    Has anyone tried cooking/baking with D-ribose? Is heat a problem? I know it goes well in hot coffee or tea.

    Nonchalant, I have not done that and I am not so sure if that is such a good idea. :confused: I only use a recommended serving in my hot chocolate and I imagine that you would definitely use much more then that for your cooking/baking purposes. I try not to over supplement myself.

    I don't understand. So I couldn't add it to a cheesecake? Maybe I should just experiment.

    I have experimented extensively up to 100 grams per day with no ill effects if I keep up the magnesium and CoQ. The GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe) level is 20 grams per day. My wife baked Christmas cakes with it and they are wonderful. I recommend powdering it in a coffee grinder before mixing it in recipes, seems to work better. It is very hydrophilic which means it dissolves very easily in polar solvents such as water and milk. Also seems to mix well with melted chocolate if it is powdered.

    I guess you could - I haven't considered it.

    I've figured out how to make a Frosty - using only HWC, coconut milk, cacao powder, and d-ribose - OMG HEAVEN!!!! and pure FAT!

    Josh, I just put a 2g scoop in a shallow dish and use the back of a spoon to crush any clumps. I have been putting 2-4 g. in DH's tea, coffee, protein shake, applesauce, jello, etc. It has done wonders for his heart. But I had to start slow, it seems that for some the body has to realize that this is good stuff. At first it tastes a bit odd. Now he loves it. He eats way too much sugar, and I think the reason is that he needs more ribose.

    Also, I have taken a large silica freshness packet from another supplement and keep it in with the d-ribose. Much less clumping now.

    Thanks, I'll try it in the cheesecake.

    The cheapest retail I have found is about 80/kg delivered on Amazon. However, you can buy it from the manufacturer wholesale for about 47/kg delivered in 10kg boxes. SOme people do get some intestinal upset as with the sugar alcohols such as xylitol. I did not notice any afdter the first day or two on higher doses.

    I use d-ribose to help eliminate my previous addiction to artificial sweetners. I switched to stevia (limited use) and eliminated splenda completely.

    Well then... I see no reason to limit myself anymore while using d-ribose. :D Thank you everyone for sharing....

    Thanks Tanya .... I have gotten it from there before. What brand do you get?

    I got the LEF powder last time - loved the taste. Other brands seem much cheaper - but would it taste the same?

    Caroline, I buy Healthy Origins. It is non- GMO and I don't feel any taste difference between this brand and the LEF one.
