Sugar Substitution

In recipes for sweetened sauces and beverages, all the sugar can be replaced with Sweet'N Low. However, recipes for most baked goods require sugar for proper volume and texture. For best results, experiment by substituting half the amount of sugar in a recipe with the sweetening equivalence of Sweet'N Low.

Equal® sweetens like sugar, but its cooking properties are different. Equal® works very well in fruit pies; however, cakes, cookies and pastries depend on sugar for bulk, tenderness, and browning, properties that sugar alternatives don't have. When cooking with Equal®, use recipes designed for Equal® or add to recipes after removing from heat to maintain sweetness. Prolonged cooking at high heat levels may result in some loss of sweetness.
