My Pyure Review

    I'm not a huge sugar user. I am, however, a HUGE chemical user. Not the pink stuff, (ick!) but I abuse the yellow and the blue like crazy. I've known for a while that I should cut out the artificial chemicals, but I just wasn't willing to consume the calories that sugar would add. (Bad, bad Jill) So I was really excited to try out Pyure. 

    My thoughts... 

    In my iced tea: Totally switchable. The taste of one packet was pretty much the same as two Splenda or two Equal. My tongue did feel a tad tingly at first - not bad exactly, and really subtle. I couldn't taste any difference at all and got used the feeling. It sounds worse than it was - similar to what happens when I eat pineapple for some reason. 

    In coffee: Same as above. Two super easy switches for me and I like that I can use less than I'm used to.

    Baking: I tried a few things... 

    Chocolate chip cookies: Um, hello mixer gone wild. I should have been smart enough not to mix on high with the Pyure on top. I wasn't. Whoops. It was easy enough to make the cooking adjustments and my kids could taste no difference at all. I could taste a tiny difference in the texture, but nothing to prevent me from using it going forward. Totally passed the taste test.

    Jeff likes things sweet - tomato sauce, chicken, meat... the sweeter the better for him. So, anytime I would have used a dash of sugar, I used Pyure instead and didn't tell him. He never knew the difference, so husband test passed! 

    The only thing that wasn't quite the same is a noodle kugel I make. (For the non-Jews, this is what it is: http://www.scarymommy.com/the-best-kugel-recipe)

    It uses a boatload of sugar, so I was anxious to try out Pyure instead. I kept the brown sugar and just subbed the white and added the extra egg, but the whole thing was a but mushier than usual. Still tasted good, though. 

    So, really, a complete win from Pyure. I will definitely be buying it going forward! Yay!

    I used a couple of packets in my crockpot tomato sauce tonight! It tasted great when I tried it awhile ago, I'm sure it'll be just as tasty when we hae dinner in a little bit!

    For every loser there's one that has to win. So bite your tongue, grit your teeth and grin...

    Me tooooo with the yellow packet! And this random no name white packet that I don't even know what it is. It was cheap and my mom bought it for me. Prob is some kind of knock off anthrax/rat poisen.

    Oooh I just thought, theres a couple tablespoons in my homemade bread rolls....I already use a light marg in there sometimes, maybe Ill try the pyure too!

    Everyones saying its great in tea, maybe Ill make a batch anyways tomorrow. Better for Dh that that horrible sugar crystal juice he loves.
