estimate that I consume 8 to 10 teaspoons of Truvia per day with no laxative side effects. For those of you who are looking for a much healthier alterative to Coffee may I recommend Barleycup Organic Caffeine Free Instant Cereal Drink 100g
