Sugar Substitutes Conversion Chart
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.

1/33 of a teaspoon of stevia (liquid) (same as mini-spoon included in Sweetvia 1 oz. bottle) = 1 teaspoon sugar. 1/4 to 1/3 of a regular teaspoon of stevia (White Powder Extract Only) = 1 cup sugar.

I'm not Muslim, but an increasing number of my customers are — and many of those customers fit the ethnic profile for increased risk for (and occurrence of) type 2 diabetes. Fasting with type 2 can be as simple as a one-day change in diet and in medication schedule, or it can be as frought and tempestuous as someone with type 1 and highly-variable blood glucose trying to manage the month-long feast-and-famine cycle that is Ramadan. As a Jewish person with diabetes, I have...
