My mom is diabetic (non insulin dependent), and she swears by Splenda. She takes 2 different meds (one of them is Januvia) and her blood glucose is always right around 100. From a personal, non-diabetic POV, I think Splenda tastes great. BTW-my mom has been an nurse for over 40 years, so she does have some knowledge on the subject. LOL-now if she could just get a clue about my fibro...
Anyway, I think Splenda is your best choice as an everyday sugar substitute (and you can bake with it, too). Just my opinion.
Ok, I find that sugar and sugar substitutes are addictive and make me feel horrible. That being said, I just can't seem to stay away from them. I try really hard to stay away from sugar but I need my things sweetened so I go for the splenda (I tolerate that best). I have tried the stevia and I just can't get used to the taste and it is expensive. I haven't tried the Xylitol, I didn't know that it was available but I will be looking into it.
I have often thought about trying hypmotism (sp), erasing my need for sweets but I just can't imagine letting someone in to my mind. Has anyone tried this? I just wish I could stop liking the taste of sweets, my life would be a bit easier!

Real sugar, raw sugar and honey (when I can control it). I base it on the opinion that the real thing must be better than anything man could create. But that is just my opinion. I also use butter instead of margerine.
