I suffer from manic depression and anxiety. My mood is heavily impacted by food, particularly the amount of sugar in it. I've been trying to cut sugar for quite some time but I've just not been able to take my coffee without some. I can't stand the synthetic taste of artificial sweeteners, especially the after taste. A good friend of mine put me on to Erythritol a little over six months ago and I could not believe what I was, or more accurately wasn't, tasting.
I look forward to my coffee everyday just like I used to and don't have the guilt or dread of that teaspoon of sugar. I've also noticed quite a difference in my mood between the sugar and erythritol - a small change but a big impact on my day to day.
I find Naturally Sweet very well priced and placed in the market and have recommended the product to many friends. (Posted on 18/02/2020)
I am very sensitive to artificial sweeteners. I can taste that they have been added to drinks and foods a mile away. I have tried the natural alternatives like Stevia and still can't take to the aftertaste. I bought this product as another attempt to try and find something as a substitute for sugar. I wasn't optimistic but thought I would give it a go. What a surprise! It has the same look and consistency as white sugar and no bitter aftertaste. You need a little more than a normal teaspoon of sugar to get the same sweetness, but it does the trick! I have had no issues at all with using it. I have used it in cooking and also a blueberry sorbet recipe, which was fantastic. I highly recommend this product. (Posted on 18/11/2018)
Can't believe how much this tastes like sugar, yet no blood sugar spikes and no nasty aftertaste. Bought the 2.5kg bag after buying this one cos I love it so much!
Almost too good to be true! (Posted on 10/11/2018)
