Sun Crystals are pretty good. It is a blend of raw sugar and stevia. My hubby doesn't like Truvia, he thinks it has a licorice taste to it. This I can put in his coffee and he doesn't notice...

I'm with Darway on this one. I went from a double double coffee (two sugar, two cream), to two milk two sugar, then down to two milk no sugar, and gradually reduced myself down to black. I can't even drink coffee with milk in it now. I notice the sweetness in everything. Even the smell of something is too much at times.

I think because of this I rarely drink soda anymore, diet or regular. I used to drink a lot, now maybe 3 or 4 a week, instead of 3 or 4 a day.

Artificial sweeteners give me headaches (especially aspartame), so I don't use them. But for taste, if I had to, I'd go with Splenda.

I use Truvia, I prefer the taste of it over Splenda, otherwise I try to avoid other artificial sweeteners as much as possible because they give me a headache but the truvia doesn't, I haven't tried the Agave yet.

Most artificial sweeteners, particularly aspartame, bother me with a range of symptoms so I avoid them as much as possible. Fruit and regular sugar don't seem to affect me the same way, but I avoid added sugars whenever possible. I love to bake though, so I am forever testing to see how much I can reduce a recipe's sugar before it affects the chemistry.

I'm with gardenerjoy on this one... I really try to stay away from sugar and sweeteners of any kind but if I have to I go with raw honey, real maple syrup, molasses or agave

hi. I can see this is an old, thread with occasional more recent posts. I tried splenda. Was feeling quite sick. Finally after several days of feeling sick I googled the symptoms and the word splenda. I found others reporting the same symptoms. I stopped and became non symptomatic

i do have a lot of trouble with sugar alcohols such as manitol,sorbitol, zylatol etc. So i stay away from any sweetner that has this in it. I tried truvia. But when I got it home I noticed it looked nothing like the stevia I buy at health food stores. I read further on it and decided it was not for me.

So bottom line for me is that if I want low calorie with no GI system side effects I have to go with pure stevia. Kal made a great one. But then they started adding maltodextrin ( a non caking agent) to it. I do not think that is a safe ingredient. Altthough it is present in many stevias that are on the market. Since KAL added that ingredient, I have been on a search for a decent tasting stevia to use in my hot chocolate. So far, no substitute for the KAL. But UPS has been busy delivering different stevias as I continue my search. Onward.
