Just Like Sugar – Table Top Sweetener

Search for recipes that use “Just Like Sugar Table Top Sweetener”

Just Like Sugar Table Top is my favorite natural sweetener, made from chicory root. It is a zero-calorie, zero-carb granulated sweetener that you can enjoy with no blood sugar rush or insulin response. After testing hundreds of sweeteners I use this because it dissolves easily, it tastes delicious and is easy to measure cup for cup—like table sugar.  It gently sweetens everything, and I get no glycemic rush or aftertaste from it. The Table Top version gives the best sweet flavor and texture in desserts. It is also great for coffee or tea. I am not paid or endorsed by Just Like Sugar in any way – I just love their product. Order Just Like Sugar Table Top Sweetener here. 

Just Like Sugar Table Top is a blend of crystal chicory root that is 96% dietary fiber, mixed with calcium and vitamin C. Its sweetness comes from orange peel. Chicory root is high in sweet carbohydrate dietary fiber called inulin (IN-you-lin) not to be confused with insulin. Because of the structure of the inulin molecule, it is not digested in the human body, and does not metabolize as a carbohydrate. This means effectively that although it tastes sweet, it does not affect blood sugar levels, and it does not cause weight gain.

The health benefits of Just Like Sugar are unique among sweeteners:
1. Just Like Sugar is high in chicory root dietary fiber. Clinical research shows that a diet high in dietary fiber greatly benefits digestive functions.
2. Nutritional facts per the manufacturer’s label: A 100 gram serving contains 0 calories, 0 Sugar, 0 Fat, 0 Cholesterol, 0 Sodium, 0 Net Impact Carbohydrates and 0 Protein.
3. Just Like Sugar is not fermentable and will not promote tooth decay.
4. Just Like Sugar acts as a prebiotic in the body, meaning it helps to stimulate the growth and activity of healthy digestive bacteria.
5. Chicory root is often used to control blood sugar levels. It can be used to help stabilize the body blood sugar levels for diabetics and non diabetics alike
6. It is gluten-free, wheat-free, dairy-free and vegan safe. It does not contain soy, yeast, animal derivatives or preservatives.

You may experiment with other sweeteners in my recipes. Do this at your own risk of course. However I can tell you that any sweetener measured cup for cup like sugar should work just fine. You might miss out on the low-carb benefits of chicory root, but you’ll have a delicious dessert.

Buy it online from JustLikeSugarInc.com, or Netrition.com. Make sure you ask for the Table Top version in the one-pound green bag for my recipes, not the Baking, because it is measured differently. I love Just Like Sugar and I think you will too.

Note: The sweeteners I recommend are suitable for the vast majority of people, including most people with gluten intolerance, celiac disease and diabetes. However every person’s digestion is unique, therefore they may not be suitable for everyone. A few people suffering from IBS may not tolerate chicory root fiber. Before starting any new diet, please check with your medical practitioner.

    I like your recipes. But I’m almost out of “Just Like Sugar” and since the company went bankrupt I can’t buy more. Is there another brand that is similar that I could purchase somewhere?

      So sorry, Kelly, The JLS President my friend Mike Sylver doesn’t answer my calls or respond to emails. My intuitive sense is that he’s waiting out the world situation and may come back. Who knows? For the moment better use a different sweetener. I’m in Bali so we don’t have alternative sweeteners. I just skip all sugar and flour, and I’m fine!

    I just tried to access their website and was unsuccessful. Is ‘Just Like Sugar’ still in business?

      Hi Pam, Thanks for your question. I don’t know. Let’s wait and see. Like so many other things it’s not clear. Check the many other comments on this page for link to other non-glycemic, non-fructose sweeteners. Or look for SWEETENERS on my navigation. You’ll find some good suggestions. Best wishes! Jane

    Please help me understand.
    If I am understanding correctly, the “Just Like Sugar – Table Top Sweetener” is also a processed product like you are saying stevia is. Why is this product any better for our bodies? I am new to all this and trying to understand what is safe and why.

      Hi Johanna, thanks for your comment. Just Like Sugar is chicory root inulin, orange peel, and calcium, grown without chemicals. Stevia is also a natural plant, grown with chemicals. More importantly, but because of its strong aftertaste, it is processed with toxic chemicals, which are not removed. The choice is yours.

    loved reading your website and information…but, I have been searching for a tonic water that does not have very high sugar and added sugars…so disappointed the zevia tonic water also will not be a good choice.
