Question Questions about Stevia brands

I am using Stevia in the Raw. I have heard of Truvia and Sun Crystals. I'm sure there are more. What is the difference between all the different brands? What is your favorite brand? TIA

The difference is probably what they cut it with. Some cut with lactose, some cut with fiber, some are 100%. I bought some stevia from whole foods, it was their 365 label and much cheaper than buying any of the name brands.

I have tried many different variations of stevia and my favorite is Truvia. It tastes sweet without any bitterness. I did not like the stevia in the raw-very bitter to me!!

Thanks for the replies.

I don't think I have tried the Whole Foods 365 brand or Truvia, yet. I will give them a try.

I like the Stevita brand. I get it from Amazon in liquid, powder, and spoonable.

Thanks for your reply. I've never heard of that brand. I will look into it.
