QUESTION: WOULD VANILLA FLAVOR BE BAD IN SPICY PICKLE, SAVORY RECIPES? STRONG VANILLA FLAVOR? WHAT KIND OF EXPIRATION DATE? SHELF-LIFE? 288 SERVINGS REALLY?
The bottles I have received always have an expiration date at least a year to 18 months out. Nice vanilla flavor. You can definitely tell it is vanilla and smells wonderful. Great in coffee, tea, lemonade, on strawberries. I have used it in a red wine vinaigrette salad dressing and liked it, but that is personal taste.The number of servings depends. The sweeter you like something, the more you will need to use. It is very sweet and concentrated. I like sweet coffee and about 10 drops will do it. If you are using in coffee, tea, etc., it will last a long time. If you are baking with it, that would require you to use much more. Read some other posts on this and I have never stored mine in the refrigerator and it is fine. Have a bottle with me all the time.
You can by stevia in packets, unflavored or even in unflavored liquid to use in recipes. The flavor is only detectable if you use more than the 4 - 5 drops, so no, in my experience you do not get 288 servings. that amount of drops only takes away bitterness, but does not sweeten or flavor for my taste. I use between 12 and 20 drops, depending on my mood, for tea, or what I am sweetening. I like these drops for tea or smoothies, ... mostly for beverages. I use the powdered unflavored stevia for baking. I hope this is helpful to you. Oh, the expiration dates are far in the future of how long it takes me to consume the product.
288 servings would probably be the amount of drops. Of course it won't work in 288 cups of coffee or something, unless you don't like it sweet! I have some bottles that say they expired a year or so ago but I still use them no problem. The vanilla doesn't seem to have a strong vanilla flavor but I love it in coffee, it adds just enough. As for other recipe types, I'm not sure. I just use it in baking or sweet items.
I use the vanilla flavor for everything--have no idea about pickles but can't imagine it would make any difference. I think it lasts forever--I just realized it says to refridgerate after opening--I didn't do that but it hasn't made any difference that I can notice. expiration date is about 1 1/2 year according to the bottle. I use a dropper full or two at a time sometimes. I can tell if I have used too much by a slight aftertaste but it takes a lot for that to happen. I don't measure the drops--I just squirt some in. I guess I only get about 100 servings but I don't have a clue--my bottle has lasted quite a while though--I think I have bought 2-3 bottles at the most in the last year and I don't use any other kind of sweetener. I have cinnamon and chocolate flavors, too, but mostly grab the vanilla one.
If you keep in refrigerator I would think it would last forever. Serving size depends on personal preference. It takes several drops to flavor any of my favorite dishes, but it works best than a powder.
I wouldn't use the vanilla sweetener with spicy/pickle/savory recipes. In fact the only thing I use it in is my morning hot cocoa. I have friends however that have it in all flavors, and add it to club soda. I keep mine in the fridge so it has lasted a pretty long time. My friends carry theirs in their purse, and have no problem with expiration (they go thru it a lot quicker than I however). hope that helps.

QUESTION: DOES IT CONTAIN ALCOHOL (FROM VANILLA EXTRACT)?
No it does not contain alcohol. Many of the sellers also post pictures of the full list of ingredients, as this seller does, so you have no worries!
I do not think Sweet Leaf has alcohol. I know NuNatural brand will have the alcohol content listed.
It does not list it on the bottle. It does not smell like it does either. I currently have 4 different flavors and alcohol is not listed on any of them. The vanilla cream is my favorite.
the ingredients just list: purified water, organic stevia leaf extract, natural flavors, vanilla extract. it doesn't say one way or the other.

