The Poll is closed and the findings were interesting to say the least. Splenda won.... :-( This is my least favourite of all of them!!! Don't like the aftertaste at all!
These are my findings, just personal preferences, and where taste is concerned there is no right or wrong. But for my easy of use, taste or more importantly, aftertaste and the biggest test of all is if I can convince my Mother-in-law & Father-in-law (MiL & FiL) that its sugar!!!!
I have made a cake with Hermasetas and it was great, no aftertaste at all, the cake didn't rise as much as with one made of sugar but for diabetic in-laws this hit the spot. Neither of them could tell the difference!!
The canderel looks and smells more like the real thing, we are using that in the sugar bowl at the moment, the texture is the closest to the original so very good at convincing the oldies, BUT it is the most expensive.
I made a rice pudding with it yesterday and again no aftertaste and passed the sweet tooth test of F-I-L!!!
Tesco is the cheapest, and a good sugar substitute, it has little or no aftertaste and as it comes in a plastic jar feels like you're buy nothing but air...its so light! Haven't baked with this one yet but when I do I will come back and update you!
I still have sweetness & Light to cook with yet, I have used it in hot drinks and did the wet finger taste test and that was good, my girls like this one as its in a pink jar...but we can't judge it on that now can we???
