Hi Dear Friends ,
When we started this diabet thing , we spent sometime for finding out the best sweetener.First we tried Stevya which was told 100% natural but we did not like the taste and much more than this we had a strong headacke (and a strong acke in my ears) as soon as we had Stevia.Then we gave up using Stevia and tried Splenda.Splenda is much better than Stevia however still a very light headacke after having a dessert with Splenda.At that time I also bought a packet of Fructose with the glysemic endex 19 ( really very low comparing other many things) and I used it several times for the baking especially and the taste was almost same as normal sugar.I know fructose comes from the fruits and it's natural , but upto now I have not read yet that fructose is safe to use.
Additionally we have diabetic chocolates with fructose here and we prefer to consume those chocolets but in a very small amounts of course (2-3 squares maybe).
How you think about fructose or what sweeteners you prefer to use?
So many thanks and greeteings from a rainy Istanbul morning…
