The DiabetiSweet is a great product. It has good body, tastes great, and cooks very well. You can even make candies with it. But it does have a problem. It is made from one of the sugar-alcohols. And the prolem with sugar alcohols is that if you over indulge, well let's just say that I hope your toilet seat is comfortable, as you will be spending more time there than you may want.

Yep, you guessed it. Sugar alcohols have a strong laxative effect. If used in moderation, they are great. Just Keep that in mind.

Goodweed - thanks for more details on the DiabetiSweet. Doing low carb, I know all about the pitfalls of sugar alcohols . But I'd rather have those than sachrine! (sp?) I'll have to watch for it in my local stores.

Thanks again everyone! I'll have to check in more often here! You guys are GREAT!!!!

You know... Im really not even used to sweet bbq sauce. My granmas which was the first and best I had used LOTS of lime in it instead of sugar giving it a really nice aroma and flavor.
My english, she's not so good... I meant to say I did it with the malice of forethought.
