Making Liquid Splenda--

Hey now. Just wondering if I can make a liquid sweetener equal, or almost, using the Splenda Mini-tabs? Has anyone tried this? What would the ratios be? I have a dropper bottle. Any and all help/comments are appreciated.
Thanks, helper

Would it not be easier just to buy liquid sucralose? Or are you perhaps trying to use up the mini-tabs?

I'm not sure this would work with mini tabs. I've only used pure sucralose powder to make liquid sucralose.

What is the ratio using that powder. Maybe I can get a hint from that.

I use 1 Tablespoon of powder to 3 T. of filtered water.

And this one 1 tsp. of powder to 1 Tablespoon of water.

Those will give you enough for 1/4 tsp will equal 1 cup of sweetner. So that is what you are trying to get.

Which brand or supplier do you use and how do you dilute, or do you just use in powdered form. Do you know what the powdered equivalent measurements are?
Thanks in advance.

I have bought from more than one seller. I just look for the best deal. I never actually measure .... just put some powder in a bottle and add water ... until I have a very concentrated mixture ... so that a little goes a long way. I carry a small "squirt" bottle of liquid "splenda" with me in my purse all the time.
Sometimes I just put a little bit of the powder in my tea without mixing it with water first. The powdered sucralose lasts a LONG time :-)

I bought some a few years back and the supplier told me how to dilute the powder and what ratios to use for my Splenda. I wish that those who sell the powdered stuff would tell you how to make it so that it would taste right!
