This stuff is STICKY!! It's even more viscous than honey. It IS sweet, but doesn't taste like any other sweetener, and it does add a taste of its own. It's a bit smokey. I love it in ginger tea and coffee, but it isn't like liquid sugar, which only adds sweetness (at least I think that's true...haven't had white sugar in years. Its taste is as strong as dark brown sugar, but it doesn't taste like brown sugar...or maple syrup, either. If you put it in something mild, it might add too much taste. If you put it in something strong tasting, it adds a lovely complexity, like caramelizing might do. If you're cooking carrots and you want to add a slightly complex, sweet and smokey flavor, add just a bit of this nectar, and maybe a little lemon or orange juice and some taragon or rosemary or basil. It's fabulous. I love it in lemonade...it's so exotic. And I love that it has vitamins and minerals. Just don't expect it to taste like sugar.
Just a few drops on a Q-tip works wonders for canker sores, blisters or sore gums. Herbs, Etc. makes wonderful products!
The crystals are amazing. They taste like a combo of brown sugar and maple syrup and something else totally unique. They dissolve in tea or coffee more quickly than brown sugar. I don't get any blood sugar spike when I use them, and I love everything about them. I have not done any baking yet, but I know I won't be disappointed. If they are healthier than brown sugar, honey, or maple syrup, so much the better, because my review is really just for how great they taste.
I ran out of my 1000IU Vitamin D, so I am taking these once a week. They seem to be working well. I can't really tell anything after two weeks of doing this, but I'm always happy with Healthy Origins.
I started taking astaxanthin in addition to my other antioxidants. I am also taking lutein. I've added both into my regimen to protect my eyes. When I see my eye doctor, I will be able to tell if they are helping. So far, my only complaint is that it hasn't helped with my "dry eye", but then, it doesn't say that it is meant to do that.
When you make this with 2-4 oz of water (instead of 8)and you add some milk and your favorite sweetener, it's got a rich, espresso-like flavor, and the cordyceps-reishi mix gives you such a great lift...not like caffeine, but like a refreshing walk outdoors on a perfect sunny day. We are making sure to never run out of this!
This makes one of the best hot chocolate drinks you'll ever taste. Add some milk and your sweetener of choice and...YUM! For an afternoon break, this not only tastes wonderful, but you get such a nice lift...not a buzz...just a sparkle. I never want to be without this product.
