Thought asking this question here was a good idea, as many veggie-people use these.
Is there a taste difference, and if so, what? Do you have a preference?
I've read that Swerve' is made from Erythritol, but since you can buy both, it has
me wondering if there is a difference.
Thanks to all who respond

I hadn't know what either thing is, but looks like they're chemicals. Why not use Stevia? It's a plant and safe. It tastes great.

Stevia does not taste great (to me) It has a horrible after taste that makes me want to spit it out.

And Swerve & Erythritol are made from fruit derivatives, so is not a 'chemical.'

I've never heard of these, either. I rarely sweeten anything, but if I do, I just use sugar.

Same here. Sometimes honey in tea, but that's not an option for a vegan.

The Spice & Tea Exchange (chain/franchise shop) has flavored sugars. I have a coconut one and a peppermint one I use occasionally.

Stevia has a nasty aftertaste. Blech.

If I buy sugar at all, it's usually to make hummingbird food! I never bake and never add sugar to anything...wait, I did use a bit in sushi rice the other day. But it's not often. I don't drink coffee, and tea is not sweetened.

I have never had Stevia, but since it is sweeter than sugar, I have no use for it.

I use none in coffee, but I like my tea sweetened. I'm not a baker, either.

I also bought a packet of onion sugar, but I am not sure what to use it on. I asked my daughter what she thought, and she laughed and said, "Ham is what comes to mind." She is vegan.

Can you read a label? Then you'll know what it's made from.

Swerve is the brand.

Erythritol is the sweetener ingredient.

So Swerve is a brand of erythritol, similar to Hormel is a brand of sausage.
