I've grown to love the taste of this brand because even though it's called 'unsweetened' that only means that no additional sweeteners are added. In fact, after trying a number of different brands I keep coming back to this one because of both the flavor and the texture.
The apples from which this is made are sweet in their own right. In fact, the ingredients are both natural and simple: apples, water and ascorbic acid. The latter is not some chemical additive - it's vitamin C that is a natural part of an apple.
Even though this is a sauce there is a certain texture that is slightly coarse. This is neither good nor bad, but some folks prefer a much smoother texture and others - like myself - prefer it the way this brand is.
I mentioned that this is perfect for some diets. I use it as a substitute for butter and sometimes cream in many recipes. For example, I will use this over a sweet potato instead of butter, and also will substitute it for cream when I am making rice pudding or similar dishes. The only possible red flag is the carbs which comprise 13 grams per half cup serving. Of those eight grams are from sugar (naturally occurring in apples, of course). Those numbers are nominal and for most folks are very low, but if you need to micromanage carb and sugar intake it's useful to know the numbers. One added plus is a serving contains one hundred percent of the recommended minimum intake of vitamin C.
