A few months ago when I was eating a very low sugar diet, I found out about a sweetener called Just Like Sugar. I've often been a skeptic of products and sweeteners that sound too good to be true like this one - but because one of my favourite holistic nutritionists regularly uses and raves about the benefits of it, I decided to give it a try. Just Like Sugar is made up mostly of chicory root and contains no calories, no sugar, no fat, and no sodium. Check out the big list of other major benefits below.
I've started experimenting with recipes using Just Like Sugar and Just Like Brown Sugar (I ordered off the Canadian site but there's an american one too - and I might add that I've recieved NO compensation and NO samples for this "review"). While the conversion chart on the package says differently, I think it's best to use an equal amount where you would use other dry sugars.
I'm curious to know if you've tried this sugar? Or anything similar? Are you a fan?
