Please do not think that this

Please do not think that this is an advertisement for Splenda. It is not. However, for those looking for an alternative to that horrible stuff, their company is now making a product using stevia.

There are a number of sweeteners out their, (Sweet&Low, Equal, Stevia, Splenda, plus others) some are more sweet than others. Whether manmade/artificial or natural(found in nature) the chemical compound acts as a sweetener and the body doesn't know which one you used. So choose the one that you like best, and use it everywhere in your cooking as a sugar substitute.
Any sweetener substitute can be used to replace sugar or carbs. in any recipe. This is very useful for diabetics who want to reduce their CHO intake.
