No one said giving up sugar is easy. Our test kitchen compared the basic sweeteners that appear in our bakery recipes to find out what substitute is really one-for-one on taste.

Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener

Anthony’s Erythritol and Monk Fruit Sweetener

Health Garden Allulose Sweetener

Monk Fruit Sweeteners

* Great for ketogenic, diabetic, candida, paleo, vegan, low-carb, low-sugar, non-GMO, and all-natural diets

* Recommended white sugar substitute for baking and cooking

* Products generally have monk fruit extract and erythritol

* Available varieties: baking, classic, golden and powdered

Coffee tasting notes:

No bitterness or tang. Definitely sweet after the two teaspoons but a little less sweet than sugar at that amount (adding half of a teaspoon more the desired sweetness was achieved). Nice mouth feel, really. This Monk Fruit combo sweetener coats your tongue (almost in a buttery way) unlike others that linger at the back of the throat and can turn to a bitter aftertaste. Best part: richest flavor with Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
