Hi Rosemary,
I recently discovered Splenda for cooking.. it's great! No aftertaste, 
measures like sugar. It's made from sugar, but no calories, carbs, sodium, 
fat or protein, and no chemicals! You can use it at all temps, baking, 
freezing, even the microwave.

There's a website:
and they say sucralose has no effect on blood glucose levels or insulin, 
doesn't promote cavities. It was approved by the FDA in 1998, and has been 
used internationally for 10 years.

I like it much better than Sugar Twin which was my previous favorite for 
         Sunland, CA
         Zone 19
