Swerve® vs. LC Foods®: A Sweet Comparison

One of the best ways to lose weight and maintain a healthy sugar level is to use all-natural sweeteners, rather than refined sugar or artificial sweeteners. Refined sugar can be very dangerous to your health as it contributes to obesity and puts you at great risk of diabetes.


Spoonfull of sugarNatural sweeteners, whether made from plants or sugar canes have a number of nutritional benefits and have grown in popularity among the health conscious masses. However, Agave, Honey, and Maple Syrup can still cause blood sugar levels to rise which are dangerous for diabetes sufferers.

This need for an all-natural and safer sweetener has paved the way for the development of two sweetener brands: Swerve and LC White Sugar Sweetener. If you are feeling a little confused as to which of the two brands to use, a closer look at both Swerve and LC Natural Sweetener can help you make up your mind.


Swerve-Sweetener-Granular-Gluten-Free-852700300115One of the positive characteristics of Swerve is you can measure it cup-for-cup, like you would with any other type of sugar. Swerve contains Erythritol, which is made from a combination of vegetable and fruit-based ingredients. This gives it a less sweet taste than your average refined sugar. Swerve also does not contain preservatives or artificial flavors.

Swerve also does not have any bitter aftertaste that is associated with other natural sweeteners such as Stevia. Swerve also does not cause digestive intolerance among users unlike other types of sugar alcohols such as Sorbitol or Xylitol.

Swerve however, cannot be used for baking because it contains Erythritol, that kills yeast which is necessary to make breads or cakes rise. It is available in white sugar version, and costs $10.99 per one pound bag.


Swerve’s ability to caramelize and brown makes it useful for recipes that require sugar. Plus, there is no conversation charts needed when using Swerve. If your recipe calls for half a cup of sugar, then you will use half a cup of Swerve!
