Just Like Sugar Brown (Just Like Sugar) - Netrition

Any thoughts on this (I see that they just started carrying it!)? Was amazed at the fiber count....though that seems to be a fairly large serving!

Happy Holidays!

The fiber count is correct. It is assumed that Just Like Sugar Brown will be used for baking purposes so the manufacturer's serving size (100 grams) is large.

Is the flavor more maple or molasses like? I have tried DiabetiSweet Brown and it is maple like instead of brown sugar.

I agree that this new product is pricey, however, most recipes do not use a lot of faux brown sugar so it might worth it if the flavor is spot on for brown sugar.

I've tried the sweet perfection which is made from the chicory root. I didn't care for it because it wasn't very sweet and if I remember right it clumped up and got as hard as a rock. However, I'm going to try the just like sugar for baking. It's suppose to be like powdered sugar so I thought I could add it to my powdered Erythritol. Hopefully it will stop the cooling effect I get when I make cream cheese frosting.

I tried the Just Like Sugar table blend and it didn't seem very sweet. I would add liquid spenda or something to add sweetness.

I gave in and ordered it, too. Probably won't get it until late next week.

I did get my order yesterday, and I sampled it - haven't quite figured how I'll use it in baking. The taste really isn't all that sweet - the texture reminds me very much of splenda. I did mix it with some davinci's and microwaved it (to see what would happen), and it melted well, caramelized a little bit. I'm not a very advanced baker, so I'm not sure how experimental I'll be. I think it will be useful, just not sure how often I'll use it. Happy New Year!!

Yes, don't you wish you could just purchase a small amount of these items to try it out first? I bought (I won't say what I bought) a HUGE amount (only size they had) of one item betting that the recipe would be really good. No other way around it. Well, as it turns out I thought the recipe was awful and was the only one I have actually had to toss. Others I don't care for I eat but delete the recipe. So now I am stuck with a huge amout (and money lost) of this product. I know how I can use it up and will, but still.... wish we could get a sample size first.

You might want to try contacting the manufacturer - I contacted them with a question, and they were fairly quick to respond. Perhaps they would be willing to work with you on a 'trial' amount. I doubt netrition would be able to do anything, directly (but hey, I could be wrong!).
I'm not disappointed, so I'm ok with it, but now that I'm thinking about it - I probably should have taken my own advice and contacted the manufacturer and asked for a trial size, first!!

What a shame. Any chance you will see other recipes using this product? Maybe it was the recipe and not the product.

I'm sure it was, so I will still use the product and know how I will use it, but live and learn. If it is pricey and just for one recipe, then I think I will pass.

I purchased a bottle locally when it first came out. To me, it tastes too much like
oranges to use in any coffee or tea. And it isn't very sweet. This is just my opinion.
I will use it up in baking where the flavor will be masked, but I will not purchase again.
I have not tried the brown.

You're NOT alone. I think we've all done that to some extent, but I'll bet I've spent several hundreds of dollars for ingredients that I ended up tossing into the trash. Thankfully, experience plays a HUGE role in deciding what I want to purchase for my LC baking and cooking...and it is actually a rarity now for me to even consider buying something that everyone is raving about. Glad I've gotten smarter in my old age...

Perhaps some one of us would buy an order, and split it into 4-5 portions, sealing it and sending it out to other interested parties for $4-5 each plus shipping? Or perhaps smaller portions, just trying to keep shipping somewhat in proportion to the rest. I for one would be willing to be one of the guinea pigs....

The way I look at this is, I used to buy foods non-LC I didn't like and felt as though I had wasted my money too. Hot Pockets anyone? Gross. Frozen dinners, frozen pizzas, different new chips, cookies in a tube, etc.

It's just a new learning curve with the LC products.
