Kal Pure Stevia Extract Powder -- 3.5 oz
I used to love this product, but....
This was my go-to stevia product and I loved it, however the ingredients used to say "stevia" and nothing else, now it is no longer pure stevia. It has Maltodextrin in it. Why they decided that customers no longer wanted PURE stevia, is beyond me.

MALTODEXTRIN now added.
For years I would never use anything but this product. Recently it was not as sweet, it was going down much faster and I could not understand it. Now I do. They change the product. They don't tell us! They call it "Pure Stevia" when in fact, only the stevia in it is pure stevia. This is VERY disappointing indeed and I will no longer purchase this product.

I've tried several kinds of stevia, and this is by far my favorite. It's a lot stronger in sweetness than others, so a little goes a long way!

Use very small amount. Still trying to get used to it. I am sensitive to the bitter after taste. Product is good.

The REASON the potency & taste CHANGED is that...
they ADDED.....get ready....MALTODEXTRIN!!!!! So...to those "newbies" out there, it USED to taste great with no bitterness. I am SO ANGRY about this! The front of the label STILL says "PURE" Stevia natural extract. What a JOKE! I'd been buying this product for YEARS and couldn't figure out why I had to keep using more and more and MORE and the TASTE kept getting worse! My college son actually said, "Mom...there's something wrong with that last bottle of stevia you gave me." He only uses it like me, in coffee. I finally looked at the ingredient list "just to make sure" and I was shocked! I truly think they've gradually increased the amount of maltodextrin with each production run or so. Did they REALLY think we wouldn't notice!? I now am using a very rounded 1/8 teaspoon in my travel mug, where as before I always just used one of the tiny scoops (that comes inside the bottle). The ORGANIC version of this, last time I purchased it, was still pure stevia, nothing else. GUESS WHAT!!?? It is no longer available on vitacost....not sure if it's available at ALL!??? This is CRAZY....and SAD.
