BAKING WITH STEVIA

 

Stevia extract is many times sweeter than sugar, so remember a little goes a long way. Stevia can be used in place of all sweeteners from sugar to honey to aspartame. Refined Stevia extracts are considered to be non-caloric. They are also suitable for cooking and baking, because they are extremely heat stable. Stevia does not caramelize, or crystallize like sugar, so it may not be suited for a few applications.

 

Baking Tips:

  •     Stevia is not suitable for recipes with added yeast since
         sugar is needed to feed fermentation.
  •     Please keep in mind that foods baked with Stevia do
        not rise as well as those baked with sugar.
