    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.

        Comments about KAL Pure Stevia Extract Powder - 3 Ounces Powder:

        I bought a bottle of Kal at vitamin shoppe in hoover Al had no maltdextine listed as other ingred. I ordered one online looked at product list no maltdextine listed. When I received the bottled has maltdextine listed as other. Control blood sugar with diet can't get it to balance. Won't order this product anymore . The ingred should be listed.

        Contains this extra gross ingredient now. No longer pure. You will feel and taste the difference. Why they destroyed the best stevia on the market I do not know. Contacted company. No explanation.

        Not the worst--but no longer the best.

        Even though the website says 3 oz and only lists Stevia as ingredients, I received the two bottles today which I ordered last week and they are 3.5 oz and contain Maltodextrin. Extremely disappointed after I both called and emailed before ordering.

                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 Powder - 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. :)

                            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 really like this product and find it to be very easy to get used to it unlike other products. A small amount goes a long way. I love the fact that is all natural and the only ingredient is the Stevia extract.

                                  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.

                                      I've been using this brand for years and love it. I use it for purposes of sweetnening my tea or coffee to using it in baked goods as a replacement for sugar or toxic sugar substitute. It is the only sweetener I use. It is 100% stevia with no additives whatsoever which is very important from my perspective. Yes, the cost of this bottle may be high but it goes a very long way.

                                              This product has no after taste. I use it in coffee and tea. Hot or cold and fruit and jellies. You only need a small ammount of the powder. The only problem I ever had with this product was when they began making the holes larger on the lid. I felt like they wanted me to use more so I would buy more. The small holes gave me just the correct ammount now I have to be more careful.

                                                      I've tried other brands of Stevia, but KAL brand stands out as the standard. With this particular substance the difference is so great it's the difference between using it or not. 1 little scoop (provided) makes sweet coffee or tea. I use a minimum of 3 scoops daily and often 4 or 5 for two people and subsequent mugs of coffee, even on trips. This 3 oz bottle lasted 9 months strong. Where a 5 lb bag of sugar used to disappear and be replaced, it's delightful to see it still sitting on the shelf! Also, Stevia is very powerful. Just a tiny dusting is intense. If you accidentally knock a little powder into the air you will soon be tasting it from two feet away. This is a great all natural product that gives peace of mind, and is more convenient than any crystal powder.

                                                          I use this KAL Stevia extract on anything I want to sweeten (ice tea, coffee, cereal, desserts, sauces). I started with converting 1 cup of sugar to 1 teaspoon of KAL Stevia powder. It was still too sweet for me, so I continued to reduce the ratio until I now use 2/3 tsp for 1 cup of sugar. When I bake with it, I add the same amount of apple sauce as the recipe calls for sugar to give it the bulk it needs. Works great!

Tryed Kal at Vitamin shoppe and have not bought sugar for a long time. I like sweet espresso coffee and Kal makes it sweet. Want a fresh sqeezed lemonade and kal makes it sweet.Dont change the ingredients to make it better because when companies change ingredients they usually make it worse.Daniel, Rockville MD

I found the 3 1/2 OZ. Kal product, 3 times as much at half the price! I bought it. Then I found how much better it tastes. I sweeten everything With it.

                                                                  Shirley T: Cannot find it locally and your price is better than I was paying. I like the 20% discount. Nov 27, 2012

                                                                  Barbara B: I bought this because it should not have anything but stevia in it. I have a brand I purchased and it has silica in it. I research it and it the stuff that they put in the poctket of leather coats and other stuff to keep it dry. I will no longer use stuff without reading labels first. Nov 13, 2012
                                                                  Lorretta C: It is pure Stevia unlike some brands that add other ingredients like rice. Nov 12, 2012

                                                                  Kristine A: This is the best tasting stevia and the only one I've found without any added ingredients. Just a little dab will do 'ya. One jar lasts me a couple of months and I use it all the time. The only problem with this (if it could be called a problem) is that it's easy to over-sweeten, so be careful! Oct 26, 2012

                                                                  Bonnie W asked: 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?

