To take the place of sugar in baking, you might try Splenda. That's the
brand name. It's available only from the company, which you can find at the
www.splenda.com on the internet. It's not yet sold in stores. It's used in
some products, like Diet Rite Cola and Log Cabin Lite syrup. It's made from
sugar but has no calories. It tastes more like sugar than any of the other
subs, according to my taste buds. Supposedly you can use it in baking just
like sugar, but I think you have to cut the baking time to keep it from
drying out, according to a friend who tried it.
