At Safeway they have powdered individual packs called True Lemon that use Stevia. There is lemonade and raspberry flavors.

if where you work has a fridge/freezer that you can access regularly, perhaps freeze a little flavoured liquid (say, lemon or lime juice - sweetened with a little stevia if that pleases you) and add a cube to your water when you drink it.

I sometimes use sugar. 1 tsp is 15 calories and 4 gr sugar. I buy Florida Organic Crystals. I also use Truvia too.

Hansen's Diet little packets are sweetened with stevia. Has a bit of an aftertaste, but no sucralose.

Thank you. the information and mis-information about sweeteners makes everything so confusing.

I know I should limit the amount of any artificial sweetener, but by using them I get 10-12 glasses of water a day versus 2. I've started adding lemons and 'recipes' for other waters flavored with real fruit and veggies, but during the work day, this is my best option.

You can actually buy flavored stevia liquid drops to add to water, coffee, tea, foods, etc. Try looking up "flavored stevia drops" or something and see what you find.

There aren't any that actually have stevia. They have Rebiana, a highly-processed extract of stevia that's no more natural than sucralose and hasn't been tested for safety.

You could try purchasing real stevia and adding it with your own flavors, or just try to acquire a taste for unsweetened drinks. (I like to add a single drop of peppermint oil to a liter of water, for example.) It's never a bad idea to try to reduce the amount of sweeteners you take in, but adding stevia-based processed sweeteners in place of sucralose means going from something we're pretty sure is safe to something we really know nothing about.

Can anyone tell me what flavored waters or water flavor additives have Stevia instead of Sucralose.

Crystal Light PURE does, but I didn't see it in the grocery store this morning.

I'm trying Black Cherry Vitamin Squeeze, but its a little bitter.

I'm a big fan of the Lipton Tea & Honey powders, but I'm trying to reduce the amount of sucralose in my diet.

Thanks in advance.
