This is a better sweetener than, say, splenda, but I still prefer stevia. You can't taste whatever you are making to adjust the seasonings and sweetness before baking, as it has a cooling effect. I read about that, but hadn't realised it would be quite so powerful. I also find that this isn't nearly as easy on my digestion as stevia, given that it's a sugar alcohol and incompletely absorbed. The package is indeed very small, but a little bit definitely goes a long way.

a bit pricy, but certainly worth it. has a nicer after taste than other erythritol-products

Gram for gram, it is a bit less sweet than sugar, but if you make up the difference with a bit of stevia this is a great calorie free low carb alternative for sugar in baking. I just wish it cost a bit less.

Great sweetener in that it tastes like sugar. No strange taste at all. Highly recommmend.

Not as sweet as normal sugar but zero calorie

Tastes nearly the same as sugar, but nearly no calories. But not very suitable for baking, the taste changes when baked.

This is pure erythritol, a naturally occurring, nearly zero-calorie sweetener. To my palette it has no aftertaste and it does not cause gas like sorbitol. It does not dissolve easily in cold foods/liquids, so it is best used in hot substances, like oatmeal, tea, coffee; however, it dissolves easily into hot things and does not precipitate when it is cooled. So, I use it to make iced tea (from hot tea) and I sweeten things like baked apples/homemade applesauce, oatmeal, cream of wheat etc. Difficult to find these days as most stores are carrying Stevia, which has a bitter aftertaste. I have not tried baking with it but it can be used. Imagine cutting out 1 or 2 cups of sugar from a recipe! I only wish they still made it in the little packets, for convenience.

I use this product in my home made chocolate and in my oatmeal square recipe. Acts like sugar, I just wish it cost less.
