The new Trim Healthy Mama (THM) Pure Stevia is an amazing natural sweetener. ☺
THM Pure Stevia is not an artificial or chemical sweetener; it is made from the non-bitter, naturally occurring, sweet component of the herb stevia - a glycoside called Rebaudioside A. This naturally sweet component is isolated from the stevia leaf using a gentle water extraction process, with no bleaching involved. The THM Pure Stevia Extract is also so minimally processed, it has not even been granulated, which means it remains as a fine white powder – like a dust, which is unusual for stevia products, because most stevia is overprocessed.
In the last few months of using THM Pure Stevia and now the THM Sweet Blend, I've found that I've needed to adjust how much stevia I use in foods. THM's Pure Stevia and Sweet Blend are much more sweet than other stevia I've used over the last several years, so I find that I'm using a lot less than I used to.
Because THM Pure Stevia is such a fine white powder, it's a bit more challenging to store for repeated use. The bag in which it comes may not be convenient to zip and unzip repeatedly for everyone; some people would prefer a "shaker" type of storage container for their pure stevia extract.
I've used three different methods of storing my THM Pure Stevia. Now, in case you think I'm just a bit schizophrenic about storage containers, I've been using THM Pure Stevia for the last six months, as a beta tester. ☺ Thank you, Pearl and Serene!
This has given me some time to experiment with a few different containers for storing my THM Pure Stevia. I've used the following so far:
Now that you can clearly see the three containers I've used to store THM Pure Stevia, let me share with you how they've worked:
Have any of you been able to try out the new THM Pure Stevia or THM Sweet Blend yet? Just remember to use less than you would normally use, and you should taste a very pleasant sweetness, especially if you're already used to the taste of stevia.
If you are already using the THM Pure Stevia, are you keeping it in the zip-style bag, or are you storing it in another container? Your comments will help future readers, so thank you for being a part of Joy In Our Journey's community!

So have you used the Stevia powder to make the "Truvia" blend? How much of the Stevia did you use? I just received my THM Stevia and haven't made the blend yet. I was wondering how much to use?
Hi, Nicole! I haven't yet made a homemade "Truvia" type of blend because I was also sent a bag of Trim Healthy Mama's THM Sweet Blend - and it is a lot sweeter than Truvia or erythritol, so I'm going through it slower, which saves money! :)

I think I'll save my NuNaturals shaker and refill it. Thanks for the advice.

I love both the THM stevia and Sweet Blend and have found I need about half the amount of sweetener when using the Sweet Blend. That is going to amount to a significant savings in the long run!

I am so glad I saved my NuNaturals container! I found one empty in my cupboard!!

Thank you so much for sharing this info. I've been wondering which container would work best for the THM Stevia. I'm grateful to be able to take advantage of your experimentation!
