Sukrin Icing doesn’t have that strange after taste that a lot of artificial sweeteners do! It also shares the exact same sweetness and weight to regular icing sugar – which makes it really easy to substitute in recipes like this 1 Syn Summer Berry Dessert.
If you are using a powdered sweetener, then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases you’ll need to use less, as powdered sweeteners weigh less.
That being said you don’t have to use Sukrin – there are lots of other high quality granulated sweeteners available from the supermarket, such as Canderel Sugarly, and Natvia.
