I’ve tried Stevia before – and have been less than impressed with it – usually it’s bitter and leaves an aftertaste. Thankfully I was sent some NuNaturals Stevia products to try out as part of Christian Women Affiliate and I’m so glad that I made it as part of this review!
Most of my friends and family know that I can’t have artificial sweeteners like aspartame because of migraines and I can’t have sucralose because it’s affects on the digestive tract – so I’m usually left using regular sugar which isn’t healthy either since I’m a Type 2 Diabetic who is trying to reverse the disease.
Enter NuNaturals – they sent me the following items:
- Pure Liquid Orange NuStevia Alcohol Free 2 oz. bottle
- Pure Liquid Vanilla NuStevia Alcohol Free 2 oz. bottle
- Pure Liquid Peppermint NuStevia Alcohol Free 2 oz. bottle
- Pure Liquid Lemon NuStevia Alcohol Free 2 oz. bottle
- Pure Liquid Alcohol Free NuStevia 2 oz. bottle
- NuStevia White Stevia Powder 100 packets
- NuStevia Prebiotic blend
- NuStevia No Carb blend
- PreSweet Tagatose 1 pound bag
I currently use the liquid NuStevia in my coffees, teas and I mix the vanilla in with my hot cereals for a little sweetness. I haven’t tried baking with the Stevia yet but I’m going to make some cookies using the Tagatose which browns like sugar, is prebiotic meaning it feeds healthy bacteria, low glycemic, low carbohydrate, found in dairy, veggies and fruits so it’s naturally occurring. It is noted that excessive consumption may have a laxative effect.
In using the liquid I do suggest only adding a drop or two at a time until the desired sweetness and flavor is achieved – I added too much at one time and it was not good so now I start with two drops and work my way up depending on what I’m making or drinking it with. I like the fact that I can sweeten my drinks without worrying about that sugar crash later or the bitter aftertaste of some Stevia products. When I use packets, which conveniently tuck in my purse for on-the-go sweetness, I only need a little bit – my current packet has so far sweetened 3 drinks and I still have some left! This is a case of a little goes a long way. The recipes on the NuNatural site are extensive, I haven’t tried them because some of the ingredients aren’t easily found where I grocery shop and I’m not good at substituting.
I cannot recommend enough the use of NuNaturals Stevia whether you’re looking for a healthy way to sweeten food and drinks or because you’re diabetic and need something that isn’t artificial or both.
