* This is great brand of stevia. I was not sold on stevia until I tried the Sweetleaf powder. It is much better for you than the artificial sweeteners.
* Stevia is 300 times sweeter than sugar, but with no sugar. The Sweetleaf Stevia Powder is absolutley the best! I've been using Stevia to replace sugar in my diet for over 6 years, and I've tried every brand and type of Stevia. Many have been cut with other ingrediants which make them bitter. But this one is perfect! No bitterness. If you've been disappointed with other Stevia brands, try this one - it's the best.
* Sweetleaf is one of the few brands that stays true to delivering a clean and healthy product. It's amazing how little it takes to sweeten an entire batch of cookies (1/2 teaspoon for a batch of 40 almond cookies!!!). It beats the other sweeteners in a lower carb count (0), and it tastes so much better and without any nasty aftertaste that other brands and other sweeteners have. Stevia is natural (comes from a plant) and this brand doesn't treat or process it with nasty chemicals or bond it with maltodextrin or other unsafe artificial sweeteners that some other brands do. I can't recommend it highly enough! Look for brands that don't add things to sweetleaf or hurt the taste. Sweetleaf if my favorite so far.
It's also incredibly cheap. If you consider it's 300 times sweeter than real sugar (and without the carbs and it's natural), this is one of the best things you can buy for a low carb diet. This one small container will likely last me an entire year!
4 grams = 1 tsp
the bottle contains 25 grams = 5.27 tsp
5.27 tsp powder = 15.81 cups of sugar
15.81 /$10 = 1.58 cups per dollar
This seems to be a contradiction if I calculated correctly. I don't know where they get the 25g = 17.5 lbs of sugar either. That would be 35 cups of sugar.
Conclusion: The liquid is a slightly better value. However, I think the label for the powder is misleading by my 1st calculation. Basically the label is saying there is 25 teaspoons of powder in the bottle. If this is the case, then that should be 100 grams.
