I just ordered an amazing product from LowCarbSpecialties.com.  Men’s Health recommended LCS’s sugar replacement “Sweet Perfection” product in their July/August issue.

Sweet Perfection

It is a sugar substitute that has…

  1. 0g net carbs
  2. provokes almost ZERO insulin response
  3. bakes just like sugar
  4. and tastes just like sugar

I ordered a bag, and I will get back to you in about a week or two to tell you the results.

  1. I’ll be curious to see how it tastes!

    Though I’m not a carb counter, so I’d also be curious how many calories it has. Thanks for the tip.

  2. 1 cup = 0 Net carbs…

    It has something like 3 or 4g of FIBER per cup.

    Oh, my – that does look promising! My weakness with regular sugar is that I like it in my coffee so I will be waiting to see what you think of it… Imagine making my coffee higher in fiber and sweet without the carbs.

  4. Kevin Scott says:

    Why not use Splenda (brand name for sucralose)? It is inert, zero calorie, zero glucose response, stable in heat and cold and, most of all, cheap. The generic at our Wal-Mart is about $5 for 250g.

    What’s the advantage to the sweet perfection stuff?

  5. “What’s the advantage to the sweet perfection stuff?”

    I would think two big reasons.

    1) This stuff is actually a healthy fiber with all the health benefits that follow

    2) I have found that Splenda (especially when you cook with it) has a pretty noticeable after taste.

    3) Also, if you worry about these kind of things, this is a natural root ground up, Splenda is as far as I know not natural. Yes, there are plenty of nasty natural things that are bad for you. But I don’t know, call me overly cautious, but I worry about man made replacements for things like sugar.

  6. John,

    I sent your sugar product link to a friend that was a Chemist for Battelle Institute and they were given a government contract some years ago to evaluate the Nutra-Sweet and that class of sweetners. The result was that they are very bad for your health.

    Anyway, I asked him if he knew anything about this product. We’ll see if he has any comments when I get his reply. ……….. steve

  7. Thanks Steve, I look forward to hearing what he has to say.

    Nice find – **keeping fingers crossed** I’m sure with all our resourcefulness we can uncover the facts and check it out to see if it “safe” – but so far it looks like it could be a pretty awesome product. Thanks for the tip! Lady Rose

    Has anyone tasted this sugar?

  12. Men’s Health magazine claims it has the sweetness of cotton candy.

  13. John,

    I got email back from my friend last night and he had never heard of the sugar. These scientist types don’t like to develop discussions much in areas they haven’t thoroughly examined. I suppose it at least could be good from the perspective that it doesn’t appear to be in the class of Nutra-Sweet, etc. as far as I can tell from what he said……………steve

  14. Well at least he didn’t have anything bad to say. 🙂

  15. Hey…I’ve been sitting here typing my BlogHer.org post for the last two hours with one eye closed…I poked myself in the eye with my finger, and now my contact lens is floating somewhere in the back of my eye and I can’t seem to find it. So the only way I can see anything is if I keep one eye closed, I guess it’s a good thing I do my writing at home and not at the Starbucks.

    Anyway, I wanted to ask you if you would contribute a post as a guest blogger for my “Be The Change” blog? I would give you full credit and a link back to your site. The week of July 23rd I’m asking a few people to help me out with a guest post, because I’ll be at the BlogHer conference.

    If you’re interested drop me an email – catherinesblog at yahoo.com

    BTW – The natural sugar thing seems pretty interesting…I’ll have to check it out better when I can actually see what I’m doing.

  16. I wouldn’t mind, I have a post in mind already.

  17. That’s great! Just send it to me anytime before the 23rd, once I know what day I will post it I’ll let you know. You’ll get full credit for the post, and I’ll link back to your blog.

    Thanks so much for your help, I really appreciate it.

    Catherine

  18. Enjoy your conference Catherine.

  19. I will. I’m really excited about it. That’s why I wanted to have guest post lined up for that week. So thanks again.

    Hi,

    I am just wondering what the difference is between these two “Chicory Root” Substitute Sugars are? And why are they so expensive? They both claim to have health benefits too, but are they true. We have heard so many times before about how healthy a new substitute sugar is to only find out differently. . . . .

    1. Sweet Perfections, cost $41.00 dollars for 2 pound bag
    http://www.lowcarbspecialties.com/sweet_perfection.html

    2. Just like Sugar, cost $19.00 dollars for 1 pound bag, 2 pounds would be $38.00.
    http://www.justlikesugarinc.com/

    They both have similar claims. . .although Sweet Perfections does not seem to sell any other place, but on it’s website, while Just like sugar can be bought from Whole Foods, Vitacost.com, and many other places. I’ve heard that “Just like Sugar” is also selling many places around the world, and you can get a free sample to test it out.

    Anyway, it looks like both of these products were created about the same time about 2007/2008. So, I would be interested in knowing the scope, and which one is probably the best product or are they pretty much the same?????AND WHY DO THEY COST SO MUCH>>>>>>The Average person can’t afford this sugar!!!! on a regular basis.
