What type of sweetener do you use most often when you cook?

Poll dates: October 8 - 15, 2000
Total Votes: 724

There are many sugar substitutes available for people interested in reducing their carbohydrate intake. Most of our readers report using sugar when cooking. With carbohydrate counting, people with diabetes can eat any food, including foods made with sugar.

Aspartame is used most often by our readers who use sugar substitutes, though it must be used carefully in cooking because it breaks down at high temperatures and loses its sweetness. Other sugar substitutes hold up better to cooking.
