I didn’t care for Stevia, even the pure extract, the after-taste wasn’t that bad, and I probably could have lived with that, but each time I tried it I felt that I experienced a mild but weird Candida-like-reaction from it. So I switched to Truvia and didn’t experience the after-taste or the weird reaction, and use it now every morning in chicory coffee. Truvia is a Stevia-based product, and I realize that considering this, all of this makes no sense, but I don’t argue with what my body tells me.
By the way, I also received a less-mild reaction when I tried Xyiotol, call me weird, it’s not like it’ll be the first time. =)
