THERE'S A BETTER WAY

It’s hard to let go of sugar, even when you know it’s bad for you. People still want to enjoy their favorite foods and indulge in desserts. Desserts are connected holidays, celebrations, moments with friends and family, they’re almost impossible to avoid.

Now you can have your cake and eat it too. Life can be sweet without sugar thanks to all-natural sugar replacements.

What makes a good sugar replacement? It’s best if it actually tastes like sugar and can be used like sugar. It’s hard when you make a dessert you love and it doesn’t quite taste the same or you have to do complicated conversions.

Maybe you’ve tried the following:

  • Stevia - comes from a natural source (a plant), but is known to have a bitter aftertaste
  • Erythritol - only 50-60% as sweet as sugar
  • Maltitol - not as sweet as sugar and only 25% less calories
  • Pure monk fruit extract - tastes like sugar, but is up to 300 times sweeter than sugar
  • Sucralose - taste like sugar, but is an artificial sweetener

“”

Superior product that I love having in my kitchen! There’s no artificial aftertaste, products work well in baking and in cold or hot drinks. I like the integrity of the Lankato company and their customer support. A+++ in my book!

“”

I was skeptical, and hoping that it wasn’t going to taste like the regular sugar replacement--it didn’t! It was very much like brown sugar and I was pleasantly surprised. Even my husband thought it was really brown sugar. Absolutely love it!

“”

This product is on my list of staples that I never want to run out of. I make a toffee with it that is sugar free and delicious! Also, because it’s a 1:1 substitute for sugar, it’s easy to replace sugar in any recipe that calls for sugar. I LOVE this product!

“”

I am so happy to have found this substitute for brown sugar. Because brown sugar is high in calories, Lakanto Golden fits any recipe that requires brown sugar and has no after taste. It's delicious and I recommend it to anyone who is trying to control how much sugar they are taking in.
