5.0 fantastic product! by JenniferLee
Lakanto is a great sugar substitute. It doesn't have the odd flavor of something like stevia, and it doesn't wreck my stomach the way that xylitol does. It really tastes like sugar, and I digest it comfortably. It does have that strange cool feeling in your mouth, which, of course, regular sugar doesn't have. But that doesn't bother me at all. It's a fantastic product. I use it daily. I'm so grateful to have this option!

5.0 No Brain Fuzz by Paige
Absolutely love it! It's a tradition of ours to make cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning and we were never able to create a sugar-free recipe that we truly loved. This was the best sugar substitute we've found so far for baking! Also, recently, I added water to some Lakanto to make a liquid to replace agave nectar and it worked great!

So you're committed to achieving optimal health (and fighting any health issues you may be confronted with) and perhaps you've already greatly reduced or completely eliminated sugar because you know it feeds yeast, ages you quickly and leads to all kinds of serious degenerative diseases. But let's face it, there are times when something deliciously sweet is welcomed. Yet, when we do eat it, many of us feel guilty.

We humans should not feel guilty about our desired to enjoy the sweet taste. This desire for sweet-tasting foods and drinks is quite normal. In fact, our very first food, mother's milk, was warm and sweet and we've formed an emotional bond with this taste. Trying to fight and use "willpower" to avoid the desire for the sweet taste is not the answer! That would be a losing battle.

As you know, though, refined white sugar and corn syrup is poison and even natural sweeteners like agave and honey will feed yeast and make our blood more acidic. So what choice do you really have?

Introducing Lakanto, the closest natural sweetener to sugar ever, in terms of its taste and its versatility; but not in terms of the risks it poses to your health! In fact, as you will learn below, quite the contrary.

Imagine being able to (again) make sweet treats for yourself and your family that actually taste like you used sugar, but that won't have the ill effects of sugar. Impossible? Not any longer! We are thrilled to able to bring this wonderful new zero calorie all-natural sweeter that has been extremely popular in Japan to the U.S.

In the past, if you tried to make a "healthy" birthday cake for your child or bake cookies for the holidays, you may have resorted to using agave syrup or honey in your baked goods, feeling that these were better alternatives to sugar; but those natural sweeteners do feed candida and other pathogens.

Unlike sugar and the other natural sweeteners, though, Lakanto does not feed the harmful yeast (candida) and bacteria in your body. Lakanto is even safe for diabetics! And Lakanto, the amazing all-natural sweetener, has:

  • Zero calories
  • Zero glycemic index
  • Zero additives
  • No influence on your blood sugar and insulin release
  • A one-to-one ratio with sugar -- so it's easy to measure and use

What’s the difference? Taste.
Golden has a flavor similar to brown sugar or molasses.
Classic has a flavor more similar to table sugar.

Frequently Asked Question
"I've been searching for something that will help my family eat healthier, but they really don't like the taste of sugar substitutes. Does Lakanto really taste good and is it safe for everyone in my family?"

Answer: Yes, absolutely! Lakanto has been safely enjoyed in Japan for over 10 years. The Japanese Ministry of Health doesn't just approve Lakanto for use in Japan, they actually recommend it for weight loss, obesity and blood sugar problems like diabetes. Lakanto has GRAS status here in the US. In fact, over 9,000 hospitals in Japan serve Lakanto to their patients.

Coincidently, at the very same time that Donna Gates began providing stevia to America, a prominent business man in Japan began a quest to find an even closer substitute for sugar. He owned Saraya Corporation, a company with an excellent reputation for bringing healthy products to the Japanese consumer. In fact, after the war ended Japan was devastated, and besides starvation and homelessness, sanitation was a serious concern. Saraya Corporation introduced a gargling machine that was (and still is) used in schools, businesses, restaurants and hospitals all over Japan. These gargling machines greatly reduced the number of illnesses and even saved countless lives.

Saraya Corporation also became the Japanese leader in environmentally safe cleaning products for personal, home and commercial use. Their excellent products are made with coconut oil. Today Saraya Corporation devotes millions of dollars each year to provide protection and safe homelands to the pygmy elephants living in the regions where their coconuts are harvested.

Mr. Saraya has a deep interest in our children's health so he challenged his team of brilliant researches and scientists to develop the perfect natural sugar substitute. After two and a half years of relentless experimentation, Lakanto was introduced and has now become Japan's third most popular sweetener, behind sugar (and sadly) aspartame. We believe that the synchronicity between Mr Saraya's intentions and Body Ecology's own allowed our worlds to eventually be drawn together, and today Lakanto can be a part of your world as well.

Lakanto is safe for anyone - kids, diabetics, people watching their weight, hypoglycemics, and, of course, anyone with a sweet tooth. And yes, Lakanto gives you the flavor of sugar, without the many downsides.

What is Lakanto Made From?
The two natural ingredients in Lakanto are Non-GMO erythritol and the supersweet extract of the luo han guo fruit. Erythritol is a sugar alcohol naturally found in grapes, pears, mushrooms, soy sauce, cheese, wine and beer, so it and has been part of the human diet for thousands of years.

You may be familiar with other sugar alcohols like xylitol, sorbitol, and malitol used in sugar-free candies and chewing gum. But erythritol is different and much better than these other sugar alcohols because it is fermented. Yes, it is made by fermenting the sugar in corn. Many people have trouble with foods sweetened with sugar alcohols. Diarrhea and gas and bloating are frequent complaints. But Lakanto does not cause diarrhea, gas and bloating. We believe it may be because Lakanto is made by fermentation while the other sugar alcohols are made from hydrogenation.

The Erythritol in our Lakanto is:

  • Specially fermented from non-GMO corn so that you know it's safe.
  • Naturally low calorie because your body excretes about 90% of it.
  • The 10% that remains in your system turns into harmless gases and short chain fatty acids in your large intestine. (NO, Lakanto will NOT cause embarrassing flatulence.)

