Yesterday I purchased Smuckers all natural reduced fat peanut butter.  Today when I was going to use it I saw that it listed melatdextrin in the ingredients.  Is this a form of sugar?  I have no idea and wanted to know before I use it. 

Sandee writes,  March 06, 2009

Yes, but if it's the 5th ingredient, or lower, it is fine.  However, it probably isn't in peanut butter Smile

What kind of sugar-free drink mixes are safe then? I thought I was drinking sugar free Hawkin punch packets, but the second ingredient is meltadextrin. Aaaahh! I've just found out crystal lite uses meltadextrin also. Are there any sugar free packets to add to my water bottle that is safe???

Malto-dextrin is not a sugar!  It is a process of wheat.  It is used to hold different foods togehter sort of like a glue.  If you are allergic to wheat then you need to steer clear of malto-dextrin.

Well my bad it is a sugar but it is also a wheat derivative.  Any way it is bad news! Sorry for the confusion!! Foot in mouth

Lindsay writes,  November 17, 2009

Thank you beauty4ashes. 

Does anyone know of any sugar free drink packets to add to your water bottles and diet sodas allowed that don't contain sugar under any hidden name?  I just searched through all sugar free drink mixes at Walmart and all of them contain meltadextrin!!!  Also FYI splenda, walmarts generic artificial sweetener, and sweet and low all contain meltadextrin.  The only one that does not that I found was TRUVIA.  Thanks for any help.  I'm curious to know what kinds of beverages you stick with Sandee?

Sandee writes,  November 21, 2009

I drink mostly water or green tea.  Occasionally I'll have a diet pop for a treat.  Stevita brand Stevia has the drink packets like Crystal Light...I found them at vitacost.com.

Thanks for your correction beauty4ashes....are you a Joyce Meyer fan?  I adore her too : )

beauty4ashes writes,  February 07, 2010

Yes, big Joyce Meyer fan.  I had an extremely long period of testing and was led to that scripture to stand upon for years (15 or so) as my promise of brighter days.  He gave me strength for fear and beauty4 ashes!!  What a trade up!!

Thanks for this site, Sandee! We Enjoy the recipes, the encouragement is fantastic!  I visit at least once, twice a day!! Blessings!!

Sandee when you say 5th ingredient or lower for the maltodextrin is that true in as items? One type of triscuits have it listed in the ingredients and it is listed 7th. So is this okay? Also what about powdered cellouse?
Sandee writes,  June 05, 2010

Yes, that's true : )

Randy writes,  June 12, 2010

I see that Splenda is okay - I got the Dr. Gott's diet book and recipe book.  However,when I look at the ingredients on the Splenda box it reads:  Dextrose, Maltodextrin, Sucralose.  I read about the Sucralose being okay, but thought if it listed Dextose or Maltodextrin to put it back on the shelf?   HELP please anyone - Sandee?

Sandee writes,  June 12, 2010

Yes, Dextrose and Maltodextrin are both sugars.  Wow....I don't think that I ever looked at the ingredients until now.  Splenda is a 0 calorie sweetener....maybe that's how it got through.  I do know someone who won't eat it because it gives her a sugar reation.  I personally haven't had an issue with it.  I use it mostly as the sweetener in sugar free syrups and occasionally sugar free pop.  My preferred 0 calorie sweetener is Stevia.

Debra writes,  July 25, 2010

I am totally confused with this maltodextrin stuff. I use NOW french vanilla stevia packets that say "no sugar no gluten" but it has rice maltodextrin listed as an ingredient. I am assuming it is used to keep the stevia from clumping. I live in the tropics and stevia gets hard as a rock and these packets do not clump. It is zero calories. I do not get any kind of reaction from it. I use in morning coffee and in my smoothie. I hope I am not blowing my abstinence.

myjourney writes,  May 16, 2011

Okay I'm still confused. A lot of items I purchased say "Sugar Free" but in the ingredients it says Melatdextrin. So are these items okay or not.

Thanks!

Mary D writes,  January 15, 2012

I tried using stevia, but it didn't sit well with me . . . I became nauseous . . . I am using 4 packets of splenda a day, under the guidance of my CEA-HOW sponosr and having a limit does not trigger the "phenomena of the craving" for me. Thanks for all the information.

I have found that I like Club soda and sugar free peach and mango flavored syrups and I add to a lass of ice and stir it up and it is so wonderful. Yumm!!!!

Vanessa writes,  February 19, 2012

Whoa whoa whoa people! Okay... 

For those who might still be wondering, this is where a sponsor is super helpful! :) Hehe


My sponsor and I were asking other people at our HOW meetings about this, but what is usually added to those artificially sweetened products is safe for diabetics and it's safe for us (in moderation). If we're home eating packets of Sweet N' Low or it's triggering our cravings, we have something we need to talk about with our sponsor - but I was told, if it's not triggering you it is okay. The forms of "sugar" included in products like this will not trigger most people...

Stevia comes under many brands, and in liquid and powder forms, with other ingredients sometimes (fiber/lactose/dextrose, etc), for those interested; it can help even out blood sugar and it's safer (in my opinion) than the chemical sweeteners in gum/soda/etc.I prefer it, I had to get used to how much to use in order to find a balance, it can taste strange or bitter in the wrong amounts.

I DO have sugar-free drinks/syrups sometimes, but I try to limit them because of the chemical nature of the stuff... I don't trust 'em. 

If it's not triggering you, and you're enjoying your abstinence, stay in touch with others and keep trudging the road of happy destiny :) Phew! My two cents went on and on... Funny that we were just freaked out about this recently though... :)

A woman who was in a local group I attend worked at a sweet 'n low factory and said even the smallest amounts start killing you.  That was it for me.  I solely use, and carry around, alcohol-free liquid stevia.  It works great and has effect on my blood sugar.
