Maltitol Recipes?

I have a bottle of fake honey made with Maltitol, that I use for making honey mustard. I know it bothers some people, but I can use it in small amounts. ( I also use Joseph's Sugar Free Syrup made with malitol).

Does anyone use this in baking? Does it help with texture, make things bitter etc? I came across these at a good price and stocked up. Now I have enough to try in baking, but I am a very reluctant cook. Don't want to use it if heat makes it weird tasting.

Thanks

Maltitol will not break down in baking. I would suggest you mix it with other sweeteners to lessen its gastrointestinal effects. Maltitol does not bother me or my family, but many people have trouble with it.

I'm fine with maltitol in small amounts - I LOVE Joseph's syrup, it's the most maple-syrup-like one of the lot, IMHO. I can use just about 1/4 cup of it, no more, before I start having tummy rumbles.

I use the maltitol honey quite a bit - love it on Greek yogurt (a drizzle, probably less than 2 tablespoons) and in my homemade BBQ sauce. I also use it in my homemade breads, 2 tablespoons per loaf, with no problems at all.

As Soobee says, maltitol is stable under heat so you shouldn't have any problems with it in baking or other cooking applications!
