A question the company won't answer

Posted by Reviewer1515359 on Feb 24, 2009

Purchased at iHerb

The labeling on this product states that it contains a "propriatory blend" of Levulose (read: fructose) and Lo Han. When I wrote them asking what the percentage of Lo Han was, I recieved no response. It is indeed, propriatory. Since it is listed after the Levulose, it contains less than the other fructose but who knows how much. The serving size is 1 gram, an unlikely serving for most people. It is likely to cake. On the positive side, it has a pleasent taste, and is not bitter...fructose after all is still sugar.

Fraudulent

Be warned: The main ingredient in this product is Fructose. (Levulose - as listed on ingredients) is just a fancy name for fructose. Fructose is cheap and easy to purchase. But not very good for you. Lo Han is something quite different - low G.I. , an antioxidant, immune enhancing, almost zero calories. Fructose is pure badness in comparison. I don't know how a health food company could sell such stuff with a good conscience. I will never, ever again purchase anything from Trimedica again. This - for people who have to follow a low GI, low calorie or low carbohydrate diet - is actually a pretty wicked thing to do. A label that loudly shouts about Lo Han. A blurb that lists all the virtues of Lo Han. And then the small print: Proprietary blend of Levulose and Lo Han. (As the levulose is listed first there is the most of it) - and still they try to hide the fact it is fructose by calling it a fancy name ie Levulose. Shame on Trimedica. I have been using this product for a while in good faith and trust only to learn it is actually pretty fraudulent.

This sugar is not sweet, have to use a lot to get a little sweet taste and it hardens up quickly in the container so I have to dig it out, crumble it with a knife. I would not purchase this product again.

Worst "sweetener" I've tried

I really wanted to like this but it wasn't sweet at all no matter how much you add! Big waste of 4 bucks. If you are looking for a natural sweetener I recommend nunaturals stevia.

Great tasting product. Has no metallic tatse nor does it change th foods tast. E bit pricey but worth because of the great "sweet" taste. Does not to to well in baking. Melts slower in cold drinks.
