Default Baking with Truvia-Insights Sought

Hi

I was wondering does anyone here use the Truvia? I recently started using it for coffee & tea and really like it.

In the past I have always used Splenda to bake and never really liked it. Does anyone use the Truvia Baking Blend? I was on their site and it says it has 1g sugar per 1/2 tsp in the baking blend + the stevia not that I bake very often. I was just wondering if anyone here used it and if you had cravings after using it or weight loss stalls or other negative effects from it. Thankfully, I don't have diabetes to worry about but Splenda has always had such a chemical taste to me.

Hi pearlygirly!

I'm not a fan of stevia, so I don't use it and don't have any advice.

There is a stickied thread in the SB Frequently Asked Questions forum you can check out that has a ton of info on sweeteners and the like. It's called South Beach Diet and Replacements for Sugar (Sweeteners, Substitutes, etc.)

It talks about all kinds of sweeteners and what's best for baking, coffee, etc. I hope it helps!

I just started using truvia. I put it in my most recent batch of protein cheese cakes & I really prefer the flavour of it to Splenda.

Since I just started using it I have no idea if it will negetively affect my weightloss, but I have not noticed a single craving from it.

I was just reading the container, and no where on it does it say anything about 1 gram of sugar on the nutritional panel.

Lindsay,

Did you use the Baking Blend in your protein cheesecakes? Or 1 of the other Truvia products? The 1g sugar per 1/2 tsp is only a Baking Blend thing and I got this info from Truvia.com by looking at the nutritional tab/diabetes tab. Silly me I didn't think to turn over the bag & read it at the store. I like the spoonable & I can tell you there's no sugar in that and the spoonable doesn't affect me at all.

Both the Truvia Baking Blend and Splenda Baking Blend have sugar in them.

I've been using Truvia the past few years, both the packets and the spoonable for baking, and I really like it, since I don't notice any aftertaste in my baked goods.

Where did you buy your spoonable? I looked and could only find the packages
Take care

Sophie-

I bought the spoonable and I got mine at Wal-Mart. I also noticed it is about $1 cheaper there than the grocery store. I've seen all 3 forms of it at what we call Albertsons out West and Vons which I think is Dominicks in Midwest & East sry for not knowing store names.

Also, I thought it was interesting that our Wal-Mart carries stevia in the raw but only in bag like sugar comes in.
