Deborah writes: Sweet N Low is legal, in spite of the tiny quantities of dextrose and cream of tartar, because it's the most easily found form of saccharine. But if you can find Necta Sweet or liquid Sweet N Low, you'll avoid those substances. CVS has always carried Necta Sweet. I'm sure they can order it for you. Liquid Sweet N Low is not ideal, as it's preserved with methyl paraben. We are all exposed to so many chemicals (pesticides, some plastics and more) that are estrogenic in their effect - it's not a good idea to voluntarily consume more.

Necta Sweet is really the best form of saccharine available in the States, but it's hard to find and slightly less convenient than Sweet N Low. I believe there's also a brand of saccharine in Canada that doesn't have the illegals (ed. Hermesetas). But if you can't find Necta Sweet, I wouldn't worry too much about using Sweet N Low..... For those of us who can't tolerate honey, Sweet N Low has been very helpful.

Through the (SCD) Specific Carbohydrate Diet, explained in this book, our son was able to get off medication and thrive. He healed himself and was able to go away to college. Last month he had a relapse, had surgery and by going back on the diet he was able to put himself in remission. The doctors are amazed with his latest tests and told him he did not need medication, but he must stick to the diet. I have bought over a dozen of these books and shared them with doctors, family members, and friends. I strongly recommend this book for any IBD/IBS issues.
