The sweet taste of Truvia® calorie-free sweetener comes from the extract of the stevia leaf, a plant that has been enjoyed for its delicate sweetness for centuries. Dried stevia leaves are steeped in water. This unlocks the best tasting part of the leaf which is then purified.
Next, we blend with erythritol, a sweetener produced by a fermentation process, to give a sugar-like texture.
Finally, natural flavourings compliment the clean sweet taste of Truvia calorie-free sweetener.

Haven't used sugar in years since buying Truvia it's a great alternative little on the expensive side but well worth it
Taste vs plastic pollution
It's good, but using it generates to much plastic pollution that I had to find an alternative. Pity that even these days the producers are so inconsiderate in their practices.
Excellent and more natural than others
I find this to be the best low calorie alternative to sugar and other sweeting items such as honey and agave syrup. I find it doesnt have the same nasty aftertaste that the artificial sweeteners have, its consistency is more like sugar and it has a pleasant caramel smell. A little goes a long way and a pot of this lasts me ages.
Ive used Splenda for 4 years but I read a review that said Truvia was the healthiest sweetener so I thought Id swap and see how I got on. I wish I hadnt. The pot is tiny and wouldnt last a few days with the amount of tea I drink and the aftertaste....No likely. Back to Splenda for me.
Diabetes and high blood pressure
Stevia does seem to be a good product. However, there are reports that it can adversely interact with medication for diabetes and high blood pressure, potentially resulting in very low blood glucose levels, ie a hypo, and very low blood pressure. It can also produce nausea/feeling ill during/after eating. It does not take much stevia to produce these effects. My elderly father takes medication for diabetes type 2 as well as for high blood pressure . He has been using stevia sweeteners in his tea for about a year. Recently he started putting Truvia stevia granules in his porridge every day. He became very poorly, exhausted, weak, and out of breath - many symptoms of low blood pressure. He became well again after two days' abstinence from stevia. If you are on medication for diabetes or high blood pressure, check with your doctor before using stevia.
Great alternative in cooking
I'm currently using this instead of sugar in stewed rhubarb, to which I add some orange peel and juice. This detracts from any possible after taste and my husband couldn't tell the difference. As I want to cut down on sugar in my diet, this has proved to be very useful and means I can once again eat rhubarb from our allotment !
