What do you want to know? I want to be able to make my own. The stuff on ebay for 2 ozs. sounds fine. It's just you can make more with the powder pure sucralose . That what I want.

Hi ladies ;-)

You may find this thread helpful:

http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...enda-best.html

chewiegand, your product sounds good, however, I prefer to make my own liquid sucralose (as does mamasylvia ;-) from pure sucralose powder as described in the above thread.

For baked goods, I prefer to use sugar alcohols like Erythritol and Xylitol as their substance enhances the recipes texture.

Esther, the easiest product to use, that I have found, is described in the above thread.

I’ll be happy to help if you have further questions…happy sweetening! ;-)

Thanks so much. My health food store has Xylitol as a bulk item and it's only $6.99 a pound.

Bobo, if you're still out there and reading LCF posts, I want to thank you for putting it in my head to buy this product.

I have gone thru all the posts, thank you to Scott for his advice too and of course, LCMan and PianoAl.

Saves a LOT of carbs and money making your own liquid splenda.

Now I can bake again, yay just in time for the holidays. Once i actually make the liquid splenda lol

I don' tknow the breakdown but I did this, from reading the collection of advice here and from PianoAl's post about this subject:

dilute 1 TBS of sucralose in a half cup of water.

Tastes just like liquid splenda when sweetening to me.

I paid 40 bucks for my 2 oz, to those interested. One of our guys here, I think it was LowCarbMan, did the math and I think it saved a few dollars from buying it by the bottle, but too lazy to find those posts

When I make my liquid sucralose, the directions that came with my powder said to put a teaspoon of the powder to 3/4 cup of water. Heat in microwave and 1 TBL of that liquid is equal to 1 cup of Splenda. I got my powder a hundred years ago, so the of course the directions could have changed since then!! But I just mixed some up a few minutes ago. I see I might have to order some more in the near future.

The “dry” Sucralose measuring problem:

First, the liquid products:

Liquid Splenda: “1/4 teaspoon = 48 teaspoons sugar equivalence (Strength 600 times sugar)”
1 teaspoon = 192 teaspoons sugar equivalence
1 Tablespoon = 576 teaspoons sugar equivalence

Sweetzefree: “1/4 teaspoon = 48 teaspoons sugar equivalence (Strength 200 times sugar)”
1 teaspoon = 192 teaspoons sugar equivalence
1 Tablespoon = 576 teaspoons sugar equivalence

25% Solution: “1/4 teaspoon = 48 teaspoons sugar equivalence at 25g Sucralose per 100 milliliter water (Strength 200 times sugar)”
1 teaspoon = 192 teaspoons sugar equivalence
1 Tablespoon = 576 teaspoons sugar equivalence

Fiberfit: “1 teaspoon = 8 teaspoons sugar equivalence (Strength 8 times sugar)”
1 Tablespoon = 24 teaspoons sugar equivalence

Second, how do we measure “dry” Sucralose? By Volume? By Weight?

By Volume:

Literature Consensus: “Sucralose (dry) = approximately 600 teaspoons sugar equivalence per teaspoon”
1 Tablespoon = ~1800 teaspoons sugar equivalence

Volume to Weight Relationship:

Global Food Industry: “Sucralose bulk density = 0.7 Grams per Cubic Centimeter”
28.35g/oz / 0.7g/cc = 40.5cc per ounce or 2.74 Tablespoons per ounce
1 Tablespoon = ~10.35 grams

AZJeanne, locarbman: 1oz = ~4 Tablespoons per ounce
1 Tablespoon = ~7.02 grams

Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy: “Sucralose powder = 2.07 Grams per teaspoon (5ml)”
28.35g/oz / 2.07g/t = 13.7t or 4.57 Tablespoons per ounce
1 Tablespoon = ~6.2 grams

There appears to be considerable discrepancy in the weight to volume measures I have found so far (above). There is also the weight error factor related to accuracy of scales…the tolerance of my scale is the nearest +/- 1/8 ounce, 1 gram).

