It isn’t easy to find a natural sugar substitute that tastes good, keeps your blood sugars in check and doesn’t upset your stomach. I was pleasantly surprised to find RxSugar tasted great and was kind to both my blood sugars and my digestive system. I received RxSugar products free of charge, and all opinions are my own.
What Is RxSugar?
RxSugar is the first natural plant-based sugar that contains allulose and has been clinically proven to help support weight management and body fat reduction. It has 90% fewer calories than traditional table sugar, contains zero net carbs, and scores a zero on the glycemic index.
How Is RxSugar Different From Other Sugar Substitutes?
RxSugar, per the FDA, does not have to be listed on the Nutrition Facts label as a sugar or added sugar since it is not metabolized by the body like traditional sugar. Therefore, it does not significantly impact blood glucose levels.
Allulose is the only natural crystal alternative sugar that is patented non-GMO Certified and Tested, Keto Approved, FODMAP Friendly, Kosher, and Halal. It’s also naturally Vegan, Gluten-free, Grain-free, Soy-free, and Cholesterol-free.
How Does It Taste?
I was pleasantly surprised by the taste of RxSugar. It is about 70% as sweet as regular sugar, and I didn’t find it overpowering at all.
First, I tried their easy individual stick sugar packs in my coffee and found no weird aftertaste and no effects on my blood sugar or stomach. Next, I tried their sugar, which comes in an easy-to-use 1-pound canister, for some of my low-carb baking. I found it tasted great, with none of the cooling effect that some other sugar substitutes are known to have. And last but certainly not least, the syrups were the best sugar substitute that I have tried to date. For one breakfast, I sneakily replaced my daughter’s regular maple syrup with RxSugar’s pancake syrup, and she had no idea. She even asked for seconds! It is great knowing that my kids, who don’t eat as low-carb as me, can still enjoy their waffles and pancakes without so much added sugar. And for me, I enjoy making my own protein waffles and love that I can use this syrup liberally!
Where Can I Purchase It and How Much Does It Cost?
RxSugar products are now available nationwide in over 3,000 retailers, including Vitamin Shoppe; you can also order through their website. They offer granulated RxSugar in 1 pound canister or as a 30-pack of individual sticks (coming soon in a variety pack). The business also offers RxSugar in a liquid form, in addition to the pancake syrups, in both maple and chocolate flavors.
All of their products are $12.99, and the website offers free shipping on all orders over $40.
I thoroughly enjoyed all of the RxSugar products and will definitely be making them a staple in my house. The substitute sugar is great to have on hand for my coffee and baking, allowing me to enjoy delicious sweetness without worrying about my blood sugars. Additionally, the syrup has quickly become a family favorite, and I will be purchasing it for a long time to come. I can give RxSugar products my highest recommendation.
