When I received my sample of Nectresse as a member of Social Spark, I decided to try it using all the ways I normally use Splenda. NECTRESSE is a Natural No Calorie Sweetener and is 150 times sweeter than sugar. It can be used in cooking and baking to add natural, zero calorie per serving sweetness in your favorite beverages and a delicious variety of foods. Because Grumpy is a diabetic, I was encouraged by Lisa Ling, who is also a diabetic and spokesperson for NECTRESSE, to sample this product. I was very happy to try this product because it is the only 100% natural sweetener made from fruit – monk fruit extract, which in my opinion, makes it a better choice!
While I didn't try it in baked goods this time around, I did use it the way I use my sweetener every day - in my hot coffee/iced coffee. Because Grumpy is diabetic, I decided that when I made our coleslaw that I would try it in place of the regular sugar to make it carbohydrate free. I couldn't tell the difference and did not have any bitter aftertaste after consuming this product. If you would like to try this product, you can request a free sample by visiting Nectresse.com and while you are there, check out their recipe section! (you know I did!).
