    Sugar Substitute


    What is everyones thoughts on Truvia as a Sugar Sub? It seems to have a good taste if you dont over do it but is it really any healthier?

    Truvia is the brand name for stevia. Ive tried several times, just can't get past the aftertaste. I'm a Splenda whore.

    splenda tends to be a bit cheaper so i usually end up with that, but i do love truvia; that and trader joe's stevia are probably the only 2 that didn't have a bitter aftertaste (for me anyway)

    Splenda definitely tastes better but still has about 1/4 the cals of sugar. Truvia, on the other hand, is essentially calorie free.

    The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES

    I've tried not just stevia but the flavored stevia blends as well and just can't come to like it. I do like splenda however, especially sprinkled on a bowl of berries.

    Splenda is pretty good. I have tried both and tend to lean toward Splenda more. Some have reported headache issues while using Splenda; but I think that is at heavy usage.
