Sweeten those “hard to get right” treats with Gentle Sweet and you can bank on the “yum!” word passing your lips. The Trim Healthy Mama community fell in love with our pure Stevia extract and Super Sweet Blend, but some of you kept begging us for a sweetener that popped like pure sugar itself. Gentle Sweet blend has a cotton candy taste but won’t mess with your blood sugar.Xylitol is often the sweetener of choice for those who can’t seem to get their taste buds around Stevia. The problem with using Xylitol as your chief sweetener is that it can be too easily overdone. It is hundreds of times less sweet than Stevia and unlike Stevia it contains calories which can really add up since large amounts are needed to pack that sweet punch. Large amounts can also cause digestive issues like gas and bloating. Gentle Sweet contains some xylitol for that perfect frosting like taste, but is sensibly blended with a small amount of Stevia extract and non GMO erythritol. The result is a smoothly powdered gentle sweetener that is still twice as sweet as both sugar and Xylitol. And finally a word from doggies everywhere: “Please keep your Xylitol baked goods away from us. Our canine digestive systems cannot handle it and it can be fatal for us if you turn your back to answer the phone and we sneak your chocolate muffin from the counter top- woof woof.” *PLEASE NOTE: As we NEVER put fillers or anti-caking agents in ANY of our products, please gently massage the bag before use to avoid clumps.
