Can splenda be substituted for xyitol in recipes?

Amy Campbell


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.
