I found this product to be exactly what I expected, meaning it was very satisfying. I had read about the health benefits of Lo Han in a medical journal and decided that I should replace my sugar intake with it. I have digestion problems with many sugars in that they don't break done very well in my system. This is not the case with Lo Han. Again, I am very satisfied.

This is NOT Lo Han - the natural alternative to sugar and many times sweeter. Lo Han has many proven health benefits and is delicious - see Trimedica brand. This Jarrow stuff is getting a lot of its power from Xylitol! Xylitol is incredibly sweet and in the great majority of people will trigger intestinal problems (bloating, loose stool etc) and usually comes with gentle warnings on packets. Xylitol is VERY much cheaper than Lo Han and not really the same stuff as mentioned- well noted side effects. Jarrow should be selling true Lo Han - like Trimedica which is cheaper! - and not the diluted product. Shame on Jarrow - normally a great and reliable company, by the way, I buy a ton of supplements off them.

I tried the plain Lo Han(Slimsweet) which I preferred greatly to the Jarrow. The Xylitol in the Jarrow(or something else) gives a very artificial taste to me, like Nutrasweet(aspartame). I'll stick with Slimsweet or check with other products that are Lo Han only.

Takes some getting used to. Went from using 3 packets of splenda to 1 scoop of Lo Han per cup of coffee. No good, had to add 1 packet of splenda to the 1 scoop. Its ok, but not crazy about it. I'll keep using it thou.
