SPLENDA® Sugar Blend is a mix of pure sugar (sucrose) and SPLENDA® Brand Sweetener. This product is designed to help you cut back on the sugar, while providing great taste and better baking qualities (texture and moistness, etc.) that you desire in your favorite recipes. In SPLENDA® Sugar Blend, half the sweetness comes from pure sugar and half comes from sucralose, so you will only need to use half cup of SPLENDA® Sugar Blend to replace a full cup of sugar in your favorite recipes.
SPLENDA® Sugar Blend is specifically designed for use with baked goods, especially those where sugar has a major role in some of the baked goods1 characteristics – like volume, browning, rise, texture, and moistness. Granulated SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener (SPLENDA® Granulated Sweetener) offers more calorie savings and works best in recipes that use sugar for sweetness. It can be used in many baked goods, with no, or only minor, modifications.
Yes. People with diabetes can eat a variety of food products, according to the dietary program prescribed by their doctor and/or a registered dietitian. These can include foods sweetened with sugar. However, meal plans for people with diabetes usually control total calories and/or carbohydrate intake. When used in place of sugar, SPLENDA® Sugar Blend can help people with diabetes reduce their intake of carbohydrates and calories by providing half the calories and carbohydrates of sugar, but with all of sugar's taste. It is important to note that SPLENDA® Sugar Blend does contain sugar, and other ingredients in the foods to which it is added may also provide additional calories and carbohydrates. People with diabetes need to count these calories and carbohydrates when planning their meals. In order to help people manage intake, all of the recipes made with SPLENDA® Sweetener Products available at www.splenda.com provide complete nutrition information.
Using SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener instead of sugar makes sense. It has the sweet taste you love, without all of the calories and carbohydrates of sugar.
