Truvia Review



I’m pretty careful when it comes to choosing a zero calorie sweetener. There are so many chemical-filled messes out there, and the majority of them have some nasty side effects. It has always been a battle, do I put a zero calorie sweetener in my coffee and endure the painful headaches/stomach aches that are damaging my health or do I just bite the bullet with the calorie laden sugar? Then I tried the stevia sweetener,  Truvia, and everything changed.

I have been hearing about stevia for years. I have seen it in many recipes on all the health and fitness boards I follow and have had it recommended to me by reputable fitness professionals numerous times. The problem was, I still found it gross. Through trial and error I had found that not all stevia is the same (I still don’t know why) but I tried generic brands, and almost all the varieties found at my local grocery store. The only one I hadn’t tried was Truvia, so when I had some sent to me for this review I was interested to see if there would be a taste difference.

There was.

Truvia tastes just like sugar and adds a zero calorie option for your coffee, tea and bakingI had high expectations, I have seen Truvia’s commercials and when they’re claiming that you can sprinkle it on fruit (just like sugar) I assumed it had a sweet taste. You can’t do that with any other sweetener out there. I first tried it in my coffee (it’s my most common use) and I was instantly relieved. It’s the closest sweetener to sugar I have tried. 1/3 of a teaspoon is the equivalent to a teaspoon of sugar, and to be totally honest I couldn’t really tell the difference between Truvia and sugar.

Another great use for Truvia is in baking. I recently made a batch of Chocolate Carrot Cake Homemade Protein Bars and used Truvia as the sweetener, and they turned out awesome. There is no funny taste when you use Truvia in baking (unlike the aspartame loaded sweeteners) and the fact that the fitness professionals that I look up to use Truvia, makes me that much more confident in the product. The only downside to Truvia is the cost, I do find it quite pricy at the grocery store that I shop at.

I will continue to use Truvia, I like how it comes in either the tub (pictured above) or convenient single packs that you can easily put in your purse.

  1. I hate artificial sweeteners! I can always taste the chemically taste! When I tried Trivia I was so shocked that it tasted normal! Love it!

  2. I had the same problem with many sweeteners, that terrible taste! Will keep this in mind next time I go shopping!

  3. Truvia is all I use, I substitute for sugar and sweetener. It’s the only I use too. 🙂

  4. I love Truvia.. My sister got me started using it, and it’s by far the best sugar replacement I have found!

  5. I keep hearing about this, so I’ll have to check it out. I don’t like most artificial sweeteners because of the after-taste and because you shouldn’t eat them while pregnant. This sounds like a good, healthy alternative. Thanks for sharing.
