    No definitely not a substitute. They are completely different!

    Slowly cutting out refined sugar and cooking more from scratch
    chineese 5 spice is a specific blend so not sure what to suggest. If it helps at all it contains sugar, salt, dried onion, star anise,dried garlic, black pepper, fennel, ginger, cassia, cloves

    its a very unique taste.

    I have no idea what else you could use :(

    When I have made diet coke chicken I've only used passata and worcestershire sauce, not used any other spices and was fine.
