Liquid Stevia Extract Can Replace Sugar in Your Next Recipe
Hello, and welcome back to our blog! Here at SoPure Stevia, we are dedicated to providing the highest quality stevia products available on the market. In today’s post, we wanted to give our readers a few tips on how to use liquid stevia extracts as a replacement for sugar in their next baking recipe.
Be Healthy, Substitute That Sugar
In baking, sugar not only sweetens the food being made, it also adds bulk and moistens the finished product. If you replace the sugar in your recipe with a liquid stevia extract, you need to be sure to make up for the lost bulk and moisture with another product or you might end up with a flat, dry version of whatever baked good you are trying to produce. To help with this process, we have listed a few easy steps that you can follow to ensure that your baked goods do not suffer from the lack of sugar.
- Step 1: First, you need to determine how much sugar the recipe calls for. Once you have determined this, substitute about 1 tsp. Of liquid stevia extract per cup of sugar that the recipe calls for.
- Step 2: After you have determined how much liquid stevia extract you are going to use, mix all of the dry ingredients required for the recipe in a large mixing bowl. Once you have mixed all of the dry ingredients together, set your mixing bowl aside.
- Step 3: To account for the missing bulk of the sugar, add ⅓ cup of extra liquid per cup of sugar called for. You can either use extra liquid that is already present in the recipe, or you can add an alternative bulking agent such as plain yogurt, egg whites, water, or apple butter.
- Step 4: Lastly, combine all of the ingredients as you normally would and add your liquid stevia extract to the recipe. Bake for the appropriate amount of time and enjoy your stevia-infused baked good!
With a little extra effort, replacing the sugar in your recipe with liquid stevia extract will provide the same exact sweetening power with none of the negative calories associated with excessive amounts of sugar. While we suggest around 1 tsp. Of liquid stevia extract per cup of sugar, this conversion can be played with in order to suit your tastes and preferences.
