Something that cannot be added to liquids..that normally can...makes me wonder just what the heck they did to the sugar molecule to change it.
If you had read how they've made it, you might understand why it wouldn't work in liquids..
“It is sugar, but it is assembled differently so it can disassemble easily in your mouth with less going into your gastrointestinal tract,”
Dr. Catsicas compared a normal crystal of sugar to a shoe box, where the box is made of sugar and everything inside it is also made of sugar. The new sugar, he said, will be processed to have the same sugar exterior — though it may be a globe instead of a box — to dissolve in the mouth.
“It is sugar, but it is assembled differently so it can disassemble easily in your mouth with less going into your gastrointestinal tract,” said Dr. Stefan Catsicas, the company’s chief technology officer.
In January of 1981 Donald Rumsfeld, CEO of Searle, stated in a sales meeting that he was going to “call in his markers” and make a push to get aspartame approved. That month Ronald Reagan was sworn in as President of the United States. His transition team included Rumsfeld who hand picked Dr. Arthur Hull Hayes Jr. to be the new FDA Commissioner.

I wonder if the sugar is getting processed through lead pipes. Small amounts of lead can trick the mouth into thinking it had something sweet when in fact it had lead. Saying that it's a redesigned sugar molecule doesn't really make much sense since they would have to change the way sugar crystals grow, or have something inside the crystal matrix tat prevents a solid crystal from forming (possibly by using lead)
OK, OK why I'm I saying lead so much? Didn't nestle just get rights to the water up in Michigan? Specifically water that may or may not be contaminated by ....lead? I think they (nestle) needs to explain themselves a little bit better as to this process of redesigning sugar.

Did they get it, last I heard they are renegotiation the licensing fee, they want 100,000,000 gals of their raw material from the state of Mich for $200.

Usually these fake sugars turn out to be worse for you the the good old fashioned full fat version
