Truvia Sweetener from Influenster March 15, 2012

Ah Influenster, they sent me another lovely vox box – this one contained a product that I’m excited to share with you – this is Truvia. Truvia is natural but the sweetness comes from the Stevia plant. It apparently has no calories and is considered sweeter than sugar. It can be used as a sugar substitute.

What did I think of it? It was REALLY sweet – nearly too much so. I have been using it in tea (which I will share in a different post) and I use far less of it than I do when I use real sugar.  I think thats a good thing though.  I have heard others say there is an aftertaste but I haven’t noticed it. I haven’t noticed any ill effects of using it either. All in all I think it is a pretty darn good product.

Check out the macro’s here – it has a crystaline structure just like real sugar – pretty neat right?



Would I get it again? Probably – depends on  how convenient it is to buy compared with other sugar.
