It seems like sugar is in just about everything these days! Lately, I have been trying to cut back on adding extra sugar to the beverages I drink. It is hard! As someone who drinks several cups of coffee and tea each day, I know I’m consuming too much sugar.
This week I tried something new as part of the Sweetness To Go Challenge and swapped out my usual sugar with the three new Nevella To Go Liquid Sweeteners: Monk Fruit, Stevia and Sucralose.
- Monk fruit is a fruit from Asia that has been used for nearly 800 years by locals as an all natural sweetener. The extract is made through a natural extraction process. It is roughly 200 times sweeter than cane sugar and provides calorie-free sweetness.
- Stevia is a South American herb used as a natural sweetener for centuries. The leaves of the Stevia rebaudiana plant have a refreshing taste, zero calories and zero carbohydrates. The extract used for sweetener products is 200-300 times sweeter than sugar.
- Sucralose is made using a process that starts with sugar and converts it to a zero calorie and zero carbohydrate sweetener that is almost 600 times sweeter than sugar.
Each one has a varying degree of sweetness with Sucralose To Go being the sweetest followed by Stevia To Go and then Monk Fruit To Go. I can definitely tell the difference in sweetness when I am using the different products.
One of the main reasons I am excited to be using Nevella To Go is because we do tend to eat out at least once a week. I always order unsweetened iced tea and then add my own one or two packets of sugar (I like it sweet but not sickly sweet). The problem with this is that I’m still adding too much sugar without getting the sweet taste since sugar crystals do not dissolve in cold iced tea very well!
Now, since Nevella To Go is liquid, it stirs right in to whatever I’m drinking quickly and easily. It comes in a small bottle that I can toss into my purse and bring with me — Super convenient! Just one squirt of Nevella To Go is equal to a teaspoon of regular sugar. And yes, it tastes delicious! My favorite is the Monk Fruit. It is just enough sweetness to let me know it’s there without being too much. It has no aftertaste and I’ve used it with tasty results in everything from hot tea, iced tea, coffee and even a breakfast smoothie!
As a mom, it can be tough to remember to take care of myself sometimes. The easier it is to make a change, the more likely I’ll be able to stick with it. Having the convenience of taking along a guilt-free sweetener like Nevella To Go sure makes this one change I believe will stay with me!
