Swerve Trumpet – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans

If you’re like most Americans, and an even greater percentage of New Orleanians, you’ve got concerns about your weight.

One of the contributors to issues with our weight, and health, is sugar. But sugar-free products don’t taste all that great. And substituting sugar with synthetic chemicals is not a popular solution.

Believe it or not, there is a product that is a real sugar substitute. It’s all natural. And it has zero calories. It’s called Swerve. It’s gaining popularity across the country. And it comes from right here in New Orleans.
