        Used to buy a "NoCarbs Blend, Non-Bitter Zero Calories" stevia product from an online company. The product was good, I just thought I could find something as good and for a lesser price. After searching the net I found Pure Stevia Extract from Kal. I was hesitant to try it at first, since I have been using my previous product for years but, boy, I am so glad I did. The pure stevia from Kal does exactly what it says. I've found it to be the best for taste, quality and price. Just a little goes a long way & this is actually a 3.5 oz size bottle, not 3 oz as stated on the ad. It is pure with NO fillers and other "stuff" added - just good tasting pure stevia. I strongly recommend this product! and no! I was not paid for my review. I am just a very happy consumer and like to share my finding with others, specially those who are diabetic.

        I've been ordering this Stevia for years because it was the only one I could find that was pure Stevia. I used to recommend it to everyone, but not anymore. Now they have suddenly started adding Maltodextrin! I'm EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED!!! It was perfect as it was - WHY CHANGE THE FORMULA and ADD JUNK?? It doesn't taste as good as it used to, and now it's just like all the other Stevia products on the market - NOT PURE STEVIA. If they did it to raise their profit margin, it was a bad decision. I would rather pay more and get something pure. Now they have lost a loyal customer. I will start searching again for pure Stevia - maybe its time to start making my own.

        Why does this so-called "pure" product contain Maltodextrin?

              Comments about KAL Pure Stevia Extract - 3 Ounces Powder:

              I had used KAL Pure Stevia for several years, and recommended it in my recipe books and on my online magazine. I no longer recommend it, because the company that makes it has ruined it by adding Maltodextrin to it, which is not good for health, and which completely obliterates the advantages of using stevia in the first place. Stevia is low on the glycemic scale, but maltodextrin is sky-high on the glycemic scale.

              The "organic" stevia that KAL makes. which they say is a pure product without anything added, is a greenish-brown colored powder and is not palatable. I preferred their original "Pure" white stevia, but apparently that never was pure, and contained Maltodextrin without saying so on the label.

              I am now using Sweet Leaf Stevia instead, as it is pure, with nothing else added.

              Shame on KAL for being so unresponsive to what customers are asking for. I don't know how they are able to stay in business.

                  Bought it for years. Best tasting Stevia product I tried.

                  Recently, KAL added maltodextrin to increase it's profit margin. Still being sold as PURE Stevia, without notification on the label, only on the fine print on the back. Now comes from China, sold at the same price for an inferior product.

                    I have been using this product for years and on the bottle it use to say no other ingredients. Just bought another bottle , same label saying Pure stevia however under other ingredients it says maltodextrin!! I am allergic to maltodextrin. I called KAL and the said if I want the pure Stevia I need to buy the organic one. The made this change in the past year. I told them they should not advertise it as being pure stevia on the label if it isn't.

                    I give this product the lowest ranking possible because they are adding Maltodextrin!!! Watch out folks! Don't be fooled (like I was) by the word "Pure" in the description. I also alerted Vitamin Shoppe to update their online description to include Maltodextrin in the product ingredients label for this.

                        This is great! I use it in my iced tea (7-8 tiny 'scoops' per gallon) where I used to use 1/2 cup of sugar plus & lightly sprinkle in my coffee. I hate the taste of artificial sweeteners but this only took a few days to get used to. Love it!

                          I have been happily using KAL Pure Stevia Extract Powder for several years. Stevia, in little green packets, mixed with Sucrose has appeared in the marketplace in the past 6-12 months. The green packet way costs about fifteen cents for one relatively weak serving. I need two packets to sweeten my coffee sufficiently or thirty cents cost. I like the KAL way at less than one penny per serving and one serving per cup.

                                  Not the worst--but no longer the best.

                                    KAL is the only brand of pure Stevia extraxt powder that I will use. It has a nice sweet taste with no after taste. I use it in coffee, cereal, greek yogurt deserts and in anything I want to make sweeter.

                                          More like a question. I can't seem to lose any weight, and I know it's not my eating habits. HOWEVER, I tend to drink a lot of coffee and tea during the day, and can use up to 4 tsps. of sugar. ( your talking at least 40 teaspoons daily ) I have a feeling this is the reason for my weight. I love my tea and coffee. Does this Stevia take the place? what are the chances of losing weight with it? please help thank you

                                          I use this as a sweetener in coffee and other beverages. I tried using it in deserts, but the taste is unpleasant compared to sugar. I like that it has been favorably suggested to not only replace sugar but several sources suggest it may even help keep blood sugar level. After a few weeks I'm still trying to get used to the taste. It's slightly unpleasant to me. Initially the taste is identical to sugar, but there is a strange aftertaste.

