I first tried Erythritol in individual packets, made for tea/coffee. I found the whole pakets too sweet, for my tastes. Buying it in bulk, granulated form, like this, makes it easy to control how little I want to use. Erythritol is a natural sweetener, similar to xylitol, so I have no qualms about using it in moderation. It's a great product if you're trying to control your sugar consumption.
