Maltodextrins are easily digestible carbohydrates made from natural corn starch, nothing to do with malt products despite the name suggesting so. They are polymers of dextrose (sometimes labeled "glucose polymers"), that do not contain significant quantities of protein, fat or fibre. ***Diabetics maltodextrin’s glycemic index is considered to be metabolically equivalent to glucose (dextrose). In other words it is equivalent to sugar!*** For a low-carber such as myself, this product is fine & the taste is fantastic, no bitterness whatsoever & super sweet for such a small sachet, but please don't get this if you are a diabetic.

The taste of this product is sweet without any bitterness so it is excellent in that way. I've used this mainly with hot beverages and it is perfect with black tea, with coffee it works but not as well. However, this is not pure stevia but it has maltodextrin so the carb count is 1 gram per serving. If you are carb sensitive you might consider pure stevia products instead.

Taste good. But has to state on the package that it must be refrigerated. It becomes hard in the packets.

This is not the best stevia sweetener as I thought based on other reviews. The search for the best continues. it has a sickening sweetness mixed with bitterness. It's not the one for me.

I have one review to Wisdom Natural, SweetLeaf, Natural Stevia Sweetener, 4 oz (115 g) in which also mentioned this NuNatural stevia 100 packets : i used to add agave to my coffee every morning. switch to stevia coz it's likely more healthier sweetner. for the first several times my coffee was tasted weird like chemicals but now the weird taste fades out and i'm feeling good with it. I also buy NuNaturals, NuStevia, White Stevia Powder, 100 Packets for being used outside. this one tastes more weird & chemical if add one packet. if half, it's acceptable. of coz the coffee may have little bit sweet taste and even too light but better than weird. i'm still getting used to the packet one.

The taste and after-taste is not really good. Make my beverage taste weird. So I use 1/2 sugar with some stevia powder.

i am using this as sugar replacement in my favorite drinks (coffee, tea or cocoa). verdict: for me this leaves a sweet after taste in my mouth. in terms of taste bud, this gets bad rating. in terms of acting like sugar when it is not, i doesn't fare well either. nevertheless, i am not going back on sugar.
