As I have mentioned in the “Xylitol” post, stevia has an aftertaste that not everyone can tolerate. However, in some applications, combined with other sweeteners, you can’t taste it at all. Such are the Krisda stevia chocolate chips sweetened with erythritol and stevia.
There is a lot of information on the internet regarding both erythritol and stevia. Please check them out. Pages like http://www.sugar-and-sweetener-guide.com and http://www.healthline.com/health/diabetes/erythritol-diabetes are a good place to start.
You can use these chocolate chips just like any other brand you would use and do so nearly guilt-free. I am saying “nearly” because even though they have no added sugar, these chips – and the cookies or other deserts you may create with them – are not calorie-free. Yes, they help to satisfy your sweet-tooth while managing your blood-glucose, but moderate consumption is [always] the way to go. Ramping up your exercise regimen also helps!
Speaking of deserts involving chocolate chips, one of my favorites is a recipe I found on Genius Kitchen website (www.geniuskitchen.com/recipe/blender-chocolate-mousse-531172). I used the stevia chocolate chips for this chocolate mousse. It is a fantastic recipe. Thank you Genius Kitchen!
Remember: this is my way of coping with the limitations imposed by my diabetes. You – my readers (if any) – have to do your own research and make your own decisions. Good luck to all and keep your glucose levels down!
