I understand that xylitol can actually be used in equal quantities to sugar. If your recipe calls for 1/2 cup of sugar, you can replace it with 1/2 cup xylitol. I will say though, while it sweetens like sugar, it also has a different flavor on the tongue and effect in the body. To me, xylitol is a little bit minty, and it can be cleansing. I’m not sure if the cleansing effect diminishes after baking or not, but it’s worth a try. 😀
Yes, I cook with it. None of us notice the difference. Speaking of Xylitol….I can’t find an old recipe for making mouth rinse. It came from another class I took from Angela. I hope someone can post it for me. Thank you.
I’ve only used Xylitol when making a toothpowder/paste and I like it in that.
A word of caution be sure your animals, especially dogs, do not ingest any Xylitol – it is deadly to them even in small amounts.