Erythritol is sweet, but when used alone in a product does not taste like sugar. Only when it was combined with the sweet-tasting and medicinal fruit luo han guo - in a unique patented process - was Saraya able to create an amazing replica of sugar. The exotic luo han guo fruit grows high in the Chinese mountains, in the Guangxi province.

The Chinese have been using luo han guo fruit as a sweetener and natural remedy for years. They dry the fruit, which has a sweet toffee or caramel-like flavor, and use it in teas to ease fever, coughing and phlegm. They even use the tea for digestive troubles. In fact, the Chinese call luo han guo the "longevity fruit," because the people who live where it is cultivated often reach the ripe old age of 100!

Scientists have studied luo han guo and its health benefits extensively, and they've found that this rare fruit has amazing health properties:

  • Anti-carcinogenic
  • Regulate blood sugar
  • Able to prevent and decrease oxidative stress related to diabetes
  • Prevent tooth decay
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Inhibit tumor growth
  • Antioxidant
  • Antihistiminic

The luo han guo fruit is naturally sweet. In fact, the special extract is 300 times sweeter than sucrose! Because luo han guo extract is sweet without affecting blood sugar, it is perfect for a healthy sugar substitute. Luo han guo extract in Body Ecology's Lakanto has:

  • Zero calories. Your body does not break down the unique chemical components of the fruit like other simple sugars and carbohydrates.
  • Zero glycemic index. Because your body metabolizes luo han guo differently, your blood glucose and insulin levels do not rise like they do with other sugars.
  • Zero additives. Lakanto is made of the natural extract of the luo han guo fruit and erythritol.

Together, the extract of luo han guo and erythritol make one of the best healthy natural sweetener discoveries of the century: Lakanto.

Frequently Asked Question:
"The other natural sweetener you have long recommended, stevia, tastes great in drinks, but not so great in baked goods. Sometimes I like to bake though. Are you sure I can really bake with Lakanto?"

Answer: Lakanto is easy to use and tastes great in all kinds of baked goods because it bakes evenly, unlike most other natural sugar substitutes! The texture of your baked goods will be excellent! When you first taste it right out of the package, you'll notice that Lakanto actually has a flavor that is reminiscent of maple syrup but in a crystal form. It also looks a lot like turbinado sugar, the coarse granulated brown sugar you might have seen in the health food store, but Lakanto has none of the calories or health risks.

You can use Lakanto like you would use regular sugar. In fact, it is a one to one substitute for sugar.

  • Looks like sugar
  • Tastes like sugar
  • Bakes like sugar
  • Smells like sugar

Just a few of Lakanto's many other uses include:

  • Coffee ( if you must drink it)
  • Cakes
  • Cookies
  • Pumpkin or sweet potato pie
  • Other baked goods
  • Frozen desserts
  • Quinoa cereal or your favorite cereal - sprinkled on top with cinnamon and butter

Lakanto is a protective sweetener for:

  • Diabetics
  • Growing kids
  • Anyone who wants to slow the signs of aging
  • People with compromised immunity
  • Weight loss
  • Hypoglycemics

If you are serious about avoiding sugar, but still want to satisfy your sweet tooth, then Lakanto is the sugar solution. At Body Ecology, we believe in balance, and enjoying the sweet taste regularly is part of great health! Now you can enjoy sweet-tasting foods without worrying about your waistline, your blood sugar or your health. Lakanto is the best alternative to sugar we have ever used, and we are proud to bring it to you. Enjoy!

Tip: Put lakanto in your coffee grinder or blender to use less and still have the same sweetness quotient in your recipes, drinks, etc. Give it a try!

Lakanto is the best alternative to sugar we have ever discovered by far. Use it in all your favorite recipes for calorie-free flavor that actually improves your health.

5.0 Great stuff! by Jean S.
When you have a craving for something sweet or just want to make a dessert for someone else and have a bit yourself, use Lakanto! The white version is a bit sweeter than sugar so use a little less. (I bought both the white and golden but have used the golden yet.) (Posted on 5/31/2015)

5.0 Like the flavor. by Paige
I've tried both the white and the golden, and I like both of them. The white is nice because it doesn't add color to what you're making. But I think I like the golden better because it has a bit of a maple like flavor instead of just being sweet. I use it for desserts. (Posted on 5/30/2015)
5.0 Love it! by CindyP
I've used both the classic and golden versions of this sweetener and it is a great substitute. Easy to measure like sugar so it's easy to use in recipes, or just to sweeten my coffee. I have not experienced any sugar spikes or other problems from using this. After trying a bunch of different sweeteners with all kinds of promises, the only sweeteners I use now are Lakanto and BE Stevia (by the way, the best stevia available anywhere). (Posted on 5/27/2015)

This is my go to sweetener when I need to add sugar to something. Doesn't cause any rise in blood sugar and is one of the few safe ones out there. It is spendy, but hopefully the price will come down when the demand gets higher. It's the closest thing to real sugar! (Posted on 12/28/2014)

This product is way better than stevia if you want a sugary like option. I have used it in tea and baking and it is excellent and tastes great. My husband who will not use stevia likes this as well and my daughter will eat in on plain cereal as a sweetener and loves it. So happy to find a healthy sugar free option other than stevia, stevia is great for certain things but lakanto is great for everything. (Posted on 9/6/2014)

5.0 Excelllant product - this is the only sweetner that my son (16) will let me use. use by Yankeeoz
Our whole family loves this natural sweetner. It tastes great and has no bitter aftertaste.

