  • SarahThanks for the list Carrie. It is very helpful.

    Could you please tell me if polydextrose would be included on that list? I have found a chocolate bar that contains this.

    • carrieSarah – polydextrose is a polymer of glucose, so I would add it to the sugar list :-(ReplyCancel

  • AlexisI did have a little giggle when I saw Sugar. It’s still Sugar.ReplyCancel

    • carrieHa ha, Alexis!!! This is what happens when you shamelessly post Bailor’s list and don’t proof-read it first ;-)ReplyCancel

  • ElaineHow about Truvia? Is that sane?

    Love all your recipes…thanksReplyCancel

    • carrieHi Elaine – thanks for the recipe love!! SOME Truvia is OK to use as a sweetener – but all their products are different to one another. The baking blend has sugar in. For all sweetener blends and brands you need to read the ingredient!! Sad but true.ReplyCancel

  • Terry SmithHello there, do you have any recipes for jam/jelly using xylitol?ReplyCancel

  • DeniseCarrie, I’ve heard you say before that you don’t like stevia. I’m curious how you feel about black licorice? Reason I ask is that I also hate stevia – because it reminds me of anise/black licorice, which I cannot stand.ReplyCancel

    • carrieHi Denise – I actually love licorice! I never thought Stevia tastes like it, but to be fair, I had Stevia once and hated it so much I haven’t had it again. I cannot imagine people using it as a sweetener!ReplyCancel

  • DominiqueHi Carrie,

    A lot of recipes I see have honey as the sweetener. Is there a ratio for replacing honey with stevia or xylitol?ReplyCancel

    • carrieDominique – Sadly no. Honey is wet, so you can’t swap out 1:1 with a dry sweetener – you would have to tweak the recipe to account for the liquid.ReplyCancel

  • NatalieSo honey is SANE? If so, how much is too much.ReplyCancel

    • carrieHi Natalie – honey is inSANE. Our body responds to it just the same as sugar. Any honey is too much. The only time I use it is when I have a cold or flu and I use raw honey to heal my throat. Hope that helps!ReplyCancel
