In an effort to find great sugar alternatives, some friends and I sat down together and tried various natural sweeteners. Here's what we found: 1) Zsweet (erythritol) tasted the best. 2) Swerve (erythritol) had an aftertaste. 3) Xylosweet (xylitol) tasted great too. 4) Just Like Sugar Table Top Sweetener (chicory root) tasted alright but had some aftertaste. 5) Coconut sugar crystals (or palm sugar) tasted great - sort of like a brown sugar but not as moist. There's also a liquid form in a can. Some of my taste testers now use coconut sugar in their coffee. Coconut sugar has a glycemic index of 35 - not high but not as low as other sweeteners.Read more ›
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.
Maybe I'm overly sensitive to it, or something, but I had to move on and look for other options. The taste was pretty good, though - not exactly like sugar, and the cooling effect is certainly noticeable, but not unpleasant.
It gives off a little minty cooling effect as it's dissolving and a little of that taste remains. It can be distracting in certain beverages, enhance others, and be unnoticeable in others. For the most part though, it will sweeten without too many compromises.
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.

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.Read more ›
