This is an all-natural, super simple sugar-free formula to make at home.
|IMO powder - A fabulous sugar substitute.|
We like to make our own Sugar-Free sweeteners. We make several intense sweetener blends, bulking sugar blends and several mixtures combining both bulk sweeteners with added intense sweeteners. We make many different formulas for different applications. It gets complicated, but we love it.
We already have posted some sweetener blends on this blog that you can make yourself:
Stevia Glycerite (Now brand Copy-Cat)
Low-Carb Vanilla Sugar
Low-Carb Brown Sugar
Low -Carb Pancake Syrup #1
We love IMO powder and (IMO Syrup). We also love erythritol, and xylitol. We love using stevioside (stevia), although not usually alone. We also love monk fruit extract and citrus extract. There are more, but most of them are not available to the public. We would LOVE to introduce them to you, maybe with time, we will be able to be a source for you.
Make a small batch of sweetener at first and then try sweetening mild herbal tea with it or try it in a smoothie. It's easy to adjust. Its easier to add more IMO that it is to reduce the amount of stevia, obviously.
Look online for IMO powder, monk fruit extract, and pure, white stevioside extract.
Sweet Perfection contains:
99 % Oligofructose from chicory root fiber (a prebiotic fiber that doesn't increase blood sugar)
1 % Organic stevia
Serving size: 1 t. and contains 3 calories and 3 g fiber.
Each 20-ounce bag costs $22.95 and contains 3 cups.
To duplicate this I use:
99% IMO powder (like VitaFiber from http://www.bioneutra.ca/faq.htm)
1% 95 to 98% pure stevioside powder (without maltodextrin or other bulking fillers)
Mix ingredients together Very well. Putting in a blender on very low speed works great.
Store air-tight and use as you would sugar.
A newer Sweet Perfection formula contains:
99.5% Oligofructose from chicory root fiber
To duplicate this I would try:
99.5% IMO powder
0.5% Combined intense sweeteners:
0.3% 95% to 98% pure stevioside powder
0.2% Lo Han Guo (monk fruit) concentrate powder
Premix your intense sweeteners.
Dilute a tiny amount in water and see if you like the ratio of stevia to monk fruit. Adjust as desired.
Mix VERY well with the IMO powder.
Note: IMO stands for isomalto-oligosaccharide
