Sweet But Insoluble
I like this product because unlike many stevia products on the market, it is concentrated so a little goes a long way. It is, however, a fine flour-like powder that tends to clump and is hard to dissolve.

Not the best I've used. It leaves a bitter after-taste. It doesn't pour or even spoon very well--clumpy.

Stevia Powder haiku
Sweet, but not sugar
Natural, not artificial
Try it, you'll like it

Really have to be careful to get just enough. Too little isn't sweet enough and too much is way too bitter. And it's hard too tell what's just enough. Everyone's taste is different. Just isn't easy to use.

Not as good as expected
Found this product to be very sticky and difficult to measure. Also, not as sweet as Now Better stevia powder. Had to use two to three times more for the same sweetness as Now.

BEST EVER natural sweetener!!!
LOVE having a natural sweetener that is SAFE!! Would never take artificial sweeteners like Equal, Sweet n Low, etc. Taste terrible and help you gain weight, not take it off!

it really considered a powdered form of stevia.
i use it along with soy beans to made soy milk. a heaping table spoon to a quart of soy milk gives a sweet taste to the milk. and you can't beat the price of milk -- a reduction of 50%.

Stevia - Swanson brand
I have purchased this item several times from Swanson - That is a statement in itself - repeat business is the true test! It is smooth tasting and I do not find it bitter - Thanks Swanson for a quality product!

Dissolves very well. Use it exclusively when I make iced tea.

Better Option for me
I have been using another stevia product for years that included maltodextrin. I stopped using it recently and switched to the Swanson brand that doesn't contain maltodextrin. It doesn't taste as sweet, but is sufficient. But the thing I really noticed is that I do not crave sweet things all day any longer. I believe the added maltodextrin caused me to crave sweets. Very happy I switched. Also, the price is excellent.

Stevia - Oh What a Gift
I do love my stevia; both liquid and powder. It makes my tea just the right sweet, makes baked goods fabulous and is all around not bad for you. Cool!!

I have been quite consistently pleased with this 4-oz powder Stevia from Swanson as a way to use in place of sugar, especially when price is around $4.30 per jar.

Just love this product! So easy to use!!

All natural? extract? other ingredients
I bought the product because I was not reading the label carefully. I just read the ingredients. But there are other ingredients, that I missed. These include Fibersol®-2 is a registered trademark of Matsutani America a corn product. When I buy stevia I want an all natural product. not trademarked processed corn. It says stevia extract, but it should say standardized otherwise it is not clear. It is much less sweet than other products I had, and it does not taste good either.

I wished I would have ordered More
This stevia by far is the best I have ever used. It just sweetens everything much better with using less. I think I will order the larger one the next time because it is super potent and it is very delicious. Thanks Swanson for another great product.

I found this to be very bitter, even adding just a touch to recipies leaves everything I make tasteing awfull. I really would not recommend this product. But the xylitol and the coconut palm sugar work great.

I Was Very Disappointed
I was very disappointed in this product. I was expecting something labeled "Stevia Extract" to be PURE stevia extract. This product is less than 10% pure stevia extract--the rest is filler and it doesn't even taste all that good. I ended up giving it away. Wish I had read the label a little more closely before ordering this. Two thumbs down.

Swanson's stevia powder
So pleased with this product that I'm writing my first Swanson's review. This is the best stevia powder I've tried. The flavor is excellent and it dissolves easily in my tea. It should last a long time since it only takes about 1/8 teaspoon to sweeten a large cup of tea. Unlike this powder, the ones I've tried in the past didn't dissolve and a green powder floated to the top, leaving little sweetener in the tea itself.

Good Quality and Price
This is probably the most economical stevia product I've used. It takes very little to create sweetness in a drink. The label says to use a 1/2 teaspoon in a cup of coffee, but the amount would be so sweet my teeth would chatter! I use 1/8th of a teaspoon and it's plenty sweet. It does take a little stirring to get it completely dissolved but that's only because it has a little bit of sweet fiber which is good. I find the taste neutral, just sweet. I'm now on my second jar, the first seemed to last forever. This is a good product.

the product taste very bitter, truvia is much better.

Don't know why this product has to have a new giant sized jar for the same amount. (I transferred from the new jar to the old) Plus, it does not dissolve near as well in hot coffee, and even with stirring, still does not completely dissolve, as it did before. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
