Got these for my dad, while you can buy Stevia at the supermarket these do taste a lot better. He loves sweet tastes and sweeteners in general doesn't come close to sugar. Still, use with caution... Diabetes is not something you ignore and it works great if you want some in your coffee, tea etc and he said that its pretty much the same as sugar. You can use it for baking (so it says on the can) but Mom hasn't tried that yet, I'm a bit uncertain that it'll the same as sugar in taste and texture. Dad wanted some cupcakes which I think will work out pretty good. But still, I advice my mom to try to keep the usage low in general. A bit more expensive but well worth it in the end.
