Many of you have been asking for my thoughts on other keto sweeteners not mentioned in this video…
- LAKANTO Monk Fruit Sweetener: A non-GMO monk fruit and erythritol-based sweetener. I’ve been enjoying their maple-flavored syrup in my Rocket Fuel Latte lately. It’s divine!
- Swerve: A non-GMO erythritol-based sweetener. I prefer the confectioners variety, especially in my Keto Overnight “Oats.”
- Truvia: An erythritol, stevia, and natural flavors-based sweetener. Since the erythritol is not guaranteed to be made from non-GMO corn, and the company is not transparent about where the “natural flavors” are derived, I do not recommend using it.
