TIPS TO CONVERT SWEETENERS
When substituting sweeteners in beverages, cooking, and baking, you might want to:
(1) swap one sugar for another
(2) reduce sugar
(3) remove sugar completely
Welcome! I’m Adriane, the person behind the Sweetener Calculator. A chemical engineer, food technologist, mother, and wife, I was born and raised in Brazil and have lived in the United States since 1996.
In April 2019, I launched the WhatSugar website to answer one question: “What’s the best sweetener?” I quickly realized that my readers’ biggest frustration was converting one sweetener to another. Time and time again, I’m asked, “How much sweetener to use instead of sugar? How to substitute this brand for another? Can I replace this product in my recipe?”
In an effort to begin answering these questions, I embarked on a thorough process of going down the sweetener rabbit hole. I gathered information from different sweetener websites. I deconstructed the front and back of sweetener packages (ingredients, nutrition facts, label claims). I contacted manufacturers and sellers to find all the details about their products. Based on this exhaustive research process, I created a calculator to help you substitute sweeteners in your drinks, baking, and cooking.
For those of you who asked me to break down the differences between sweeteners based on glycemic index, net carbs, calories, and sugar content per brand and product, I responded with the Calculator!
The Sweetener Calculator does just that and more. It compares products side by side and it gives you their ingredients and related products.
I hope you find this tool useful and are able to have some fun while you’re at it. Please let me know what you find most helpful, so that I can focus on those aspects and maximize its benefit in the future.
I’m so excited you’re here! I’m pretty sure the Sweetener Calculator is going to blow your mind!
