Stevia Conversion Chart

If you’re dealing with the insulin resistance that accompanies PCOS, and you really really want to bake or have a touch of sweet, here is a conversion chart for the use of both powdered and liquid Stevia.  Although Stevia is controversial for some die hard Paleo lifestylers, it is the lesser of all evils if you are dealing with issues with insulin and trying to bake. Be sure to use the pure form of Stevia and NOT the brands that have other added ingredients (they often include other sweeteners that are not even controversial for Paleo eaters, they are NOT allowed).

I do not eat Stevia daily, and try to limit my consumption of sweets in general.

Sugar amount Equivalent Stevia powdered extract Equivalent Stevia liquid concentrate
1 cup 1 teaspoon 1 teaspoon
1 tablespoon 1/4 teaspoon 6 to 9 drops
1 teaspoon A pinch to 1/16 teaspoon 2 to 4 drops
