Best Low Carb Sweetener:the Best Sweeteners & How To Choose Them

(I often get asked, “What is the best sweetener for a low carb diet? I hope that my previous article about the difference between low carb sweeteners and this article answer that question for you.) In my last article, Low Carb Sweeteners: Choose What’s Best For You, I talked about the differences between artificial sweeteners, natural low carb sugar alternatives, and natural sugar substitutes. I also listed the pros and cons of each, summing up with the statement that “choosing the best sweetener for you depends on your goals and what you are most comfortable with.” I’ve done a lot of low carb baking over the years, and have tried almost every sweetener on the market. I discovered early on that mixing several sweeteners together produces the best “sugar taste” while minimizing the negatives of any one sweetener. I still mix my sweeteners, preferring to use natural low carb sugar alternatives in lieu of artificial. Why? Well, it’s MY personal preference and what I feel most comfortable doing – especially with kids in the house. But I don’t judge, use what you want. My two Favorite Low Carb Sweeteners? Erythritol and Stevia Now let me just quickly say that my very Continue reading >>

    I'll begin this post by informing the reader(s) that I scrolled back to October and didn't see this topic addressed.
    I read the website regarding artificial sweeteners, and the only reason I came up with for avoiding is that it "props up" sugar cravings (or something to that effect). Since the plan is to take up a ketogenic diet after the Whole30 (which permits the use of artificial sweeteners), I would like to know if there is a metabolic reason I should abstain (yes, I know it's a potential neurotoxin, but that's not my concern here).
    Thanks!

  2. missmary

    sorry, but "I know it is a potential neurotoxin" isn't enough for you to avoid it?
    The whole30 is all about eating foods that make you more healthy, and not eating foods that don't. Sucralose doesn't come close to making you more healthy. There is a detailed chapter in It Starts With Food regarding the body and how it responds to sugar/sweeteners, but the short of it is this: take all sugar and sweeteners out of your diet for 30 days. see how you feel. If you still want to add sucralose in afterwards, that's your choice.

Are Artificial Sweeteners Safe For Ketosis?

Artificial sweeteners certainly have bad reputations among the health community. In the keto community only a few sweeteners have any love, and they are not labeled artificial sweeteners. However, we want to give you the facts and reasons for how artificial sweeteners affect ketosis so that you can make up your own mind. In our opinion at Keto Domain, artificial sweeteners are not a healthy option for people whether they are on the keto diet or not. But even though we don’t condone it, we understand that some people like diet coke (sweetened by artificial low or no calorie sweeteners) and they want to know if they can safely drink it on the keto diet. Artificial sweeteners are chemicals that have a sweet taste, usually much sweeter than regular sugar. They are not naturally found in foods. However, some artificial sweeteners do occur naturally in the body in their molecular form. You may be on the keto diet because you want to improve your health without additives or chemicals. If that is the case, you should not use aspartame, sucralose, acesulfame-potassium or saccharin as a sweetener on the keto diet. But there are other reasons why you should not use artificial sweeteners whe Continue reading >>

  1. Ketosis & Sucralose

    Has anyone ever seen sucralose interfere with ketosis? I'm 55 and I started low carbing about 7 weeks ago. It started off very strong and I lost 15 pounds in record time. But I still have 45 to lose. I got a blood ketone meter, was at .4 mmol/L, and decided to cut a bit of protein. Ketones climbed, weight stayed the same. This week I decided to repeat 'induction' and dropped to 20 carbs per day. BUT, for the first time I started using some of the low carb shakes and bars from the company named after the guy who started the low carb movement. I had 1 shake and 1 bar 2 days ago and the same yesterday. My blood ketones have plummeted to .2 and the ketostix show absolutely nothing. Has the sweetener in the the bars and shakes ever had this effect on anyone?
    Another possible complication is I have 2 weeks to prepare for a trip where I'll be walking many miles every day and my physical activity has gone up quite a bit. But I've either fallen asleep too many times while reading or the increase in exercise could have reasonably been expected to increase my blood ketones.
    I'm not in danger of giving up low carb, just frustrated and mystified. No more bars or shakes for me until I get this sorted out.

    "No more bars or shakes for me until I get this sorted out."
    You answered your own question.
    Stay far, far away from those bars and shakes.
    BTW- The ketosis thing is misunderstood.
    You do NOT want to stay in ketosis. You want to go past that and be keto-adapted. If you are doing low carb right, you see signs of ketosis for a few weeks, then as you adapt, you see stix show normal. This means you are on track. Now your body adapted itself to burning fat for fuel, the way it was meant to be, Congrats.

  3. Unregistered

    I had read that the stix would stop showing ketones (as a waste product) but I thought that the blood ketones would still be there...
    I feel like I have read until my eyes are ready to bleed but it looks like I'm not finished yet!
    I would consider tossing the stix in the trash. They seem like more worry than they are worth.
    I have been at this since 2008 and have never done a keto stix.
    I know I minimize carbs. I can't think of anything a keto stix is going to tell me that I am not already doing.

Do Artificial Sweeteners Affect Blood Sugar?

Last week, I started an experiment to better understand how different foods and lifestyle choices impact blood sugar, using a constant-glucose-monitoring device. Today, I’m sharing the results of the first experiment: Do artificial sweeteners affect my blood sugar levels? While the answer may seem obvious – artificial sweeteners contain no sugar – some people still believe there may be an effect. For example, artificial sweeteners could potentially under some circumstances affect insulin levels, indirectly affecting blood sugar and ketone levels. Planning the experiment We designed the following experiment: I would drink a 17 oz (0.5 liters) sugar-free, artificially-sweetened, beverage in 15 minutes. Then, for the next two hours, I would observe my blood-sugar levels using the Dexcom G5 mobile app. To increase the reliability of the experiment, I made sure of four things: 1. That the soda I drank would be caffeine free. 2. That I didn’t eat or drink anything, nor do any form of exercise, 2 hours prior to and after drinking the soda. 3. That my blood sugar was relatively stable for at least 30 minutes before drinking the soda. 4. That I would do the same test at least twice. Continue reading >>

    Aspartame kicks you out of ketosis?
    -fresh

  3. s2000

    Use sucralose (Splenda), Ace-K, saccharin, or stevia, preferably in that order. Splenda is not metabolised for the most part and is very close to eating air. The only one to avoid is Aspartame, as many people get kicked out of ketosis on it. Be careful not to overload on sweeteners however as your body expects sugar to enter the blood stream, and even though it doesn't with fake sugar your body releases some insulin anyhow in expectation. It shouldn't be an issue unless you pour it on.
    Also, kool aid is a BAD idea. it has citric acid in it which can be worse than aspartame, and then amount of sweetener used with kool aid is large (may cause insulin spike). Aspartame is very easy to avoid, but citric acid is almost impossible to avoid in beverages. even flavored water usually has it in it. Some people are more sensative than others. Diet Dr. Pepper is about the only pop that doesnt have any (but it does have aspartame).
    Hope this helps...
