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 Stevia, good price

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).
The best sweetner

I found this sweetner about a year ago and will not use anything else. You can even cook with it! I can use as much as I want without causing pain (arthritis) or glycemic issues. I tell everyone who seems interested about it as well as the fact you can buy it in larger quantities here. I also share packets with some so they can try it for themselves. This is an incredible product and I'm deeply grateful for it. L

Have tried all of the new sweeteners but none can compare with Stevia. This is the closest sweetener to sugar I have ever tasted and it is without an aftertaste.

I really like this brand of stevia with FOS. It does not as much as a bitter aftertaste as some other brands.
