When you replace sugar with SPLENDA® Granulated Sweetener, it's important to understand the many roles sugar or other sweeteners, such as honey, have in cooking and baking. This knowledge will help you determine which of your favourite recipes can be easily adapted for use with SPLENDA®.
We all know that sugar and other caloric sweeteners, such as honey, brown sugar, and maple syrup add sweetness in recipes, but they can also:
- Give structure, texture and volume.
- Caramelise and add browning.
- Help retain moistness in baked goods.
- Act as a preservative, keeping foods fresh for a longer time.
In general, SPLENDA® works best in recipes where the main role is to provide a sweet taste. For example, SPLENDA® works well in fruit pie fillings, cheesecakes, sweet sauces and glazes.
In recipes where the amount of sugar is quite high or where browning is a vital element, such as crème brulée, we would not recommend complete substitution of sugar with SPLENDA®.
