Stevia Extract, Powder

The form of Stevia we use most often is the white powdered extract. This is the sweetest form, which is approximately 200 to 300 times sweeter than sugar, by weight. By comparison, this means that the 1/8 teaspoon of stevia extract in the photo is sweeter than 1/2 cup of cane sugar.  Because it is so sweet, it should be used by the pinch. Start with a very small amount, less than you intended to use, and add more only if necessary, after tasting. Other forms of Stevia are liquid concentrates, and fresh Stevia leaves, dried leaves, and ground powdered leaves, which are greenish in color and have a distinctive flavor, somewhat similar to licorice. We don’t like the green stevia because it leaves an aftertaste, which can alter the flavor of the recipe. Stevia Extract is available from health food stores, on-line, and from food co-ops.
