Great tasting product. Has no metallic tatse nor does it change th foods tast. E bit pricey but worth because of the great "sweet" taste. Does not to to well in baking. Melts slower in cold drinks.

I enjoy this in my coffee. It does not leave a bitter after taste like stevia does.

Great tasting lo calorie sweetener

I highly recommended this product. Everyone I know who tried it found the flavor and sweetness to be pleasant, with no bitter tones or aftertastes. I’ve tried the Slimsweet packets and the Slimsweet powder. I’m not sure why, but the powder tastes much better. The packets I tasted had larger grains and seemed to have a stronger lo han kuo (momordica grosvenori) flavor. The Slimsweet powder seemed to taste sweeter with less lo han kuo flavor. Slimsweet tastes somewhat similar to brown sugar or honey. It has a full body mouth feel, it lingers in the mouth. Usually the recommended 1/5 tsp will sweeten up a cup of coffee well, but going beyond 1/2 tsp increases the flavor of the lo han kuo without increasing the sweetness much. The sweetening power of lo han kuo seems to plateau at a moderate sweetness level and never becomes intense no matter how much you use. However, like brown sugar or honey, the flavor can become intense if far too much is used. If you need a more intense sweetness, I found adding erythritol (a natural low calorie sweetener which tastes almost exactly like sugar) works best. A very high quality stevia extract (like all natural Sooolite!) will also work, but not as well as erythritol.

Great Taste

Great product. I use it in my protein shakes, cereal, tea, etc. Tastes more like brown sugar than white sugar. No after taste.

Tastes great

Wow, the taste is great - very natural tasting sweetness - absolutely no aftertaste like stevia, however, mine is not powder like, it's turned rock solid, so I have to chop at it with a knife ... not sure if it's because it got exposed to air?? I'll definitley use this type of sweetner again.
