    A fine new option for a low calorie sweetner, July 15, 2012

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)

    PROS:
    Very nearly like sugar
    Works great in cold beverages
    Okay for hot beverages (see cons below)
    No ‘cooling effect’
    Worked reasonably in a baking application
    No synthesized, chemical ingredients

    CONS:
    Contains trace amounts of sugar and molasses
    “Natural” but not necessarily non-GMO
    Not exactly zero calories (greater than two servings likely greater than 5 calories)
    Very slightly bitter aftertaste in hot beverages
    Slight honey-like overtones added to the sweetness
    The ‘natural’ moniker is relative: it contains some refined sugar and is not necessarily from non-GMO sources

    NOTE: Please realize that when reviewing any food item, including sweeteners, I can only give my opinion. Everyone’s taste buds are different and everyone’s perception of what tastes good in a sweetener is different. I have done my best to describe this product, but in the end you will have to taste it yourself and see what you think.

    FULL REVIEW:
    Nectresse is the latest no calorie sweetener from McNeil Nutritionals. It is an admixture of Erythritol, sucrose, monk fruit (luo han guo) extract, and molasses. The combination adds another low calorie sweetener to the mix and generally successful, depending on the application.

    WHAT’S IN THE PACKAGE:
    Nectresse is supplied in small nearly 1/2 teaspoon, 2.4 g packets (for comparison there are 4.2 g of sugar per teaspoon). That said, 1/2 teaspoon of Nectress supplies the same sweetness as two teaspoons of sugar. The packets are thicker foil packets, not the paper packets such as sugar an other sweetners are often packaged in. This is likely due to the need to protect the Nectress from moisture in the environment, as it is likely more hygroscopic (moisture absorbing) than other sweeteners. The Nectress itself is slightly yellow in color but it has the same texture as sucrose, mimicking a very light, blonde sugar. It mixes easily in hot or cold beverages and handles very similarly to sugar for these kinds of applications.

    RAW TASTE:
    When tasted directly out of the packet, the Nectresse is almost as cleanly sweet as table sugar, but it has some slightly honey overtones. Overall, this is a very pleasant sweetness. There is no bitter after taste when tasted cold: if you try the directly out of the package taste test with most Stevia brands, the result is a shocking bitter after taste. Plain erythritol has a cleaner, sucrose sweetness but is plagued with a very pronounced and to some disturbing cool after sensation (kind of like you get with mint or menthol, without the mint or menthol taste).

    On the upside, the sweetness factor is really quite good, depending on the application the taste is nearly as good as sugar. When sweetening cold beverages (ice tea, lemonade) the Nectresse really shined. The sweetness level was robust and it was hard to distinguish from sugar. The honey-like overtones may not jibe with every application, but these were at least pleasant overtones as compared to other non-sugar sweeteners.

    Sadly, when used in hot beverages, such as coffee, there is a slightly perceptible, bitter aftertaste. This is similar to the aftertaste you might get from Stevia, but not nearly as pronounced. Unlike Stevia, the taste is simply bitter–there are no licorice after tones. The more sweetener used, the more the bitterness. If you like your coffee lightly sweet, you may not notice it. If you like your coffee on the more intensely sweeter side, it is noticeable. That said, the bitter taste is less pronounced in hot tea, possibly secondary to the acidity.

    Please note, that the bulk of the sweetness here is likely from the monk fruit extract. Monk fruit is about 150 times as sweet as sugar, so you would only need very tiny amounts of monk fruit extract for sweetness. The erythritol, sugar, and molasses are added to add bulk, texture, and consistency to the product, so that it more closely resembles and behaves like table sugar. They may also compliment or balance the taste of the product, but can’t account for the level of sweetness.

    (There is only 1/2 teaspoon of product per package: erythritol is only 70% as sweet as sugar–it would take more than 2 1/2 teaspoons of erythritol to equal the sweetness of 2 teaspoons of sugar. And quite obviously, even 1/2 teaspoon of sucrose couldn’t get you the equivalent of 2 teaspoons of itself. Molasses is not as sweet as sugar and has a distinctive taste, so there’s not enough molasses in the mix to account for the sweetness. )

    BAKING:
    On the FAQ section on Nectresse’s website, it was mentioned that you could bake with Nectresse. Ever interested in experimentation, I decided to give it a try. I used a simple sugar cookie recipe and baked three kinds of cookies sweetened with: 1) sugar; 2) Nectresse; and 3) pure erythritol. I commandeered my 9 and 12…

    This review is from: NECTRESSE Natural No Calorie Sweetener, 140 Serving Canister (Grocery)
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)
    While everyone can have their opinion, the scientific justification and logic in some of the arguments are without reason or merit.

    It is not monkfruit, it’s a sweetening product which has monkfruit. Comparing it to stevia the herb is not plausable. Apples to apples.

    150 times sweeter than sugar is not the same as 150% sweeter than sugar. 150% is 1.5 times sweeter than sugar. While this is a common mistake, like your vs you’re, this should not be a mistake when doing an analysis or making an argument.

    The total calories is unknown and not calculable. The listed 1 gm and <1grm when it’s itemized means it is non-zero. In fact 1 gram of sugars from Erythritol is 0.2 kcals so if there is 0.1 grams, that’s it’s only 2 one hundredths of a single calorie (2/100th). Calories is non-zero and less than 5 but any other attempt at calculating the calories without knowing the exact contribution between 0 < x < 1gm of each ingredient is guessing.

