Quote from: tac on May 15, 2021, 08:30:38 AMThanks for this post.I am a diabetic and I often use honey on my oatmeal, however, diabetics need to monitor their carb intake to prevent their glucose level from spiking. We use raw honey that has 17g of carbs in a tbsp. I use about .5 tsp on oatmeal along with stevia which has <1g of carbs.

I buy 16 oz bottles for about 30 bucks. 7 drops sweetens a 24 oz tea. I don't mind the sucralose with erythritol, but the powdered Splenda has Maltodextrin, which is not healthy, IMHO.For a creamer, you should try MCT Oil Powder. Some brands call it Keto Creamer. I pay 30 bucks for a two month supply. Creams well, with very little taste. Provides Omega 3 Fatty Acids, and has an energy boost that is real, not phony like energy drinks. It has numerous health benefits including staving off Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.You can buy smaller portions to try it out. Start slow. The energy boost can be surprisingly potent.

As to the Splenda Naturals I use it is strictly Stevia leaf with erythritol. I also use collagen in my first cup of the day. That extra boost of protein for me. Toy
Quote from: tiny1 on June 12, 2021, 04:23:48 AMThe MCT oil powder is the difference. I swear by this stuff. I can't eat Stevia. Bitter, and I am sensitive to it. I use liquid Sucralose(Splenda) in drinks, Erythritol for 90% of my cooking, and ALlulose/Erythritol for baking. Certain things call for Monkfruit sweetener. Very few.If you can, pick up some MCT oil powder. Odorless, tasteless and mixes fairly easily. I think you'll like the effects. Some folks I know say it helps the sleep, others say it thwarts their fatigue. Curbs my appetite, adds essential fatty acids, and gives me a Jolt of energy, but not the "cheap" kind.
