    I have a recipe I want to make - it uses sugar (150g) .... I want to replace this with granulated sweetner - the sweetner weighs less so should I use 75g of sweetner to replace the 150g sugar or how much should I use?

    If you take a look at the splenda website it gives equivalents for when baking with sweetener. I imagine it will be similar even if not using splenda itself.

    I weighed out 1 cup sugar and it weighed 206g
    I weighed out 1 cup sweetner and it weighed 16g

    I needed 150g sugar so worked out by above reasoning I should need 12g sweetner - going to try this tomorrow

    Making LEMON SORBET by the way