    Comparing a teaspoon of this to a teaspoon of sugar as an argument that it has significant calories makes no sense. A serving of this is 1/4 of a teaspoon. What’s the point of using super sweet items if you do arguments based on volume.

    The added ingredients are there for volume and texture. For the mass market, an eye dropper and instructions to attempt to get out 1 / 150th of a drop in my grandma’s tea isn’t a viable product model. Even getting out 1/4 of a teaspoon is rather hard. Ingredients are listed by weight, by law, they aren’t listing it by the % sweetness the amount adds to the total product. You are paying for a certain amount of ‘sweetness’, a.k.a. a ‘serving’. Would there be less issues if there were no fillers and you get 120 servings of sweetener but it comes in the size of a single sugar packet? Get out the micro scale and the razor blades.

    Is it natural? Let’s look:

    1. Erythrytol – created from fermented sugar. Is Vodka and whiskey natural?

    2. Sugar – even if it’s GM (genetically modified) beet sugar, it’s the ‘granulated white stuff’ 95% of American’s call table sugar. Most foods at the typical grocery store are GM. Even the farmer’s market. Who do you think they buy their seeds from? Monsanto.

    3. Monk fruit – Seems like there are no arguments on this being ‘natural’.

    4. Molasses – By-product of making table sugar, that white stuff people see on the tables and make cookies with.

    Calories will add up and increase your blood sugar? Only if you consume a lot…all at once. Last I knew, people didn’t sit down and eat 140 sugar packets at once. Even then, you are looking at less of an impact on your blood sugar than 1/4th of a candy bar. Half of those few calories is from Erythrytol, which according to Wikipedia does not have any affect on the blood sugar level.

    Pure Erythrytol is close to the same cost per ‘1 serving of sugar like sweetness’ as this. You just need a lot more of it.

    It’s a lot of nit-picking and there’s a lot more I could go over but people seem vocal over trivial things. Does it really matter if something has 1 calorie when the whole point is that people are consuming way too much sugar and fat in their diet. Why focus on getting ‘no-fat’ if the purpose is to cut calories and get to a reasonable diet. We as a country are too obsessed on going from extreme to extreme. I see people 300 pounds over-weight screaming at the barista about getting the non-fat milk over the 2% or the diet-coke to their 3 platter Long John Silver’s meal.

    Lastly as a sweetening product, I like it. It’s has a slight fruity taste. Cooking I have no idea but I like it in my morning coffee and tea. I use to use 1/2 spenda packet 1/2 sugar packet but I’ve replaced it with a pinch of this. I’m going to try it in my rib marinade and see how it works.

    I suggest anyone thinking about it, you can get free samples from the company, try it. You won’t die from it, look at a single slice of white bread and compare it.

    Unique sweetness makes Nectresse a winner, July 5, 2012

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)
    “Hello, my name is David, and I’m a sugar addict.” “Hello, David.” True, I love my sweets, but my sweets do not love me. Hence, I tend to rely on sugar substitues (perhaps a little too much) to stave off those sugar cravings. My go-to has always been stevia, in one form or another, whether liquid extract, powder, crystalized (Truvia), or organic ground, as I think stevia is an excellent sweetener. But, always willing to try something new, I was happy to indulge in Nectresse, a new natural sweetner from the makers of Splenda.

    The primary source of sweetener in Nectresse is monk fruit (aka luo han guo), which I have eaten as an additive in other foods, and have always found to be tasty. This was my first opportunity trying it as an actual sugar substitute, so I tried to utilize it in several different applications.

    First, on its own, Nectresse is great. I initially thought there was a slightly off aftertaste, but I realized it was hints of the monk fruit itself, and the flavor everntually grew on me. I then sprinkled Nectresse on various kinds of fruits, from watermelon and peaches to strawberries and cantaloupe, and it fared well on all of them, adding just the right touch of sweetness without overpowering the natural flavors of the fruits.

    I also added Nectresse to cold almond milk, as well as hot tea, and was very pleasantly surprised to see how well the granuals disolved in liquid, which tends to be problematic with stevia (mostly so with Truvia). And not a lot of Nectresse was necessary to sweeten the drinks (maybe half a packet), so a little goes a long way.

    I did not have the opportunity to bake with Nectresse, so I cannot comment on how well it does in baked goods, but based on my initial observations, I think it’s likely to perform well.

    Now, I would exercise some caution here, as there is sugar in Nectresse — though, less than 1g (which, in a 2.4g serving, could still be significant). The other ingredients are Erythritol and Molasses. So, if you are on a complete no sugar diet, you’d likely have to skip this sweetener. Still, there are 0 calories overall, with the Erythritol providing 2g of carbohydrates.

    Overall, I think Nectresse is a far better option than Splenda and Aspartame (especially considering their sketchy health and safety issues), but in my opinion, not quite as good as stevia. But, taste is highly subjective, so I think opinions are likely to be quite divided here. I will definitely continue to use Nectresse, as it’s a great form of monk fruit extract, but it won’t be the first product I reach for when attempting to quell my sweet tooth.
