SweetLeaf Sweetener Stevia
The issue is value
This stevia tastes fine, but in terms of value I like Better Stevia so much better. It also tastes great, but only requires a very small amount. I had to use at least 4 times the amount for the same sweetness than Better Stevia. Since the 4 oz Better Stevia costs only about 2 times as much ... well, you do that math.

Sweet leaf stevia
This is the best Stevia on the market. Will always but it.

Wonderful sugar substitute that is natural rather than artificial, is non-gmo, satisfies that desire for sweets, does not hurt teeth because it is not sugar, has no calories, and, no after taste.

Not as Good as I Was Told
I read where this stevia product was simply wonderful, healthy and reasonably priced. While the price per ounce is much better than the KAL Pure Stevia I was using, the Sweetleaf product is way less sweet and I have to use at least twice the amountI I would with KAL so that negates much of the price advantage. You need to buy at least two bottles of sweetleaf to match one KAL so I don't think I'll purchase sweetleaf again.

Real Stevia w/out Unhealthy additives
My husband was using NuNaturals brand of stevia until I read the ingredients. So I talked to friends and did some research and the SweetLeaf brand is probably the best stevia without bad additives. And no aftertaste!

The BEST on the market
I've used a lot of sugar substitutes and this one is THE BEST on the market.
Tastes great. No bitter aftertaste. Better than sugar.

How sweet it is...
After trying several products from various sources this is now my "standard" stevia and general sweetener. It tastes great and has no noticeable aftertaste. We use it for everything almost eliminating refined sugar.

I use this product daily in my coffee and tea. I also have used it in almond flour brownies. A little goes a long way. It only takes a very small amount to sweeten coffee or tea. I still have not found the exact correctness in my brownies, but I will certainly keep trying. YUM!

Perfect for iced tea
We use this to sweeten our decalf green tea - great taste and just the right amount of sweetness. Best of all, it's natural and good for you.

Powder not extract
This is a great tasting stevia product, but be aware it is powder, not extract, so you need more for making home-made "truvia"

Excellent quality product!
It is what I use in everything that needs sugar. Here at Swanson, I can get it for a very decent price, lowest price...

I loved the convenience of just sprinkling the stevia from a container rather than the individual packets which you had to open. With the packets sometimes I would not have to use the whole thing but this left some to be spilled. However the pouring holes are a little large so you have to be careful that you don't use too much. I loved it though as it tastes just like sugar. Grace

How sweet it is!
This is the best stevia product at the best price. Buy two at a time, just in case.

Great alternative to sugar and chemical sweeteners. I keep the handy packets in my purse and the container on the counter. I don't find any bitter taste left from hot or cold foods or drinks. I used to use KALPure Stevia brand until I realized there was food additives chemicals of maltodextrin and calcium silicate. If you want a clean and healthy sweetener then SweetLeaf Stevia is it!

Was looking for a good stevia product without it being mixed with other unhealthy fillers, this product seems to fit my needs, taste good and be priced well, much cheaper than I can find it locally

I buy this one because nearly all the others have maltodextin, which is usually made from corn. Since 85% of corn is GMO, I don't want any of that in my stevia powder. Unless the label states the maltodextrin is made from something other than corn or is organic, I will avoid it. This has an OK taste, but it is not as good tasting as sugar and a lot more expensive. So I am still looking for something better.

Overall I'm very pleased with this brand of Stevia. I've tried this and have compared it to a store bought brand (Stevia in the Raw) and this clearly has no aftertaste. I've used it in my iced tea and it sweetens but does not impart an aftertaste like the SITR does (although I don't find the aftertaste of the SITR to necessarily be unpleasant).
I've read reviews where some claim that SweetLeaf can get bitter when used in *heated* foods/beverages. But I've used it in my oats, grits, and spaghetti sauce and there is just an added sweetness with no discernible aftertaste/bitterness at all. An aftertaste would certainly be noticeable in a light tasting food such as grits.
So this is my "go to" brand of Stevia at the moment. I'm ordering NOW Foods "Better Stevia Extract Powder" from Swanson to give it a try because I've read good reviews about it. It's *pure*, no additives. But I also happen to like the way SweetLeaf uses a prebiotic to help with flow, clumping, measuring, and plus the inulin is just plain good for you.
Another thing SweetLeaf has going for it is that it is indeed sweet. There are some brands where you have to add more than the recommended to achieve the sweetness of 2 teaspoons of sugar. Not so with this brand.
My only gripe with SweetLeaf is that it can be a bit pricey. But I suppose that can be attributed to it's processing, using only pure water for extraction. Wisdom Natural must know something about what it's doing since it's founder, James May, is coined "The Father of Stevia", the one who pioneered Stevia in the US.
As a side note, beware of KAL brand "Pure Stevia Organic Extract". I've read reviews where they were in contention for being "the best" at one time, but they've made a change to their product and the results are very disappointing.

Excellent, This is the best for coffee. I use it daily and love it. No after taste
May 24, 2012
It gave my lemonade an artificial sweetener taste. Yikes! Also, I did not think it provided as much sweetness as promised; I don't like sweet drinks but to break the tartness of the lemon juice, I had to add a LOT of this product to a glass of water. I will use it up but I won't be repurchasing.

best non-sugar sweetener
This same Stevia - SweetLeaf - is sold at my local health food store and grocery store for much more money. It's the best Stevia sweetener I have ever used - it's not bitter and has a very good flavor.

Love this product!
I use SweetLeaf Stevia every day on my morning cereal and can't tell the difference from real sugar.

I love Sweetleaf stevia - it's the best I've used! I like the packets, but when I need a lot of it I like this product so that I'm not tearing open tons of packets. And it's great for cooking - the conversion rate they give you really works! Defintely would recommend!

Best stevia product
I use this in lemondade and tea. It has no after taste and I consider it the best stevia product available. The added fiber is a plus too. I don't bake with it but only use it as a general sweetner. I trust the stevia plant above all other sweetners out there.
