1 of 1 people found the following review helpfulJanuary 03, 2018Reviewer: Miriam in Massachusetts* I've tried both the granular and the confectioners, in multiple recipes. It took me a while to realize that the Swerve was causing my throat to burn. I haven't had that experience with other brands of erythritol, and my kids don't seem to get that same reaction. But for me, it makes food inedible. Sad, because it's hard to find a good powdered sugar substitute. I am going to try making my own from xylitol.
1 of 2 people found the following review helpfulAugust 17, 2014Reviewer: Nicole in Colorado* Despite the high price, I decided to try Swerve due to the many recommendations by low-carb bakers. It has a bizarre odor and aftertaste, along with a strange powder that gets in the air every time the bag is opened. I much prefer ZSweet, both for the taste and the price.
2 of 2 people found the following review helpfulSeptember 27, 2013Reviewer: Danielle in Pennsylvania* I bake a lot and bought this for that purpose. The cooling effect others mentioned was present and far too much of a hurdle for me to get over. Nothing worse than biting into a piping hot brownie and in the middle it tastes...cold. The best way to describe it is to say this sweetener makes your tongue feel like you've been chewing mint. It doesn't go away after a while but remains. For example, I froze some cookies made with this and when I heated them up to eat they were still cool in the middle. I found this intolerable in my baked goods. The product is also very overpriced.
I gave it 2 stars because there is no bitter or obnoxiously sweet aftertaste like with other sweeteners and if you don't use it to bake perhaps the cooling effect isn't present.This review is specific to Swerve, All-Natural Sweetener
