No matter how much you try to smile and down your plain yogurts and cereals in the morning, it isn't much fun to eat foods without flavor. Unfortunately, flavor usually comes hand in hand with calories. This is where Zsweet comes in. It's a zero calorie sweetener that is sugar-free, all natural, kosher, and vegan. For me, the big seller with this sweetener is that it's honestly zero calories. Splenda, for example, has calories, but there is an FDA law stating that the nutritional information is allowed to say 0 calories if it's less than 5. Those calories can add up if you use more than one packet, each of which has 4 calories. Zsweet contains carbs that aren't turned into calories by the body. Erythritol, a naturally occurring sweetener found in common foods like fruit, is the main ingredient.
The version I bought came in a canister that has a dual-top spout for easy usage. It looks exactly like regular white sugar, except the granules are a little smaller. I dipped my finger in the top and tasted it plain, and I could mistake it for sugar. I mixed some in with my yogurt and cereal this morning, and it was delicious! You can even use Zsweet in baking and cooking.
There are 4 carbs in Zsweet, but they come from the erythritol, which isn't turned into calories. Other than the carbs, the nutritional panel is blank, which is always a good sight to see. :)
