100% Pure Trehalose
too soon to tell
I do not need a substitute for sugar but I am hoping that this will hydrate my cells (plump them up) the way it was suggested on other
websites. I am puzzled that those claims are not made by Swanson. Too soon to tell if it works.

Not that impressed with trehalose
I didn't notice any sustained energy from it. It takes quite a bit to sweeten beverages, so you wind up using the container up pretty quickly, and at ten bucks a pop that's not very economical. I'm gonna stick with Kal brand stevia. Won't be reordering any trehalose.

Great for hydration
This stuff is great, I mix a little bit with gatorade and it's perfect for the heat or if you feel dehydrated, really seems to absorb well.

Trehalose a excellent Sugar Replacement
I just start using Trehalose and I believe it's a nice replacement for sugar. I mix Trehalose with Lankanto Sweetner to help lower the carbs in baked goods. Lankanto is a sugar that uses both Erythitol and Luo Han Guo, which are also two of my favorites. Anyway together these two sugars make a nice combination in bake goods, and yes I will use Trehalose again. It is a much healthier for your body in the long run, and worth the extra cost. Although I do hope the cost will go down as more people by both Trehalose and Lankanto.

Good sugar substitute
I'm on a constant quest for sugar substitutes. This has become my favorite. It's only 50% as sweet as sugar but I add some Stevia to make up the difference. It cooks well and so far I have not seen any gastric problems like the sugar-alcohols can cause. It's also has a low glycemic value which is a good thing too.

Helped us eat less sugar!
I mix this with our table sugar so we get less sugar overall. The kids haven't even noticed! Unlike the whole "sneak soy milk into the regular milk" fiasco. ;-) It's actually a little whiter than table sugar, but very similar in texture.
It is definitely a bit pricey, but if it can help them get less sugar in their herbal tea or cereal, then it's worth it.

I preparation for my New Years diet :) I got this to cut down on sugar. When you put your finger in the jar it feels like grainulated white sugar.The taste is like sugar but less defined and less sweet. If a recipe calls for 1/2 c sugar I use 1/3 c and a couple of scoops of trehalose. The scoop is included. The sweet flavor is there but not as pronounced. No one has complained or noticed!! Every saved calorie helps!!

Excellent sugar substitute
This product is an excellent sugar substitute, with no after taste at all. You do need to use more of this than regular sugar, but it is worth it if you need to cut down on your sugar intake. Wish it came in a bigger bottle, however. This price from Swanson is very good, considering this product is not yet widely available everywhere, and where it is found, it is more expensive than this.
