converting sugar to sweetner?

i only know that splenda is meant to be like-for-like.

that said, i find sweeteners to be too artificial-tasting to swap fully. i prefer to use honey, applesauce, mashed banana, etc in addition to a smaller amount of sweetener.

I always go off the fact that 5g of sugar is 1 teaspoon, so to get the equivalent of 25g sugar, measure out 5 teaspoons splenda

Wouldn't go with 'like for like' - i think this is for volume, not weight

I always find I need to use a fair bit less sweetner than sugar. Even in tea - I'd have one teaspoon sugar, but only a very small half of sweetner :-/

If you look on the splenda website you will find some guidance on how much sweetener to use in place of sugar
definately go for volume not weight - sweetner weighs next to nothing, so you could end up with some awfully sweet things if you matched it gramme for gramme.

I find it a whole lot sweeter anyway, so usually use half too, but then add more if I think I need it - I work on the principle that I can always add more, but can't take it away!
