Note: This chart compares 4 types of packaged stevia (stevia blends in packets and in some other form such as a jar or shaker) with artificial sweeteners that have been bulked up to equal sugar volume for volume.

Note 2: To avoid a bitter taste: Although stevia sweetening strengths vary from one brand to another, when you use a brand high in steviosides, you can achieve a sweeter taste without bitterness. This chart is based on using an extract with over 90% steviosides and a minimum of 30% rebaudiosde A. Consequently, when using a pure stevioside with less then the stated requirements, reduce the amount of stevia listed on the chart above by about 30% - the final product will not be as sweet, but you'll avoid the bitter taste.
