Sugar free sweet is like there would be sweet taste in its made sweet products but it is not a natural one.

Sugar free products do contain fructose and few other chemicals to get rid of the sugar content. However despite lack of that it can maintain the taste. So it all depends on how you include that into diet. Some of the dietitians don't recommend eating too much of sugar free content or capsule. Those may not be healthy enough for the diabetic people either. It has to be consumed in the proportion. This way you can easily limit how much intake of such sugar free gets in your diet. Most of the doctors recommend this in proportion.