                                            I've been trying to eliminate sugar from my diet, and it is not easy, but since I started using this Stevia it's been helping a LOT!!!! A incredibly small amount makes a huge difference to anything you eat. I can add 1 tiny scoop (The scoop that's in the bottle) and it completely replaces all the sugar that I've been putting in my coffees through creamers. I can't say enough about how much I love it. Plus, the large bottle is an amazing price it'll last me at least 6 months before I need more, probably longer.

                                              Comments about KAL Pure Stevia Extract - 3 Ounces Powder:

                                              As the author of raw vegan recipe books (such as The Little Book of Raw Vegan Holiday Recipes), I switched to stevia as my sweetener when I discovered KAL Pure Stevia. I had tried other stevia products, but I didn't like their taste, and/or I didn't like the other ingredients in them.

                                              KAL Pure Stevia works really well in all of my recipes, from raw vegan ice cream to pies, puddings, dehydrator-made cookies, and more. As other reviewers have noted, it brings no bad aftertaste. I use just a tiny bit, because it's very sweet and you don't need much.

                                              This container comes with a tiny white spoon inside, which looks to be around 1/16th of a teaspoon. I make all of my own food (because there are no raw vegan restaurants in my area), and the container I bought more than a year ago is still at least 1/3 full. So, as you can see, it lasts a long time.

                                              I recommend KAL Pure Stevia all the time, in my recipe books, on my online newsmagazine (RawFoodsNewsMagazine.com), and in my social media posts. I know this sounds like an advertisement for KAL, but I'm passionate about their stevia, because it's so much better for our health than conventional sweeteners like sugar, artificial sweeteners, the very-high-in-fructose agave nectar, and even honey, which is high on the glycemic scale.

                                              I wish I could get more dessert makers to use KAL Pure Stevia instead of whatever other sweeteners they're using!

                                              In my quest to eliminate artification sweetners and sugar from by diet, I began using Stevia. I've tried many brands, all of which possess a horrible aftertaste. I was in a health store lamenting the horrible aftertaste of Stevia which threatened to jeopordize my efforts to eliminate the foregoing when a patron suggested this brand. This was 3 years ago. I've used it since. It has virtually no aftertaste. The diminimus taste that it does have is highly palatable. It's more expensive that other brands but it's worth it.

                                                  I have tried many types of stevia and this one is by far my favorite. I use it multiple times a day. Stevia is definitely an acquired taste and only a very little bit is needed. The Vitamin Shoppe offers the best price that I have found and has always been in stock when I needed.

                                                  This is The Best. It only takes a "light dusting" of this powder to really sweeten...and no bitterness unless you're heavy-handed and use too much. And, now I've found that plain ol' sugar just doesn't have the right amount of sweetness! I wonder what they've done to the sugar now. KAL please don't change it, pretty please. :)

                                                    The value of this product for me is its consistency in strength and quality. I can count on a specific measure to furnish consistent sweetness.

                                                      I mainly use KAL stevia (no added ingredients) in hot and cold drinks, but have also used it in some cooking recipies where sugar is required, such as a homemade miracle whip type of dressing. I have also baked 3 types of dessert with it and liked the end product, although it isn't the same taste as a true sugary dessert. It seems stevia can be an acquired taste, but I enjoyed this brand the first time I had it in iced tea. There is no after taste. I am thrilled to finally enjoy a sweet drink without any calories and yet it is not an artificial sweetner. I have not tried a different stevia product because I enjoy this one and have no cons to report.

                                                        You can use this product to sweeten anything hot or cold; use for baking (I use it alone in my batters..no sugar, sugar product, or toxic man made sugar substitute) and nobody can tell the difference. It's 100& stevia, no additives. There is no aftertaste and the powder is easy to use. I put some in a smaller container to carry in my purse and it is so convenient. Be careful about the brands that regular retail stores cary now that stevia is more on the 'regular' market as many of them have bulking additives or other and there is no need to consume that.

                                                            I am trying to break artificial sweetener use. I had been able to except for my morning coffee, while I was able to reduce the amount of 'pink stuff' i was not able to go without - i tried this because of the great reviews - I have tried all kinds of replacements and I just can't palate most of them - this was AWESOME! It is all natural and has very little aftertaste - I highly recommend. I use one tiny scoop for 10C of coffee, it sweetens it perfectly for me. I have used it on other things that need a hint of sweetness and have been very pleased as well.

