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.

The book should be required reading for anyone with Crohn's disease and we wish gastroenterologists would read it as well. The diet is a real alternative to the drug based therapy from the medical community.
