I am always trying to use less sweeteners than recommended on the occasions that I bake.
Very surprising to find that 1 tsp. of the glycerine has 22 calories and the agave has only 20.
Now I get the glycerin as a diamond in my SWAMI and the agave as a super beneficials.

But, I believe that the glycerin metabolizes quite differently in the body and that the liver is not affected. Anyone have any thoughts about this? Thanks.

I don t count calories......

glycerine has been my sweetener of choice

then comes molasses and right behind comes agave


make sure nothing is added and your sources are pure

I am however needing less and less as I get older....

sometimes I simply forget to add a dab of glycerine in my tea......freedom!!!! ha
