Sale on Swerve Sweetener!


Good Morning! In my normal weekly newsletter from Netrition I saw they have Swerve Sweetener on sale this week and wanted to pass along a 'heads up' to those pricing it. I have paid up to $13.99 for this particular product, so the savings is pretty good.

at Netrition this week is only $8.99 for a 1 lb. package of either style, granular or confectioner's.


Swerve is a natural sweetener that measures cup-for-cup just like sugar. Made from a unique combination of ingredients derived from fruits and vegetables, Swerve contains no artificial ingredients, preservatives or flavors.


• ZERO CALORIES
• NON-GLYCEMIC
• NATURAL
• NON-GMO


As a replacement for sugar, Swerve is zero-calorie, non-glycemic and safe for those living with diabetes. Human tests have shown Swerve does not affect blood glucose or insulin levels.

Swerve has no bitter aftertaste associated with other natural sweeteners like stevia. And unlike other sugar alcohols such as xylitol, sorbitol and maltitol there is no digestive intolerance (no laxative effect).


The secret to Swerve's zero calorie sweetness is a combination of erythritol and oligosaccharides* that provide excellent baking and cooking functionality. And with the ability to brown and caramelize, Swerve is gonna be right at home in your kitchen. There are no conversion charts needed when baking and cooking with Swerve. If your recipe calls for half a cup of sugar… you simply replace it with a half a cup of Swerve!




Because I shop online from many sources online, I did a quick check for Amazon pricing and as of this morning it's currently running about $13.19 for the same 1 lb. package.


$13.19 at Amazon as of this morning and another source I buy product at, Swanson, is $10.59.










*Erythritol is made by fermenting glucose with Moniliella pollinis (a natural microorganism found in honeycomb) which breaks down the glucose and yields erythritol. Erythritol also naturally occurs in many fruits and vegetables like melons, grapes, asparagus as well as fermented foods. It is classified by the FDA as a zero calorie, 4-carbon sugar alcohol that does not affect blood glucose. It is easy on the digestive system and does not cause gastric distress associated with other sugar alcohols.

Oligosaccharides are sweet, non-digestible carbohydrates extracted from fruit and vegetable sources. They are similar to fiber and can help stimulate beneficial bacteria in the large intestine.

The natural flavors in Swerve are derived from food sources. For those concerned about MSG being labeled as a natural flavor, you can be assured that MSG is not contained in Swerve.
