    My partner is starting a low carb diet and we were wondering about sweeteners? Do they count as a carb?

    Cheers

    I use Splenda, it does have carb content, but not alot. I think it's about 0.5g carbs per tsp (IIRC)

    In line with everyone else it does depend on the sweetener. Check the carb content. Tablet ones are OK I think.

    have you tried the extract or the pure stuff? i bought the pure stuff and its rancid!! gunna stick with splenda

    on another note, most low carb diets advise to avoid aspartame based sweeteners so splenda is the best to go for

    I have ordered some Stevia from iHerb.com - Vitamins, Supplements & Natural Health Products if you place an order, quote VEB798 and you will get $5, off your first order.