Although it's a bit pricey, its okay because we don't eat sweet desserts very often (maybe every 2-3 weeks). I put this in my son's smoothies and he loves it. (Posted on 9/3/2014)
4.0 Great product by Beth
I ordered the Lakanto with some reservation. It is delicious with no aftertaste! Using it in my herbal teas, and as a sugar replacement. The sweetness is not as highly concentrated as granulated sugar, but only took a couple of days for me to adjust my palate to it! Will continue to use! (Posted on 9/2/2014)

5.0 Never use regular sweetener again by Diane
This is the MOST AMAZING product I have ever used. I love sweets and can't stay away from them. I highly recommend this product. I use it for everything except liquid drinks, such as tea where I use stevia instead. I use it as a replacement for sugar...I don't get the high nor the low that I get from sugar, but it tastes great! Unlike stevia, which can have a bit of a funny after taste, this has none. Cheers to Body Ecology for make a such a HUGE difference in my life. (Posted on 4/28/2014)

1.0 never received order-poor customer service by frustrated
Buyer Beware--because these products can only be delivered by fed x ground, (I cannot receive deliveries where I live, I have a PO Box) it has been very difficult for me to receive my oder, which I placed over a month ago- and still have not received. Someone in my office did not recognize my name and did not sign for the package when it came weeks ago, and it was sent back to the Body Ecology warehouse. But the Body Ecology customer service person told me it had been delivered to me, which was incorrect and confusing. After spending days tracking down my package locally I finally discovered through our local Fed x delivery guy that my package was sent back to the warehouse. The Body Ecology customer service person knew nothing about it, and after calling and emailing several times, I got a different Body Ecology customer service person who stated that I could not receive that order and I would have to wait for a refund, then re-order it again. The refund never came, and I could find no information about my refund status from the Body Ecology customer service person. Finally today I called the warehouse directly (314-991-1900--Sarah) and she was very helpful--I was thrilled. Finally, someone who could help me and give me some answers--she has arranged to have my order reshipped to me on a date when I know I will be able to receive it in my office. Thanks Sarah. I am disappointed in the compete lack of professional customer service from the Body Ecology customer service people. (Posted on 4/9/2014)

5.0 Fools my taste buds by EMOD
I have paid for just about every sweetner, natural and from the labs of nasty people. So far, and for me there is only ONE true test, does it fool my taste buds into thinking my morning coffee is flavored with good ole sugar. I can stomach sweetners in every other form except that one.. and Lakanto comes through with flying colors. So much that my first $40 package is in serious danger of expiring before the CASE I purchased arrives. Yes, 12 pack case, it's just worth it. I am not that greedy, but to convert others I shall need to put packages in their hands. Once you've used it you'll pay the pusher to get more. It's really that much above the other after-taste leaving lab bred nasty stuff that the big chemical companies kill us with "for our own good" daily. Even if it turns out the stuff will make me grow an extra limb or a 3rd eye somewhere I'm going to keep using it. It's fantastic.. it's evil expensive but fantastic! (Posted on 1/10/2014)

I really like Lakanto. I use different sweeteners for different foods; mainly local raw honey and coconut palm sugar.

It is PERFECT with hazelnut milk, dark cocoa powder, vanilla, and cinnamon - the perfect hot cocoa! (Posted on 12/27/2013)

2.0 Way too expensive! by Co
I purchased this as our family can not stand the taste of Stevia (know it's natural, but it tastes unnatural to us), while it tastes good, you have to use a ton to get a sweet taste and so the cost does not out weight the benefit - you're better off purchasing Erythritol as this is all Lakanto is, (only don't purchase Emerald Forest's as they are owned by a Pharm company and probably use GMO corn...). Totally suckered in on this product and very disappointed, we went through this $35.00 bag in about 2 wks, HORRIBLE waste of money. Hence the two stars. (Posted on 11/29/2013)

5.0 Heaven for a BED follower by Artemis
I heard about Lakanto, and was keen to try it. Up to now I've used Stevia as my sweetener, which is OK but doesn't give the same results as sugar. I tried Xylitol, but it didn't feel right for my body - lots of wind, and it felt like poison. I had a friend in the US post me 2 packets of Lakanto, and WOW, I'm so excited. My husband has been making some BED-friendly Crème Brulee with the Lakanto, and I've been using it in smoothies, and it's so much like sugar, but is permitted on BED diet!!!! Woohoo!!!! What a find - I couldn't be happier with the results from it, and the taste. It's like being in Heaven. (Posted on 11/12/2013)
5.0 Can't live without it. by Cindy
I bake non wheat cookies with lakanto, I use it in my espresso, I use it on hot cereal, in baked beans, etc. I like the taste. I have trouble with stevia, it's got an aftertaste that I can't tolerate, but lakanto is like using real sugar. I really love it. (Posted on 11/10/2013)

I love the lakanto for a sugar substitute - I just wish it wasn't so expensive.

2.0 bad side effects by kim
I have tried Lakanto twice. The first time I liked it but soon had terrible head pain, in my cheekbones and in and behind my eyes, and the front part of my head. I could barely comb my hair for the pain. The only thing I could deduce was the Lakanto so I stopped using it and the pain stopped. I forgot about them and started using Lakanto again, to get back on a healthier track. The head pain came back. I am very curious to know if anyone else has had this reaction, to anything.

Diagnosed with diabetes 3 years ago, using sugar subs but not liking it. Tastes like chemicals. This looks and feels like sugar. And tastes like sugar. Was able to make my mom's meringue cookies which I was unable to do with any of the artificial baking products on the market. The gastric problems experienced by some are probably from the sugar alcohols. I don't use it a lot, originally bought the brown sugar and just purchased the white. Going to make my jalapeno pepper jelly with it so I can have some. Thanks! However, I would like to see more info about how it's made and any research on it. (Posted on 8/29/2013)

5.0 happy with it by glo
No aftertaste ..no chemicals to destroy my neuro system ..no digestive problems. I love everything about it but the price. Since I use it for everything it doesn't last nearly long enough.

