Xylitol and stevia are my sweetners of choice.Make sure they are 100% pure with no fillers.You can grow stevia in your  backyard aly.

Stevia in plant form can be used as a herb or it comes in powder form.  Very highly concentrated powder, real sweet its the only one I use.

I prefer xylitol.  I find that stevia still has that aftertaste.

Yea it took me a while to get used to it. It is 0 carb and not bad if you go easy using it.

Aly it is sweet and wonderful cut up in salads or used chopped in salsas.But alittle goes along way!I like to mix it fresh in with a berry salad.You can dry the leaves by hanging upside down and then boil with food or tea.In south florida you can grow it year round and harvest as needed,but use a globe so it doesn't bolt during the summer from lack of water.i bought my stevia plants in key west at the home depot. :)

Whey Low is 4 grams of carbs per teaspoon, just like sugar it's not what you want to be using if you wish to lose weight....poison!

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)
