    A fine, but expensive, alternative sweetener without any bitter aftertaste, January 23, 2012

    Jojoleb “jojoleb” (NJ) –

    This review is from: Swerve Sweetener, 16oz [1lb] (Misc.)

    PROS:
    One of the best and most pleasant tasting sugar substitutes
    No bitter aftertaste
    Similar consistency to sugar

    CONS:
    Expensive compared to sugar and other sugar substitutes
    Ounce for ounce, not as sweet as sugar
    Might not be a perfect substitute for sugar in all baking applications
    Cools down your hot beverages when it goes into solution/Cool aftertaste

    Swerve sweetener is a good, zero calorie substitute for sugar. It is a reasonable alternative to sugar for use in coffee, tea, and even for some baking purposes.

    Swerve’s main ingredient is erythritol but also has a proprietary blend of ‘oligosaccharides and natural flavors.’ Erythritol is a sugar alcohol (or polyol) very similar to xylitol, another polyol that is often used to sweeten sugarless gum and other candies. The company makes a big deal out of the fact that erythritol can occur naturally in some fruits and fermented foods, mass production of erythritol apparently involves the fermentation of natural sugars found in corn.

    Interestingly, I found that although erythritol is touted as a ‘zero calorie’ sweetener, it actually has 0.2 calories per gram. This isn’t quite zero, but is far less than the 3.8 calories per gram found in regular table sugar.

    Like the sugar alcohols xylitol and inulin, erythritol has a sweet flavor that closely resembles table sugar (sucrose), without the bitter aftertaste found in other sugar substitutes such as saccharin, sucralose (Splenda), and aspartame (NutraSweet). Unlike xylitol and inulin, however, erythritol is more digestible/absorbable, and hence does not cause as much GI upset/bloating. Sadly, erythritol is only 70% as sweet as table sugar, so you need about twice as much product to get the same level of sweetness. This is why erythritol is often used as a vehicle to bulk up other sweeteners, such as Stevia.

    As to baking, erythritol is not a perfect substitute for sucrose. It has different hygroscopic (moisture absorbing) properties than sugar and apparently tends to crystallize more than regular sugar, depending on the application.

    True to its roots, Swerve has a pleasant, sweet flavor that is very reminiscent of sugar. In spite of the hype on their website that Swerve–unlike other erythritol formulations from other companies–can replace sugar on a 1:1 basis, I found that Swerve was generally less sweet than sugar. This did, however, depend on the application.

    In a side-by-side test, at room temperature, Swerve compared fairly to table sugar. It was a little less sweet, but not by much. Oddly, it seemed to initially tickle the sweet receptors on my tongue on first taste, but the sweetness quickly died down. Sugar’s sweet taste seemed to linger longer. Still, Swerve was devoid of any bitter aftertaste found in common artificial sweeteners and in Stevia. However, I found that when I put Swerve in hot coffee, it took almost two teaspoons of the stuff to equal the sweetness of one teaspoon sugar. Interestingly, when used to make brownies, I used 30% more Swerve than I would use sugar for the recipe and when they were done the brownies were sweeter than usual. I wonder if temperature affects the sweet taste of the erythritol. I can’t seem to find any evidence for this, but it seems true for my taste buds.

    Some people have commented on experiencing a ‘cool’ after sensation on the mouth and tongue after tasting erythritol. This is best described as the kind of cool sensation you get after tasting mint, but without the minty taste. I did experience this a little with Swerve, but it wasn’t bothersome or overwhelming. Interestingly, erythritol does absorb heat when it goes into solution, so it will make your coffee a tiny bit cooler after mixing it in.

    NOTE 1/31/2012: I used powdered erythritol to make a butter cream frosting. The consistency wasn’t as thick and robust as it is with sugar, but it was fine. However, the cooling effect was wild here. Not necessarily unpleasant, but a little strange. Interestingly, by adding cocoa powder to the mix, the cooling effect was blunted a bit. I will have to experiment with combinations of this sweetener with other ingredients to see if the cooling effect can be tamed or blunted.

    Another downside of erythritol is its price. At current market rates 16 ounces (2 cups) costs twice as much as 16 ounces of boxed Domino sugar on Amazon. In reality, if you buy a 5 pound bag of sugar at your local supermarket you can probably cut that down to about a dollar a pound, which makes Swerve about 14 times the price of table sugar at current rates. Pretty expensive.

    On the whole this is one of the better sugar substitutes out there. It is a nice compromise between the strange aftertastes of artificial sweeteners and the GI side effects of other sugar alcohols. Although not quite as sweet as sucrose,…

    Best sweetener I’ve ever used. Outside of the real thing., August 25, 2013

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    As a diabetic, I can vouch for two things. One, it bakes just like sugar, and my NY cheesecake was perfect. I’ve tested my glucose repeatedly since switching to Swerve, and it’s remained steady and low and I am ecstatic! I can’t wait to try the confectioners version in my non-baked goods. Sugar Free has never tasted this good.

    OK Sweetener but – NOT the Price. Suggest: Simpler packaging., March 3, 2012

    This review is from: Swerve Sweetener, 16oz [1lb] (Misc.)
    A friend recommended this natural sweetener. I don’t taste an aftertaste in certain drinks. I don’t think this is as sweet as natural sugar (and I don’t have much of a sweet tooth).

    Also, I had to be careful opening packets, due to the product “caking” or hardening slightly inside the pack. I almost lost half the pack when this initially happened; and at the price I paid for it, I was not happy.

    The main issue I have with Swerve is the price. It’s very expensive, compared to other sweeteners! I think that the fancy packaging is nice but I wish they would have chosen simpler, more economical packaging to make the cost more consumer-friendly. I actually limit how much I use because of the price. Something I never have to do with other sugar substitutes.

    If the price were lower, I would have bought more packages and tried the confectioner’s version, too. I would also buy it often -to bake with, without breaking the bank. If you are the maker of this product, please consider this review. Simpler packaging is better; then, one day it might appear in groceries and supermarkets everywhere.

    Update: I can’t bring myself to buy more of it, due to the high cost of in comparison with other natural sweeteners that are equally satisfying. I’m going to stick with erythritol/stevia for now.
