<< tested a drop of my favorite sugar free flavored coffee
 syrup the kind you find in coffee shops on a sure step strip... label says
 0 COH and everything else... strip registered 101!!!!!!  >>
By the time you consume this substance diluted in your coffee and it is
absorbed into your blood stream, then the amount of sugar you actually get may
be very little. Most labels that say sugar free are indicating that they are
sucrose free. Meter stest strips are manufactured to test for substances in
whole blood or serum, therefore the number you get when placing something
other then blood is not useful, except for showing you that there is a sugar
source in the the substance.
