Comparing Sugar Substitutes

Sugar substitutes provide desirable calorie and carb savings, but they're not suitable for all recipes. We put sugar substitutes to the test in our favorite yellow cake recipe (baking) and cooked pudding (stove top), and as a basic sweetener for iced tea. Download our helpful guide for the results of our cake-baking test. Look for the icons that also show which substitutes were best in stove-top cooking and as a basic sweetener.
