C&H Sugar has always been a part of my life, because it’s the brand my mom used in all of her baking when I was growing up. So I jumped at the chance to participate in a review and giveaway campaign for C&H Light, which is an “all natural pure cane sugar & stevia blend with half the calories of sugar.”
I’m not big on artificial anything but a natural no-calorie sweetener is right up my alley. According to Wikipedia and some other sources I found in a Swagbucks search, there are some potential health concerns with stevia, though the type you see in sweeteners has been approved by the FDA for consumption. My personal conclusion is that I won’t use it in huge amounts, but it certainly has its place in my home, especially when I’m baking for anyone watching their sugar intake.
The truly wonderful thing about C&H Light is that it substitutes one-for-one for sugar and tastes the same as sugar. I did a simple taste test by baking two butter cakes (recipe forthcoming) and tasting them side by side:
I have to admit that I kind of lost track of which cake was which during the baking process. I think the cake on the right is the one made with C&H Light. It hardly matters, however, because the cakes looked and tasted virtually identical. In a blind taste test, I don’t think you could tell which was which.
