Stevia Clear is extremely sweet. It is a great substitute for sugar, but if you use too much of it your drink will have a bit of a chemical taste to it. It is a small enough bottle to stick in your purse and take it to restaurants with you. I have only used this to sweeten lemonade or tea. It may take a little time to get used to this if you are switching from sugar. It doesn't cause the gastric upset that xylitol does. Stevia is also much better for your teeth than sugar. This is my favorite sweetener.
