Q:

Can splenda be substituted for xyitol in recipes?

Amy Campbell

A:

Both Splenda and xylitol have the same sweetening ability as sugar, so, theoretically, you should be able to substitute these two sweeteners for each other. You may need to experiment a bit with your recipes, however. Xylitol tends to absorb moisture, so a recipe using it may call for more liquid; if you substitute Splenda for the xylitol, the product may be too moist and you may need to cut back on the liquid somewhat.
