Zylosweet contains the natural alternative to sugar, Xylitol. It tastes like sugar but has 40% fewer calories (one teaspoon supplies 9.6 calories), so it’s ideal as part of a weight management programme. Used to sweeten drinks, desserts and cooking, ZyloSweet has a low glycaemic index (GI) so it has minimal impact on blood glucose levels. Xylitol can safely be used by diabetics. It may also help maintain teeth free of decay. When first using ZyloSweet, increase your daily intake gradually until your body has adjusted. Large quantities of Xylitol may have a laxative effect, so build up slowly.
Why is this a superfood? Because it provides a healthy alternative to sugar and is useful as part of a weight management plan
Since ZyloSweet inhibits yeast, it cannot be used to raise yeast in baking. It is also not suitable for making meringues.
Do not feed xylitol to dogs; if consumed, seek veterinary advice.

It's not very far off from normal sugar if off at all.
I think it's a matter of getting used too it at first it was like hmm this is different but then at times it tasted just like sugar so it's kinda hard where to place it.
But it defiantly tastes closed to sugar as alternative I've ever known.
I'm just about to buy it for the second time as I write this.

This product is ideal for me as ordinary sugar is a no no for as I have a yeast intolerance, so I find this substitute enables me to still sweeten my food and drinks, very pleased with it.
