    We love this sweetener! I have done A LOT of research on natural sweeteners and this is the one I chose for 2 reasons.

    #1 THE TASTE; I don't care how healthy a sweetener is, if it doesn't taste good you won't have a tendency to use it. Fructevia tastes the closest to actual sugar we have ever tried (and I have spared no expense in trying the "best" out there). There is NO aftertaste. There might be the slightest hint of a fruity flavor when you try it straight, but used in beverages or to sweeten other things you can't tell the difference. I am very picky about aftertaste; when other people can't pick up on it, I can.

    #2 THE SWEETENERS USED; Fruitose brand crystalline fructose and Stevia. Again, A LOT of research went into choosing this sweetener. The fructose used in Fructevia is not your average fructose. Most of the time it comes from corn. This fructose is made from pure sugar and has a purity level above 99.5%. I know fructose is getting a bad rap right now, but I believe when people start actually looking at the facts instead of all the hype, they will see that crystalline fructose is NOT the same as high fructose corn syrup. Especially for people with blood sugar issues, fructose can be a real help, with a glycemic index of only 19, it hardly raises your blood sugar levels at all. When you combine it with stevia, which has a glycemic index of 0, you have a winning combination.

    I believe this combination of sweeteners, Fruitose brand fructose and stevia, to be the best, for both health and taste.

    I gave my brother a bag of fructevia to try baking diabetic cookies, it made his cookies so good tasting, they tasted better than any sugar substitute that he has tried, very good tasting.
