Best taste, but beware!

The good news is there's a no-carbohydrate variety. However, this product contains 1 gm of maltodextrin per serving. Maltodextrin is a carbohydrate with one of the highest glycemic values of any food - 137! I will no longer purchase this product because I use more than one serving when I use it, which means a greater spike in glucose and insulin levels. Because the GI value is so high, this causes the same effect as eating any other sugar-laden food.
How ironic is this, but unfortunately it's very true.
Go for the no-carbohydrate variety.

This has maltodextrin in it, so if you are trying to break a sugar addiction, manage diabetes or cut carbs., do not get this.
Maltodextrin negates any benefits you would derive from plain stevia.
I looked this up, thanks to another reviewer, and found that maltodextrin is highly processsed and refined; glycemic index is higher than white sugar and white bread. BAD STUFF.

Product is good but the cost plus shipping could be lower.

Product is great for cooking and sweetening larger quanities. Great product and healthy alternative to sugar.
