Does anyone use splenda to bake with? If so, do you use regular splenda or the one that says splenda for baking? How does splenda work for gluten-free baking? Does it turn out just as good?

I do not use Splenda for anything. It is not a good product to use celiac or not celiac....I lost the site that told how bad splenda is for ones health , hopfully someone still has it, plus somewhere on this site a post states about it. I threw 2 large bags out after I read all the bad things about it.Sorry I hope I didn't burst your bubble about splenda..

Turtle,

I've never tried because I don't use artificial sweeteners, but my aunt (who is a kitchen maniac) is one of those people who makes every kind of food to adapt to every person at every event. Therefore, she always makes cakes and cookies and stuff with sugar and splenda in her recipes. Before gluten-free, I've sampled - there is a slightly aftertaste, but not bad. It's a 1 for 1 ratio of sugar to splenda for the powdered splenda. It is not the baking splenda.

I hope that helps a bit!

Mercola.com tells all about splenda. He's written a book on it.

Yes, I use splenda. I use a highly concentrated syrup though it's just pure sucralose and water. It isn't easy to come by though. Since Splenda is 600x sweeter than sugar you're really using very, very little of the actual spenda ingredient, everything else is filler.

Splenda for baking has sugar in it I believe. "Regular" splenda has maltodextrin which is corn derived.

The only thing you miss out on is the structure that sugar lends baked goods, sometimes you don't need it.

As far as safety is concerned, I think Splenda is safer than sugar is, for me anyway. However, you'll have to come to that determination yourself by weighing the evidence.

although he makes valid points, mercola does everything for the dis-promotion of other things to promote his own.
