Which is better for cooking to replace sugar? Powdered Splenda or Liquid Splenda? I see on Amazon that Liquid Splenda is much more expensive than powdered.
Al I know is that one cup of powdered Splenda is equivalent to one cup of sugar when it comes to baking. I didn’t even know they made a liquid Splenda.
Cooking with Splenda
I thought for a sec this was a Norwegian TV culinary show.
Both are gross, one is just a more expensive gross.
The powdered stuff says it is same cup per cup as sugar but when i used to use it i found it much sweeter. I would use half to three quarter cup
I don’t know about other forms of cooking, but when baking with Splenda I always use 50% Splenda with 50% sugar…it helps the texture of the baked goods. That’s the powdered version.
U could use swerve. That’s not an artificial sweetener but a natural one.
It’s good for baking too
Honestly I would use sugar even though I’m diabetic.
I don’t trust artificial sweeteners especially for cooking or baking
I use monkfruit sweetner… no weird after taste… the brown one
I just tried it another brand. It has the closest taste to sugar, better than Splenda. It reminds me of the taste of honey. At first I didn’t read the package where it says its equal to sugar in sweetness but then realized that I need to put a lot more than the amount of Splenda to get the same sweetness. Since its 0 calories I didn’t care about the amount. I am now using it for tea whereas Splenda tasted weird in tea. Spelnda was fine with coffee but not tea. It says bakes and measures like sugar.
I think thats good too and similar to Monkfruit since both are made of Erythritol.
Sugar has 4 calories per gram, but erythritol has zero . That’s because your small intestine absorbs it quickly and gets it out of your body through urine within 24 hours. This means erythritol doesn’t have a chance to “metabolize” – turn into energy in your body.
Yes it is good and has no weird after taste. When I did keto I tried splenda and it was gross and this guy on youtube recommended the monk fruit and i have been using it since… the golden one, you don’t have to use much, but with the white one, you use end up using a lot more… so I always get the golden one… glad you liked it.
Yes you can use it to bake too
