Liquid Sucrolose at Aldi's
 
It is called Sucrolose on the Go for $2.69. Same size bottles as the Mio. Bought some today and has anyone figured out how much does a squirt equal. My tea is too sweet.

Anita you will find that it is hard to squirt them & know how much you are using. I tried to figure it out and couldn't.

Others will chime in.

SkeeterN 09-29-2013 06:06 PM

actually it squirted the same as the Mio's. Not hard but hard to judge

Harpmaker 09-29-2013 07:38 PM

Are you sure of the name and where you bought it? I got a Mio-type container called Sucralose To Go at Wally World some time ago, didn't like it and it's just been setting in the cupboard for months. What I don't like about it is the inability to get a dependable measured quantity out - it just shoots out in a stream when enough pressure is applied to the bottle.

Anyway, just in case my stuff is the same as what is being talked about in this thread the bottle has the following label on it:

http://sucralosetogo.com/images/Nutritionals.png

It also says that the bottle contains 200 servings (the same as a 100 packet box) and that "one squeeze equals 1 teaspoon of sugar". The problem is what the heck is a "squeeze"? My best guess goes back to the above image that says "a single serving is 0.25 ml" and there are 200 servings per bottle.

Hope that was some help.

I got it at Walmart. I just read that one squeeze = 1tsp. I tried to use the squeeze count in my pumpkin bake. I put in half of what the recipe said to use and it is very sweet.

I have a bottle of it from Walmart in front of me, and the nutrtiion facts above are correct. A teaspoon is 5 ml, so that would be 20 servings. The whole bottle is only 50 ml (10 teaspoons), 200 servings, equal to 100 packets of splenda. According to the bottle one squeeze (0.25 ml or 0.3 g) is equal to 1 teaspoon sugar.

It is a new Aldi's product.

5 ml is how much teaspoon wise?

The Sucralose to Go has been around for a while, I've bought it at Walmart. It may be new to Aldi though.

5 ml is one teaspoon. A serving of Sucralose to Go is 0.25 ml.

SkeeterN 09-30-2013 06:11 AM

I seriously think one teaspoon will be way to sweet.

Yes, that would be equivalent to 20 teaspoons of sugar, or 10 packets of Splenda.

SkeeterN 09-30-2013 06:13 AM

I am not sure the difference in the amount of sucrolose in these vs sweetz free that is one drop. You can't measure this thing with drops just squirts

SkeeterN 09-30-2013 07:20 AM

Made a cup of tea, squirted out 1/8 tsp and it was mildly sweet which would have worked but for the hey of it I squirted another 1/8 tsp and it was really sweet. For me I think I prefer the 1/4 tsp sweetness. So depending on how sweet you want your tea you can use 1/8 tsp or 1/4 tsp.

I still wish it were drops vs squirts

Sorry thats what I meant hard to judge how much is going in.

I had a lady at church who couldn't get it to work right. So I told her to go to the health food store or TJ's or Whole foods to get a small bottle w/ an eyedropper. That worked .

I just buy the sucralose powder and make my own.

I wasn't saying anything about the info being correct or not, just that a "squeeze" isn't the same for everyone. If you measure out the product it will work better in recipes, I suppose.

Harpmaker 09-30-2013 01:59 PM

Does the bottle look like this (this isn't from Aldi)?

http://cds.a9t2h4q7.hwcdn.net/main/s...rge/710205.jpg

I'll be shopping an my Aldi store tomorrow and I'll look for this.


BTW, rounded to 2 decimal points 0.25 ml equals 0.05 teaspoons and conversely 0.25 tsp equals 1.23 ml. Therefore 1/4 tsp of this product would equal very close to 5 tsp of sugar. 1 tsp of this product would equal 20 tsp of sugar.

This is it.

Harpmaker 09-30-2013 03:09 PM

Thanks for the picture! As far as I can tell the 3 products mentioned on this thread are the same, or at least are of the same sweetening concentration.

I just now realized that you meant 1 squeeze is equivalent to 1 tsp. sugar. I thought you meant 1 squeeze = 1 tsp. of the product. That would be a very long squeeze!

Will look for this at Aldis. I use the one from Walmart sometimes.
Kroger also has their own brand of liquid sucralose as well. I have not tried it yet though.

Harpmaker 10-01-2013 05:51 PM

Just got back from shopping at my Aldi store and they didn't carry that item. I didn't even see it at my Wal-Mart anymore. :annoyed: I will have to say that my area doesn't thrive on innovation. :sad:

penguinpower 10-03-2013 11:48 AM

I found it with the oddball "seasonal" type items in our Aldi. I would have never noticed it if not for this thread, so thanks!

This is where I found it.

tulipsandroses 10-03-2013 04:34 PM

I saw this product on sale for $1.99 at Bed Bath and Beyond for anyone that is looking and does not have Aldis close by.

Low Carb Librarian 10-03-2013 09:14 PM

I just stopped by my Walmart last night and they didn't have it anymore !!!!
I will have to look around and stock up.

They were moving in the skinny girl line, but they didn't have the one made with sucrolose

mamalaw 10-03-2013 10:30 PM

Low Carb Librarian I had the same problem...not at wally world anymore. Looks like I'm going to be running to Aldi and/or bed bath and beyond thanks tulipsandroses and SkeeterN. This board is great!!

LindaSue 10-04-2013 04:59 AM

I just saw Kroger's yesterday for the first time. It's called Apriva and the price is $2.99. Also, the Walmart website says that theirs is out of stock online so maybe that's why there's none on the shelves of some stores. If anyone lives in Texas, HEB has the same one that Walmart sells.

luvmybabyhead 10-05-2013 07:08 AM

I asked at Walmart this am and the grocery manager said they no longer carry the liquid sucralose. Just the "skinny girl" brands of various sweeteners...nothing like EZ Sweet & the like anymore. Boo.

Harpmaker 10-11-2013 11:58 AM

I was just to my Aldi store and not only found the liquid Sucralose, but also the same thing in Stevia. The reason I missed it the last time I looked for it is that is wasn't with the powdered sweeteners, but clear across the store in the isle with Halloween goodies... go figure. Something that surprised me is that there is more Erythritol than Stevia in the Stevia On The Go! Price for each at my store was $2.69. Of additional interest is that a "squirt" of the liquid Sucralose is 0.25 ml (as noted earlier in this thread), but a "squirt" of the liquid Stevia is 0.30 ml. Of course this is rather redundant since squirts from neither bottle can be that controllable; it's really just add to taste.
