That is an intersting article. As you say, I don’t know how trustworthy the source is. I can easily see several science errors. I think most of the conclusions are horse-hockey.

It isn’t good for bars cause it doesn’t pour fast or mix as easily as 1 to 1, but we don’t care about that and would rather dilute the product ourselves instead of with syrup. The syrup we had for the test looked closer to 1 to 1 than our normal stuff. Anyway, we used the refractometer to adjust the two products to equal sweetness.

We may have ended up with margaritas (with simple) on the bubble.