QUESTION: I READ THAT ANY STEVIA OTHER THEN USING IT GREEN IS NO BETTER THEN THE ARTIFICIAL SWEETNERS OUT THERE, ANY1 KNOW ABOUT THIS?
In my opinion, Sweet Leaf brand stevia products are in the minority when it comes to 100% pure without added ingredients. In fact, it's the only one I have found and the only one I use. I have stevia plants growing in the garden now so I will see what I can do with the leaves later to make my own home recipe.
A registered dietician who teaches paleo cooking classes at the Natural Grocers chain (for free) did not say stevia was bad only that it encourages your craving for sweets. In her opinion it is best to not have sweet cravings. I didn't specifically ask if stevia is good or bad in any particularly form. My ND encouraged me to replace sugar and artificial sweetener usage with stevia. It would be hard to give up vanilla stevia in my black tea with Half & Half.
it may be true, sounds true, but i like the sweetleaf flavors and it is better than eating bad food maybe i can try preparing the green stevia and adding the flavors for baking. sometimes choices are good better best
This is absolutely correct. Read this great article by Dr. Mercola on the topic >>http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/10/07/sugar-substitutes.aspx
Per the website from Dr Mercola listed here. "Two of the best sugar substitutes are from the plant kingdom: Stevia and Lo Han Guo (also spelled Luo Han Kuo). Stevia, a highly sweet herb derived from the leaf of the South American stevia plant, is sold as a supplement. It's completely safe in its natural form and can be used to sweeten most dishes and drinks..." I love this Stevia with Vanilla - I have the regular Stevia but it just doesn't taste as good when I want to add sweet to tea, plain yogurt, fruit, etc. I am ordering 2 bottles because I don't want to run out.
The only bad thing about stevia is the sugar alcohols most companies add to it during processing! All the ones sold in chain stores like Walmart are full of sugar alcohols, which may be calorie free, BUT have a glycemic load of like 150! Now if you grow it yourself and learn the different ways to extract the sweetness without using things like glycerin (sugar) then its great, because by itself the glycemic load is a big fat 0 ZERO!!! It is really hard to find good quality stevia, with no bad after taste (that comes from heat extraction) and no sugar alcohols. I'm hopping this one is different!

QUESTION: I BUY TRUVIA IN BOXES OF 300 PACKETS. DOES 1 DROP OF SWEET LEAF LIQUID EQUAL THE SWEETNESS TASTE OF 1 PACKET OF TRUVIA?
Hi David, I've never used Truvia, so I have no comparison to offer. I've been using Stevia liquid for 4+ years in many things, and I guess one example that might help you would be that I use 3 drops in a 6 ounce cup of coffee with creamer, and it's plenty sweet for me. In summer I like to put a dropper full of both vanilla Stevia and lemon Stevia in 20 ozs. of ice water and shake it up. It tastes great and has zero calories! I also have used 2-3 drops of the lemon in collard greens and they taste great. One advantage the liquid offers is that you can adjust the sweetness to meet your preferences, as opposed to using an entire packet each time. And, the stuff lasts a really long time; a month or more per bottle for me. I would suggest you give it a try. Good luck!
Hi, I too, have not used Truvia, but Stevia in the Raw, packets. I mostly use flavored Sweet Leaf in 32 oz water. I usually use a whole dropperful. I did try a cup of water just now and found I needed about 3 or 4 drops of the Valencia orange flavor to get the sweetness I like. So I would imagine needing that many drops of plain Stevia in coffee or tea. I still use a packet of Stevia in my tea since I stopped drinking coffee. Hope this helps a bit.
I've never used the packets, only the flavored liquids and powdered stevia. I use one dropper for 32 ounces of water, but I think you'll need to experiment to find what's right for your taste buds. That said, I really enjoy this products. My grandkids love the root beer, lemon and orange and I can avoid giving them unhealthy sugary drinks.

