Sucrose has been largely replaced in these low calorie products by a combination of polydextrose and sucralose (Splenda),
neither of which affect blood sugars. A small quantity of fructose (fruit sugar) has been added for taste enhancement.
These products are perfectly safe for most diabetic diets taken in reasonable quantities, but a diabetic with any
reason to doubt should consult his or her medical advisor.

Turn this applesauce into an awesome low carb breakfast-
Mix 3T applesauce with 2 T softened cream cheese. Split open 2 Joseph's low carb pitas along the outer edge and stuff with apple mixture. Dip pitas in a mixture of 1 egg, 1 T Splenda and 1/4 t vanilla. Fry in butter until golden and crispy. Serve with sugar free syrup. Makes fantastic stuffed french toast. :D
I love this with pork chops. Being a low-carber, I am always looking for ways to jazz up protein foods without any extra work. Just open up a jar of this apple sauce and you've got it made. The flavor is very apple-ey. Very good.
I love this stuff almost as much as the sweet chili sauce, which I wish to marry. I use it to make curried chicken salad -- mixed with some mayo, cooked chicken, toasted nuts (hazelnuts or macadamias or pecans) and whatever bits of fruit your plan will allow (one slice of pineapple cut into bits is very nice, or three or four quartered grapes) is delicious on some lightly dressed salad greens. I've also browned some boneless pork chops, sauteed some chopped shallots in the pan, deglazed the pan with chicken broth (scraping up all the brown bits -- do NOT use a non-stick pan for this), reduced the broth by half, stirred in a big spoonful each of Apricot Sauce and Dijon mustard, braised the chops in that until cooked through, reduced again, and added a bit of cream. Strong men cried with happiness.
This is very good and I keep it on hand. For roast pork, duck or chicken, I brush it on about 15 minutes before taking the roast out of the oven. I've also used it as a dipping sauce. It's good with a little hot mustard mixed in, for the roast or for dipping.
Whoa! Finally a really, really good BBQ sauce. I tell ya, I'd almost given up finding something low carb that didn't ruin the meal. Jok n Al is the best sauce I have ever tried!!!!! Low carb or not...it is really the best. It's kinda spicy and sorta sweet. It's nice and thick to boot! I would use this BBQ sauce whether I was dieting or not. It is far better than the Walden Farms, which only smells good. This Jok n Al just IS GOOD! Please take my word for it. I am very choosy and this sauce impressed me.
This is fantastic. I ordered it with my last order and actually used it today. I mixed this with a little of the apricot sauce and some liquid teriyaki sauce and spread over chicken then broiled. Has a little kick but it's subtle. Absolutely perfect! I'm ordering 3 more.
Most lo-carb barbecue sauces feel like they are lacking something...but this one is really, really good. I'm really big on barbecue and I order about 5 bottles at a time just to make sure I'm stocked up.
I'm a Kansas City kid, and I'm beyond picky about barbecue sauces. This product is wonderful. I thought that barbecue sauce, with all its sugars, was a thing of the past with my low-carb lifestyle. Not true. This sauce is tasty and satisfying.
What a product....Tried this with both as a marinade and added to mayo for a salad dressing. Just add mayo for both. Delish...I originally bought this to make a dip with cream cheese, but it is so versatile. Buy it...
This review is specific to Low Calorie Chili Pepper Sauce
Love this sauce. Used it with cold shrimp as a dip at a couple of cocktail parties, friends there placed their own order for it. Then used it on chicken hot wings, added some soy sauce to the chili pepper sauce and poured over the wings, WOW! Ordered 4 more bottles today!
What a great low-carb alternative to sweet chilli sauce which is loaded with carbs.
Just substitute it wherever you usually use sweet chilli sauce - thin it out, add some coriander(cilantro), mint, dash of fish sauce, soy sauce and olive oil and you've got yourself and fantastic thai salad dressing.
This is EXACTLY what I have been looking for! I make low carb chinese all the time and LOVE to add sweet chili sauce to my "rice"..but it had a TON of carbs. This is an EXCELLENT sub! I cant wait to use this on chicken, beef, pork and cauli rice! Def recommend!

Great stuff. I always missed being able to have cranberry sauce with pork, chicken, and turkey.
I tried this, after going "without" since the 80's, and my taste buds went nuts with the first bite.
I ordered some more for "backup" the next day.
Now I don't have to watch others enjoying it in front of me. I have my own and no one is allowed to touch it !.
If you are considering buying this cranberry sauce, think no more & just order it; it is truly delicious! This tastes just like the real carb-laden version. If this were served to you & you did not know that it was low carb, you would NEVER know the difference- it is that good. Enjoy some with your next chicken or turkey dinner.
I am a diabetic, and I love cranberry sauce with my turkey and chicken, but there are few cranberry products that are low carb. I decided to cook my own low-carb cranberry sauce, but sometimes I came up with fresh cranberries that had skins so tough I had to dump the whole batch. Jok & Al's sauce is smooth and sweet, and low carb. I have just reordered another couple of jars. The last order to Netrition came in fast and well packaged. As long as they keep up this quality of service, I will keep ordering.
This cranberry sauce is quite good. It tastes good. It does have skin and seeds in it. The texture is different, I dip meat and veggies in it and it's fine. I already bought more and I also bought the apple sauce to try.

It takes a little getting used to - but if you're a "no-sugar type", you will get used to it quickly and never use real ketchup again, (since real ketchup is loaded with sugar). I have never used real ketchup again after changing over to this product. Don't order more than 2 bottles at a time - if you store it for months, it will turn unusable.

This is a good substitute for ketchup - just ok though. My husband really liked it more than I did but I thought it had too much spice to it. I'm a wimp though so don't let that stop you from trying it if you like a little spicier flavor.
I recently received my order. This sauce is amazing! I used it to top off my stir fry. I purchased a bottle of the apricot, too. It is just as delicious. These sauces are very thick, and a little goes a long way. Thank you, Netrition, for offering these low-cal diet savers! I will be re-ordering very soon.

Very thick, slightly tart, and really good on just about everything ; hamburgers, chili. I mix it with mayonnaise, chopped onion and small amount of pickle relish to make a great Thousand Island dressing. This is wonderful for my type I diabetic husband and my type II diabetic self.
