    I've been making coconut milk hot cocoa for the past couple of months, but ugh. I really don't like it. I much prefer regular milk, but it makes me gassy

      It's less than half the calories of sugar, actually strengthens teeth instead of rotting them and has none of the aftertaste of over-intensity of stevia.

      I love the concept of stevia but xylitol is way better.

      I use xylitol for baking. You must be very careful when using xylitol in liquid form. It will cause diarrhea.

        I have used xylitol before, but doesn't stevia has fewer carbs? I'm trying to stick to VLC right now due to pregnancy/diabetes.

        Use whatever floats your boat for sweetener

            Yes, I'm aware of this. I think there's worse things you could use. Splenda is just aspartame, right? Aspartame turns to formadlahyde at the right temperature.

            Here's a whole thread on maltodextrin for your viewing enjoyment:

            Like I said, use whatever sweetener floats your boat. I was just trying to keep it on the VLC side.

              Xylitol causes loose stools in large amounts. Just don't overdo it when you first start consuming it.

              Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.
