All Purpose Sugar Free Blend

I've been trying a blend of 1/3 cup erythritol to 2/3 cup Poly D with a packet of Ace K.

I think it needs more sweetening, but I don't want to unnecessary carbs.

I have Sweetzfree - would that work? how many drops would you use?


Thanks, Rosie

I would try 1/2 cup equivilent.

12 drops or 1/8 tsp.

the synergy of the 3 should give you approx a cup.

I normally use 1/3 cup erythritol, 8 drops sweetzfree and one packet Ace K with 2/3 cup polyd for 1 cup sugar.

It is Sweet One. It should show up in blue... you can click it to read more about it or to purchase it from Netrition.

From the Sweet One insert:

What is Acesulfame-K?

Acesulfame-K is a sweetener with a clean, sweet taste which, unlike some sweeteners, stays sweet even in baked and cooked foods.

Beth, you might find it in a grocery store. Check any you have in the sweetener section. I use very little, but it adds to your other sweeteners to get a more like real sugar taste to your baked products. It is also in Diabetisweet. So if you use some of it in a sweeteners blend, you will be using AceK as well.

How many carbs does your blend have, do you know?

I count it as 12 as follows:
8 for the polyd (or 8% times the weight)
3 for the erythritol
1 for the acek
sweetzfree has none

Some people don't count anything for the erythritol though.

Beth, I bought a 250-gram container of an Ace-K product called "Sweet-n-Safe" at a health food store for about $16. That's a whole lot as its intense sweetness goes v-e-r-y far. I only use it as a booster to other sweeteners. Use even a bit too much and it can give a bitter aftertaste.

Took a while to find this info, but it appears that the Sweet-n-Safe is a variant of the SweetOne, except the filler isn't maltodextrin or dextrose as in most high intensity sweeteners, it's an inulin or oligofructose or FOS.

FYI.

Gosh, Jude...

...I didn't know that. You are one heck of a researcher! Guess that actually makes Sweet-n-Safe a somewhat better product. Thanks for the info.

Well THAT'S cool, I'll be on the lookout for this product. I much prefer inulin to the other fillers!
