you could try nagave necture it has a high glycimic index and will do the same thing as Splenda but not raise the sugar level as high or as quick

Do you have a variation on the sweetner used, the Splenda seems to run our Sugar levels up, it also did on my Father and Sister…would love to try this one with another Diabetic or complex sweetner.
