Question BROWN Sugar Substitute

Hi Guys,

Any idea if we can get a brown sugar substitute here. If so, any idea what it's called and where I might get it?

Cheers,
Wabi

Hi Wabi,

I'm not aware of any brown sugar substitute that is available here.

My suggestion is to find a friendly Canadian who might be prepared to send you some Brown Sugar Twin. You could perhaps send them some Splenda tablets in exchange, as they don't have the tablets there.

Sugar Twin comes in white and brown and, like Splenda, can be used in cooking. I find all AS to be a bit yuck, yet when they are combined, the flavour not only improves immensely, you only need the amount you'd otherwise use. (Yes, I have been sent some Sugar twin. )

Good luck!

Rosebud

LOL that reminds me of my friend who introduced me to Atkins, her husband is going on an extended business trip that includes America, as part of his penance for being away so long he has to take a spare suitcase and go low-carb shopping LOL!!! I happen to know Brown Sugar Twin is on his shopping list.

I wish my hubby had to go to America frequently! My boss does but I think getting him to bring back low-carb stuff every trip might be stretching the friendship considerably!!!

Thanks for the advice Rosebud (et. al)!

Fortunately, my bf is in Canada for another couple of months. Now, it's just a matter of reminding him to go to the store!

You can use Splenda and a good quality caramel extract for the brown sugar taste.

The right kind of Sugar Twin - made with cyclamates - is only available in Canada, not in the USA.
