I’m excited to tell you about Kiva Organic Stevia. I have a bad reaction to most sweeteners. Aspartame and Splenda give me very severe migraines. I’m talking about the kind where you’re sick to your stomach, every noise hurts, all light kills and forget moving your head, pain. I have worked very hard to avoid these products. It’s really not that easy anymore. Anything with the word diet in it I can pretty much know I need to stay away. There are many other items that I wouldn’t expect to have aspartame in it. Such as most every mint and chewing gum out there.
Stevia doesn’t give me migraines and it doesn’t have a nasty aftertaste. I can add it to anything that would need sugar and might my own diet “whatever”. So far I have added it to oatmeal, coffee, waffles, and muffins. I love this stuff and it doesn’t take much to sweeten with it.
Here is a conversion chart:
1 Tsp (sugar) = 1/8 Tsp (Kiva Organic Stevia)
1 Tbsp (sugar) = 1/3 Tsp (Kiva Organic Stevia)
1/4 cup (sugar) = 1/2 Tbsp (Kiva Organic Stevia)
1/2 cup (sugar) = 1 Tbsp (Kiva Organic Stevia)
1 cup (sugar) = 2 Tbsp (Kiva Organic Stevia)
As you can see a little bit goes a long way.