5.0 love this by ET
I love this sweetener. It's a little crunchy sometimes, but never a problem. So excited to find more non-glycemic choices for sweeteners. We like it so much better than stevia for baking, never an aftertaste. We use it in baked goods, sprinkled on nuts before toasting; most everything that we need a sweetener for. Still use Stevia in coffee or tea, but could easily switch to this. Great stuff. (Posted on 8/17/2013)

4.0 Not bad - but is is healthy by MT
This is good - quite sweet tasting, but tastes natural, like a light brown sugar flavor. My only concern is how healthy it is - and I doubt something that tastes this sweet is all natural or completely healthy, so I choose to eat it in moderation (rarely) (Posted on 7/30/2013)
3.0 Great sweetener, but... by Sharon
I have read all of the product description and a lot of the other reviewers comments. I was glad that I was not the only one that experienced digestive upset after eating Lakanto. I am hoping with continued use, as stated by other users, that my symptoms will improve because of the Luo Han. (Posted on 7/27/2013)
5.0 tastes the best by felicity

5.0 Worth Every Penny by LFB
Lakanto is an excellent product with a taste that is very satisfying. Used in various ways such as sweetening hot beverages, baking, salad dressing and yogurt desserts - it is by far the best alternative to sugar ... for all the reasons stated on this website ... and more! (Posted on 6/10/2013)
5.0 This is the best sweetener! by Rose-of-Eli
I am a diabetic and I have been searching for natural sweeteners for awhile. I cannot use Stevia because for a variety of reasons so Lacanto was a Godsent product! This amazing very low calorie sweetener does not have the bitter aftertaste of other sweeteners, it withstands heat, it has a pleasant taste reminding of maple syrup - but not overpowering - and it is not prohibitively expensive! The best part is that Lacanto has pure Luo Han Guo extract as an ingredient, a very expensive product by itself; so the 'marriage' between the Erythritol and Luo Han Guo gives us a superior product at an affordable price. But there is even a GREATER benefit that surprised me: its ANTI-INFLAMATORY quality! The amount of Luo Han Guo in Lacanto is apparently sufficient to remove the arthritis pain from my joints and make them flexible again! Thank you, Donna Gates! (Posted on 6/4/2013)

5.0 Luo Han by Valdoria
Just letting those know that this is a super healthy product. Luo Han is certainly one of the top healthiest sugars if you have a sweet tooth and wish to remain in good health, definitely give it a go.

I will advise that like Xylitol, Luo Han has some anti fungal and anti viral attributes which are great for your health. However, you may have a detox reaction if you have "bugs" in your gut. While it may be uncomfortable at first, as you regain your health and get rid of the bugs, this should go away. (Posted on 5/24/2013)

2.0 feel strange if I eat too much of it by ninabravo
I just noticed a strange feeling when I woke up today and the only new thing I had been eating was the Lakanto. I'm very sure it's the Lakanto making me feel wierd. Felt fine after a few glasses of water and some spicy food that seamed to wash it away. I'm going to use the rest of the bag sparingly. (Posted on 5/15/2013)

4.0 Good sugar alternative by busy mom
I can taste a little difference with Lakanto, so I use less than the 1:1 ratio. It is a little sweet. (Posted on 5/7/2013)
4.0 Good product but by pathways
I have just started using it and so far am satisfied with the product. What i am not satisfied with, however, is that it is advertised as being calorie free. It has 4 grams of carbs which are equivalent to 16 calories. Therefore, this is not a zero calorie product. That is the same number of calories 1 tsp of sugar has. Of course, there are other reasons to use it but don't use it as a calorie saver instead of sugar (Posted on 4/20/2013)
5.0 great replacement for sugar by steve

4.0 Lankato by JB
This product is such an amazing sugar replacement! It does have an interesting "cooling effect" and does have a sort of maple taste. It truly is delicious and tastes so much like sugar. Unfortunately for me, it does have 2 downsides: 1) It's a little too amazing. I found myself wanting to make "sugary" treats all of the time with it. 2) It is so expensive. I feel guilty ordering it again. So in short, if you have loads of money and don't have a crazy sugar/carby addiction order it! You will not be sorry! It tastes way better than Stevia! (Posted on 4/13/2013)

2.0 Too Expensive with available alternatives by Caljac
At $20+ a pound it is way too expensive! It taste good, but there must be price gauging going on for it to be this expensive. Not worth the price when you have other all natural alternatives like shügra that have the same great taste and even prevent tooth decay and inflammation for less than 1/2 the price. (Posted on 4/12/2013)

5.0 Freakin' Awesome! by Joshua
Lakanto Rocks! Best sugar replacement ever. If you have never had it, there are two significant differences between this and sugar to be aware of. 1. There is a cooling effect as the Lakanto melts onto your tongue. This is really no big deal and easy to get adjusted to, but is different from sugar. 2. The price is much higher than sugar. Other than that I am confident that you will find Lakanto to be a perfect replacement for sugar. I really can't say enough good things about this product! (Posted on 3/15/2013)
5.0 Absolutely amazing by Cija

2.0 Disappointed in a corn-based product by Laura
For those who follow the blood type diet protocols, I think I am correct in remembering that not a single bloodtype can do corn, and it is one very difficult food to avoid, as it is in everything! It would be hard to know if the fermentation process destroys the corn lectins responsible for blood agglutinization---who can answer that one?? I would be much happier to have the source of the erythritol come from one of the other sources mentioned, which, ironically, no one ever makes erythritol from! It's always corn. But they tout pears & mushrooms and such. I'm not convinced that this huge allergen and universal problem lectin is annihilated in this product. Also, the makers of Splenda have come out with an identical product called Nectresse August 2012. (Posted on 2/1/2013)
5.0 Great sugar substitute! by Nancy

Has a wonderful flavor and tastes very much like maple sugar. However, one seems to need to use a whole lot in a recipe to match the sweetness of even stevia. Like using vanilla stevia in drinks -- don't know if I'll buy again, as the price is way too high. My big question is, how come other companies aren't selling it and will the cost go down once it becomes more popular? (Posted on 12/15/2012)

Lakanto is the ultimate sugar substitute because not only is it natural and healthy (low glycemic and zero calories), but it does not have a taste that adversely affects the foods you are preparing to eat.

