So much sweeter than sugar, and look it up, it is a leaf, that gives very good health benefits to you, not like splenda , and the other sweeteners, finally they got wise. Stevia on the shelfs in the food stores. So so sweet. Sugar never again. Go for it!

I prefer xylitol as most stevia leaves a bitter aftertaste.
Erythritol and Monk fruit are also good, natural, alternative sweetners. :)

don't really know which stevia it is your referring to. Stevia is a leaf, and it is a natural sweetener, however it is done. It does not have a bitter taste, and comes in packages like splenda. Although some could go or grow the plant, which is not the store bought one. Of course then it will taste different. It is much more sweeter than sugar, if you look it up, it has lots of health benefits, to your body. Anything God created is good, man's creation, hm, maybe not so good. Enjoy what ever works for you. To some it might taste different as in food tasting, lol everyone says, something different, it could be the enzymes in your saliva, and the foods that are eaten. God bless with health, :)

I just use sugar in the raw or honey for a sweetener (at times, especially with coffee) but try to avoid artificial sweeteners (heard too many bad things about them). Stevia is new to me and if it has good health benefits, I just may have to try it. :)

I don't use artificial sweetners either. Honey is a more natural choice.Stevia, xylitol, Monk fruit and erythritol are all natural sweetners. I also buy an erythritol/ Monk fruit mix by 'Krisda' that's great!
They also make a brown sugar substitute, syrups, and chocolate chips. :)

Krisda has a brown sugar replacement made with Monk fruit. Is a natural sweetener also.
I've also used xylitol mixed with black strap molasses for that yummy Brown sugar taste. (1c xylitol, 1tsp molasses).

havn't talked with you for a while. HOW are You. Will go and take a look there. Honey is like an allergy medicine, almost kind of, from the polllen. VERRRRYYYY GOOD for YOu,
Hi Kalyna! :D I was being sarcastic about those prices. I don't know what the normal prices of organic honey or olive oil is, but I'm used to the prices of the regular stuff, which is only a fraction of those prices. I know honey is really good for you too. I'm doing ok. I'm glad you remember me! :D Hope you are doing well too. :)
