    xylitol versus Stevia

    I saw the recipe for mug cake and it calls for xylitol. how different is that from Stevia? Can you substitute Stevia instead?

    You can but it won't be very good.

    I am sure you can... But I can tell you once you go xylitol you won't go back I can't stand stevia....so much so that I only drank water my entire cycle. Now that I am on P3 I will use xylitol and then on P4 will move on to Whey Low.

    I think I have seen a recipe floating around using Stevia.

    Me too! I hate Stevia, and use only Xylitol as a sugar substitute. You can use it in place of sugar anywhere, and the birch type is FAR better than the corn type. Get it at globalsweet.com

    Great! I am brand new and I love Xylitol; after using stevia for years I don't ever want to go back so I'm glad to hear that it is okay...I thought it was but wasn't positive. I have been using it a few months for my morning tea and now I can't find it in Anchorage. Glad to know where to order it. I love this forum!

    I tried the mug cake in my first try at p3 (had to go back to injections now back on p3) - and I got so sick. Tried it twice, different days. Someone told me it was probly the xylitol - so now I am scared to try it! Any ideas or anyone else have xylitol make them sick?

    Thank you Julie! I did find it at Natural Pantry and Fred's both, didn't think to look in the natural section duh! I also ordered from globalsweet.com as DeeGee suggested and it's already here...I like that it is made in the US from hardwood rather than 'internationally' from corn.
    Fitfan, one thing I read about xylitol is that it can have a laxative effect in a large enough dose - so that makes me think that some people new to it may need to slowly introduce it to their systems.

    Yep!! Sends me running to bathroom everytime. I've used Kal stevia for years and I don't notice an after taste. Maybe I'm used to it but I can't stand any other brand. I'm thinking if adding zylitol a little at a time, mixed with stevia, to see if I can tolerate it and build up to using it. It didn't take much to affect me the few times I did try it.

    OH I just noticed that was you, Fit.........LOL
