Sugar Substitutes Conversion Chart



Sweet'N Low

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™.

1/3 cup 8 2 1/2 tsp 2 tsp
1/2 cup 12 4 tsp 1 Tbsp
1 cup 24 8 tsp 2 Tbsp



Equal®
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. The stevia powder referred to in this chart is the pure form, or the liquid made from the pure powder. Please note that the stevia substitution amount may vary by brand.

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...
