What do Y'all use as a sweetener? I have tried EQUAL and something in a pink package but, aspartame and saccharin both trigger my migraines. I use honey in my Coffee and still use raw sugar to cook with. Is there something better out there?

Hi there Sparky's mom I use either splenda or honey to sweeten my coffee or tea .I use very little sugar when I cook ,you can use Splenda granulated sweetener as a sugar substitute in cooking or baking.
I have read about the aspartame and its side effects ,it's not good.
Splenda is a no calorie sweetener,it contains no sugar.Splenda packets are great for sweetening beverages and sprinkling on cereal and on fresh fruit.

I also use the Stevia. It is a little costly, but it sure does have less of an aftertaste than any I have used except for one called Whey Low. Whey Low has a good web site. I think I reviewed their product in the Product Review Section. Chek there for it if you want to know more. I cook with the Whey Low.

I do use Stevia right now. It doesn't take much. It is expensive for me might not be for other people.
