The Sweets On Sweeteners

I know a lot of low carb dieters are unsure of what kind of sweeteners they should use, but the truth of the matter is that you pretty much cannot go wrong when it comes to choosing a sweetener. While you are on a low carb diet, all you really have to remember is that you want to choose a sweetener that tastes as close as it possibly can to regular sugar so you can be able to eat your favorite foods, add a little sweetener, and not get that horrible aftertaste that a lot of sweeteners have. Some say that “Splenda” is the best to use when on a low carb diet because it is the one that taste almost exactly like regular sugar. This is all dependent upon taste. Not everyone likes the same sweetener, so choosing on you will be able to stick to is important. You may even want to try sampling some sweeteners.
