Default Pure 'Via (natural sweetner)

I was excited to try this product but found it to be sooo yucky!
Can anyone recommend a better Stevia-based sweetener?

I use Truvia, and find it much better than Purevia, but don't know if you can get that brand.

I use Stevia in the Raw. It is delicious!

I just buy pure stevia at the health food store. It tastes good and seems to me that it's by far the safest, most natural, least processed. I'm totally biased but I don't trust truvia or pur via, partially because they are patented by coke and Pepsi :P stevia is a little more expensive though... Go figure.

Truvia has erythritol made from corn starch, so I avoid it.
Pure Via is also "Stevia Based" and not totally Stevia.

I grow Stevia on my patio and use it for things like tea. For other things I use liquid Stevia extract, from the health food store. There's just too much junk in the big commercially produced powdered labels, for me to trust them.

ETA: I found this list -
Truvia™ : erythritol, rebiana and natural flavors

Pure Via™ :dextrose, isomaltulose, cellulose powder, Reb A and natural flavors

Stevia in the Raw (individual packets): Dextrose and Stevia Extract (Rebiana)

Stevia in the Raw: Maltodextrin and Stevia Extract (Rebiana)

Sun Crystalsâ : pure cane sugar, stevia.

Stevita™ Spoonable™ : Stevia Rebaudiana Bertoni extract (leaves) and Erythritol.

SweetLeafâ Sweetener™ : Inulin soluble fiber, Stevia leaf extract

Planetary Herbals Stevia Powder: Stevia Leaf (finely ground)

Kal Pure Stevia Extract: Stevia Extract (Stevia rebaudiana) (leaf)

Now Certified Organic Stevia Extract: Certified Organic Stevia Extract Powder (Stevia rebaudiana)(Leaf)
