    Hi Harmony,
    Do you have any experience with SweetzFree? It is a liquid that they claim has zero Carbs and zero Cals. It is extreemly concentrated. I believe it is Sucralose though. I purchase it on the internet. I detest Stevia and am hoping because one drop of this sweetner is the same as a teaspoon of sugar it might be safe to use.

    1. Hi Cheryl,
      Unfortunately, SweetzFree is in fact sucralose-based, according to their website, so I could not recommend it. If you check my earlier blog posts, you’ll see my opinion on sucralose:

      Maybe you just need a different brand of stevia. They vary greatly as to how they taste. The KAL brand is pure concentrate with no fillers and no aftertaste at all, at least to me. It has the tiniest little spoon included in the bottle, so that you don’t use too much, which would make any stevia taste bad. Come to think of it, have you tried reducing the amount of stevia to see if it only became bitter because of too much being used? If you prefer a liquid like the sweetener you asked about, the KAL pure stevia extract does come in a liquid. If you check reviews on Amazon or, you’ll find that most say that they don’t like other stevias, but do like this one, so it’s worth a try for you. NOW also makes a similar stevia called Better Stevia, and some like the one with glycerin in it, which is fine, too. I’ve found the best prices at for all of these. Use the coupon code CIN183 to get $5 off your first order if you haven’t bought at this site before.

  2. What about Truvia? Is that ok?

    1. Truvia is stevia, but it does have a sugar alcohol added to it, erythritol. As long as you don’t overdo it, Truvia could work. Overdoing sugar alcohols will cause some gastric distress you won’t like, but as I explained in the original blog post, this one is the least likely to cause you problems out of all the sugar alcohols.

  3. What about the new sweetner made from Monk Fruit? I think it is sold under the brand name Nutresse.

    1. Nectresse contains not just the Monk Fruit, but also erythritol, sugar, and molasses, making it a bad choice because of the sugar/molasses. Just what I’d expect from the makers of Splenda, who also make Nectresse.
