* Advantage sweetener by The Great Nutrition Company

If you have a sweet tooth, you should try ADVANTAGE. This sweetener offered by the Great Nutrition Company is completely sugar free and NOT metabolized by the body. No saccharine nor aspartame.

The sweetening ingredient is Acelsulphame K - normally 200 times sweeter than cane sugar, the formulation is bound with Maltodextrin, which reduces the perception of sweetness to approx 20x. This makes it palatable and usable both for liquids and for cooking and sprinkling on food and beverages. Acelsuphame K is a naturally occurring compound structurally similar to Vitamin B3.

Check out the Advantage Carrot Cake recipe. It will fill that craving for a delicious treat without the negative effects sugar has on your body. Perfect for diabetics and weight losers. Imagine having your carrot cake and eating it too! Click here to read more...

Sometimes you just don’t feel like leaving home to go to your Spanish classes. Or maybe you just don’t have much time to get out and take classes in the first place. Then you may want to consider private one-to-one classes offered by Spanish4fun. Sounds fun, right? Try it. Click here to read more...
