December 03, 2012Reviewer: A customer in United Arab Emirates* I like the packets and texture of Truvia. Per packet, it seems slightly less sweet than a packet of Splenda but it doesn't have the maltodextrin additive so it is a better choice overall.
September 04, 2011Reviewer: A customer in New York* This is the best-tasting alternative sweetener I have tasted. You can literally dip strawberries in it as advertised. It is far superior to stevia and leaves no aftertaste like all of the artificial sweeteners. The only problem is that if you use too much of it, it can cause abdominal bloating and diarrhea from the non-absorbable sugar alcohol.This review is specific to Truvia
October 05, 2009Reviewer: Cindy in Kansas* I love this stuff!! I was a confirmed Splenda-aholic and this is so much better. Way more like sugar. I buy the big box and the price here is much better than the store.This review is specific to Truvia
1 of 1 people found the following review helpfulMarch 28, 2009Reviewer: Audrey in Florida* I am halfway through my box of 80 Truvia packets and am delighted with it. It have used Erythritol and also Stevia by themselves, but this combination is exactly right. It tastes just like sugar to me, some AS are just too sweet - this is perfect. It has absolutely no affect on my blood sugar, no laxative problems and does not stall my weight loss.
I am ordering more today!This review is specific to Truvia
March 07, 2009Reviewer: Jennifer in Michigan* This product has the consistency of sugar and tastes as pleasant without any bitterness or aftertaste. It is not as sweet as other artificial sweeteners, which means that although it states that one packet has the sweetness of two teaspoons of sugar, I found that it is more or less equal to one teaspoon of sugar. Other than that, this product is wonderful! Zero carbs and zero calories! The erythritol produces a slight "cooling" effect that is well-balanced by the stevia. This is a great sugar substitute that I feel will quickly replace Splenda in many non-caloric foods.

I tried Truvia this week on my low carb hot cereal. The truvia sprinkled on top even formed a slight crust like sugar.
I've been using Splenda and find it looses flavor in baked goods. It also has 24g carbs in 1 cup! It's good to know there's an alternative that tastes great!