2.0 Didn't agree with me by Tashi
I was so excited to receive the Lakonto in the mail and to start experimenting with it. When it arrived I decided to have some in a mug of hot tea as I hadn't had sweetened tea in some time. The taste was o.k. I still felt it do a strange thing to my tonge though not unlike what stevia does in my mouth. Then a short time afterward I was feeling queasy and my stomoch was upset. I directly linked this with the Lakanto since I hadn't had anything else to eat. I have been hesitant to try it again as the feeling was quite uncomfortable. I took my bag of Lakonto with me when I went to visit my mother in law who happens to be a diabetic. I decided to make some banana bread for her and I got rave reviews from 2 people on that bread. They didn't seem to have any adverse affects from it. I guess I should try it again and perhaps in something I have baked rather than in tea and see if I have the same reaction. If it works for you it is probably a pretty good product and option. (Posted on 10/24/2012)

4.0 Will continue to use Lakanto. by Sandra
So far I have used Lakanto in 3 desserts. The key lime pudding recipe and the chocolate mousse recipe from the Lakanto Cookbook and my version of chocolate chip cookies. I was satisfied with the sweetness of the Lakanto in all the recipes. I missed the homemade taste you get with butter and sugar as it carmelizes in cookie recipes. I used real butter, just refrigerated the dough before baking to prevent the cookies from spreading like the Lakanto Cookbook had warned, but it didn't give that butter /sugar chemical reaction flavor. But, I would still bake them again because they did satisfiy my sweet tooth and I actually liked them better the more I ate them. As for the key lime pudding recipe; it wasn't the Lakanto's fault. That recipe was terrible. The chocolate mousse recipe was better , especially when I made the whipped cream with the Lakanto (which was really good) then folded it all into the chocolate mousse.

I had a physical reaction to the sweetener. I made the zucchini muffin recipe and ate 2 of them. Later that evening I awoke to itching arms from the elbow down to the hands. I hadn't eaten anything new other than this sweetener. I also have been sensitive to corn in the past, but have never had this type of reaction. I think it's the corn sensitivity - perhaps the fermentation of it. (Posted on 8/28/2012)
5.0 My new best friend sweetner!!! by mtjack01@yahoo.com
Love the Lakanto! It is worth the expense! It truly is great on cereal as well as baking or in coffee! There is absolutely no aftertaste that even Splenda has, and it's sweeter in baking goods than Spelenda. Love this stuff!!! (Posted on 8/26/2012)
4.0 pretty good by Irene
Lakanto is surprisingly tasty. It just puts my mind at easy that the whole family is not using artificial sweeteners.
Its not super sweet, but its not bad. Doesn't have an aftertaste which is very nice.

5.0 Lakanto is Great! by Bernadette
I love this stuff. It's so great for baking, since it measures equally, making it so much easier to convert recipes.

5.0 Great sugar alternative by Sportlr
I have been in a search for a good tasting, healthy alternative to sugar, and finally found it! The taste of the typical other choices (stevia, dextrose etc) is not similar enough to sugar to use in most recipes. I have used my first bag of Lakanto for baking and as a sweetener in my coffee and I am hooked. Definitely worth a try and worth the $. (Posted on 5/14/2012)

4.0 Great product! by Batman
I don't notice a difference when I use this in baking from regular sugar. I also like the caramel-like flavor. I wish this product was cheaper because I have TONS of friends, family, and co-workers that would buy it but can't afford it. Also I do worry about the erythritol in it because I have heard it is hard on the digestive tract which is what I thought was what body ecology is trying to correct. Even though it says it doesn't cause the symptoms (gas/bloating) I still wonder internally what is happening. I have not followed the body ecology yet but plan to start in 2 weeks and so have huge digestive problems that I can't tell if lakanto irritates it further or not. I got this information from Dr. Mercola (Posted on 5/2/2012)

4.0 the best substitute around for regular sugar by healthy choices
i have tried other substitutes for sugar in my recipes, lakanto so far seems to be the best substitute to use in place of regular sugar. however, using lakanto in your baked goods recipes does change the texture of your baked goods. i have noticed a reduction in the moisture of the baked goodies and a slight alteration in the taste as well. (Posted on 4/18/2012)

5.0 Lakanto by Cindy
I have been searching for a sugar substitute and this product gave me what I was hoping for and then some! It is by far the best product of its kind on the market!

5.0 Sweet without the side effects! by Jeanine
This works great for sweetening hot beverages, baked goods, etc. with no noticeable difference from sugar. I've tried other natural sweeteners (e.g. agave) and always experience the side effects (crash afterwards, etc.). Not with Lakanto! (Posted on 4/12/2012)

3.0 mixed review by northward
i do a fair amount of baking and have tried many sweeteners in the pursuit of gluten-free living. can't decide how i feel about lakanto yet-- it is a sweetener for sure but it seems to change the texture to change causing products poof up more. this could be a benefit in some cases-- just another variable to know about. i find there's a subtle change of flavor as well, not metallic like some stevia can be, but the flavor is different. have wondered if the corn component is involved here. it's not unpleasant, just different. and cost is a factor. (Posted on 4/10/2012)
5.0 I really like lakanto by Jillybean
This is my favorite sweetner over stevia and xyliol. The only problem is that it is very expensive and I can't always buy it because of other priorities. Please let me know if there are any specials on this product or any price reductions. (Posted on 4/8/2012)
5.0 This is Awesome Stuff! by JV

5.0 Superb sweetener!!! by Astrid
This is the best for baking! I love Body Ecology Stevia and it works great in a lot of applications but it just doesn't do the trick when you're baking. My bag of Lakanto is almost gone and I have to order another one. I was worried that it would give me a headache like the supermarket brand version but it didn't. I feel great! I've been making so many yummy treats with it. (Posted on 4/8/2012)

5.0 expensive but worth it by Daisy
I tried working with stevia and xylitol for a long time before I finally caved in and sprang for a bag of Lakanto. I never looked back. Stevia in any form (even the powdered leaf) has a weird aftertaste, and xylitol is almost chemically sweet with a disturbing cold sensation in the mouth. Lakanto has a little bit of that cold sensation but the flavor is much fuller. Also it's easier to use in recipes than either stevia or xylitol. I use less Lakanto than the amount of sugar called for, but once you figure out your preference the conversion is easy. (Posted on 3/23/2012)
5.0 Excellent by Sandy
Incredible that is all I can say, I do not have any problems with sugar other than I know it is poison so I have removed it from my det. I do like to have a couple of things sweetened and I used to use agave syrup but I noticed it bothered my stomach. Lakanto tastes excellent and does not bother mee at all. I wish they had travel pakets. (Posted on 3/23/2012)

