Better Stevia Certified Organic Extract
Biggest Bang for the Buck!
I love to put in about 1/4 teaspoon in replacement of 1/2 cup of sugar! No other non-calorie sweetener is allowed by my doctor except Stevia - for good reasons! If there is a bitter after taste, I know I've used too much, and cut back more the next time. This is amazing stuff!

the best stevia I've found
This is the best stevia I've found. I like the discounted large size, but the price has gone up recently. Wish it would come back down.

This is the best deal for stevia anywhere, period. Lasts a year for most people.

Very good product at a very good price.

I have started using stevia in everything I need to sweeten. This is a great tasting bulk stevia

Better Stevia is the best!
This is the purest stevia, recommended by our doctor. I use it in every food and drink that needs sweetening.

Very good pure stevia
This is the only pure stevia I've found - even at swanson. It has absolutely no additives. all you need is a little little bit, and it does the trick. very good value and quality for the money. Don't be afraid to buy.

Cost Effective Beyond Belief!
This is so cost effective beyond belief and once again Swanson's! I have tried several of the stevias NOW brand is one we love. We use stevia daily in everything just about. We would be in the poor house without deals like Swansons cost and Now Foods in this economy size give us.

We buy this one to refill our smaller Stevia containers. Very cost effective and the quality is great.

I think this product is excellent for the following reaons:
1) Sweet flavor is very neutral, no bitterness or other strong aftertaste.
2) Very powerful, just a bit can improve any kind of food that works well with sweetness. This is especially handy if you add no salt to your dish.
3) Best deal in terms of g per $ to my knowledge.
4) Since this is an extract, choosing organic is a must to make sure the extraction process does not concentrate pesticides.
If you do not use much, you may want to split the container in smaller ones to avoid clumping of stevia because of humidity.

The Sweet Life
My family's main beverage is a combination of green and herbal teas. I love the convenience of the large jar of Stevia we buy from Swanson. It allows easy measuring and assures my loved ones have a healthy alternative to soda and other artificially sweetened drinks. We love the non-bitter aspect of this Stevia. It's been a staple part of our eating plan for several years nowl

Have tried several brands until I found NOW!!
Love, love,love this stevia! Have recommended to many already! Use very little (barely cover tip of a teaspoon), and you get the sweetness you desire with no after taste! I carry it with me in a miget plastic container. Use it for coffee, tea, homemade lemonade. Add vanilla and a little stevia to plain yogurt. Can add to recipes too!

A skeptic is converted!
I had all but given up hope on stevia...every brand I tried, even those rated to be so great at no aftertaste had that awful aftertaste to it anyway and just did not sweeten enough (I'm from the south...ya'll know what sweet tea is, right?) Anyway, my order arrrived and I just happened to have some coffee ready...and lo and behold, it did sweeten it enough without the aftertaste! Now, nothing beats real sugar for taste, but in this I have finally found an acceptable substitute that is so much better for my health. That tiny little scoop had me thinking I was going to use it up within a week, but this really seems to sweeten well enough that it should last me for a while...certainly enough to say that at Swanson's price, I found the sweetener for me! Just remember, with Stevia, slowly increase the amount you use until you get the level of sweet you want, because there is a magic line you cross and then it does taste "chemically".
March 23, 2012
I use Stevia in everything. Have your cake or anything else and eat it to. A little sprinkle goes a long, long, long, way. Because of the pleasure of enjoying sweet stuff without the guilt it's one of those ingredients that's worth it's weight in gold.

The purest form of Stevia with no additives such as Maltodextrin or other fillers found in most Stevias.
January 30, 2012
I love and use this product daily especially in my caffe latte drinks I create for myself and guests in my home. Once I saw this amazing size I knew I had to have it. And once I saw the savings (difference in price from the local stores to here) I realized I could buy more coffee! Thanks Swanson!

intense sweetness;no bitter aftertaste
October 15, 2011
I use this product to sweeten lemonade made from lemon juice and water and my breakfast smoothie. I also use it in recipes that do not require bulk from sugar. It does not have any after taste and is a thrifty way to order stevia.

A+ for being organic! This stevia product is probably a good one as far as the powder form goes, but we didn't care for it anyway due to the flavor. (We haven't tried any other brands of stevia.) I understand from other reviews that liquid products have a better chance of more satisfactory flavor. This product did have a funny taste in whatever you put it in, and then there was the dreaded aftertaste after you were finished. (At least it wasn't a very STRONG aftertaste at all.) In addition, I realize that most all articles say that stevia has no affect whatsoever on blood sugar, but I don't believe it because it isn't true for me. It doesn't agree with me. It's true that it doesn't seem to cause an obvious quick rise in blood sugar like sugar does; however, it does cause me to later on have a DROP in blood sugar, and then start to get weak and jittery and need food soon, just like sugar would in the same circumstance.

Sweet and no calories!
I add this pure form of Stevia to my Nustevia powder to beef up the sweetness--this way I use less to get the same amount of sweet flavor--it's great!

A Great Stevia Product
There is a lot of Stevia here: according to the label, over 10,000 little scoops. This is enough Stevia to last a long time, and the price is about the best you will find anywhere. I use it in coffee, tea, and even in homemade food (such as baked goods). It is a potent Stevia extract, so a little goes a long way, although it is not as potent as other white Stevia extract products I have tried.
The main problem with this product is the package is inconvenient. I suggest using some smaller container to store the Stevia in for regular use (I use an old small container of NOW Stevia).
Overall, this product is a fine, inexpensive, Stevia.

Not as potent
This stevia powder doesn't seem to be as potent as others I've bought in the past - I find I need to use a heaping mini spoonful rather than a level one for my morning coffee. However, unadulterated stevia is becoming increasingly difficult to find, and this is certainly the best price around.

Stevia - 1 pound
I love this!
I get this, the large 1 pound size, and cut a triangle pour hole in the inside lid covering so I can easily pour it into the smaller bottle I originally got. So easy and affordable!
Thank you Swanson's. This is the BEST price I have found!
I will be back!
