Steel's Gourmet Condiments are my Favorite of all the low carb varieties. The Ketchup is so Outstanding I would use it even if I was not on a low carb diet. The Peanut Sauce is the best condiment for cooking I have ever used, yet I no longer see it on the list here at Netrition. Hopefully it has not been discontinued. This company took a breather for one reason or another and appears to be back in the game now. I am really happy about that!! These Condiments are Exceptional!!

This has to do with the Rocky Mountain Chipoltle BBQ. What happened to this sauce? It was the best. I ordered it all the time, and used it on everything from chicken to hamburgers to fish. I was so disappointed when you no longer offered it.
I highly recommend the spiced cranberry. I was very happy with the versatility of this product. I first used it Thanksgiving to go with the turkey, big hit! It is also great for glazing, ham, turkey, pork loin, chicken- had it today glazed on a pork loin, with sweet potatoes and spinach on the side, AWESOME! Nobody knows its a sugar free glaze. I pass off all of Steel's condiments and salad dressings! Nobody knows they're sugar free!

I wish I could agree with the glowing reviews, but when it comes to the ketchup I won't be buying it again. It's way too sweet. Ketchup should have a little sweetness, but it shouldn't be the dominant flavor. It's absolutely overpowering here.

Frostings made from the powdered taste just like regular powdered sugar recipes. I use a mix of the crystals and/or syrup with other sweeteners to enhance the sweetness and browning in baked goods. Just as good as sugar. You won't be able to tell the difference between Steel's syrup and corn syrup in recipes. All of these can be used in making fudge and candies. But these products make great tasting TREATS; they have enforced portion control built in and are not to be used to pig-out/cheat/fall off the wagon with--unless you enjoy some big intestinal discomfort.
The only salad dressing that I have tried is the Sesame-Ginger, and I was very impressed. I mixed it with Steel's Spicy Peanut Condiment Sauce which is very close to my local chinese restaurant's blend of sesame sauce/spicy peanut sauce. I place the blended sauces on chicken and/or low-carb pasta with some diced scallions. Of course you could just put it on salad. You will never know its low-carb/low sugar. Highly recommend.
I was impressed with the "honey" flavor, especially if you like something to dunk your chicken in, this is a great treat, without sugar! Yet, it tastes sweet and savory. Almost too good to be true. Thanks Steele's.

These cook/bake/caramelize just like regular sugar. I make caramel, candy, cookies, and add them to whatever I want. The powdered is just like powdered, syrup just like corn syrup, crystals act like cane sugar etc. You just have to remember what maltitol does and be careful with who you feed it to :). These are perfect for low-carb cooking when Splenda does not give you the result you want.
Steel's sweeteners are all excellent. I make everything from cakes to candies to cookies with outstanding results. There is no aftertaste or bitter taste with any of the sweeteners, and recipes do not have to be altered in any way to accommodate any of the sweeteners.

I have tried many watery, tasteless sugar-free maple syrups. Can you tell I was not impressed. When surfing through low carb options on the Netrition website, I read all the 5 star reviews for Steel's maple flavored syrup and decided to give it a try. Am I thankful that I did! It has a wonderful flavor, sweetness, and consistency. Please add my review to all the other glowing responses for such a wonderful product.

Thank you Netrition for bringing back the Steel's Gourmet products! The maple syrup is absolutely, hands-down, THE BEST I've tried. I am a type 1 diabetic on a low carb diet and have tried all the others - this one tastes real!
Yup, another diabetic reviewer. This stuff is GREAT! It is better than most regular syrups I've ever used. I'm impressed. It's so thick that it stays on top of my pancakes and it really has a very rich maple flavor. What more can you ask for? You won't be disappointed, my wife is not a diabetic and she absolutely loves it!
I actually give this product a score 100+. I discovered Steel's Gourment Sugar-Free Maple Syrup by accident. I have diabetes and this product was suggested by a shopper at another nutrition store in our area and by chance he was using it, but didn't have diabetes. The customer described it as one of those southern like thick maple syrups, and I decided to try it and was blown away. It is the best sugar free syrup I've ever had, and if anyone is like me, when you find something you like you buy lots of it, well unfortunately when I went back, the store didn't carry it anymore and for over a year I've searched high and low and now here I am. My search is over. I will continue to order and tell all my friends and family. I've been a diabetic over thirty years and I have yet to find anything that has even come close. This is really the best and if anyone has found anything better, please let the entire world know.