5.0 Has sugar running scared! by Avis
I've been using Lakanto since BED introduced it, and have found it to be a consistently great sugar substitute. I've even converted friends who swore they couldn't give up sugar into Lakanto fans. No bitter aftertaste of Stevia and (unlike xylitol) fermented to reduce digestive reactions. Basically it tastes like brown sugar, so its perfect for baking. My only complaint is the same as everyone else's - the astronomical price. It's especially painful because it used to be both cheaper and in a bigger bag. That being said, I just ordered a new bag. For me, it's pretty crucial to breaking a longstanding sugar addiction. (Posted on 1/8/2012)

2.0 good, but misleading and WAY too expensive by Lisa
I bought this product twice--it's way too expensive! Make sure you know how much 800g really is before you buy it!
This produce is great, tastes good, and works in many things (but does not melt).
In place of this, ZSweet works just as well and costs significantly less (and can get it in some stores). Both products are primarily erythritol, and ZSweet is a tiny bit stevia whereas Lakanto is a tiny bit luo han. (note: Truvia is erythritol and stevia...but it's owned by Coco Cola, so I'd go for other brands first!). You could also buy erythritol on its own and just add a slight bit of stevia to it---you'll save tons of money!
That being said, I love this product, but there's no way I'm paying for it again! I feel it is very misleading to say it is Luo han, when it is mostly erythritol. (Posted on 12/21/2011)

5.0 Tastes Great! by sconger01
It almost reminds me of brown sugar and tastes like regular sugar. I was very pleased with the taste and no after taste. (Posted on 9/6/2011)

My son who craves sweet taste, loves it. (Posted on 9/5/2011)

