How Sweet It Is – Sugar 2.0 Review

How Sweet It Is……

Sugar 2.0

 

I am so excited to be writing this review today. For those of you who read my review on the Lemon Drop Cookie Shop last week I’m sure you have been anxiously awaiting my review on the sugar I mentioned. (If you didn’t already look it up 😉 ) I am so excited about this new product that I will do my best to keep my post to an acceptable length without it turning into a long, drawn out piece. But once you try this, you will understand why I could just go on, and on, about it!

 

sugar2.0When I posted a brief hint about this sugar in my last review I mistakenly called it a sugar substitute. It isn’t a substitute it is a sugar improvement! It is still sugar, but 50% less of it! Instead of 15 calories per teaspoon it is 10 calories per teaspoon and here is the best part, the part that sold me hook, line, and sinker. The part that called to my inner foodie, health nut, and mom….. it has prebiotic fiber, and probiotics! I stopped using real sugar because of the horrible effects that it can have on a person’s body, and now I’m back! Nothing synthetic, plus added health benefits! Fiber to help keep the carbs in check, probiotics to keep a happy tummy, and less calories. I know, still looking for those unicorns to pop out any minute!

Coffee love…..

 

The Sugar 2.0 website explains the birth, and reasoning, behind this amazing product as this,

SUGAR 2.0 was born long before the lab. It started with one father’s desire to lower his kids’ sugar intake — with a solution they’d actually love. Fortunately, this dad was also a food product developer. After months of trials (with his kids as official taste testers) and nearly two years to perfect, he found the ideal combination: a non-gmo REAL cane sugar product with half the sugar, a third less calories and the same taste and texture as pure sugar.

Finally, something got his kids’ seal of approval!

His breakthrough, SUGAR 2.0, is a blend of sugar and FiberSucré, proprietary blend of natural, non-gmo-soluble prebiotic dietary fiber that blends perfectly with real sugar for a great taste and mouth feel. FiberSucré not only cuts sugar content in half, but enhances its nutritional value with fiber.

SUGAR 2.0 contains no artificial ingredients or high-intensity sweeteners, so it doesn’t have the bitterness and chemical aftertaste of synthetic sweeteners. It can even be used in recipes exactly like regular sugar.

Dad had just one word for it…EUREKA!

Can you say… caaaareamy! Still loving the fiber and probiotics!

 

I have tried Sugar 2.0 with probiotics in just about everything! When I first used it in my coffee it didn’t taste sweet enough, I usually use Stevia or Truvia, so I doubled the amount. As the Sugar 2.0 dissolved it became overly sweet, so no need to go overboard on this mildly sweet product. This was totally my fault as the products claim is that it is equal 1:1 when trading it for regular sugar, I didn’t believe it. 😉 I made my hubby’s favorite rice pudding using it and it came out creamier than ever, it wasn’t a hit and miss, with the possibility of dryness if it wasn’t cooked just right, it was perfect. I used the exact same amount I would have if I would have been using old school sugar. I decided to make the kids favorite cookies using Sugar 2.0 to see if they would notice the difference. THEY DIDN’T! While the calories are a tad higher than the original recipe, the grams of sugar stayed the same, but the protein, and fiber, DOUBLED! Plus, knowing that the probiotics are in there makes me feel so great about the kids eating them.

  1. Love the recipe, Angie! A wonderful review of the product. Though, I am a bit skeptical about it. First, it is still a sugar that brakes down to glucose and fructose in the body. Second, the price. Third, there are better, in my opinion, sources of probiotics, fermented veggies, kefir, yogurt, for example.

    1. You are right, it is still sugar, but 50% less, and thanks to the fiber it helps to slow down the absorption of sugar into the body. Compared to eating regular sugar I didn’t find that I got that nagging need for more due to there not being a spike in blood sugar. As for the probiotics, I agree, getting them from fermented products is a great way, but you have to remember that here in the states unless you brought your littles up with fermented foods from babies, they aren’t going to touch it, so you do what you can. 🙂 My husband and I also take probiotics because a lot of the fermented foods just aren’t a part of our diet no matter how healthy we know that they are. Sometimes you have to do a little give and take. SO! If a person is going to eat sugar, this is the way to go. 🙂 And while I can see where you might feel the price is a bit steep good products are generally pricier than junk. And again, if you aren’t using a ton of sugar, a little bit will go a long way. 🙂 When it comes to kids, sometimes you just have to make compromises. 😉

      1. I totally understand about fermented foods. While living in the US I didn’t see often people consuming them.
        In Ukraine, it’s a must, that comes from old traditions. Ukrainians follow DIY fermentation at home, and kids are used to this kind of food from early age.
        As to come back to sugar, I can only say, your kids are blessed to have such mother that takes care about their nutrition.
        I often see moms feeding their children with tons of sugary foods(

      2. I honestly wish we consumed more fermented foods, I know that other countries are healthier for it. I love kefir and kombucha, but am a little nervous to try making it. Can’t do sauerkraut or anything like that… not yet. I appreciate your kind words. 🙂 Sugar is a big deal in this country, just like fast foods. 😦 I have my little sweetums almost totally weaned off of both. Just cause mommas on board doesn’t mean everyone agrees lol
