* When baking, it may be necessary to experiment with reduced amounts of Sugar Twin to achieve the best results. Recipes calling for more than 1/2 cup of sugar are not recommended. I tend to use much less Sugar Twin than the equivalency. It’s important to do the taste test as you mix the recipes.

NOTE: You must always do a taste test when cooking or baking with sugar substitutes. Granulated fructose is sweeter than granulated sugar, so you should reduce the quantity as shown in the chart above. I use even less rranulated fructose than the amounts listed in the above chart; my mea­surements are usually half or less than the granulated sugar called for in a regular recipe. You may find that you also prefer to use less.

I always use granulated fructose in recipes where ingredients have to be creamed together, because the sugar substitutes do not have enough bulk tor creaming. Sometimes I will combine granulated fructose with a sugar substitute. By all means, use your favorite sugar substitute for baking—just remember not to use anything that contains a great deal of aspartame, because it becomes bitter at high temperatures.