Great product for baking. and of course to add to anything to sweeten up. (Posted on 9/4/2011)
5.0 Excellent Product! by Sambista
Lakanto Sweetener is an excellent tool for all of your healthy baking needs, particularly as a substitute for brown sugar. I just made a carmelized sugar cake with Lakanto and it was delicious! (Posted on 9/4/2011)
5.0 Excellent! by Eve
Best tasting sweetener. I add it to smoothies, Vitality Super Green, coconut meat cheese/kefir and anything that needs sweetening. Expensive but worth it! (Posted on 9/2/2011)
5.0 Very good sugar Substitute by Hetty
I have used this several times for baking as well as putting it in my quinoa breakfast porridge and I love it! It helps when I need to eat something sweet and also has broadened my food options which is always a plus. I think it tastes just as sweet as or better than "real" sugar. (Posted on 9/1/2011)
5.0 GREAT! by Lisa
I really enjoy using Lakanto in my ice tea It is a great sugar substitute (Posted on 9/1/2011)
4.0 good sugar substitute by Glacierpaws
Overall, I love this product. I bakes like sugar and has a pretty good taste. The only reason it is not excellent is that is is a bit more coarse than sugar so doesn't do well in all recipes. I still buy it by the bulk and use it or stevia. (Posted on 8/30/2011)
1.0 Product almost out of date by Karen
I received the Lakanto Sweetener on 8/18/2011 and upon looking at the back of the bag noticed it had an expiration date of 10/11/11. I contacted customer service on 8/18/2011 and was told I would receive a refund, but as of 8/29/2011 there has not been a refund nor is there a refund pending. Selling a product with less than two months before expiration is not a good way to run a business. Someone should have checked this before shipping it out. I am very disappointed. (Posted on 8/29/2011)
5.0 Excellent product by James
This is the closest product to sugar that I've ever found. My only complaint is that it's rather expensive. (Posted on 8/27/2011)
5.0 Best tasting sugar substitute ever by Marilyn
This is the best tasting sugar substitue I've ever found. I treasure my coffee moments, and this gave them back to me! The biggest (only) drawback is the cost, so I don't use it in large amounts (no baking). What a treat with absolutely no aftertaste! (Posted on 8/17/2011)
4.0 Good Product by DJ
A good product especially for my wife's sweet tooth! (Posted on 8/16/2011)
5.0 Great Product! by Happy
Tastes great in hot drinks, cereal, great for baking and cooking too. Flavor is just as good as sugar, even my family didn't notice. (Posted on 8/13/2011)
5.0 Great sugar substitute by Sue
Really nice sugar substitute. Really broadens baking options and allows that "sweet fix" when needed. (Posted on 8/11/2011)
5.0 excellent by Mamacita
Lakanto is quite good. I tried it last night for the first time on an apply cobbler and served it to company and everyone liked it. It is definitely expensive and there is now a similar variety in the healthfood stores for a bit less and no shipping. I will probably try that next. (Posted on 8/11/2011)
5.0 Lankato Rocks by Yana
What a wonderful sugar replacement. So, happy I decided to try. Helps with my sugar cravings, and tastes amazing. No weird aftertaste. Thanks Donna! (Posted on 8/11/2011)
5.0 awesome substitute for sugar by Lisa
Lakanto is a great substitute for sugar without the negative effects! It tastes great too!! (Posted on 8/11/2011)
5.0 Tastes just like real sugar! And no aftertaste. by Yle
So happy I decided to try Lakanto. Tastes just like real sugar. No fake aftertaste like most sugar substitutes. Its been a blessing to help curb my sugar cravings. Thanks Donna! (Posted on 8/9/2011)
4.0 Lakanto good, but can have allergic reaction from Corn by catgross49
I do like Lakanto very much. Good product, price is rather high, and I don't like the fact that it's derivied from corn. People who are sensitive to corn may have a reaction to it. So, I am hoping that Lakanto will go to a company that makes it Erthitol from something other than corn like grapes. Most people are not allergic to grapes and grapes are a large crop throught out the US. and the World, so it would be easy to change over I would think. So, that's my thought, please change Erythitol from being made from corn to being made from grapes instead, so it safer to eat for all people. (Posted on 8/8/2011)
5.0 Wonderful Product by L.Iglesias
You cannot buy a better product than Lakanto, it's as sweet as sugar, it has no aftertaste, it retains it sweetness even after cooking with it. And the best part, it has a zero index, no calories, and absolutely does not raise your blood sugar. I was recently in the hospital and used Lankato in my coffee and cereal. The nurse kept poking with the sugar meter and my blood sugar remained at or below 100. The poking was no fun, but the results were nothing less than Wow!!! (Posted on 8/7/2011)
5.0 Awesome by grrrlgenius
I use this in everything from tea to coconut flour muffins to low-carb brownies. It's delicious! It's also nice to sweeten up sour kefir for small children. (Posted on 8/4/2011)
5.0 It's nice to have options! by Sonja
We use Stevia yet it is great to have more then one sweetner option! This sweetner truly is good for baking! Thank you BED! (Posted on 8/4/2011)
5.0 Lifesaver! by CBHolmes
This stuff has saved my life on the diet. I have been on it for 4 weeks, and have always had a big sweet tooth. I have used it in cream of buckwheat, zucchini bread, and frozen kefir! I love it! I only wish it were cheaper! (Posted on 8/2/2011)
5.0 Excellent product by Margaret
This is an excellent substitute for sugar. It looks like sugar, tastes like sugar, behaves like sugar. So far (2 weeks) so good. (Posted on 7/28/2011)
5.0 Lakanto by Zooster
Lakanto is the one sweetner that tastes as good as or maybe better than sugar. It cooks and bakes well and is great in coffee and tea. Only drawback is it is expensive. (Posted on 7/26/2011)
5.0 Fantastic by ACMS
I bake many things with Lakanto and love it! It is a fantastic sugar substitute because it tastes so good and it has a similar sweetness to sugar so when subsituting Lakanto in recipes, it is a 1:1 ratio. I am so glad I have found this product as it makes staying away from sugar so much easier. (Posted on 7/23/2011)
4.0 Bakes incredibly well and tastes fantastic. Too expensive. by Maryellen
I love this product, it bakes well and tastes amazing in baked goods. I did try it with icing and that was way too sweet, so I've going to cut down the amount and maybe substitute stevia instead. I wish Body Ecology would sell this in buik and find a way to reduce the price. This is the only sweetner I've found that tastes great in baked goods and doesn't feed yeast, but it's way too expensive. (Posted on 7/22/2011)
5.0 Awesome!! by Sonja
Tastes like sugar, looks like sugar, bakes like sugar but it's not!!! I love it and use it daily! (Posted on 7/22/2011)
5.0 Great taste! by apple
I love Lakanto! I enioy it in my tea, bake with it, and sprinkle it on popcorn or toast for a quick sweet treat. And it doesn't trigger sugar cravings in me so I make healthier food choices and stay balanced. (Posted on 7/15/2011)
5.0 GREAT by Jamie
Great substitute for sugar in recipes especially recipes involving baking or heating. Gives my diabetic husband an opportunity to have sugar-like products made by me with love. (Posted on 7/13/2011)
5.0 Lakanto Sweetener by PDwarren
This is by far the best tasting natural sweetener with zero glycemic index impact I have ever tried. I feel good about eating this when I get a sweet tooth craving; it tastes so good I feel like I'm cheating! (Posted on 7/12/2011)
4.0 Good granulated sweetner by Barb
The taste is quite good. The main down side is the cost. Quite expensive to us in cooking or baking. (Posted on 7/12/2011)
5.0 Awesome substitute for sugar! by Angee'
I was looking for a healthy sweetener to replace sugar for my husband who enjoys drinking hot tea. He loves it and it doesn't have that horrible chemical taste you can get from some other alternative sweeteners. My only wish is that it wasn't so expensive. Other than that Lakanto is our favorite!! (Posted on 7/12/2011)
5.0 Lakanto by emanders
I absolutely love this product! (Posted on 7/12/2011)
5.0 Love this by SADonna
This product works so well in cooking. I use it in sauces, muffins, over oatmeal, and even to sweeten my tea although I prefer Stevia in a drink. Would love to see the price go down a bit. (Posted on 7/12/2011)
5.0 Excellent Product by NShantz
My husband and I enjoy this product very much. It gives us a great tasting sweetner without the glycemic or calories of regular sugar and the chemicals of artificial sweetners. It is great to cook with unlike stevia. (Posted on 7/12/2011)
5.0 Lakanto by equanimous
Lakanto is a great tasting alternative to refined sugar. I've been using it for years. The only down side is the cost. It is extremely expensive. The cost however has not stopped me from re-ordering it. (Posted on 7/12/2011)
5.0 Best sweetener by Donna
I believe that I've tried every sugar alternative, and this is the only one that doesn't have an aftertaste! I'm picky, and just can't find one in the stores that aren't bitter in coffee. I'm so glad I tried Lakanto. (Posted on 7/12/2011)
5.0 Fantastic product...can't live without it! by Dr. Dawn
I am a total sugar snob. I hate all sugar substitutes including Stevia. Lakanto tastes like the real thing. (Posted on 7/12/2011)
5.0 Great Taste by Kathy
Use it in everything along with the Stevia. (Posted on 7/12/2011)
5.0 The best sweetener by Lizzie
I have been off of sugar and other high glycemic sweeteners for four years now. During this period I have tried every kind of low-glycemic, non-candida feeding sugar there is. Lakanto is better tasting than any of them and it does not have the unwanted side effects of sweeteners like Xylitol. Also it is perfect for baking. Regular Erythritol is pretty good but Lakanto is even better. Lakanto has kept me away from tempting sugary treats many times! I highly recommend it!!! I love making lemonade with sparkling water, lemon juice and Lakanto. (Posted on 7/12/2011)
5.0 Fantastic. by Yummy
Works great in coffee and doesn't taste bitter like other sweeteners in hot drinks. (Posted on 7/12/2011)
5.0 Best substitute for baking I have found. by katrae
I have tried many sugar substitutes. I love Stevia for everything except baked food, and for that Lakanto is the best. I make some delicious sugar free desserts with this great tasting sweetner. LOVE IT! (Posted on 7/12/2011)
5.0 Fantastic! by Purpcwgrl
This is a great alternative to sugar. I use it to sweeten my iced tea. And I don't feel guilty about using it. Though I do wish it was cheaper. (Posted on 7/12/2011)
4.0 Great tasting by Kelly
I enjoy baking with this and knowing that I'm not giving my family sugar and they're loving it. It is priced a bit high though (Posted on 7/12/2011)
4.0 Lakanto Newby by R. L.
This was my first time trying Lakanto and, for the most part, I really liked it. While pricey, it does a nice job substituting for the flavor brown sugar, particularly in baked goods. My one complaint is that it does not dissolve well in cold liquids. At least that is my experience. Because of it's price, I use sparingly, but will purchase again. (Posted on 7/12/2011)
5.0 Lakanto by Anne
This is an amazing product and I would recommend it. The only problem with this product is it is very expensive. (Posted on 7/12/2011)
5.0 This product is fabulous! by Liz
I was desperate to get off of sugar and chemical sugar substitutes, and my health care provider suggested Lakanto -- and then let me taste it! Wow! I have not baked with it (only because I don't bake), but I use it DAILY in my coffee and tea. It tastes wonderful, and rewards a dash of cinnamon as well. I only wish the price were lower, but I can say that about many things these days! If you can afford it, it's absolutely worth it, and wonderful! I will continue to purchase it regularly. (Posted on 7/12/2011)
5.0 Love love love it. by Christine
Been using for years and wouldn't live without it. (Posted on 7/12/2011)

