    Stevia - It Sucks!

    Someone told me to use Stevia as an alternative to table sugar in my coffee. So I went out and bought a box of packets for $10.45. Let me tell you that it sucks bigtime! It leaves a horrible aftertaste. I am now convinced that nothing beats good old cane sugar.

    Does anybody agree?

    You can buy Stevia without an aftertaste. Some of the lower end companies that make Stevia definately have an aftertaste, but a few companies do make a good product.

    NOW makes a pretty good Stevia product

    Splenda is good. Artificial, but good. Yes, look for a stevia product that has higher rebaudioside content (as opposed to high stevioside content). The latter is very bitter... but sweet. Why the hell did you buy stevia anyway?

    I think she is trying to find a sweetner that doesn't have aspartame / saccahrin
