First time using leaf powder. I have had the processed
white powder before. I put some leaf powder in a quart
jar with 3 cups of water, and gave it a shake. Put in fridge for a day to transfer the sweetness to the water. If I add a spoon of the water to coffee it tastes sweet. There is a 'stevia' flavor with it but
I do not mind that at all.
This is only the second leaf stevia I have tried and compared to the first it is too fine, too powdery.
I've tried several brands and I didn't like the aftertaste or the way it was made. This is healthier, additive free and tastes good. It doesn't dissolve as easily and can make me choke but I use less now and that hasn't been an issue.
I've been interested in stevia for a while, but had trouble finding an unrefined source without fillers. This is the pure product. It is easy to work with in baking. Just be aware of the "stevia aftertaste." Combining it with other flavors is the key. Research recipes and you will be on your way to delicious and healthy desserts.
I've been trying to reduce my sugar intake as much as possible, and refuse to eat or drink anything with artificial sweeteners. Now I can enjoy a delicious hot chocolate using only pure cacao and a quarter teaspoon of stevia leaf powder. Next I plan to try it for making some favorite desserts.
