Flavored liquid stevia drops have been developed to offer a better-tasting alternative to plain stevia extract. One of the chemical compounds that naturally occurs in stevia interacts with both one's sweet and bitter taste receptors, causing many consumers to be put off by stevia's bitter aftertaste. As a result, many stevia sweeteners are often blended with other sweeteners such as erythritol, aspartame and sugar to reduce the unpleasant taste sensation.

NOW Foods' zero-calorie BetterStevia collection includes a number of dessert-inspired sweetener flavors such as Dark Chocolate, English Toffee and French Vanilla. These alternatives to chemical and artificial sweeteners are made with pure stevia extract and serve as low-glycemic options for consumers who must be mindful of their blood glucose level.
