Nectresse Sweetener Review

 Nectresse, which comes from the maker of Splenda, is a natural no calorie sweetener made of Erythritol, Sugar, Molasses, and the extract of monk fruit. Monk fruit, also called Luo Han Guo, is part of the melon family and has been traditionally grown on steep forested mountains in small family orchards and is named after Buddhist monks who cultivated it over 800 years ago. It is said to be treasured for health giving powers and low calorie sweetness. Nectresse dissolves quick and is made to sweeten coffee, tea, fresh fruit, or really anything that's needing an extra boost of sweetness! Nectresse is sold in canisters made with a multipurpose lid for sprinkling, pouring or spooning and it contains 140 servings. It is also sold in a box that contains 40 packets of Nectresse, and each packet holds the same sweetness of two teaspoons of regular sugar.



I'm not much a fan of Splenda so I figured I wouldn't care for Nectresse either...I was right. It just seems to have a bitter flavor. The first taste is sweet and great, but once it actually settled on my taste buds, if gave me the bitterness. But if you're a person who regularly uses Splenda and enjoys it, I think you would love Nectresse!

You can also use Nectresse in recipes!!
 

You can find Nectresse on Facebook and it is available for purchase at several stores
for the retail price of $6.99 for a 5.9oz container or $3.99 for a box of 40 packets.
