How Sweet It Is……
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!
When 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!
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!
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.

I have to say that Sugar 2.0’s customer service is amazing. When I chatted with “Sugar 2.0” on Facebook little did I know that I was talking to the genius that created this revolutionary product. The packaging is so eye catching, and the entirety of the product is outstanding! The one thing that I am really waiting for is to see if the future holds BROWN SUGAR 2.0, but I don’t know if I could be in love more than I already am! Thank you Mr. Nguyen for changing the future of sweets, and our health!
