4 of 4 people found the following review helpfulJune 01, 2007Reviewer: Rosemary in California* This is great brand of stevia. I was not sold on stevia until I tried the Sweetleaf powder. It is much better for you than the artificial sweeteners.
3 of 4 people found the following review helpfulJanuary 09, 2007Reviewer: Janice in Canada* Stevia is 300 times sweeter than sugar, but with no sugar. The Sweetleaf Stevia Powder is absolutley the best! I've been using Stevia to replace sugar in my diet for over 6 years, and I've tried every brand and type of Stevia. Many have been cut with other ingrediants which make them bitter. But this one is perfect! No bitterness. If you've been disappointed with other Stevia brands, try this one - it's the best.

May 11, 2013Reviewer: Scott in Indiana* Sweetleaf is one of the few brands that stays true to delivering a clean and healthy product. It's amazing how little it takes to sweeten an entire batch of cookies (1/2 teaspoon for a batch of 40 almond cookies!!!). It beats the other sweeteners in a lower carb count (0), and it tastes so much better and without any nasty aftertaste that other brands and other sweeteners have. Stevia is natural (comes from a plant) and this brand doesn't treat or process it with nasty chemicals or bond it with maltodextrin or other unsafe artificial sweeteners that some other brands do. I can't recommend it highly enough! Look for brands that don't add things to sweetleaf or hurt the taste. Sweetleaf if my favorite so far.
It's also incredibly cheap. If you consider it's 300 times sweeter than real sugar (and without the carbs and it's natural), this is one of the best things you can buy for a low carb diet. This one small container will likely last me an entire year!
January 20, 2013Reviewer: A customer in Connecticut* The label says no aftertaste but it's still bitter.
December 13, 2009Reviewer: Mary in Kansas* No unpleasant taste or after-taste! I am impressed.This review is specific to Stevia Extract Powder
February 20, 2009Reviewer: Shawn in New Jersey* I love Stevia!!! It's the best sweetener. I QUESTION THE POWDER LABEL.
In trying to figure out which is more economical (powder vs liquid) I found some problems with the information provided. The information states:
liquid - 2 drops of liquid = 1 tsp. sugar 2 drops = 1 serving 1200 servings per bottle = 1200 tsp sugar 1200 tsp = 24.765 cups 24.765/$15 = 1.651 cups per dollar
powder - 1/3 tsp. = 1 cup sugar 1/40 tsp = 1 serving (25 mg) 1000 servings per bottle = 1000/40 = 25 tsp 25 tsp powder = 75 cups of sugar
HOWEVER!!!!!!!!! Standard Measurment 4 grams = 1 tsp the bottle contains 25 grams = 5.27 tsp 5.27 tsp powder = 15.81 cups of sugar 15.81 /$10 = 1.58 cups per dollar
This seems to be a contradiction if I calculated correctly. I don't know where they get the 25g = 17.5 lbs of sugar either. That would be 35 cups of sugar.
Conclusion: The liquid is a slightly better value. However, I think the label for the powder is misleading by my 1st calculation. Basically the label is saying there is 25 teaspoons of powder in the bottle. If this is the case, then that should be 100 grams.
Please correct me if I made a mistake.
February 15, 2010Reviewer: evlyn in Ohio* I tried the powder form of this product. I used about 1/4 of the little 1/5 tsp. scoop that came in the "Sugar NOT" product, which is also sold on this site. I tried it in coffee and Iced Tea, and both times ended up with a bitter tasting drink. I think that I will try baking with it before I get rid of it. Maybe I am doing something wrong, but at this point I wouldn't but this form of Stevia again. Pro... you do get a lot of product because you use so little.This review is specific to Stevia Extract Powder
