sugar is all carbs


that's not what she said; the question is whether burnt sugar is still full of carbs (the answer is yes, but mostly because you're not actually burning the majority of the sugar in a crème brûlée).


you can use xylitol, as suggested. other options include polydextrose (but it isn't sweet and you'll need to incorporate a super sweetener like sucralose) or use something allulose, which is an actual sugar, not a sugar alcohol, and will work pretty much exactly like sugar; you just don't digest it.
