If for some reason you don’t like or can’t find xylitol, then you can try this: monk fruit sweetener. I was trying to find maple syrup replacement on the internet when I came across this one. Before trying it, I did some research and here is what I found:
Monk-fruit sweetener is available in health-food stores, grocery stores and online. I have encountered several versions of it:
- pure monk-fruit extract powdered, which – being very concentrated – seems difficult to dose
- liquid monk fruit sweetener – easier to dose because you can count the drops
- monk fruit sweetener blended with erythritol (a sugar-alcohol, similar to xylitol) with a sugar-like bulk; more information at https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/318392.php)

Before trying it: do your own research and make your own decisions. This is what I am doing, but this might not necessarily be best for you.
Good luck to All and keep your glucose levels down!
