Sugar Twin and Sugar Twin Brown

Sugar Twin and Sugar Twin Brown

Does anyone use this?

I found it at the 99 cent store yesterday so I nabbed a box of each.

Hopefully, you all can give me some advice and/or recipes for this.

I am hoping it will be a good brown sugar substitute.

Opinions please.

And if it's a bad product or just plain unhealthy, please let me know. TIA

It's not good for things that are heated. It will get bitter.

I never much cared for them when they were popular in the 70's/80's, Nigel. The most palatable way I used the white was in tea and coffee. The brown was OK sprinkled at the last few minute on baked apples and peaches, in crumb toppings, or sometimes on oatmeal. Never had any luck baking cakes/muffins/cookies with either one.

Thanks gals. I'm glad I only got a box of each...guess I can sprinkle it on oats or something.

I did see lots of baked recipes on their site, but I wouldn't like anything that comes out bitter. I'm taste sensitive to most artificial products.

I just noticed that netrition carries this. So many products to try--so little time.

IIRC it's saccharin, which doesn't hold up to heat - so baking is out, but otherwise, I think it's OK to use for stuff like mousse or items that aren't heated.

You can mix the brown sugar one with a little cinnamon and put it on LC toast or sliced apples though!

Don't like them. When I first started low carbing, brown sugar twin was the only brown sugar sub I could find. My times have changed in such a short time. I now have 2 favorite brown subs. Ideal Brown and LC Foods Brown Sweet.

I have some old cookbooks, where saccharin is used as one of the sweeteners. When I used saccharin liquid in a mix of sweeteners, it worked really well.

Nigel I also use it as a synergy effedt with other sweetners. Never by itself.I think it works fine in a recipe.

It's weird because they're the same product, but I've always liked the taste of Sugar Twin more than Sweet 'n Low. To me Sweet 'n Low is much more bitter.
I only use ST occasionally now in coffee. Only one store here carries it anymore (HEB).
