Sugar-Stevia Blend Product

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. :)

    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.
