I bought this new amazon stevia drop flavored product, and immediately I noticed that it did not report the same instructions as the previous amazon stevia powder packages that I buy regularly. I started to research the secrets of stevia and this is what I found.
It depends on what you want to replace!
Stevia is a sweetener that we use instead of sugar. But there are several types of sugar. Usually, I relied on the usual conversion 1 teaspoon of sugar means 1 teaspoon of powder or drops. It is not so!
On the latest amazon stevia drop related product purchase, there is this curious box that asks me which sugar I want to replace. Brown sugar? Caster sugar? Honey? Depending on the sweetener you use in recipes, a slightly different amount of stevia should be used! Unbelievable!
1 teaspoon of powder (or 1 teaspoon of drops) is an excellent substitute for classic white sugar, granulated sucrose.
If you want to replace brown sugar, try using only 1/4 or 1/3 teaspoon of powder and 6-10 drops of liquid stevia. Brown sugar is, in fact, less strong than granulated sugar.
Finally, use only 1/16 of a teaspoon of powder or 2-5 drops if you need to replace honey.
The problem remains how to do the conversion correctly. Caster sugar should be counted in cups. For brown sugar instead, you should do the counting according to the spoon used (because it is used in less quantity, I think). Regarding honey, the teaspoon is what’s right.
The conversion tables are shown on the individual packs such as those of the stevia powder that I bought last. Those should only be used in the case of the use of large or medium quantities, so it is easier to use a scale and therefore do all the calculations faster.
