3 of 3 people found the following review helpfulJuly 11, 2015Reviewer: Kate in Indiana* So, this stuff tastes like cotton candy. It's got a little bit of the luo han guo aftertaste, but it's not terrible. The texture is a little sticky, which it offputting at first, but as far as taste goes, this is a 4 star sweetener. I used it in drinks (coffee, tea, milkshakes, etc) as well as baked goods, though I mostly mixed it with straight erythritol, and it was fine.
I'm on a ketogenic diet, and this sweetener kicked me straight out of keto. I guess everybody's body is different, but on further research (feel kind of dumb for not doing this beforehand) monosaccharide is sugar. Who knew. No wonder I'm hungry, bloated, and am having sugar crashes.
Anyway, taste is fine, but not great. If this were truly keto-friendly, I might give it 4 stars. It's not.
