Kal Pure Stevia Extract Powder -- 3.5 oz
Love this product!
I have been buying this brand of stevia at my local health food store for years. I was so glad to see that Vitacost carries it and at a better price. It is the best brand of stevia in my opinion. It is the real deal, no synthetics.

I will never go back to using other sweeteners. I have tried other brands of Stevia and nothing compares to Kal brand. There is no awful after taste with Kal Stevia. We use it in green tea, coffee and even our breakfast smoothies. I recommend this brand stevia whenever possible and of course Vitacost has the best price.

I carefully read all the reviews before purchasing this Stevia, and I was so looking forward to having a product that didn't have a bitter aftertaste. This product was no different than the other ones I have tried, and I will not purchase it again.

Just a little goes a long way!!
Wow, this product is exactly what they say it is. It sweetens naturally and with very little, "just a slight sprinkle". I use this on everything that I need sweetened. In my coffee, tea and smoothies. Hot cereals, name it. Great product!!

Actually I thought I bought this on another site and posted my review there. I see now that I bought it here, so here's my review:
UPDATE: DOUBLE BLEH! Below is my original post where at the end I mention I might give the 2 bottles I have to my sister. I did. She uses only the powder form so I thought she be okay with it. She got back to me and agreed: it is horrible.
Original Post (when title was just "Bleh!"):
When I first learned about Stevia, I was advised to not use the powder form as it has a bitter aftertaste and stick with the liquid which has little to none. As I found the right liquid form to use (alcohol free, etc.), I've been quite happy with it, but it's not very easy to travel with.
The rave reviews of this powder form of having "no bitter aftertaste" made me think that I finally found a powder I could use. So not only did I buy one bottle, I bought 2 of them because all those reviews can't be wrong, right?
Now I am wondering if these folks have taste buds or know what bitter aftertaste is. lol. Perhaps they never had the liquid form to know the difference? I mean we are talking hundreds of people, so how can I be right, right? I especially don't want to insult anyone, but I cannot figure out why so many people are saying no bitterness when on my first use on food I usually used the liquid form on, I used the powder form and it was horrible. Bitter to the nth degree. Then I thought, maybe I didn't put enough in. So I added a little more. I successfully took the food from tasting horrible to being absolutely inedible, bleh!
So I have an unopened bottle and a practically full bottle and you know, sometimes we all can't agree on the same foods, right? Like my nephew doesn't like ice cream. Doesn't like ice cream?!?! I never thought that was possible! I also suspect that I am partially on the supertaster side of the taste bud spectrum because many of the foods that supertasters cannot tolerate, I can't either, but not all of the foods on the list so that's why I say I'm partially on the supertaster side. So it may be the case that my taste buds are just more sensitive to detecting bitterness.
I wish I knew what to do with these two bottles. Maybe my sister and mother would like to try it out. I've gone back to the liquid form.
I hope others don't jump in with 2 feet like I do. Probability has it that most will like it, but I advise to not be foolish like me and just get 1 bottle the
first time. :-)
