|What can brown do for you? Plenty.|
Have you been searching for an amazing brown sugar blend that doesn’t contain actual brown sugar (like other brown sugar subs) to accomplish what we didn’t think could be accomplished? Looking for a lower carb sugar replacement and bake mix with the amazingness of xylitol and the ability to simply measure and pour? Ideal No Calorie Sweetener is the Sonny to your Cher. It’s got you, babe.
Combining xylitol with maltodextrin (a polysaccharide and additive) with sucralose and molasses, this bake mix is simple to use. Just sub exactly like sugar! And because each bag contains the sweetness equivalent to two pounds of sugar, you’re going to have this on hand for some time.
I used the sweetener to make this decadent pumpkin cheesecake and was absolutely happy with the flavor and color. The molasses is minimal yet marvelous, and at .5 net carbs per tsp or 24 net carbs per cup, you can afford to make your favorite recipes and not panic about your carbs.
While the product contains a wee bit of sucralose for added sweetener, the product prides itself on being over 99% natural by volume, something people following a healthy, whole foods lifestyle can appreciate.
I was excited to try this product, and so made a caramel sauce with it almost immediately. The process was terrific, though there was some separation of liquids in the pan that I can’t necessarily blame on the product. I had also added vanilla, which likely caused the change (that was remedied through mixing and using the product while warm).I can’t wait to try cookies, breads, cakes and other recipes with their product!
The product performed like Johnny Weir on the red carpet when I used it for a rib and brisket rub I recently enjoyed. There was no perceivable difference between brown sugar and ‘the real thing’in terms of taste and performance. I’m sold.
It’s a breath of fresh air to finally score a xylitol brown sugar product that is actually lower in carbohydrates.That said, I’ll definitely continue to use this sweetener. I mean come on; a brown sugar sub with all the benefits of xylitol, including the promotion of tooth health? I think of it this way–You won’t have to gum your cookies.
