With all the substitute sweeteners in the world, my favorite is sweet nectar agave. It is an organic sweetener syrup that melts in the mouth. I buy my sweet nectar agave at the health food stores or I order it online. There is no bitter after taste and it is sweeter than sugar plus its good for diabetics with type 1. The sweet nectar agave is a cactus-like plant from Mexico and the nectar is taken from the core. There is nothing, but all natural ingredients and it doesn't contain eggs, fish, milk, soy, and wheat.
