Pure Stevia Natural Extract
Misleading, Not Pure
Apparently Kal changed their product ingredients. This stevia now has added Maltodextrin. Maltodextrin is made from treated corn, rice or potato starch then mixed with chemicals and enzymes to form the ingredient. Maltodextrin is as bad or worse than sugar. This product is not pure stevia as the label states. I wish I would have read the list of ingredients before purchasing. I will not ingest this product, looking for PURE liquid stevia. Wasted my money on this product.

This is the ONE!
I have tried other brands, for the price and quality, this is excellent. Dropper works perfect if the product is warm or cold, formula is consistent. I use this as the only sweetener in baking (some recipes need to be modified to make up for the lost bulk by not using sugar), hot cocoa, fruit and veggie juices, smoothies. Oh, and bonus, I can reuse the bottles/droppers for art paints and for DIY skin treatments/cosmetics.

no bitter taste with this
I love this product. It has no bitter taste. I think it tastes just like sugar. I have used this product for five years.

Sweet with no funky aftertaste
The trick to a good-tasting Stevia product is the carrier that the manufacturer chooses to use. Ground Stevia is powdery, so it's difficult to use, so they all add some sort of carrier. This is where I found the funky tastes to come in. I've actually had to dispose of some powdered Stevia I bough. Kal's liquid tastes sweet with no odd taste. And I love the liquid form with no alcohol. With the eye dropper, I can exactly control the amount of sweetness I want. I've been happily using this for a couple years now.

I bought this for a friend who didn't like the bitter taste of a well know liquid stevia she was using. She said the taste of Kal stevia is definitely preferable.

Love Kal Stevia
I've been using Kal Stevia for over 3 years, I'll never go back to sugar. The drops are great for Lemon water, changes it to a great LemonAde, that even my kids love.

No bitter aftertaste. Last a very long time even with daily use.

Great product with no bad stuff. I was appauled to read the label on another brand I've using to find out it is 20% grain alcohol. I'm done with that one.

This has been the best stevia I have found. Some packets of Stevia contain a form of corn, some other liquid brands contain alcohol, or "natural Flavor" For me this has been the purest I have tried.

favorite stevia yet
this is the first liquid variant i've used. actually only second stevia product i've used, first being stevia in the raw. from what i read, no powder is free from the aftertaste. and it's not that good. this stuff doesn't have that, that i can notice. it's more convenient for drinks since it's liquid. my only issue is the dropper. it doesn't seem to be air tight and when it's pulled from the bottle it slowly drips without squeezing the bulb. but that's fine. the product itself is exactly what i wanted.

Best tasting stevia period! Similar to taste of honey seriously - puts other stevias to shame. Love the convenience of drops. You only need small amount so very economical also. I use 6 drops in cup of coffee or tea - heavenly!

Great Stevia Choice
No alcohol, great taste, thin consistancy. Great choice!

All Of The Bitter, None Of The Sweet
I have used liquid stevia for years, but recently couldn't find the brand I normally use. So I bought this kind, based on the reviews. Three bottles, unfortunately. I normally use 5 drops in a big tumbler of tea, but there was absolutely no sweetness in my tea at that level. I added two more drops, and got a hint of sweetness - with an overwhelmingly taste of bitterness, something I'd only ever experienced the one time I tried to make cranberry sauce using stevia.
All three bottles will be shipped back to Swanson. Thank goodness for their 100% Guarantee / Refund policy.

This is great! I've tried others, but really like this. I finally found one I can stick wtih. It's so very convenient, & absolutely no mess at all. It's great in hot or iced tea. I even use it in plain hot water & there's no odd taste, just sweetness. I love that there's no alcohol, either. I'm just really pleased with every aspect of this!

Love this.... it is my usual stevia selection- I've tried others, and this is the one. Not messy,no bitter taste. and NO alcohol.... which is great. The price on this site was half the cost of what I usually pay at the health store. Recommend!

I have used several liquid stevia brands and this won wins the prize, hands down! It is a GREAT product. Will ALWAYS use it. Great value for the money. Last forever! Would highly recommend.

Try it with anything! It works with everything for me! Cereal, tea with coconut milk, baked goods, ice cream,I mean anything....So don't restrict yourself to only using it for sour items.

So great they took it!
By far the best stevia ive tried liquid or otherwise! Its so good that when i took it with me on a trip my family hid it from me in hopes i wouldnt take it home :p. I ended up leaving my first bottle with them and ordering another right away.
I really like how it never comes out with a bitter bite or aftertaste. It has a great texture not watery but not gloopy either. Very easy to get out of the dropper. And for a bottle with so many servings its very easy to travel with. The fatc that it is alcohol free adds even more to the conveinience factor becaue you can add it to cold drinks without any funky watered down long island taste.
The value here cannot be beat. Both times i purchased several months apart it was at the same sale price. Even swansons regular prie beats where i can buy it here by almost 10 dollors! A true deal for sure.

This is the very best Stevia I have found! I don't use any other brand.

Best of the Bunch
I tried a number of liquid stevia products that Swanson sells, and this one stands heads above the rest. It measures accurately (not messy like the thick syrupy kind), it's clear, there is no odd aftertaste, and it works just like the directions say it should. And the price can't be beat! This is the liquid stevia for me.