Although there are also problems with volume measures (measuring spoons ;-) involving the “fluffy and sticky” nature of Sucralose Powder, I prefer them to weight measures at this point and find the liquid forms preferable for a more accurate measure in my recipes.

Your Guess about dry weight measures is as good as mine…any further opinions or suggestions? ;-)

PS: Go Steelers!!!
Hey I have a few ? For ya I am making e-juice out if powder sucralose an I have got that 1 gram is equal to 1ml an that I will need to mix 1ml to 4ml water but what I want to know is can I use PG (proplen glycol) instead of water an is my equation right an if Iam thats 25% right so my next ? Is how many ml's of sucralose an water do I need to get to 10% solvent? Thanks so much for any help stacey.

Hi Stacey ;-)

can I use PG (proplen glycol) instead of water

I use (and recommend) Vegetable Glycerine (a natural preservative with anti-bacterial properties) as a replacement for water in my solutions. Propylene Glycol is another member of the Glycerol family with several properties in common with Vegetable Glycerine, however, I would suggest you research this product to determine whether it also has the anti-bacterial properties associated with Vegetable Glycerine that would make it a suitable product for your solutions that will not require refrigeration.

how many ml's of sucralose an water do I need to get to 10% solvent?

Mathematically speaking, if 1g Sucralose powder in 4ml solvent makes a 25% solution, then 1g Sucralose powder in 10ml solvent will make a 10% solution. ;-)

A 25%w/v (weight/volume) solution requires 25g Sucralose powder mixed in 100ml solvent or 1g Sucralose powder mixed in 4ml solvent (for a solution strength where 1t solution = 185t sugar equivalence).

A 10% w/v solution requires 10g Sucralose powder mixed in 100ml solvent or 1g Sucralose powder mixed in 10ml solvent (for a solution strength where 1t solution = 74t sugar equivalence).

Hope this helps,

locarbman... ;-)

I have bought from a company called American Health Food Ingredients in the past (I believe locarbman has also), however I just discovered that Hard Rhino (which sells a lot of different bulk powders) is selling it for, I think, about half as much. (9.99 for 30 grams, the equivalent of maybe 2200 sweetener packets.) I'm not allowed to link to them, but you can do a search.

The easiest way I have found and it works great.

1 T. of pure powdered sucralose and 3 T. of filtered water
This will make 1/4 tsp. of liquid = 1 cup of sweetening

or if you want to carry one with you is
1 tsp of powder and 1 T. of filtered water

Simply!!!!

Hope this helps.

Mistake?

Ok here is my dilema...I used a scale and weighed out .5 oz of powdered sucralose. To that I added 1.5 ounces of water.

My question is the .5 ounces sure looked like more than a tbls ... is it ok to dilute it this way as opposed to the 1 tbsp to 3 tbsp ratio?

Terry I have no idea. I hope someone knows the answer for you. I do it the tablespoon way.

Here's a thought weigh 1 T. of powder and see how much .5 oz would be . Add untill you have a 1/2 oz.



I have 2 bottles( one 2oz. and the other 4 oz.) and when I make it I use 3 T. of powder and 1/2 c. of water plus 1 T.

No. It sounds to me like you are trying to weigh your sucralose and water which won't work since the method given uses volume. When we use volume to measure amounts of things their actual weight doesn't matter; if we weigh them it does.

Hi Terry,

You may find post #17 of this thread helpful:

http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...sucralose.html

To dilute .5oz of Sucralose Powder for a Sweetzfree equivalent strength where 1/4 teaspoon solution equals 1 cup of sugar equivalence I would add 3 Tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons of water to your .5 oz Sucralose Powder.

Happy Sweetening!

Thankyou all and locarb man I am honored, you answered... I went back and added the extra water and it seems fine...I think the part of being a sugar equvalent sweeteness was confusing me. I will book mark this page for reference...and to the person who answered about volume...yes that is where I got confused as .5 ounces looked like more than a tbls. Silly me, take something simple and all worked out and make it hard by overthinking
Rosethorns, thanks I usually use your method but as I said I had the scale out and you know the rest.
