    I was just wondering why this recipe has 4 carbs per 1 meringue. It seems to me that this may be wrong. Each ingredient on their own egg whites 1 carb, peppermint extract 0 carbs, cream of tartar 0 carbs, swerve is advertised as zero net carbs. It seems too high. I feel that maybe the correct carbs in 1 peppermint meringue should be 1 carb per 1 inch meringue. I love this sweetener and wonder if it has more carbs that I believe it does. Regular sugar peppermint meringue recipe advertise 6 carbs per 1 inch meringue. Thank you for a response back.

    • Swerve

      Hi Cathy, the net carb count for each meringue is 0g. The main ingredient in Swerve is Erythritol, which is technically considered a carbohydrate and has to be reported as such on a nutrition label. For this reason, the total carb count is 4g, but to find net carbs, you subtract 0g fiber and 4g Swerve to get a net carb count of 0g per serving. Hope this helps! Please let us know if you have any questions!

  • elizabeth

    Is step one correct? Because when I combined it all the egg whites never puffed up.

    • Swerve

      Hi Elizabeth, sorry to hear you had trouble with the recipe! If the egg whites never puffed up, you could try beating only the egg whites with cream of tartar, then adding the Swerve, extract, and salt. Hope this helps!
