Sweeteners are a matter of personal preference. The spectrum of opinions on this topic range from “anything is better than sugar” to “you should never eat anything sweet again”. I fall more in the middle. I think a little sweet here and there can be beneficial if it keeps you on course. Keeping that in mind, I do have my favorites and not-so-favorites. Sugar alcohols tend to fall in the latter category, although I realize some are worse than others.
