Product Review: Swerve Brown

 

In my last post, I reviewed Swerve Sweetener. For details of what this product is exactly and my review on flavor and performance, check here.

As promised, I am reviewing their newest product, Swerve Brown. It is their version of brown sugar.

I won’t rehash all the facts about Swerve, you can check that out in my last post.

I received a free package of Swerve Brown at the GFAF Expo in order to try it and give my opinion.

Ingredients:

erythritol, prebiotic oligosaccharides, vegetable glycerin, fruit juice concentrate (for color) and natural flavors.

 

Brown:

  • looks like brown sugar
  • packs like brown sugar
  • tastes very close to brown sugar
  • it is the equivalent of light brown sugar, not dark brown.

Use it 1 to 1 for brown sugar in a recipe.

Today I tested it in cookie recipes. I made grain-free chocolate chip cookies, as well as gluten-free pfeffernusse.

You can’t tell it isn’t brown sugar. The cookies tasted great.

  • it’s just like brown sugar
  • substitute 1 to 1
