Being the weekend, not sure when I will hear back. I sure hope it agrees with me as 5 lbs can be a lot if it doesn't or very little if I love it LOL
Their website isn't very good. I just tried it again and when I tried to apply the code in the shopping cart, I got the expired message, but when I applied it on the checkout screen it gave 25% off. So $9 off the 5 lb. bag or $2.25 off the 1 lb. bag. I just ordered the 5 lb. bag for $26.99 with free shipping. I figured I better do it now in case they "fix" the website.

The code worked for me but no free shipping for one pound. They want to charge over $17 to ship it so I did not order.

I put in an order for 7 one 1lb bags a couple of weeks ago and used a code (can't remember which one). I got a call last week from "Travis" who said they were out of the 1-lb bags and asked if I'd like to order a 5# bag instead. I ended up ordering two 5# bags, got free shipping, and they came to $57.58, which is around 5.76 a pound. Not quite as good as you got, Mistizoon at $5.40 a pound, but I'm okay with that. I know I'll enjoy using/experimenting with it, since I got a 1 lb free sample years ago and loved using it.

Travis was extremely nice and helpful--will be ordering from them again!

I just placed an order with NuNaturals and used that coupon code and it worked ok.
TBipp, I wasn't going to order either because I didn't see free shipping as a selection even though it said free shipping over $35. So I went back to main page and then back in to the order and it showed up as a choice. Got free shipping and $11.24 off my order - 5lbs for $33.71 total.
I want to try this for ice cream.

Thank you Callieco. Sounds like a NuNaturals website gremlin is in control!

The discounted price seems to be in line with erythritol & xylitol. I love both but I am not happy with either as a sugar sub for pumpkin pie or cranberry sauce. May have to try this. Please keep us posted.

Don't mean to be gross, but let's just say I'm ready to get my colonoscopy now after trying tagatose in my coffee yesterday. Need to take tiny steps with the stuff, I guess...

Oh no! Maybe that's why they recommend buying only 1 lb. at first!

Oh no! I sure hope it doesn't effect me that way but a lot of the AS's do. Maybe I will be able to tolerate it a little at a time mixed in with other sweeteners.

Betcha you feel light and airy today

Goodness, Diana, so sorry to hear that. Thank you for letting us all know though before we go overboard with it when it arrives in the mail.

I'm so sorry to hear this, Diana. Neither I nor DH have had problems, but we are not sensitive to many ingredients others find objectionable. Did you eat a lot to cause this reaction? Or will the tiniest amount cause distress?

I see that it's been used on a Norwegian LC forum! It's called Tagaetsse here.

Some say they feel nothing.
Some feel weird (not in the stomach, just a blood rush sort of)
Some get a tummy-ache after consuming just tiny amounts.
If they mix tagatose and maltitol they get issues. Big time!

Fun

tagatess is only 39% tagatose. It is also 39% isomalt (tummy troubler there), and a little inulin/oligofructosaccharide mixed in as well. All of these are known to cause issues for some people.

I just had 1 teaspoon of tagatose in my coffee yesterday morning, so it might have been that or something else. I did make that pizza crust of Maria's with all that psyllium a couple of days ago, too. I feel pretty cleaned out, whatever it was!

Ah, yes, Diana. That psyllium will clean you out! I'd be interested to hear if you think you have any other adverse effects from the tagalose. Alonewithyou, that Tagaetsse is a mixtures of sweeteners including isomalt. So I don't know which bad reactions are due to the isomalt and which are due to the tagalose.

My 5 lbs. of tagatose just arrived and the label does have a "laxative effect" warning on it! I don't recall seeing that on the website. I guess I'll try some this weekend while I'm home just in case!

I finally got to order it! I went for 2 lbs. It's not like it's free, so... Hope there will be a few recipes in this thread that I can try.

I made the Pecan turtle cookies from Carolyn's website, All Day I Dream About Food. The caramel really made the cookies delicious. I did not get a crispy cookie, as I hoped. I used half erythritol and 1/2 tagatose and baked them at 325 instead of 350. Next time I will bake them longer. These are definitely company worthy, so I will be interested to hear if the tagatose bothers anyone else on the board. So far no problems for DH or me. But I never like to serve questionable ingredients to guests.

Got mine yesterday, will be mixing with other sweeteners until I see if it bothers me. I dipped my finger in it and it did taste good.

I got mine yesterday and made a cup of hot chocolate with the Tagalose last night. I used 2 teaspoons along with 2 teaspoons of erythritol. I didn't have any reaction last night or this morning so I guess I can tolerate it ok. I can't eat maltitol, polydextrose and most of the other sugar subs that cause intestinal issues so I'm kind of surprised.

I used Tagatose and made the coffee cake that Ginaa posted on the coffee cake thread. It was really good and very rich tasting, like a carmel pound cake. The cake was golden brown and had a nice cake texture. Both my husband and I felt I could have used a little less Tagatose for that particular recipe. Hands down, this is the best low carb sweetner I have used. I just ordered a 5 lb. bag using the discount code FB1F, so I am happy to get this at a discounted price.

Update: I have been easing into the tagatose--I used it for Carolyn F's Raspberry Crumb coffeecake Saturday morning (for about 1/2 the sweetener). No problems.
