Who needs sugar?

Good sugar substitute
There is no sugar substitute that I've tried that tastes just like sugar, but this is close enough. While I find that it doesn't usually work great on its own in baked goods, it does work beautifully when I combine it two to one with Ideal brand sugar substitute. I make a low carb fudge like brownie that is an excellent treat for my family, and one I don't feel guilty about making for them. We can't expect baked goods to taste exactly like sugar when we've cut it out, but really, with a little experimenting it can get close enough ... and healthier, too. Agree, though, that this product could be priced a lot lower. It's a shame that the healthier the food the higher the price.

This product works well.
I used it to make my holiday pies and bread and everything turned out delicious. It's a bit on the pricey side, but I like the fact that it isn't sugar and that it is made from fruit peels. I feel it is safer than the other non-sugar sweetners on the market.

I love this product!
Just Like Baking Sugar is by far the best sugar substitute I've used in baking. It gives a good and distinctive taste (could it be the chicory root?) to baked goods. So far I have made brownies and cocount cake (w/o icing) and and pleased with the results. I am grateful that it does not raise the blood sugar levels. My bf is diabetic, so I have to make sure that he eats low GI foods, which I am also willing to do for longevity and a healthy life.
I jsut wish JLBS was a little cheaper. I will use JLBS for occasional baking.

My favorite sweetener!!!
I really like this sweetener. It is natural and healthy and tastes good. I use the baking sweetener for making gluten free cookies. They come out good. I use the table top sweetener in my tea and I sprinkle it over berries. It is low glycemic so it does not raise blood sugar or cause yeast. It does not have a bitter aftertaste like stevia. This is my favorite sweetener.
