    Just Like Sugar is not, unfortunately, diabetic friendly. It does spike your blood sugar.

    I do like the taste of Just Like Sugar. It has no bitter aftertaste and has caused no gastrointestinal problems. However, I had started to wonder at the spikes in my blood sugar.

    I had been making lemon chess pie, using two cups of Just Like Sugar. The pie crust is the LC pie crust, and has little affect on blood sugar.

    After fasting for two hours I tested my blood sugar: it was 102. I then had a piece of my pie. After an hour, my blood sugar was 164. After 90 minutes it was up to 212, so I then injected some insulin.

    I truly wanted to believe that Just Like Sugar would be beneficial for diabetics, as the company stated. However, at least for me, it is the same as regular sugar.

    Dr. Bernstein had stated in his book that problems like this are to be avoided. I should have heeded his words.

    So far as the product itself: I would give it a '5' for usage, taste, etc. For the affect on my blood sugar, a '0'. Hence, a give a '3'.
