About This Brand

Brown Sugar substitute

Posted   by Eliab from Phoenix, Arizona

Looked around everywhere for a keto brown sugar substitute and decided to go for this one. It is well worth it from the price point to the flavor of the golden monkfruit. The bag would zip so I had to put it in my own ziploc bag and store it.

Not for me

Posted   by Laura from BINGEN, Washington

I think sugar replacers just aren't for me. Better off consuming small amounts of honey or maple syrup. This tastes... Like nothing? But then somehow registers as sweet. But not sugar sweet. There's an aftertaste. But worst if all it makes my head feel so strange- sort of pressure and ringing. Apparently erythritol can cause headaches. I will never purchase this again.

When starting out on my keto journey I looked for a sweetener that closely resembled the organic cane sugar I had been drinking in my coffee for so many years. I learned Im allergic to Stevia so that was out. I tried a small bag of the "Lakanto Classic" first but it had an aftertaste, this golden version is spot on! I always buy it in 3 lb bulk because I use it for not only my coffee but in baking and sauces. Love this stuff!
