Finally made the switch to using a sugar substitute after my dentist recommended it. This one is by far the best I've found, once you get used to the taste, it's great in hot drinks or even sprinkled on food!

Cannot do without sugar in tea and need to lose weight, so in order to help me on both fronts, I gave this a try. It is excellent in baking as well as in drinks Unlike oversweet stevia, it does not taste of anything other than normal sugar, which means you can have your cake, and eat it.

It's not very far off from normal sugar if off at all. I think it's a matter of getting used too it at first it was like hmm this is different but then at times it tasted just like sugar so it's kinda hard where to place it. But it defiantly tastes closed to sugar as alternative I've ever known. I'm just about to buy it for the second time as I write this.

This product is ideal for me as ordinary sugar is a no no for as I have a yeast intolerance, so I find this substitute enables me to still sweeten my food and drinks, very pleased with it.