QUESTION: IS THIS HEALTHIER THAN SKINNY GIRL STEVIA EXTRACT?
I've never tried the Skinny Girl kind but I do know that the Sweetleaf brand is very well known and tastes good. I'm pretty sure that stevia extract is the same no matter what brand it is.
I am not sure,but, what I do know is that stevia is made from the stevia leaf..a long process of drying..so natural..Skinny Girl.. I would say no..all stevia is not the same some have additives..one I can recommend is Simple Girl..that's the one I use for salad dressing..BBQ sauce..hope this helps

QUESTION: "NATURAL FLAVORS" MEANS WHAT? MSG?
You could ask the company what their natural flavors are, but Sweet Leaf doesn't use MSG. The Sweet Leaf website claims: SweetLeaf Stevia Sweetener employs proprietary technology that uses only cool, purified water to extract a select blend of glycosides from high-quality stevia leaves. SweetLeaf is the only stevia-based sweetener company in the world to use this process. SweetLeaf Stevia Sweetener does not use chemicals, alcohols, solvents or enzymes at any stage of the extraction and purification process. I love this brand of stevia and trust that it's ingredients are healthy and pure.
Natural flavors are nearly always additives that we are not supposed to ask what they are, otherwise they would list them.
I emailed the company. Reply: "Our natural flavors are plant based, which means that we use a combination of herbs, fruits, vegetables, and essences. Sweet Drops contain no MSG or other products like it. Our liquids are also vegan and gluten free, meaning they contain no corn, wheat, barley or rye. We do not use GMO products."
msg? don't think so. not my specialty, but i have an allergic reaction when i eat somewhere that uses too much msg, and i drink this stuff in large quantities on a daily basis for years now. i couldn't do it if it had msg. i think they mean vanilla, or cinnamon, or whatever flavor it happens to be. but i'm only a customer. i have the same information available that you have. perhaps you should contact them if you're concerned.
Natural flavors mean there are no artificial flavors added. There is no MSG in sweet drops stevia.

QUESTION: DOES IT TASTE SIMILAR TO FRENCH VANILLA TO ANY GREAT DEGREE?
It does taste like vanilla... be careful not to put too much in though as it can be a little bitter with too much. It is very sweet so you don't need a lot. I use this and other flavors all the time in both hot and cold drinks and yogurt, etc.
To me it does. And I know a pretty finnicky teen who loves it, but the trick to stevia is learning the exact right amount for you. Some people start a drop at a time, and that's what's recommended on the bottle. Others, myself included, use multiple droppers. I would start out slow. I think you quickly adjust to any taste differences from sugar. It may take a couple tries first though. I think they say the brain takes 5 tries of a new flavor to receive it on it's own merit. For me, I loved it immediately. So, have the teens, but they use much smaller amounts. Also, a note, I usually use the English Toffee in coffee and the Root Beer in water. My husband uses the Cinnamon in coffee, and my daughter, the pepperment in her mocha. It's my daughter's friends that use the Vanilla Cream, s o it's been a while since I have personally tasted it. I just prefer toffee over vanilla. Good luck. It's a great product, and a great thing to do for your health!
yes I'd agree. I like the flavor, it is a great replacement for vanilla extract in baking, in my opinion (it serves two purposes then, to sweeten and provide the vanilla flavor)

QUESTION: "NATURAL FLAVORS" IS VERY VAGUE AND MEANS NOTHING. WHAT, EXACTLY ARE THE `NATURAL FLAVORS', AND WHY ARE THEY NOT LISTED INDIVIDUALLY???
http://sweetleaf.com/about/faqs/. Check out their website and this information sheet, it may answer your questions. If not, contact the company and they will reply.
Sorry I don't know but I agree with other reviewer. Contact the company or website. Some flavors are much better than others. I especially like Valencia orange and coconut. Hope you find your answer.
The taste is exact. For actual ingredients contact the company.
Carol, the FDA certifies certain things that can all fall under an umbrella called "natural flavors," and doesn't require companies to list what exactly they are. From Wikipedia: "The U.S. Code of Federal Regulations describes a 'natural flavorant' as: the essential oil, oleoresin, essence or extractive, protein hydrolysate, distillate, or any product of roasting, heating or enzymolysis, which contains the flavoring constituents derived from a spice, fruit or fruit juice, vegetable or vegetable juice, edible yeast, herb, bark, bud, root, leaf or any other edible portions of a plant, meat, seafood, poultry, eggs, dairy products, or fermentation products thereof, whose primary function in food is flavoring rather than nutritional."
#sweetleaf

QUESTION: IS IT GLUTEN FREE? ALL OF THE INGREDIENTS LOOK OKAY EXCEPT "NATURAL FLAVOR."
Gluten-free isn't listed on either bottle that I have. It says, All Natural, No Glycemic, Zero Calories.
It should be because it was allowed on the HCG diet and you couldn't have any bread on that diet, only 2 veg, 2 fruits, and 2 meats, and 2 grissini breadsticks per day. No Startch, or sugar.