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][ Mar 17, 2014

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! Mar 15, 2013

When I make an 8 oz. mug of herbal tea/green tea I put one of the scoops that is in the bottle. For a 2-qt. pitcher of drink I would just add a couple of the scoops (or more) until you get to the desired taste. Count the scoops, then you will know next time. This stevia powder is very concentrated and therfore very sweet. It's probably as sweet as a couple of teaspoons of sugar. I don't know the ratio though. You will just have to experiment. What I like about this stevia is it doesn't have an aftertaste to me. Good luck! Mar 15, 2013

I have experimented in the past couple of weeks and I've found that if I want to make a 2 quart pitcher of Koolaid, for instance, it takes 8-9 of the tiny scoops (level scoops or less). I'm figuring I would need a similar amount for a pitcher of sweet tea, but I haven't tried tea yet (waiting for summer to arrive for that!). Even though 8-9 scoops seems like a lot in a way, I can still see this bottle lasting a really long time, with over 2000 scoops in the bottle! I think this has been one of the best buys I've made in a long time. I highly recommend this product! Apr 10, 2013

I found that the tiny scoop they give you with the bottle is probably 1/16th of a teaspoon and that is equal to a teaspoon of regular sugar. This little bottle of Stevia (I think it's 3.5 ozs.) lasts me up to six months sometimes longer. To answer your question about a 2 quart (1/2 gallon) pitcher of drink, I have to say it would be according to taste however, 24 teaspoons = 1/2 cup of sugar - I would start with 12 to 24 tiny scoops and test it from there. It is quite a refreshing sweetener, no after taste. Mar 15, 2013

Just sprinkle the stevia on the top surface of the drink and let it sit there for a minute or two without disturbing it. The powder will absorb water and dissolve on its own very easily this way. When you no longer see white specks on the surface of your drink, then you can mix it with a spoon with no clumping at all. Apr 10, 2013

                                                                  The Stevia Cookbook, by Sahelian & Gates, suggest

                                                                  1/4 tsp equals 1 Tbs of sugar,
                                                                  but point out that sour foods may need more than sweeter foods.

                                                                  Hope that helps.

                                                                  The ratio of substitution of stevia powder for sugar would be a pinch to a teaspoon.

Your taste may call for a sweeter or more tart taste than anyone else. Even if you had a conversion chart, I would recommend tasting for yourself. It's very sweet so a teaspoo full is a lot.

One scoopp for two cups of liquid. Start small and taste it then add as necessary. Taste preferences vary greatly for each person and you must try some and seee how you like it. Paul A. Mar 20, 2013

Of course, using the scoop that is included in in Stevia container. I would try less...you can always add more. I hope you find this helpful.

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.

I have used Kal for years, and no added ingredients; however, the most recent purchase shows Maltodextrin as Other Ingredient. So just be ware when you go to reorder. Trying to verify is Vitamin Shoppe's on line product is from the old stock or Kal's new version. Feb 3, 2014

We've tried many others, but none seem to sweeten as well as KAL. As far as whether KAL has added Maltodextrin, I can't definitively answer that, but the label says NO OTHER INGREDIENTS have been added. It still tastes the same and, as I said, it sweetens as it has in the past. We will be ordering KAL again when it' time.

The new one actually says: Other Ingredients: Maltodextrin. Trying desperately to verify if what Vitamin Shoppe has on line is the old or the new version. Thanks, again, for your reply. Feb 3, 2014

Only ingredient listed is Stevia Extract. I hope this helps. I love this product and can't tell you how many bottles we've used to date. We have noted no change in the product. Feb 5, 2014

I read over the label to check for listed ingredients.It says it is pure stevia extract, 42 mg stevia extract per serving, then specifies other ingredients: none.

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. Mar 19, 2013

Stevia is a strong sweetener and you only need a speck to sweeten tea or coffee. The people who sell it should be able to tell you how much one bottle can serve. The back of my bottle sayes 2381 servings. But I purchased it due to it is ONLY stevia in the container. Nothing else! The other one I purchase else where had an ingredient that I researched and came to find out it was the stuff they put in items to keep moisture out of. For instance I had a leather coat with a pack of the stuff in the pocket when I purchased it. thats the stuff that was in my stevia. I will now look at labels before i purchase stevia from now on. This is pure stevia and that is the reason I purchased it. Serving will determine how much you need to sweeten your food that your using it in. Mar 23, 2013

I usually just do a tiny shake which probably is about the size of the spoon which is about the size of half a petite pea (for a cup of tea or coffee). A little more if you are baking or cooking with it. One bottle lasts me about 3 months. Mar 22, 2013

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. Jun 16, 2014
