Swerve Sweetener Granular Gluten Free -- 16 oz
Works just like sugar.
I've eliminated sugar from my diet as a treat to myself, but still like baked goods once in awhile. Swerve is just like using sugar in baked goods. Cookies brown the same and so far I have never detected any bitter aftertaste as I have heard others complain of in Stevia, Splenda and other sweeteners. Very expensive, I think, but maybe the price will come down later. Sure hope so.

best tasting natural sugar alternative - i HATE stevia and truvia - leaves a bad taste in my mouth but this tastes just like real sugar and measures the same too. would highly recommend this.

Taste as expected, very good product. keep in mind doesn't melt like sugar so you might prefer the confectioners version :)

Not my cup of tea
In all fairness: I have a taste buds that are extremely sensitive to any chemical-y flavors, particularly in sweeteners. My husband did not mind it for coffee (but did not love it at all) but after testing it in a couple of sugar free baking recipes I had to toss it out. That is too bad because most reviews for the product are great (that's why I bought several bags of it) but I get this awful after-taste in the back of my palate and the odd taste (it is almost stevia-like) lingers in my mouth like glue for hours after consuming the product.
Even as I poured the Swerve into a canister the minute powder particles that floated up gave me the same odd feeling in my palate and nose.
Even when it is quite a bit more expensive, I prefer Norbu 100% (Monk Fruit) more than Swerve. Norbu has the consistency and taste of regular organic cane sugar without the blood sugar spike.

Perfect for baking!
EXCELLENT Zero cal baking. I bake a lot of clean treats, desserts, etc. this acts exactly like sugar, tastes just as sweet, zero aftertaste and works well in anything hot or cold. They need to sell it in 30# tubs!!
