I am really not a sensitive one and hate most sweeteners because of the horrible taste, not because they affect me badly… But maltitol, that affected even me (not very badly, my body is stubborn but I felt strange and I hate that). And it’s not like I eat any sweetener galore so it wasn’t even very much! The sneaky lil thing!
It’s actually odd to read that people use keto bars as staples (multiple ones a day!) and put tons of sweeteners into their cakes… But I suppose if some close to average person suddenly starts keto, it’s like that. I did it more gradually but always ate way less sugar than average and I ate pretty much sweet stuff… The eating of the average human person is scary.
I dislike any chocolate beyond 70% so no way I would eat 90%, I tried, eww. And it’s too sugary and probably too sweet anyway. The maltitol one wasn’t too sweet as maltitol is very very subtly sweet for me, maybe 1/4 of erythritol sweetness.
Even my high-carber SO half-living on sweets and fruits uses less sweet chocolate than a typical 90% one! Maybe the bitterness isn’t the same either but still. Somehow we don’t expect our chocolate to be sweet. We want the cocoa and fat and some nice flavor like coffee…
I have my own unsweetened or barely sweetened almost-chocolate and I am not into it since carnivore, I still taste it sometimes but it’s so easy to live without it. After more than a decade on low-carb :D.
Never could try allulose as we don’t have that here in webshops. But I already have too much bad sweeteners waiting for some chance to be used… Probably not by me.
We never had any problems with xylitol and erythritol but we don’t use them galore as that would make the sweets way too sweet for us.
(Why I feel compelled to comment in every thread about sweeteners I don’t know but I do.)
