Planetary Herbals, EarthSweet Stevia, with FOS, 8 oz (226.8 g)24 Reviews
Expiration Date: Mar 2018
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

iHerb Customer Reviews
My girlfriend and I started using the Planetary herbals stevia with FOS in our tea each day. We both were using it for about a week and then somehow spontaneously commented to one another how we had each had such great, healthy movements over the past week that we hadn't experienced in years (you can tell we're close). I then learned more about FOS and discovered how great it is for balancing gut flora by feeding the healthy bacteria and increasing it 5-10 times (feeds bifidus). It certainly works! What an unexpected and appreciated side-benefit to sweetening our tea. We both agreed we'll never be without it now, understanding how healthy intestines virtually ensures a healthy body overall, as most diseases originate in the there. The bottom line is -- this is great stuff. It's sweet, not bitter. And not too sweet, either. Just a perfect sweetness. And, the FOS can help make/keep you regular!
Good price on this Stevia; cheaper than NOW Foods. However, I was used to NOW Foods' Stevia and when I got this one (Planetary Herbals), I had to adjust my serving size because this Stevia is not as sweet as NOW Foods' brand. I'm not saying it's weak, because you still use way less of this Stevia than you would use sugar. It not being as strong is kind of a benefit: now it's easier to get the right amount and put into foods (i.e. a sweetening a cup of coffee doesn't take a "pinch" like super-sweet NOW Foods, now it takes 1/8 tsp - a bit more).
