View Full Version : Need some help

I have done a search but did not find what I was looking for....so I am asking you guys for help.

What is the name of that product that is used instead of sugar or even sweet n low?

I am thinking it starts with 'A'. Also, can I find it at Central Market?

Thanks for the help.

Either Aspartame or Acesulfame K? Don't know which you are refering to, if it's sweeteners you're talking about.

Yea, my bad. Its sugar substitute but not any of those that u mentioned. But it does not cause an insulin spike like others. I believe its a natural product.

Thanks anyway.

Are you referring to Splenda which is made from sugar?

ascorbic acid - although not truly a sweetner but used generously for taste by the food industry

Where can one buy Splenda? Is it liquid form?

You can purchase it at most supermarkets. Usually located beside products like Sweet 'n Low and Equal. I have not seen it in liquid form.

Stevia is what I was trying to remember. Didnt start with an A but it does have one at the end.....I must have dyslexia.

Any opinions on this product? Anyone using it?
