I’m really wary of artificial sweeteners, so try to limit my use of them. Instead, I prefer to use stevia. For those of you who also use stevia (I sure know not everyone likes it!), which brand do you prefer?
I’ve been trying a few different kinds, with varying success:
-Sweet Leaf, which I find a bit too bitter for me
-Truvia, which tastes a lot better, but also has some added sugar alcohols (erythritol), presumably for texture and/or flavor, making it a bit harder to digest and translating into 3g of carbs (per packet, each packet equal to 2 tsp sugar)
-Nu Naturals, which also tastes better, but I believe has some added maltodextrin–again, presumably for texture and/or flavor–coming out to something like 1g of carbs per packet equivalent
Since being diagnosed, I’ve only been using stevia in my tea, but at some point I’d like to experiment with using it in cooking too. If you’ve got a brand to recommend, I’d love to hear about it!
