Rated 1 out of 5 by IdahoMary contains maltodextrin
Please note that this is not 100% stevia extract. The other ingredient listed is maltodextrin. No where is an ingredient list which shows which ingredient has the most content in the powder. I believe this is very misleading. The smaller version in Swanson (1.3 oz) has no maltodextrin but I have noticed in stores that the smaller now does contain it. Be aware if this is a concern of yours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sammy10 It last forever, since such a small amount is used,, it has to be pure Stevie, which it is. ..No calories, with the sweet flavor, and without the drawbacks of other artificial sweeteners.

Rated 1 out of 5 by zoe1 Malodextrin has been added
I have been purchasing this product for years because there was no other ingredients added.. I noticed after I had ordered several bottles that something had changed about it. It would take more when you put it in your coffee or tea. My husband kept complaining something was wrong with it. I told him it must have been a bad batch. I just recently needed to reorder so I decided to read the ingredients and I found out it is no longer pure stevia. They have added Malodextrin to this product and they still say it is pure stevia. I ordered the organic kind this time but I had to pay more for it but I do not want to consume a product that may not be safe. I will never buy this product again unless they stop putting the Malodextrin in it.

Tried out several stevia extracts over the past few years, and this is by far my favorite. Very concentrated, so only very little is needed.

I've tried many different kinds of Stevia and NONE come close to the Kal Stevia in this powder form. I use 1/4 a tsp to 1 cup of sugar when I bake or sweeten tea, etc. I use it every day, it's the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiz Kal Stevia Extract
This is by far the best Stevia I have ever used.
I have been using this product for more than 2 yrs now. I have used many prior to this product and all others fall short. Only use a small amount, this extract is concentrated and no strange aftertaste.
Glad I tried it. This product is one I recommend often.

Rated 2 out of 5 by KayDee2U New Formula
The KAL powdered stevia has been a favorite of mine ever since I discovered it. How disappointed I was to discover the company has changed the formula. (At the time of this writing, the Swanson website has not been updated to reflect this change; under "Other Ingredients" it should read "maltodextrin") I am returning this order of regular stevia (which has the maltodextrin in it) and purchasing the organic, in the hopes it has not been changed or what is in stock is the old formula. When I called the company to inquire as to the change, I was told they added the maltodextrin to keep the powder from sticking to the machinery.

Our whole family has used this stevia for years. We have tried numerous others and this seems to be the only one without fillers that is really sweet, with just a tiny amount.

After trying many brands of stevia, I believe Kal is the best. It is pure and a good strength. Swanson has the best price that I have found.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Connie123 Kal Pure Stevia
I have tried many different brands and forms of stevia. This is by far the best value. It is pure extract, therefore a little goes a long way, It mixes easily and does not clump.

In my opinion, this is the best tasting artificial sweetener. I use it mainly in tea (iced or hot). It has been recommended by doctors as the safest to use.

I have even used this to sweeten my kids oatmeal in the morning and they didn't even realize we didn't use sugar! Very easy to use and tastes great!

Rated 1 out of 5 by GrammaRobin Dislike Stevia, but love Swansonvitamins.com
I had received many recommendations to use Kal Pure Stevia Extract to sweeten foods so I ordered it. When I received it the lid was askew and the protective seal on the bottle was broken and partially opened. I took a chance and tasted it and did NOT like the taste. I was unhappy with the product, but VERY pleased with Swanson's customer service. I was able to return it and was not only reimbursed for the cost of the product, but Swanson also paid the return postage. I will definitely order from Swansonvitamins.com again, but I won't be ordering Stevia :)

I was searching for a stevia product that was pure stevia with no added ingredients such as maltodextrin, etc. I also wanted good flavor without bitterness. This product fills the bill. Great flavor with nothing bad added.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HealthyF Great choice for sweetener
Kal Stevia Extract Powder gives you sweetness you need. I like the fact that no filler, or additive. However, it gives slightly after taste flavor, which I am ok with that. Others may found it in difference tastes depend on how they preferred. Overall, I am happy with the product. I used in Tea, cooking, baking. Great choice of sweetener.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Siahna Best product for your money
pure stevia is the best dietary sugar supplement on the market, it has no after taste. If you are into saving money buy Kal pure Stevia natural extract it contains no other ingredients.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lovinglife 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Heather426 Kal Stevia
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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by sammmy 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.
