Pros: Taste like sugar
Looks like sugar
If you are like me and have been searching for a sugar substitute that does not leave a chemical wasteland taste in your mouth then your search is over. Until now, I have settled for other sugar substitutes. However, like others, I have been disappointed in either the taste or consistency of the artificial sweeteners on the market.
Truvia is a natural sweetener that does not contain any calories. The first thing you will notice about Truvia is that it looks like sugar. It has the same crystal-like appearance. However, the best aspect is the taste test. Pour just a little in your hand and enjoy the calorie free taste of sugar. The taste is very crisp and clean. This is the sugar substitute that you have been looking for.
I have used Truvia for cooking and in coffee/tea beverages. I cannot taste the difference between Truvia and real sugar. In addition, there is absolutely no after-taste.
There are only two noted drawbacks to Truvia. The first, it is a little pricey. However, Truvia is not much more expensive than other artificial sweeteners. Second, Truvia is not currently on the shelves of all grocery stores so locating Truvia may be a little difficult.
Overall, this product is an excellent substitute for sugar with none of the calories or after-taste.
