Boresha's B-Sweet
 
Does anyone know much about Boresha's B-Sweet? I'm curious about it. It says it is low-glycemic, but I'm wondering if it's a high-fructose sweetener? I just can't seem to figure it out from their website. They claim it's a great sweetener for diabetics, kids, etc.

Sounds like Fructose made from the acai berry to me, which is not low carb but is low glycemic.

Sounds like they do a lot of processing to get the fructose out and I'm just guessing but it looks like all the good stuff (fiber) that the acai berry has to offer is processed out.

Just did some cursory reading on it so I could be totally off base.

That's kinda what I thought too... but I didn't know if I was missing something. I actually talked with someone that is associated with the company and she couldn't stop raving about what a fantastic natural sugar replacer it is. Great for diabetics, great for losing weight and I kept asking her if she know if it was basically just fructose, but she said she didn't really know the science end of it. They're sending me a sample of it, but I'm not interested in ingesting fructose. I'll eat strawberries instead and get a lot more bang for my buck.