I love Lakanto! I can make pies,cookies, and cakes knowing i am providing tasty sugar free treats for myself, family, and friends. Just wish it was less expensive. (Posted on 7/11/2011)
5.0 Tasty and safe sweetener! by Anna
Lakanto is fantastic, it is one of the only sweeteners we use in my house now. It is fantastic for almost every use including baked goods, and it even tastes great in my morning cup of coffee! (Posted on 7/11/2011)
4.0 Alternative to stevia by AV
I'm not much of a baker but I did make the caramelized onion recipe using lakanto. I'm a huge fan of stevia but it's nice to have this as another option. I am wondering about the GI effects mentioned above... (Posted on 7/11/2011)
5.0 wonderful..... i am sold on this product by ILovetheBeach
I am not a sugar person, but when Lakanto Sweetener was introduced to me I loved it.

I now add a little bit to my coffee and my protein shake in the morning.... yumm-o!!!

Sprinkle a little on your fruit too :)

5.0 It's worth a try!!! by Christa
My family really enjoys the taste. I found it very easy to work with and actually have to use less. the price is a little steep . (Posted on 7/11/2011)
5.0 my new love by Lisa
I love the rich caramel taste lakanto adds to my coffee. I also use it in sauces and dressings...eventually it will replace all the sugar in my home (when the price is lower)! It really tastes so delicious I like it more than sugar!!!! (Posted on 7/11/2011)
5.0 excellent product by josie
The best sugar substitute around . It is excellent with hot beverages. Could never use anything else in my coffee without changing taste of coffee..However, I bit pricey. (Posted on 7/11/2011)
5.0 Sweet Sweetener by Hetty
This is a very high quality sweetener and have been using it for baking and I have had good results. I also use it in my quinoa breakfast porridge as well and it adds just the right amount of sweetness! (Posted on 7/11/2011)
5.0 The greatest sweetner available by LD
This is the greatest sweetner. I had chemical tastes of artificial sweetners. This tastes just like sugar, 0 glycemic, 0 calories, 0 carbs. I use this freely without guilt and without worrying about my health. The answer to "if only there was a good alternative to sugar out there." There is and it is Lakanto! Love it! (Posted on 7/11/2011)

Great substitute for sugar with good taste, but it is way too expensive. (Posted on 7/11/2011)
4.0 response to Ruby by ja
Lo Han can be purched on line but as is it is not suitable for baking. I got mine from Advanced Natural(www.advancednaturals.com)
as I have a wholesale account with that company and still it was very expensive. Global Sweets carries the alcohol sugars. I am looking for an alternative sweeter for making jelly. Any suggestions would be appreciated. ja (Posted on 6/26/2011)
5.0 great product by wisewoman7
I love Lakanto. It's the perfect 1:1 sweetener for making homemade sauces and marinades and adding a little sweetening to beverages. the only drawback is the price.
Another time I ordered Lakanto and received complimentary individual sized travel packets- would love to be able to buy these as well! (Posted on 6/26/2011)
2.0 Just another sugar alcohol by Ruby
I ordered and received Lakanto a few weeks ago. Don't love it. It's just o'kay. I noticed that NOWHERE on this website is the percentage of Erythritol listed. It's 99.8%! Only 0.2% Luo. A little misleading to heavily emphasize Luo, while using so darn little. Bottom line, it's just a super expensive sugar alcohol. With all of the accompanying GI side effects. Except that this one claims to be organic, I can't distinguish the difference between this and maltilol. Wish I had done a little more research before I spent almost $40. I'd like to find a resource for pure Luo and try that without the erythritol. Anyone know where I can get a hold of some? (Posted on 5/19/2011)
5.0 can't get by without it! by chicago mom
This has helped keep peace in our house. I gradually phased out sugar by combining it with Lakanto and now my kids are happy with the cookies I bake using lakanto and no sugar. I add it to marinades to make sauces as tasty as they were before we gave up sugar. (Posted on 5/19/2011)
4.0 works great for baked goods by Melissa
We really like Lakanto. It works, just as they say, to substitute sugar in baked goods. We found it does not work so well in anything where it should melt, because it does not melt, no matter how long you boil it and cook it. An example is hot chocolate. Just as a response to another review, I quote from the description of the product, "Lakanto is made by fermentation while the other sugar alcohols are made from hydrogenation." It is NOT the same as malitol because of the fermentation. And because of the fermentation, it should not cause the GI side effects. We have never noticed any effects in our family of seven. It would be nice if the website included the product labels, like it did before the site changed. Then people like the above reviewer would be able to see the facts before they buy.