                                                              The latest one I bought seems to be different. It doesn't dissolve as good and seems inferior to what I had been getting. I am disappointed. It's still some of the best on the market. I have tried the organic version and it is bitter, unfortunately. I don't know why, but I was extremely disappointed in that because I would rather use the organic.

                                                              On the basis of its good online reviews, I purchased some KAL Pure Stevia Extract (powder) through the Vitamin Shoppe website. Upon receipt, I was very disturbed to see a "Product of China" label on the bottle. China is notorious for extending their foodstuffs with dangerous materials like melamine - witness the cat food debacle of a few years ago, in which cat foods made with melamine-contaminated ingredients from China caused kidney failure and death to cats around the world. Last year, melamine in dog food ingredients sourced from China had the same result. Most recently, baby formulas were found to be contaminated with the stuff.

                                                              I thought KAL was made in the US and subject to food safety regulations. Guess not. I've written to the company, but have not yet received a reply.

                                                              Is anyone else bothered by this?

                                                              Best Answer: Maltodextrin is the other listed ingredient... it can be enzymatically derived from any starch. In the US, this starch is usually corn; in Europe, it is commonly wheat. While wheat-derived maltodextrin may cause concern for individuals suffering from gluten intolerance, maltodextrin is such a highly processed ingredient that the majority of the protein is removed, rendering it effectively gluten-free.[citation needed] If wheat is used to make maltodextrin, it will appear on the label. Even so, the maltodextrin itself will be gluten-free.[3][

                                                              How much of this would you use to sweeten a 2-quart pitcher of drink? What is the ratio if you would like to substitute stevia powder for sugar?

                                                              Best Answer: This stevia powder is primo and very concentrated without bitterness- sugar is extinct for me. Anyway, I would say, for a cup of coffee I use one quick shake of powder from the SMALLER bottle- not the big 3.5 oz one. It's merely a light dusting of the stuff for a cup of strong coffee and I like mine SWEET. I think alot of people use too much and say it's bitter. It's not. Just try it in a cup and see how sweet you like it. I never use the miniscule spoon in there because it's too much for a cup. Go step by step, slowly and don't overdo it. It's difficult to advise on sweetness- everyone if different..but this stuff lasts forever..and I love it!

Your description on line does not show any; however, I know Kal has recently started adding Maltodextrin, so just trying to assure this is from product before their latest change?

                                                              Best Answer: Kal brand Stevia is one of the VERY few manufacturers who do not add anything to their Pure Stevia product. They have a Stevia product with fiber added, but the PURE STVEIA EXTRACT is labeled just that, PURE. I cannot prove anything beyond what is on the label however. But it is the only one that actually tastes like Stevia to us.
                                                              Use it sparingly to start with as I found it flavorful and good. Now I love it. A good healthy scoop is what I now use. God Bless you.

                                                              how many servings per container for this product?

                                                              Best Answer: The 3-ounce bottle says 'serving size 1 scoop, 2381 servings' but does not state the actual volume/measure/amount of the teeny, tiny scoop. i measured years ago, and found it to be equal to about 1/32 of a teaspoon. i found a conversion table that says 1/2 tsp stevia extract powder = 1/2 cup white sugar. All the math makes my head hurt. ;-) We use it primarily in small increments for sweetening beverages, homemade salad dressings, etc. and it lasts about 3 months for 2 people. We selected this brand several years ago, after trying many different brands and types. We like it because it is PURE Stevia EXTRACT, with no fillers and no bitter aftertaste, as so many of the others have. plus ordering online from Vitamin Shoppe saves money and time.

                                                              Best Answer: It doesn't take much stevia at all to make things sweet. I have never cooked with sugar, just with honey or agave nectar. When a recipe calls for sugar, I just add a little bit of stevia, then taste the batter or dough to see if it's sweet enough. This is what I have done with my tapioca pudding recipe. I love this brand of stevia as it doesn't have an unpleasant taste or aftertaste like some do.

                                                              Best Answer: We used this product (KAL) for YEARS because it was the best tasting 100% pure stevia we could find on the market. Late in 2013 we noticed that the label had suddenly changed without any notification. We were VERY disappointed and stopped using this product because it now contains maltodextrin and is no longer pure stevia. A small label was also added to the bottles at that time reading "made in China" which was not on the bottle when it was pure stevia. Hope this answer helps you.

                                                              Best Answer: I have not tried using it in recipes, only to sweeten lemonade or tea, so I don't think I can answer that question. One of those small capfuls is very sweet. I can't use a whole one to sweeten my herbal tea. It's just too sweet. You might be able to contact the company and ask them. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful.
