Superb low glycemic sweetener you should try!
 April 28, 2014
"A bottle lasts me 6 months or longer, but I live alone. Will remind you of molasses that is not as thick. It comes from the root of a plant related to the sunflower.
Works great in most ways you would use other sweeteners, but without that 'sugar rush'. I am on my third bottle and just reordered 3 more. Order several when Vitacost has it in stock as it will be out of stock quickly as it seems to be appreciated by consumers. Understandably so.
Remember when you purchase this product you are helping indigenous folks in South America make a living and promote a healthy product. You can find this information listed with the product summary."
