    The reviews on the Swanson website weren't very positive. I'll stick
    with 100% pure sucralose.

    Some "no calorie" sweeteners cause insulin reaction just like sugar.
    Does this one?

    I've had the fruit, dried. It is sweet,
    but it has a horrible woody aftertaste.

    I don't know. I do know it has very minimal carbs, low enough to get a zero
    carb rating. And if you read the propaganda it says the carbs come from
    sugar and molasses IIRC. The monk fruit somehow converts or naturally is a
    sugar alcohol. But they claim it does not cause gastric distress the way
    other sugar alcohols do in some people. It sorta looks like a stevia style
    near-zero carb sweetener... a naturally sweet ingredient modified chemically
    to create a usable granular form.

    Well, you REALLY need to know what's REALLY in this stuff..

    I ALWAYS get suspicious when the majority of search hits
    for a product bring up sponsored links, or clearly shill
    sites with great reviews, but searching deeper gets the
    disputed parts.

    Are are you saying it's a shill site? It's not. Look at the main and the
    seven pages of various health and diet information on a wide range of
    subjects. Doesn't look like any shill site I can recall. Way too diverse.
    Shill sites stay on message, and only one message, and everything leads back
    to that message.
