grains or tablet sweeteners?

splenda

but it's still rank.


and a teensy bit carciogenic.
#3
do you want a more healthy alternative or a chemical alternative or a low gi option?

I'd say honey but it wouldnt be helpful for diabetics.

just not adding sugar works...

aspartame is deadly.

The reason I'm asking is because I'm most probably will be confirmed diabetic this week and tea without sugar is getting boring.

I'm a recently diagnosed diabetic and most sugar replacements taste terrible. The only thing I like in tea is Candarel tablets. Put them in before you put the water in. Powdered sugar replacements still taste awfull. Hope this helps. If you are unfortunately a diabetic and need some advice then send me a pvt message and I will try try to help.

i find the best sweetners are the cheap ones from tesco they are in a tube think they are called slimmers and are about 99p we both used to have sugar in tea but we are used to these now

other sweetners dont taste sweet enough
#10
sucrolose is supposed to taste the best which is what splenda is. you can also buy granulated fructose, which is real sugar but lower gi and also naturally sweeter so you don't use as much. so stuff i can manage with artificial sweetner but like on my cereals, the fructose is the only thing i can stand, and that really is so good you shouldn't be able to tell the difference.

Wait and see what the doctor says to you.. you'll probably have to test your blood sugars regularly and you'll be able to see for yourself what foods give you a sugar peak.

I have saccharin in my tea. Can't drink it with sugar any more as sugar tastes rank by comparison :lol:
#19
Gave up alcohol...Realised the amount of tea I was now drinking instead, the sugar was gonna make me either diabetic or ill. Did some testing.
For me Sugar Alternatives are exactly that...an alternative. So I tried 'Agave Nectar'

Hmmm - I wouldn't bonk either of 'em!

My OH is type 1 diabetic and is insulin dependent so although he obviously can't have a high sugar diet there is a bit more leeway than if you're type 2 and diet controlled, for example. What he sometimes does is have half a spoonful of 'real' sugar and then 2 spoons of sweetener. xx

Try agave nectar it is a liquid organic sweetner, made from the agave plant and is supposedly diabetic friendly. Sold in tesco's sainsbury's.
