Better Stevia Extract Powder
Just what I wanted
This stevia is the real thing, not like other products with a label that says 100% Stevia and then turns out to be "cut" with a non-nutrient... like the product I recently bought at Wh Fds. (Check the ingredients label, not just the front.) Swanson's "Now" brand stevia also avoids the metallic tastes of other brands. I buy the 1 pound canister and decant into smaller shakers. Shakers work because it doesn't attract moisture, so doesn't have to be firmly capped.

Like sugar! Taste is wonderful, even in coffee. wish it came in a larger size so I could use it for baking.
Tastes better than other sugar substitutes.

Great product, great price!
This is my favorite brand of pure stevia extract powder - and the price is reasonable.

I love this product!!!
I wanted to reduce my sugar intake, so I ordered NOW Foods Better Stevia. Instead of eating sugary yogurt, I use stevia to sweeten plain yogurt with a little vanilla and some blueberries, and it tastes great! I also use it in green smoothies, and they actually taste delicious! I've already lost some weight and I'm elated!

Same Product; Less Expensive; More Healthful
This appears to be exactly the same product I have been buying retail; only significantly less expensive. I am trying to eat "cleaner" and I use Stevia wherever it works well to replace Sucralose, which is my one, remaining food 'addiction'. Sometimes I use a little of both sweeteners: in tea and cocoa, for example. Stevia alone seems to work especially well on fruits as well as in vegetable dishes when a little sweetness is needed.

Way better than other stevia
I had almost given up on powdered stevia because so many have an awful aftertaste. I read about this on a website so I thought I'd give it a try. Definitely has a pleasant taste. It is very cost effective as a sugar substitute. I like the little serving spoon included, too

Tiny bit goes a long way.
I received prompt delivery of the Stevia Extract powder. I was amazed how little I needed to sweeten my coffee or tea. The amount you use is about the size of a match head.
When I read the servings per bottle I found it hard to believe that one ounce of powder could deliver over 600 servings, well truth be stranger than fiction, because the sweetness concentrate is that powerful.
Thank you for delivering a healthy alternative to some of the less savory diet products that are in the general public.

Not all stevias are created equal
I bought this stevia after using the KAL brand for nearly a year. I was not unhappy with KAL at all, just wanted to try something different and/or less expensive to see how it was.
Unfortunately, this stevia is extremely WEAK compared to KAL. I have to use 2 - 3 times as much to get even close to sweet something.
If this is the only stevia you've ever tried then you might not think much of it since you would be used to using a certain amount to sweeten your items. But if you've tried KAL, you know you can use much less to get the same, or even better, effect.

Best Stevia out there!
I have used Now Stevia for several years now. It is consistently the best! No bitterness whatsoever. And Swanson's price is also the best!

No other ingredients but organic stevia to sweeten my drinks. And less expensive from Swanson than other sources.

Best tasting natural sweetner
We love our stevia and this is the best quality for the price I've found.

I use this product in coffee. It's much better than sugar.

Best Stevia I've Ever Tried
Almost tastes like sugar, even in hot drinks, where most stevia brands fail miserably. I like the measuring spoon inside too. I have a healthy respect for NOW products after using this product.

Better Stevia Extract Powder
I love this product. It made getting off sugar much easier than I anticipated !!
August 5, 2013
It is Better!
I have been using this stevia for several years and it is the best. It is pure, organic, non-GMO and
a little dab will do it! Plus I love the taste.

this product is great, has no fillers like most stevias have. ive seen this exact product at a large health store for double the price that swansons is

This is the best priced Stevia I've found anywhere and I've shopped around. Stevia's wonderful because I like SWEET. I can have my coffee as sweet as I want it with NO calories and its healthy and safe; not like those synthetic sweetners.

A friend told me about this product. My whole family loves it! No complaints from the kids about it tasting different. I am a chef and this is by far the best alternative to sugar I have ever found. No funky aftertastes. With the added bonus of calorie free I would recommend it to anyone.

a little goes a long way
I chose this product because it did not contain anything but stevia. I don't use more than two little scoops most of the time. It does have a tendency to get a little bitter as it ages and it sticks to the scoop. It tastes fine for the most part but there is a slight after taste, but this products works for me because it does not contain silica like the little packets do, and I don't want that in my tea.

Not as sweet as Kal
I've been using Kal pure Stevia extract powder for a couple of years now.. A 3.5 oz jar lasts me a full year. I use it to sweeten my coffee... I recently ran out so decided to give the Now brand a try because it was a little cheaper..
It's actually more expensive because I have to use twice as much to get the same sweetness I get from Kal's..They both come with a little tiny spoon inside.. I use one little spoonful of Kal's, which is perfect, but with the Now, I have to use 2 little spoonful's..
I just placed another order with Swansons and I ordered some Kal's, which I'll be sticking to from now on...
On the plus side, there is no bitter aftertaste with the Now brand, but then again, there isn't with Kal, either...

Good pure stevia
I like this stevia because it is pure and has no other ingredients like sugar alcohols. That's not all that easy to find. This is a good value. It does have a very slight aftertaste but many other flavors that i use it with (chocolate, coffee, etc.) cover that up.

Better than most stevia products
It takes a considerable amount of this stevia for my liking. Although I like things sweeter than most people. My husband only has to use a small amount to achieve his desired amount. The taste

not concentrated/sweet at all
I've used KAL and NuNaturals pure stevia (not the powder mixed with maltodextrin). Every pure stevia concentrate will get bitter if you put too much - this is how stevia works. This NOW Foods powder is so non-concentrated that I have to put 5 times the amount to get some sweetness at all. Of course that means it is very unlikely to get a bitter taste because you have to put a lot of it. Bottom line is: get KAL or NuNaturals pure stevia and don't waste your money with NOW Foods.
