Do you know...?

I was reading the SP recipe of the day & saw that Splenda Brown Sugar was on the list of ingredients & the following thoughts came to mind. I hope that you find them helpful.

God bless!

Do you know that, when a recipe calls for Splenda Brown Sugar, you can save money by mixing Splenda with regular brown sugar?

Having checked the ingredients list of the product some years back, I realized that that is what the makers of Splenda Brown sugar do.

Also, in this gal's opinion, the Great Value alternative to Splenda works just as well & is less expensive.

    as for the 'why bother' splenda, as with most artificial sweeteners, leaves baked goods looking rather anemic. by using the brown sugar it allows the baking to acquire the nice brown/tan/golden appearance that we all like

    So true. My mom was diabetic and her specialist said that artificial sweetners were just as bad as real sugar if not worse. Just cut back on it and/or use applesauce. And no after taste. emoticon

    It has been shown that Splenda raises the blood sugar of all people and so diabetics should stay away from Splenda!!

    I looked at that recipe, too, because the picture looked so good, but I decided not to make it because the calories were just too high for me. Thanks for sharing your tip!

    I dont use splenda brown sugar at all. A lot of people do not realize that splenda brown sugar has real brown sugar in it, some diabetics then use it as if it were not going to affect their blood sugars. This could be corrected by reading the fine print where it does actually tell you this.

I havent looked at a bag in the last couple years so they may have changed the wording by now, but I doubt that they changed the method, for how else are you going to get that distinctive flavoring?

If I need to use brown sugar(which I rarely do) I just use the real stuff but less of it.

    I can't see why you would have to use a half & half sugar in a recipe to begin with unless you are cooking for diabetes affected people. emoticon

    Hi, Barbara!

emoticon for taking the time to read my sharing & to leave your much appreciated comment.

According to the list of ingredients on the Splenda Brown Sugar box, that is correct.

Why bother? Well, brown sugar mixed with Splenda cuts the calories a bit & for the diabetic that could make a huge difference.

Still, with no health condition for reason to use an alternative to regular brown sugar, I find myself, like you, questioning "Why bother?".

God bless!

    So are you saying that Splenda brown sugar is just brown sugar mixed with splenda? Why bother?
