March 18, 2018Reviewer: Kreela in Virginia* I approve of a new sugar substitute that doesn’t have a strong aftertaste. Monkfruit and Stevia are the only other natural products available, always mixed with erythritol, which is supposed to invoke flatulence and is not as sweet.
As advertised, allulose looks and acts like sugar. It mixed into my tea without any granular pieces or cloudiness. The tea tasted...not sweet. I realize I am used to super-sweet stevia now, which is not as good as splenda (too bad splenda has been tagged as carcinogenic!). I probably need to try adding a full cup to the gallon+ container or mixing it with stevia, but the allulose only managed to work for two container-fulls.
So I docked 2 stars for cost. It is not cost-effective yet. I hope it becomes more available. Even better, I would love to see it substituted for erythritol with the stevia.
March 13, 2018Reviewer: Jonathan in California* I have usually have a terrible gut reaction to sugar alcohols... you know know what I mean. This is the first sugar replacement that hasn't caused me to have to spend all day in the restroom! I have yet to have a negative reaction to this sugar substitute.
My only gripe is that this only comes in a 1lb bag....

This one was the worst of them all! I was a painful gasy mess for days! Not recommended. OR, try a bit before you commit. You an your family/friends/roommates will thank me.
