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. 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.

I'm sitting waiting for a table at the cafe' for me and a friend who is running a bit late. Feeling a little off, I grab my test kit and poke my finger, getting a little blood droplet. "Does that hurt?" Asks the man sitting next to me. He's an older guy, with some pretty profound ear hair. I note the ear hair as I say "Sort of... I think I'm kind of used to it now. I've been doing it a long time." My sugar is a little elevated...
