9 posts in this topic

What do you think of Sugar-Stevia blend from C&H company?

Today, I baked mini gluten free zuchinni muffins. Yum! it is truely delicious compares to regular flour zuchinni muffins. :lol: Which I dont really miss at all.... :P

plus I used new kind of sugar that is blended with stevia. oh my gosh very little of sugar-stevia blend go very long way! :o

recipe called for half cup of sugar. bag of blend said that one cup of regular sugar is equal to half cup of sugar and stevia blend. so i only used 1/4 cup of sugar-stevia blend. It is just tasty and very natural plus half in calories!!! wow, I am pretty impressed with that product. :D

however, now next step are baking mini chocolate tollhouse gluten free cookie bites that include sugar-stevia blend. I will see how it go for cookies. i will update my post. :)

mini zuchinni muffins are very addictive. It made me wanna to polish one batch off haha but thankfully that I add mittled flaxseeds to make it more fulling and safistying plus more fiber and amino acids like omegas-3. Haha! :P

i guess i am becoming a baker in speciality within time. :D

Prickly, I will eventually try pinterest recipes when i return from florida in two weeks. I am jsut try to finish my veggies off before I leave so that way i dont come back to moldy and rotten veggies.

zuchinni was one of veggies that i needed to used up fast cuz i bought bit too many. (it was on sale)

only veggies i have left are carrots, baby boy choy, green peppers, sweet peppers, and onions. so I am thinking about whip them up in big stir fry but this time i will serve over rice with chicken.

Chocolate chip bites were success. My family members dont really like it too much. they said it is not same as nestle tollhouse chip recipe at all. :blink:

I told them that its prehap bit different since sugar and flour are different from regular flour and sugar.

i dont know what to make it taste great as nestle tollhouse chocolate chip cookies... :huh:

oh well, i think it taste good to me! :P Just that I added MINIS chocolate chips since it is chocolate chip bite-size rather than regular chocolate chip cookies.

Would that make it any difference in taste?

oh well I just prehap need to change butter since I used margarine instead of real butter... it would make it any difference?

Both the chips and the butter will change the flavor and texture.

I'd take down the butter a bit when converting. gluten-free recipes tend to need less - 1/4 to 1/3 less?

And I think the Nestl

yes,

you are correct.

i am suspesting it is butter and size of chips do affect the taste and dont really call up to best tasting cookies.

I guess i should just abide by the recipe strictly without really tweaking and substitusing etc.

Some recipes just need to be tested a bit? Do you keep notes about the results? I found it best to do that so I could tweek the recipe a bit as needed the next time I try it.

I'm happy to see you're baking. Are you feeling better?

Your zucchini muffins sound yummy! I'll bet your cookies were good too, just a bit different than Toll house? If you family doesn't like them...more for you! LOL ;)

Notebooks are great. I've started two-one for holidays and one for gluten-free experiments. I leave 2-3 pages between each new experiment so I can add notes as I go.

thank you Bubba's mom and prickly for the suggestions!

I never thought of keeping the notebook to record that i did already tried tweaked recipes and take note of what does work and what does not work that way i dont make mistake again!

What a great idea!

Bubba's mom, oh yes I do see improvement in my energy level and no issues with gas and BM lately. I just dont feel so sleepy and so drained so much.

I just started mulitvitamins and probotics but its too early to say if probotics are needed. I could tell that my energy soared when i started mulitvitamins. I feel like i am kid again! I do pray that it will last long time if i keep up with mulitvitamins and cut gluten out that I am not at borderline prediabetic level anymore after get disagnosed with PCOS and had bloodwork drawed out and doc said i am at edge of getting diabetic disease unless i do something about it. :huh:

I am already on low carb diet but found that gluten can cause more issue in me so i cut bread and pasta out and its so much better.

sorry if i am rambling.... I am just saying that its best for my health's sake. :)

    • So my heart has been doing weird stuff post gluten challenge. Skips beats, arrhythmias, chest pain. It was getting a bit better then worse again in July.   My cardiologist has done 2 stress tests, halter monitor, and we have not caught anything other then harmless pvc's. But I KNOW this is not right for my heart and it has gone wacky out of sync and we never catch it on a damn test. All of my doctor's were connected out of a larger practice, so the GI, cardio, neuro, and primary care can all see the mountains of tests I had and think I am a nutcase the moment I walk through the door. I will admit that I informed the old GI about the DGP test being positive and I sent over some info on the test as they were basically using TTG and old gliadin tests, and they were receptive. But for the most part, I do not trust doctors. I was once told I was in false labor when I actually had 13 gallstones and an infection in my bile duct. I have more horror stories, as we all do. So, my protein and RBC were low in the hospital but all up to good levels now so it is not a vitamin deficiency. My heart has already skipped multiple beats today. The other day, it again went out of rhythm for just 20 seconds or so. I am not drinking coffee or alcohol because of the acidity, so it is not that. I was glutened on August 24th and probably once in July. Does anyone have weird heart issues that vanish eventually? If so, how long does it take? I am an over-thinker, which has its pros and cons. I know we are at an increased risk for CAD which is not really my concern right now. My gut is inflamed, my thyroid is inflamed and my adrenal gland was effected by all of this. I sort of wonder if an exposure to gluten causes some kind of myocarditis, an inflammation that would not be picked up a sonogram per se, and may eventually vanish with a gluten free diet. Has anyone ever had experience with myocarditis? I did a lot of reading on Roemheld syndrome, gastro-cardio syndrome, which is basically a set of cardio symptoms resulting from your gut. Praying it is just that! I just feel like now that I have a diagnosis, I need to rebuild a team of doctors that I feel have my back. This is a sucky disease that can have a lot of ill effects and I need a team I feel is intelligent, supportive and willing to research. I already have a new GI and a great Endocrinologist. I am seriously contemplating a new cardio and neuro as they both talk to me like I am a 12 year-old with "hysterical girl syndrome".
    • I was not officially diagnosed with narcolepsy when I was younger and still haven't.  However, even in my junior high and high school years and on through my college years staying awake was always a struggle for me.  maybe the gluten was a factor back in junior high and just didn't realize it.    There were times in church and other times I would just BAM fall asleep without warning.  Frustrating and somewhat embarrassing to say the least.  Now that I have been off gluten for close to a year now, the "feeling" of needing to sleep is becoming less and less.  Still have periods of sudden sleepiness, but not as often any more.
    • when they first came out, I read the ingredients on them, and they don't seem to contain malt.  But the company, at that time specifically posted on the website that they  are not gluten-free.  So I don't drink them.
    • Rum is naturally gluten free, but in cases where it is flavored, spiced, etc. you have to be careful where they might add a malt in the natural flavorings. I been using Admiral Nelsons coconut rums in cooking for finishing off stir frys, and adding a bit of flavor to caramelized ingredients for a few years now, I have never had issues with those. As for the Morgan, I would be careful with the spiced version as they might use a malt based ingredient in it. I did a bit of research and like you found no conclusive evidence to if it contains gluten or not. The plain rum from them is listed on many and been tested by several groups and has come up gluten free. On a side note if your a celiac or have intestinal damage I would avoid alcohol or drink in moderation. I personally only use it in cooking.
    • Hi, It seems they advertise it as a malt beverage.  Malt is made from barley normally, so it would not be gluten-free.  Unless they specify the malt is corn malt, it is always assumed to be barley malt per FDA labeling regs.
