I love sugar but don’t love the carbs and calories so when I saw this Volupta brand sweetener at Costco during a recent trip I decided to pick it up to try and review here today!

I have previously reviewed the Costco Lakanto Sweetener which is a product that Costco shoppers seem to really love. If you’re looking to try a different kind of sugar other than cane or beet sugar, check out my review for Costco Big Tree Organic Coconut Sugar.

Location in Store

The Costco Volupta Sweetener can be found in the aisle with the other sugars and baking supplies. The item number is 1567842.

Taste

Firstly, this sweetener is about the same sweetness as regular table sugar. I tried it alone and also tried it in some baking I did. It really tastes like regular sugar to me! Unlike other sweeteners, I didn’t notice any bitterness or chemical aftertaste.

The sweetener is similar texture to regular table sugar.

What I love about this sweetener is that it’s not intensely sweet either, like other sweeteners I’ve tried. For example, I find Splenda very sweet.

Cost

The cost is $10.99 Canadian for the 907 gram bag of sweetener. Which is obviously more than regular white table sugar.

Zero calorie natural sweetener from Costco.

Convenience

The Costco erythritol & monk fruit sweetener can be used as a 1:1 sugar replacement. You can use it to bake or add it to your tea or coffee. I like to use it to make granola.

The best before date on the bag of Costco Volupta Sweetener is over a year and a half from when I purchased it and the bag reseals. The bag recommends storing the sweetener in a cool, dry, place, away from sunlight. Lastly, because the sweetener tastes like sugar and is a 1:1 substitute I think you can easily sneak this into your baking without anyone noticing too much!

Why might erythritol and monkfruit sweetener a healthy option?

Monk fruit sweetener is made from dried fruit extract so it’s natural but it’s much sweeter than regular sugar. 200-300 times sweeter! Erythritol is a sugar alcohol. Both monk fruit and erythritol don’t impact blood sugar levels like regular sugar does. This makes it a great option for diabetics.

It also makes it a great option for those trying to avoid sugar spikes or watching their carbohydrate and calorie intake. Some people report gastrointestinal side effects from consuming sweeteners, so if this is you, you might want to be aware of that.

  2. I have use erythritol/monkfruit sweetener for several years now and this brand tastes as good as other brands I have tried. The Costco price is quite good compared to other sources I have bought from. The erythritol does have a cool like taste kind of like the cool of mint does but without the mint flavour.
    When I use it to make Keto ice cream it gets pretty hard in the freezer after a couple of days.
    Allulose another 0 calorie rare sugar substitute works even better however it’s even more expensive and often hard to find.

  3. I have used this kind of sweetener in baking thinks like banana nut bread. I usually only sub out half the sugar for this to cut calories. No big difference in taste but I did notice the bread baked a tad quicker so warning to check baked goods dinner than the min bake time so it doesn’t over bake. My bread usually takes like 65-75 min a loaf, with this it’s more like 55-60 min.
