I like to use liquid stevia extract. 2 or 3 drops in tea or on yogurt is great--no strange taste.
I've been using Now brand

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

I have tried a couple of different Stevia products hoping I'd find one that I like the taste of, but so far no luck. They all have a taste that I haven't grown to like yet. I really want to as I know it's a much healthier sugar alternative than all the other artificial sweeteners out there. If anyone has any suggestions? I've tried Stevia in the Raw and Sweet Leaf.

Thanks for this! I never bought into the agave craze and have heard some stories from people who had problems with it. I love Sweet Leaf and am glad it is on the 'good' list!

Thanks for that. Also, I believe that maltosedextrin may contain gluten (I may be wrong) but I try to avoid gluten.

Thanks for the link.
I just went and checked my stevia, which I get at Trader Joe's.
It contains maltodextrin, but it says rice maltodextrin.
Since I'm not a frequent stevia user, I think I'm okay with this.

Good article! I used to use Stevia in the Raw until I contacted them and found out their maltodextrin is made from GMO corn. I've used Sweet Leaf and like it, but right now I'm using Stevita Supreme - the ingredients are xylitol, Stevia Rebaudiana Bertoni and Stevita Stevia Proprietary Extract. Not sure what's in the proprietary extract, but I really like this one and its dirt cheap on Amazon - with free shipping :)