QUESTION: ARE THOSE INGREDIENTS RIGHT? I ORDERED THIS AND MINE SAYS WATER, STEVIA, NATURAL FLAVORS, VANILLA EXTRACT
Yes, basically that is right; "purified water, organic stevia leaf extract, natural flavors, vanilla extract."
Yes this is right.
I believe that is correct. I love it!
Yep, that's right! It's wonderful stuff! I'm not sure what all the % of other stuff they mention on Amazon is. None of that is on the actual product or even on their website that I could find. I think the things they listed are a mistake. I am quite certain that there is no grapefruit extract in the SweetDrops. I am allergic to grapefruit and I use these drops several times every day in my water. Another great thing about these is SweetLeaf brand is a Non-GMO project certified product. Yay!
Yes. I checked the ingredients and the label says the same thing. I do have two different labels (same item). It also recommends refrigeration, but I do tend to use mine up rather quickly. I don't know any other stevia product with vanilla...so this is it for me!
I think mine said that but honestly I do not know because I no longer have it.
yes
Not sure, i ony buy the KAL brand. Ive not found any of the other brands of stevia to be of the right taste for me and especially my kids.

QUESTION: IS THIS FOR 2 BOTTLES OF SWEET LEAF LIQUID STEVIA, FOR $9.79? THE LINK FROM MY PREVIOUS ORDER OF 2 BOTTLES FOR $9.79, PRIME, BROUGHT ME TO THIS PAGE.
No, just one 2 oz. bottle.
They have not been that cheap. Most likely one bottle.
I paid 9.79 for one bottle , it is concentrated. It lasts a long time.

QUESTION: WHICH STEVIA HAS THE LEAST AMOUNT OF AFTERTASTE?8
i used to work in a food lab and have done a lot of work with taste masking stevia. there are different grades of Reb-A (The sweet component of stevia). the 97% purity has more aftertaste (due to the impurities). the 99% purity is much better and has A LOT less aftertaste.
I don't find thus to have an aftertaste whatsoever. Of course if you use too much you will find an unpleasant taste. But I use this in my coffee, in baked goods, oatmeal, in place if vanilla extract....and it all works wonderfully.
I've tried others (Nu Naturals and Sprouts brands) and find them gross. This one (Sweet Leaf) tastes the best, however, you don't want to use too much.
Personally I think lemon has the least amount of aftertaste.....but I have also found that cutting back on the amount I use also helps. It's trial and error to get just the right amount. Hope that helps!
For myself, most of the sweet leaf products have little aftertaste. But I have been using stevia for several years. I really like the lemom drop and mandarin orange. They are my favorites. But I use many flavors by sweet leaf.
#sweetleaf

QUESTION: IS THIS BETTER THAN BROWN SUGAR? I KNOW BROWN SUGAR IS BETTER THAN WHITE SUGAR.
If your diabetic its the best as its from a plant and not a chemical like Splenda. I use it in baking and good in coffee & tea.
No. It honestly taste horrible. You are better off having nothing rather than using this.

