 Being a Diabetic who cannot have sugar and hates artificial sweeteners, I was excited to get Dolcedi Low Glycemic Sweetener From Apples by Rigoni di Asiago.  The first time I tried it I just put a dot of Dolcedi on my fingertip to taste it just as it is.  I was very happy with it right away.  A nice light sweet flavor with no aftertaste.

 I then used it in my morning coffee and was impressed with the taste and natural sweetness.  I really like that there is no bitterness or aftertaste like artificial sweeteners have. I also like that I do not need to use very much in the beverages I want to sweeten a little.

 I used Dolcedi in my holiday eggnog and was very pleased with the results.  No one even noticed that I replaced sugar with Dolcedi.  That is really saying something because my family can always tell when I use a sugar substitute. I kept that secret to myself and smiled.

 I think Dolcedi low glycemic sweetener from apples is a fabulous natural organic substitute for sugar. I recommend that you set it out for your guests during the holidays and use it at home and in the office everyday!  This would make a nice stocking stuffer for anyone who sweetens their beverages.  I recommend it.
