It's way superior to the other sugar-alcohol products. With erythritol, I've never noticed the digestive side effects that maltitol and sorbitol cause if you consume any significant amount.
In addition to cooking, coffee, mixing in shakes, etc., I also use this when I want a bit of chocolate. Here's my trick: I get dark, dark chocolate (85-90% cocoa), which has only a very small amount of sugar - typically about 4 grams per serving. Then I put a little bit of this ZSweet powder in a saucer, and dip the chocolate in it for a dusting before taking a bite. That allows me to eat high quality chocolate, and to get some decent sweetness, without the sugar and without the side effect of sugar alcohols in most sugar-free chocolate.
*** Update 3 June 2012 ***
After using up my first batch, I ordered another. This one isn't the same. The product is coarser, and does not dissolve nearly as well. In cold drinks, it pools at the bottom unless I vigorously stir and shake.
Also, one of the two packages had a defect and leaked at the bottom. I thought I was just pouring wrong until I found the leak, after sweeping up a couple of times.
So I subtracted a star from my previous enthusiastic review. We'll see on the next batch if they fix these problems. If not, I might have to look elsewhere for erythritol.
*** Update 7 March 2013 ***
There is now a mainstream brand of erythritol in most supermarkets. It's from the people who make Splenda, and it's called Nectresse. You can also get it on Amazon: NECTRESSE Natural No Calorie Sweetener, 140 Serving Canister It's mostly erythritol with some other ingredients, and is made from monk fruit. Still negligible calories. At this point, I've switched over to Nectresse because of the inconsistent packaging and granularity of ZSweet.
Nectresse is somewhat more expensive than ZSweet - about a buck an ounce for Nectresse vs. sixty cents an ounce for ZSweet. But you don't have to buy nearly as much.
Also in both the drinks and the brownies there is a "cool" sensation on the tongue briefly after eating or drinking z sweet sweetened items. While this is not unpleasant, it is different and noticeable.
I did not have any strange aftertaste or digestive problems with this product as I do if I ingest splenda etc. Once in awhile I do not see the artificial products on an ingredient list and unintentionally eat a food with an artificial sweetener. It gives me digestion fits so I go back and see on the label listed the artificial sweetener.
To summarize - I will use to sweeten drinks. I will not use for any further baking adventures.
I read an artificial sweetener review in Cook's Illustrated. They had great things to say about Zsweet in beverages...calling it "brilliant". Sure...uhuh.... I thought. Doubt it! But I tried it anyway. I was delighted to find out they were right. In coffe, tea, and homemade lemon or limeade, sprinkled over strawberries, I can't tell the difference between sugar and Zsweet. It really is...brilliant!
Two things to note, because erythritol is only 70% as sweet as sugar, I use more of it than I would sugar. But 25% more of zero calories is still zero calories! I've tried it as a sweetener in whipped cream, and it makes the whipped cream gritty.
It seems silly to say that a product enhanced my quality of life... but I'm enjoying two important things again (coffee and tea) that I had not in some time.
It works. I've not used it for baking, but it serves perfectly well as an inoffensive zero-calorie sweetener. I use it to take the edge off batches of yogurt that end up on the too tart side. I've used it in sweet teas. The only downside I've found so far is that it tends to glop up a bit in the bottom of the cup of hot tea or cocoa. I think it would work just fine if I melted it in a bit of warm liquid and shook it up good before adding it to the beverage, but I have other sweeteners that serve that purpose without the extra work and this has filled a niche I didn't know I had. I keep a bag at work for those days when I'm headed out the door at the last minute and grab a yogurt without taking the time to add fruit. The resealable package is sturdy and prevents messy spillage. I don't know if I'll buy it again, but it was a happy accident this time around.
