Pure Stevia Extract
Two words - My Favorite
I have been using stevia since before it was legal in the US. Back then, it was sold as part of a facial mask (we all bought it just for the stevia), was a dark brown, slightly thick liquid that tasted strongly of licorice! I like licorice and it didn't affect the flavor of what it was put in very much, so I thought it was wonderful.
That said, I have used a significant number of brands of stevia over the years - liquid and solid. The quality has progressed immensely, and KAL's is superb. It is now my only choice, and Swanson's price the best I have found.

I have tried at least 20+ brands of Stevia and there is not one as good as Kal Stevia. It's heads above all the rest. No fillers, just the pure stuff. Since there's not fillers, it takes less per serving too which makes it last longer. It tastes great! true sweet taste, no bitter after taste, and since you use less, it actually costs less than other brands. This is the only Stevia I really like.

does NOT dissolve easily
I've used KAL and NuNaturals pure stevia powders (not the one with maltodextrin). KAL has a milder grassy taste and is less concentrated/purified than NuNaturals. Correspondingly it takes larger amount of KAL to get the same sweetness as NuNaturals. On the other hand, it is less probable to get bitter taste with KAL since it is more diluted. The major drawback of KAL is that it does NOT dissolve easily in water - it forms lumps and just floats there. I prefer NuNaturals which is more concentrated and dissolves easily.

Great - Very sweet and the best stevia I have used
This is really the best brand I have ever used. It is so sweet and therefore you use much lesser than you would other brands. I have even baked muffins and breads with it, along with sweetening my puddings, teas, etc.

I've tried a lot of stevia and thought I'd found the best with Now's Better Stevia but KAL is the best yet and lasts a long time. Give it a try.

I've been hoping for this...
I've been using Kal Stevia for years.
I usually get it at the health food store for $10 more.
I use it mainly to sweeten lemonade or cranberry juice, but also in hot cereal. I haven't tried it, but I hear you can bake with it too. A little goes a REALLY long way. One jar lasts me about a month.
So glad I don't have to pay 30 bucks anymore at the store. Thanks Swanson!

It only takes a little bit to make things sweet. Too much and you get a bitterness. The container makes it difficult to apply the small amount needed so you have to do it very carefully. This Stevia has no other added ingredients to it is very pure and potent.

Thanks for adding this!
I have been using this brand of Stevia extract for several years. Now I can buy it from my favorite supplier. I have been buying the vitamins, minerals & herbs I need from Swansons for many years and can now buy my favorite sweetener too! Swanson is the best! Thanks.

Best stevia there is
No bitter aftertaste. It only takes a tiny bit to sweeten beverages.

The Best Stevia
After trying numerous stevia brands, Kal stevia is, by far, the best tasting one on the market. It is sweeter than all the others with less bitterness. I use it everyday in my green smoothies and use it, along with xylitol, for everything that I need to sweeten.

Of all the stevia brands on the market, the KAL
powder is by far the best tasting. I have tried them
