Looking for a sweetener that doesn't have the harmful effects of sugar? NuNaturals offers many great healthy sugar alternatives. None of which are not genetically modified. The products are all-natural.
Below are the products I got to try.
The liquid Stevias contain no artificial flavors; they only contain pure vanilla extract and real fruit ingredients.
NuStevia White Stevia packets are really convenient. And they contain zero calories. They are 100% natural and contain no aspartame, saccharin, sucralose, high-fructose corn syrup, sugar, or any artificial ingredients or colors. They are gluten free and contain no soy, milk, or preservatives. I used a packet where I would normally add a bit of sugar and it flavored so much sweeter than sugar.
I was also given a packet of a new NuNaturals sweetener alternative, LoSweet. The extract is from the fruit Lo han Guo. It has zero calories and zero sugars. It is actually 300x sweeter than sugar!
PreSweet Tagatose: This sweetener is gluten and lactose free. It is safe for diabetics. It has a prebiotic ingredient in it, which helps the good bacteria in the digestive system, which I thought was cool. You sure don't get that from ordinary sugar!
My sister and I both used it in baking. It worked excellently as a sugar substitute. My sister created this chocolate chip cookie recipe using it.

Recipe adapted from this one at Inspired Housewife.
NuStevia NoCarbs Blend: The consistency reminds me of regular white sugar. It is a non-bitter, zero calorie sweetener.
NuStevia Reb99: The consistency reminds me of powdered sugar. It also is a non-bitter, zero calorie sweetener.
NuGrains Oat Fiber: This can be added to recipes to give them some extra fiber. It gives products a nutty taste. One teaspoon (a serving) contains 3 grams of fiber.
