* This product is amazing!! I have used it for many frostings and glazes, and no one can tell it is sugar-free. I especially like it for cream cheese frostings. I have also used it to sweeten homemade whipped cream and it is fantastic.
* I wanted really, REALLY badly to like this. I did. But alas, I could not.
I tried it in frosting and it came out gummy and lumpy no matter how much I beat it. I tried it in a glaze and it was just...off. Perhaps it's OK for sprinkling on top of some LC French toast or something, but that's about it.
Overall, the product is like mixing sweetener with wheat protein isolate or vital wheat gluten. Yes, it's powdery-- but as soon as it gets wet, it turns into a dense, sticky mush in the same way flour would.
* I've used this in frostings, on top of Oopsie Bread, it really is a great substitute for powdered sugar. It's the only thing that I've found to get the correct frosting texture without having a funny taste.
* Giving it a 5 because I've only used it for one thing--and it was fantastic. As low carbers we really miss traditional Christmas cookies. But this year I made rum balls with this powder and substituted NOW almond flour for the crushed vanilla wafers. We were in heaven!
* I tried this product for the first time today. It has the fine granularity of confectioners sugar, and it is sweet. But the similarities end there. It really doesn't taste anything like the real thing. Another reviewer gave it 5 stars and used it for cake frostings. I haven't tried this so maybe it magically transforms into something delicious. I suppose I will try that next.
