I have always been of the opinion that sugar substitutes never really work! Incidentally, last time I went to my doc, we fell into talking about sugar cravings and how to prevent diabetes. That was when he assured me that sugar substitutes actually work very well towards preventing diabetes.
But, I still have my doubts on how many calories they reduce? These sugar substitutes have weird tastes which hinder with the taste and flavor of the food. This was a problem with even the natural sweetener, stevia. Stevia leaves a very raw and harsh flavor behind.
So, when I got a chance to try out this sugar substitute, I decided to give it a try! And, lets see whether I liked it or not. Now, before proceeding, I would like to add that I can not really comment on how many calories this substitute reduces!! Now, lets check out its essentials.
