Tried Truvia today. My first taste of stevia. I'm not a fan of the taste of artificial sweeteners and avoid them. I put one packet in my iced tea. One packet is equivalent to 2 tsp. sugar. I usually drink my coffee and tea unsweetened but I've found this is a good way to test artificial sweeteners. The initial taste is pleasantly sweet. Maybe a little like powdered sugar. The aftertaste isn't too bad, but is noticeable. It's better than NutraSweet and much better than Splenda :sick:. I wouldn't put Truvia in coffee or tea, it's not that good, but I will go ahead and try a little in recipes that need a little sweetness. It might be good in fruit smoothies for instance. Cindy

Whatever you do, Cindy, just don't use refined sugar!

God bless and enjoy,

I've never heard of Stevia. Maybe it's not available where I live. Is it new?
I don't think I will try the broiled grapefruit, I'm funny I guess because I don't like my grapefruit sweet, I'm bad and put sea salt on mine! It's the only fruit I put salt on but that is just the way I have always ate my grapefruit since I was a kid. I think it's a southern thing because my mom also taught me to put salt on my watermelon and cantaloupe but I don't like them that way.

I agree on the southern thing...I live in South GA and we've always put salt on our fruit! I like most fruit plain, but watermelon and canteloupe almost always have salt! i usually prefer to have sugar on grapefruit, but since starting LDL I've been putting sea salt and it's not half bad!! Good luck to you!!

I don't trust some of the artificial sweeteners out there. I do think Stevia is ok and can be found in health food stores and now in most grocery stores also. I know that Stevia comes from a plant in Paraguay or someplace but some of the others I worry that they may come out later and say they cause cancer or something. I think if we are trying to get processed food out of our bodies we should be careful with artificial sweeteners as well. Maybe I am wrong - don't know - but I don't want to take a chance. :thumbsup:

I use the KAL brand of Stevia. It has no added fillers. A tiny scoop of it equals a couple of tsp of sugar for sweetness.
When I heard about Truvia I assumed I'd love it since it is made from Stevia. I bought a box of it and tried. Couldn't stand it.

Hmmm..  It just goes to show that different people like different things.  My husband couldn't stand Splenda, so we switched to Stevia four or five years ago.  I got really used to the Sweetleaf brand, but now that Truvia is cheaper and more easily accessible, I've started buying it instead.  What I like about it is that it's granulated in the same consistency as granulated sugar, unlike the fine powdery texture of the other Stevias we had used.  It's very sweet, so we use it very sparingly in coffee & tea, etc.  My little boy likes it sprinked on his berries for dessert.  In the Simmons' household, we like Truvia just fine! I see they're also marketing "Stevia in the Raw" by the same company that sells "Sugar in the Raw."  The North American market is finally catching on to the benefits of stevia over other sweeteners, that's for sure.

Yes, that doesn't surprise me. I didn't like Sweetleaf either. There was some other brand I tried too, don't remember the name. KAL is the first brand I tried that didn't have fillers and/or an after-taste.

I'll watch for the "In the Raw" brand.

Mary,
Can truvia be used for diabetics just like splenda? Or does it act just like real sugar? My mom is diabetic so I was just curious because I don't know anything about it. I would hate for her to buy it and it cause her sugar to sky rocket.

Stevia, which is what Truvia is made from, does not cause my blood sugar to fluctuate at all.
I think it'd be a safe choice for a diabetic.
