Hi all, I was wondering if anyone is using glycine as a substitute for sweetener in drinks?  Is it safe to use daily?  I want to substitute stevia in my coffee/tea.  Thanks

...wow, I didn't know that glycine could be used as a sweetener.  Why not?

Or, why not even a bit of D-Ribose and glycine?  I don't think that D-Ribose is sweet enough to actually use as a sweetner, but it is very advantageous to supplement with it.

Myself, I do not use a lot of sugar or sweetener.  I drink one cup of rocket fuel coffee in the morning, and I use about 1 tsp. of xylitol.  Xylitol is one of those things (an alcohol, actually) that works excellent in small doses, but very poorly in larger doses.

I used to drink 3 cups of coffee daily, and so I used to use 3 tsp. daily, and had no problems.

I only use sweetener in morning coffee. I have xylitol but have to be very careful as I have a dog, not even a tiny bit can be ingested. The drop or two of stevia offsets the collagen and MCT powder. I researched glycine and its part of the makeup of collagen but collagen is not sweet. I use the Dr within brand. I suppose a little glycine a day can't hurt.
