Zucrinet

Does anyone use this to sweeten their tea/coffee? Husband's trying to give up sugar as much as possible, but this seems to be so sweet I can't work out what the equivalent of a teaspoon of sugar would be.

Can't your husband work it out by trial and error? (Starting with a smaller amount and working up?)

Re: Zucrinet

Yes, that's the plan, but I've tried a few grains of it myself and it seems very sweet. Just wondering if anyone had used it for this purpose and in what quantity. Quarter teaspoon, eighth, half?

Re: Zucrinet

I take it you have the powder? I use the tablets. One tablet is like 1 tsp of sugar in my coffee. Maybe start with 1/4 tsp and then move up or down? You can always add more if it's not to his taste, but if you add too much at the beginning then the taste could be ruined and not worth drinking.

Re: Zucrinet

Yes, got the powder as I thought it would be easier for adjusting the sweetness. Thanks 3Wishes, I'll start with that and see how it goes.

We got some Colo from Lidl in the UK and that's great since it's one for one. But haven't seen anything similar here. Will have to do a stock up when we next go over.

Re: Zucrinet

Looking at the ingredients, its probably very similar to sweet n low - the stuff that comes in pink packs....so probably 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon equals one teaspoon sugar.
