    I found this post from back in May:

    "Be careful with the Five Spice powder as it often contains sugar. I believe that some people have had success in mixing up their own versions - try some ground star anise, cinnamon, etc and I bet that you could come up with a lovely, much more Dukan-friendly version."

    I've never looked at the ingredients of the shop bought one though

    The Schwartz Five-Spice blend contains a lot of sugar - I think it is the main ingredient, unfortunately!
