Stevia Select

I have been trying to use stevia more in my drinks and baking lately since trying to become sugar free (0r at least use sugar). The problem is that it’s really hard to find stevia that tastes decent and doesn’t have any fillers.

One of the very few exceptions I’ve found is Stevia Select. But before I go any further, it’s important to know that stevia does take some taste bud adjustment, no matter how good the stevia is. You can’t expect it to taste just like sugar. However, some stevias definitely have a less bitter taste than others. And Stevia Select is one of those, in my opinion.

Now, what I’ve discovered is that I like plain stevia ok in drinks, but for food and baking, I prefer to use a blend of stevia, xylitol and erythritol. Many people don’t mind the flavor of just stevia in their sweets and baked goods, but I’m just not quite there yet. As I said, I use a blend and right now Stevia Select is an important part of that blend.

Stevia is extremely sweet, so a little goes a long way. Stevia Select includes a tiny little spoon that is about 1/32 tsp, which you would use in place of 1 tsp sugar.

I’ve been using the powdered stevia, but Stevia Select also makes liquid stevia, flavored stevia drops and flavored water drops. Their stevia is sourced from South America and is available on the Stevia Select website and on Amazon.

    This looks like such a good all natural sweetener that my Dad can use and I think he would love to try it in his coffee. I like cutting down on sugar, too and would like to try it!

  2. I have debated on using Stevia when baking. It doesn’t sound too bad, but I’m picky and I know what I like.

    When Stevia first came out, the farmer’s markets all had plants they were selling. In the plant form, the leaves are extremely sweet. I didn’t get the starters because I didn’t know how to process it practically. I would rather use a bit of honey if I’m trying to avoid sugar.

    Have been curious about stevia but haven’t tried it yet. My family is pretty picky!

  5. Sherry Keef says:

    I have not seen it here in Texas yet.
    Merry Christmas Everyone.

  6. I’m starting the Trim Healthy Mama eating plan and they highly recommend using Stevia as a sweetener. Thanks for sharing this post!

  7. I love sweetening my oatmeal with Stevia. It is a great product!

  8. I would love to try this. I have heard Stevia is good

  9. Kim Klinkovsky-My Kraft Kloset says:

    I’ve been trying to switch to Stevia too and eat less sugar. Thanks for the info.

  10. Jennifer Boehme says:

    Never heard of this and may try it. I tried the one that looks like a syrup, and it cost so much to buy enough to help with taste.

  11. Judy Thomas says:

    I haven’t tried it yet but I definitely will. Thank you for the info

  12. I haven’t found a stevia that doesn’t have a bad aftertaste to my mouth.

  13. I love stevia, especially flavoured stevia.

  14. Amber Ludwig says:

    I haven’t heard of or tried Stevia yet! Sounds like theres a bit of a learning and taste curve to it!! I’ll have to give it a whirl some day!!

  15. Debra Flanders says:

    I am looking into using sugar alternatives. does this have that “sugar free” aftertaste? I am hoping to sneak it into some baked goods and cut calories without my husband noticing!

    • AOHousewife says:

      Hi Debra. I don’t think it has much of an “aftertaste” as in, the taste doesn’t linger so much. It does however taste different than sugar. There is a blend I shared in this post that has stevia, xyltiol and erythritol that does taste close to sugar.

  16. I’m not a fan of stevia but I use a mixture of stevia and sugar in baked goods. I’ll have to look into this brand!

  17. i like stevia in my coffee every mourning–its good

  18. I’m not a huge fan of artificial sweeteners. Even though stevia comes from a plant, what ends up on the shelves is still an artificial sweetener.
