I am new and have never posted before. I am changing my eating habits to a low-fat, low-sugar diet. I have tried sugar substitutes and like some of them, especially Splenda. However, my husband and 2 children (6 & 4) generally don't care for it and I end up wasting a lot.
I found a new sugar substitute called whey low. I have liked it so far. I was wondering if anyone else has tried it. I think it has 1/4 of calories of sugar and supposed to have 75% to 80% less insulin response.
The one drawback is it is expensive compared to sugar. I would like to use it for everything, but will probably limit it due to the price.
It is like Splenda as far as replacing sugar in recipes. I have only baked once with it so far. I made a low-fat fudge pudding cake using all whey low instead if sugar. It turned out very good!
I also use it in my oatmeal because they also make it a brown sugar substitute form and also powdered sugar--which I have not tried yet.
I see that there is no advertising allowed. Does this mean that I should not be saying this? I am in no way connected with them. I just am excited about this and hope someone has tried it; but I really wondered if anyone else has mentioned it. It could help those with insulin resistance and also those like myself who are trying to cut calories and limit sugar.
Again, I wish it was cheaper, but if it helps me to lose weight than I guess it would be worth it later.
I'm going to keep trying it; I have not used it for long so this is only a first impression. I'm going to try it in a pumpkin pie recipe next.
I hope this is helpful and maybe some of you who have used this can give me more ideas.
P.S. my username is Jumper because I recently started rebounding ( mini-trampoline) for my exercise.
