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:
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.
