Truvia® Natural Sweetener Product Review

Hey everyone!

I recently received a pack of Truvia Natural Sweetener in my Influenster Love VoxBox, and I wanted to share with you my thoughts on this product now that I have used it.

I have always used real sugar whenever I've wanted to sweeten my drinks or something I'm eating.  So, I was pretty intrigued by this product and wanted to know how it would compare to regular sugar.  Basically, Truvia is an extract taken from stevia leaves.  Hence, the sweet taste of Truvia is a natural characteristic of those leaves.

When I opened my first pack of Truvia, I noticed a very sweet scent that smelled like vanilla.  I also noticed that the Truvia grains don't look like sugar grains.  Sugar is normally uniform and cube shaped whereas the Truvia grains ranged from powder to big and spherical.  The Truvia seemed to dissolve into my tea just like sugar.  After my first sip of Truvia sweetened tea, I noticed that the Truvia didn't taste like regular sugar; I think that Truvia tastes like high-fructose corn syrup.  After drinking some more, I also noticed that the sweet taste of Truvia lasts longer than regular sugar.

Overall, I think Truvia would be great product to try out if you are trying to cut down on your sugar consumption or are trying to lose weight.  Also, if you have diabetes, this might be a great ingredient to add to your food because it does not affect the glucose levels in your body.  Since I don't think I need to change my sugar consumption and I prefer the taste of real sugar, I think I'll just stick to my regular sugar.

I hope you enjoyed this review, and let me know if you have any questions or requests in the comments below!