QUESTION: HOW MANY DROPS EQUAL 1 TEASPOON OF SUGAR?
I have found 5 drops or half a dropper .. this is not sweet enough for me as I am a 2 teaspoon user of sugar for coffee.. so I do 10 drops to receive the same as 2 teaspoons... experiment .. these drops are amazing and the safest non calorie sweetner around.
3 drops = 1 teaspoon
Sugar amount Equivalent Stevia powdered extract Equivalent Stevia liquid concentrate 1 cup 1 teaspoon 1 teaspoon 1 tablespoon 1/4 teaspoon 6 to 9 drops 1 teaspoon A pinch to 1/16 teaspoon 2 to 4 drops
Unfortunately, we are not provided with the conversion rate from Sweet Drops to regular sugar.
I use 10 to 12 drops in a cup of coffee to replace the sugar & cream
Stevia Conversion Chart Sugar amount Equivalent Stevia powdered extract Equivalent Stevia liquid concentrate 1 cup 1 teaspoon 1 teaspoon 1 tablespoon 1/4 teaspoon 6 to 9 drops 1 teaspoon A pinch to 1/16 teaspoon 2 to 4 drops
#sweetleaf

QUESTION: IS IT CERTIFIED KOSHER?
I am not sure. I do not see that it says certified kosher on the bottle.
I'm sorry, but I don't know.
The bottle doesn't say 'certified kosher', but I don't know why it wouldn't be kosher. Stevia is a plant leaf. There are no animal products in it.
#sweetleaf

QUESTION: "OTHER INGREDIENTS"? COULD SOMEONE EXPLAIN WHAT THESE ARE? OR, IN THE OTHER FLAVORS, WHAT "NATURAL FLAVORS" ARE?IDON'T TRUST UNDISCLOSED INGREDIENTS
The other ingredients in the liquid form are distilled water and the flavor indicated on the label. Vanilla Cream uses vanilla extract, chocolate raspberry uses raspberry extract and a very small amount of cocoa. I don't recommend the powered or tablet forms, they actually have the same added ingredients as the faux sweeteners...none of which is health. The plain liquid Stevia Clear is only Stevia and distilled water but I find it has a bit of an aftertaste. My favorite is the liquid vanilla cream.
The bottle does not provide an ingredients list. It provides nutritional information but no ingredients. That info must have been on the box the bottle came in and I, of course, tossed that. Sorry! Check www.sweetleaf.com
#sweetleaf

QUESTION: WOULD THIS WORK FOR VANILLA LATTES?
I don't think so, it wouldn't be very creamy. That would be up to you. I use it in coffee and tea.
Sure! It's great! I love it in Tea, coffee, lattes.. even for a vanilla sweetener in baked goods! Only takes a little. :)
#sweetleaf

QUESTION: DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THIS LIQUID STEVIA IS THE SAME AS STEVIA GLYCERINE?
I dont.. however It was strongly recommended by my nutrionist as the safest of all sweetners.. I use hazelnut in my coffee, lemon in my water and clear in all other things.. I think it is great!!!
These are Stevia liquid flavor drops that you can put in any drink. They contain purified water, natural flavors and stevia extract. We carry the Sweetleaf brand you're referring to as well as Stevita's (stevitastevia.com). Stevita is the first company that brought Stevia to the public market as well as the only company that is able to bring their Stevia to the US from Brazil where it is grown and cultivated on Stevia farms. Come see what we have and if you have any questions feel free to email us and we'll help out however we can. Thank you for the inquiry. SteviaSmart.com

QUESTION: I LIKE TO CARRY IT AROUND IN MY PURSE, BUT IT SAYS REFRIGERATE AFTER OPENING. WHY? THE OTHER LIQUID STEVIA YOU SEE DOESN'T SAY REFRIGERATE AFTER OPENING.
I don't refrigerate mine never even saw that on the label lol. Stays good for atleast a couple months. Mine has atleast.
Don't Keep mine in the Fridge
The stevia will not go bad but apparently it will lose its flavor more quickly. Read more on the Sweet Leaf website: http://www.sweetleaf.com/ask-jim/71-shelf-life
I keep mine at room temperature in my kitchen and never have a problem. I didn't even realize it said to refrigerate after opening. I use mine up fairly quickly, so maybe that is why I don't have a problem.
#sweetleaf

QUESTION: ARE THEY MADE FROM GMO FREE INGREDIENTS?
Stevia is not GMO.
Stevia is not GMO herb, and this Stevia has very little added, so I believe it would not be genetically modified.
