I AM OFTEN ASKED ABOUT SUGAR AND LOW CALORIE SWEETENERS – so wanted to say that the ISA have really good and well researched advice on the topic
There are a range of low calorie sweeteners some in tablet form some in sachets and others in granular form
Some low calorie sweeteners can be used in cooking while others taste bitter due to the heat of cooking
There is a trend now for the natural sweetener derived from the Stevia plant and it is found in all sorts of foods and also beverages
I have a a Stevia plant in my kitchen and it is lovely to use in soft drinks or just nibble as it gives an intense sweet taste
It was from the local gardening centre and only £3.99
They make good presents for people with a sweet tooth!
