Whey Low Sugar Replacement.

Per their website the carb count is 1 gram per teaspoon - Has anyone tried?

So far I have found xylitol the best tasting without nasty aftertaste and have even ground to the closest as possible to confectioners sugar when needed.  

Whey low offers several different options - Granulated, Confectioners, Maple and some type of Ice Cream formulated sugar - would make some dessert making a little easier.

What are your thoughts?  Am I reading something incorrectly?

Thanks in advance!!  :o)

Hi, rene! :)

I looked at Nutrition Facts label.
It says that 1 tsp has 4g total carbs with 4g carbs from sugar (NOT sugar alcohols).

http://www.wheylow.com/Whey-Low-Granular-Natural-Sweetener-p/1028.htm

Where they get 1g net carbs per serving does not make sense. So I don't trust it.

For confectioners sugar replacement, I use erythritol.
It's not very sweet but works great for the "powdered sugar presentation" effect.
I will occasionally use xylitol if bulk is needed.
Otherwise, I use Sucralose (Zero) for all other sweetening needs.

Hi Tony,

Thanks for replying.  I was confused with how they got the 1 gram carb - maybe being semi new - they are confused on calculations!!  :o)

I've never used erythritol - I am going to order and give a try!

Thanks again, have a WONDERFUL day!
Rene

You're very welcome, rene!

This is an example of why reading nutrition labels is so important.
Unlike fats and protein, the FDA rules on reporting net carb content are very weak.
We sometimes must also read the ingredients lists (which are accurate) with the sneakier food packagers.

I hope you have a great day, too! :)

hi rene....I use zero for sweetening.   Xylitol had brought out a powdered form (like confectioner's sugar - it was so handy),  but I haven't seen it around for a while.  You might try surfing the net and see if it is still around.   :)
