Customer reviewsVery good sweetener for drinks
This is my first stevia product ever i have gestational diabetes and wow is it sweet. Poke a small hole in the paper with a pin or toothpick DO NOT remove the whole paper seal unless your going to put the contents in a shaker or something. Two light shakes from a pin hole is more than enough to sweeten an 8-10 oz cup of tea. It even says on the label that it has approximately 600 servings. It dissolves very quickly in hot or cold water. I wouldn t use it for baking though. I tried a recipe with the stevia in some brownies thinking the dark chocolate would mask the herbal-like taste that accompanies the sweetness of stevia, but I was mistaken. I used unsweetened organic apple sauce to make up for the lost bulk of the missing sugar. It s not that it tasted bad, it just didn t taste right and for me it was off putting. So if you intend on making drinks or other liquids sweet this is the product for you, but don t expect it to mimic sugar in solid foods and desserts especially if you re used to the flavor and texture of real sugar.
