What are your opinions towards sugar alcohols? Do you count them towards net carbs or not?

 

My opinion:

Hi bbmedic413,

My opinion of sugar alcohols is I wouldn’t touch them with a barge-pole. Anything that close to antifreeze is not something I’d really want to eat for pleasure which does of course have the advantage that I don’t have to count if there’s any type of carb.

If I do want something to sweeten a dish, I tend to use Stevia either as the fresh leaf or dried although to my taste the fresh leaf does taste better.

As hanfordian says, do be careful snacking on anything with sugar alcohols in. They are very easy to overdo and overdoing sugar alcohols can cause all sorts of unpleasantness digestion wise.

Cheers,

Mark
