Powdered Stevia Sweetener

Powdered Stevia Sweetener
Description:

All Natural Stevia Extract Powder with Maltodextrin sweetener.  Packaged in portion-sized sugar sized packets to ensure prevention of any type of contamination.  Gluten Free.  

Sweetening your lip balm:  Natures Garden has tested numerous sweeteners for lip balms.  We have found that a powdered stevia extract with maltodextrin works the best.  Simply add a very small amount of powdered stevia with maltodextrin to your flavoring, and add to your melted lip balm base. The maltodextrin was added to the stevia extract powder to help the sweetener flow better in lip balm or edible products; reducing the gritty feeling that you experience with plain stevia extract powder.  Maltodextrin is a food grade product made from the sugars of grain.  Both stevia and maltodextrin are all natural products.

*Note:  Since stevia is a natural plant material, it will have polarity (water loving characteristics).  Anytime you add a polar product to non-polar product (lip balm base made with 100% oil loving characteristics), the products will not dissolve; only disperse.  The addition of maltodextrin allows the stevia to disperse better in lip balm bases, but it will not completely dissolve.*

2 out of 5 stars Did not work well 08/10/2013
Reviewer: Patricia Phillips from Des Moines, IA US
Like the other reviews this did not work for us either. It clumped at the bottom, and it did not sweeten the lip balm.
2 out of 5 stars Kind of Bummed 12/30/2012
Reviewer: Elaine Chavez from Selma, CA US
I love the actual balm itself but for the life of me I could not get a good sweetened flavor and I followed the directions. I almost have to say it is just scented and not flavored. I was a little disappointed in it...
2 out of 5 stars Not sure how I feel about this product 03/03/2012
Reviewer: Laura Harris from WINNFIELD, LA US
The previous reviews are correct, it does seem to settle on the bottom of my balm mixture instead of blending, but so far I haven't noticed any grittiness in my finished balms. That being said, I wish there were more exact instructions included, such as the amount to use in relation to your balm base/mixture. So far I have not been able to find an amount that I am comfortable with using to really bring out the flavoring for fear of adding too much.
4 out of 5 stars It's okay 12/23/2010
Reviewer: Chantel Dorsey from Lake Stevens, WA US
I made a few tubs of lip balm earlier with the Stevia. It did look like it would be gritty, but it wasn't. One problem I seemed to have was that the Stevia settled at the bottom and didn't flavour the lip balm much. I could have made a mistake when mixing it, though. It also seemed to crystallize around the sides, but a little bit of scraping did the trick for that.
5 out of 5 stars A little goes a long way 10/20/2010
Reviewer: Crystal Rooker from Akron, OH US
I used this in the lip balm base. The lip balm page does explain that this disperses instead of disolve and thats true but its still great! A great price on a great product that works well! Even though it looked like it might be gritty in the final product it wasnt.
