I’m often asked how to bake with stevia, how to substitute liquid stevia for powdered, or how many packets of stevia are equal to 1 tsp of powder.

The answer is that it depends greatly on the brand of stevia you are using. The following chart pertains only to NuNaturals stevia, the brand I recommend above all others, as it’s the only one I’ve found to not have a weird aftertaste. Stevia conversion chart amounts are based on my personal experience with the brand as well as some help from Ron (vice president, sales and marketing at NuNaturals).

Stevia Conversion Chart:

  • 1/32 tsp pure stevia extract (pure stevia means the only ingredient is stevia)
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/16 tsp pure stevia extract (only ingredient is stevia)
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 NuNaturals stevia packet
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 NuNaturals stevia packet
  • 1/2 tsp NuNaturals powder
  • 1 NuNaturals stevia packet
  • 1/32 tsp pure stevia extract
  • 1 packet No Carbs Blend
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 7 drops Alcohol Free Vanilla Stevia (liquid)
  • 2 tsp sugar

 

Once again, this chart pertains only to NuNaturals stevia, as different brands contain different amounts of powder. Also if one of my recipes calls for sugar, that doesn’t mean I am saying it’s ok to sub stevia for the sugar (unless I’ve specifically listed stevia as an option in the ingredients, which is oftentimes the case). When the chart says 1 packet is equal to 1 tbsp, that is referring to sweetness. You still must take other factors into account when subbing, such as how the change will affect the bulk of a recipe or its cooking time.

    Where is NuNaturals Stevia sold? I don’t recall having seen it in stores. The only stevia whose taste I like is KAL Pure Stevia. It’s nice to know there is one out there that you like too.

    1. I find it at Whole Foods or Sprouts and have also seen it at little health food shops and Wegmans. You can ask to see if a store will stock it… Or you can always just order it from nunaturals.com.

    How does a nunaturals stevia packet equate to the nunaturals liquid vanilla stevia? Can liquid be used in place of packet for coconut crack bars?

    Thanks, Stephanie

    Hi Katie,
    Why do some recipes call for both sugar and stevia? Also, what’s the difference between pure stevia, uncut stevia, and a stevia packet? And is stevia extract the drops of liquid? Thanks.

    1. Katie says:

      Please answer this question as I am wondering the exact same thing. Thank you!

        Hello – Uncut Stevia powder is stevia that is not “cut” with other ingredients or fillers. Pure Stevia in its “uncut” form is over 200 times sweeter than sugar.

    Hi, Katie,

    Was given your cookbook for a late Christmas gift. =) Love it!

    Went to the NuNaturals website today. They have a dizzying array of products to choose from. I am still confused as to which products, exactly, that you use. Or maybe the company has changed the names of their offerings? Everything is called NuStevia… but I have never seen you refer to their products that way. Could you post pictures, or give the exact name for the NuNatural stevia products that you use?

    Thank you so much for all you do for us! We love CCK! =)

  13. Judie says:

    which nunatural stevia does not have the maltodextrin fillers?

    1. The pure stevia does not have them. It’s the one where you use just 1/64 tsp.

  14. Pam Martin says:

    I’m new to your site and I am excited to try some of your recipes! I use liquid stevia and stevia packets but am not familiar with “uncut stevia” which one of your recipes calls for (pinch of) — could you explain for this cooking novice!

  15. Melissa says:

    Katie, I noticed on a recipe you referenced your preferred choice of granulated sugar. Do you consider the stevia you use to be granulated?

  16. Jan House says:

    Hi Katie,
    I forward your recipes and people are thrilled to get them. I try to encourage them to sign up for your emails!
    Can you name a good source for uncut stevia?
    Thanks!
