Waste of money and very messy - not what I expected
April 12, 2019
Firstly this is made in China. I cannot take off a star for that since it is written on the bag (though tiny and blurry in their product photo). I assumed Non-GMO and organic meant it was not from China, but that is not the case. My error on that one.
I will give it a low rating due to it having virtually zero sweetness unlike two other Erythritols I have tried. It does not taste bad (I actually tried the powder straight on my tongue to see if it had any flavor at all) and it had a very slight sweetness when eaten pure). I put two heaping teaspoons in coffee and barely noticed it so I almost question whether this is pure Erythritol, though perhaps it is, but a different type (I am not an expert on what makes some sweeter than others - except for the monk fruit that some of them have).
As far as the "messy" comment... There was powder all over the outside of the box, though the bag was not torn and there was no loose powder in the box so it must have come from the factory that way. The top of the bag is difficult to tear off to access the seal. In trying to tear the top off, powder puffed out. I then pinched the top VERY carefully and continued and it happened again (twice). I ended up with it all over my black shirt. Hopefully I do not get pulled over on my way home from work! (yeah, it looks like I was on an all night coke binge). Next time, I think I will stick to a granular one and go back to a brand that I have used before.
In case you are wondering why I switched brands and why I got powdered sugar, I wanted something that will dissolve better in cold and I found that one of the other brands I previously used (So Nourished) gave me a slight headache and contains silicon dioxide.
