1. Stevia

Stevia is a natural sweetener derived from the leaves of the Stevia rebaudiana plant, which are indigenous to Paraguay in South America.

Is stevia healthier than Splenda? Not only is it healthier than artificial sweeteners like Splenda, it's also a popular choice for those on a keto diet. This is due to its high nutritional profile and ability to lower blood sugar levels.

Moreover, our findings show that stevia is infinitely sweeter than sugar, so a little goes a long way. Our GOOD GOOD stevia vanilla drops are a perfect example.

They offer a convenient way to sweeten beverages like keto-friendly egg nog and foods minus the carbs.

2. Erythritol

Erythritol is a sugar alcohol made from fructose that tastes almost like refined sugar but contains almost no calories with a minimal impact on insulin levels.

It's naturally found in some fruits and fermented foods. Erythritol is an excellent choice for baking and can be combined with other flavors to enhance your recipe.

This is certainly the case for our Sweet Like Sugar sweetener. When we tried this product, we discovered that it's extremely versatile and can be used in a range of baked goods - from keto muffins to low-carb brownies

3. Sucralose

Sucralose is an artificial sweetener that isn't metabolized by the body, making it keto-friendly. It's much sweeter than processed sugar, so we recommend using it in small amounts.

However, our findings show that it's important to choose pure sucralose products without bulking agents that can add carbs.

4. Xylitol

Xylitol is another sugar alcohol with a sweetness similar to regular sugar but with fewer calories and a lower impact on blood sugar.

It's beneficial for dental health but should be used in moderation due to its potential laxative effect. Keep in mind that xylitol is toxic to dogs, so pet owners should use it cautiously.

5. Monk Fruit

Monk fruit sweetener is made from the extract of the monk fruit and is another excellent sugar substitute for keto dieters. It contains zero carbs and doesn't spike insulin levels.

Our research indicates that monk fruit sweetener has a unique, sweet taste and is often mixed with other low-carb sweeteners, like erythritol or yacon syrup with lesser sweetness levels, to reduce its intensity.

6. Yacon Syrup

Yacon syrup is derived from the root of the yacon plant, which is native to South America. It's high in fructooligosaccharides, which act as soluble fibers to feed the good bacteria in the intestine.

While yacon syrup contains some natural sugars, its rich fiber content significantly lowers its net carb count, making it suitable for a keto diet in small quantities.

At GOOD GOOD, transitioning to a low-carb lifestyle doesn't mean you have to abandon sweetness. With these natural and artificial sweeteners, you can enjoy delicious flavors without compromising your wellness goals.

Which Sweeteners Taste Best?

Our vanilla stevia drops and Sweet Like Sugar Granulated sweetener are top picks for those seeking natural, low-carb sweeteners minus the bitter aftertaste often associated with alternatives.

Stevia provides a smooth, sweet taste that's perfect for coffee, tea, and desserts. Erythritol, one of the main ingredients in our Sweet Like Sugar product, is another favorite for its sugar-like flavor, making it ideal for baking and cooking.

Choose GOOD GOOD for a delightful, culinary experience that complements your lifestyle.

How Much Sweetener Should You Use?

The amount of sweetener you should use varies depending on the type and your personal preferences.

At GOOD GOOD, we recommend starting with small amounts and adjusting according to taste, as our sugar substitutes are designed to cater to varying sweetness levels.

For instance, stevia is significantly sweeter than sugar, so you'll need less of it. As per our expertise, a good rule of thumb is to use one teaspoon of our liquid stevia drops for every cup of processed sugar you're replacing.

Always start with less, test it, and then add more if needed, ensuring you achieve the perfect combination without overdoing it.
