Non-Nutritive and Artificial Sweeteners
Also indexed as:Non-Nutritive Sweeteners
Preparation, Uses, & Tips
Non-nutritive sweeteners can be used in place of table sugar to sweeten hot and cold beverages. In addition, saccharin, sucralose, and acesulfame K are heat-stable and are suitable for baking. Keep in mind that non-nutritive sweeteners carry more intense sweetness than sugar. When substituting these products for sugar, only small amounts are needed to achieve the same level of sweetness. As a result, quantity modifications of several ingredients in a recipe may be necessary to accommodate the use of saccharin, sucralose, or acesulfame K.
