One of my biggest frustrations with low carb baking is converting sweeteners. It seems that every low carb recipe uses a different sweetener, and often not the ones I have on hand! And every low carb sweetener conversion chart uses just one sweetener (typically sugar) as the base.

But what if the recipe I want to make calls for THM Gentle Sweet and all I have on hand is Pyure?

That means I end up having to do math. And I’m not particularly good at math. It makes my head hurt and my brain shut down.

Seriously.

So with the help of my wonderful husband, I created a set of conversion tables that lets me easily convert one sweetener to another with no calculator required! And I want to share them with you.

Be Mindful When Making Conversions

One important note about converting sweeteners for baking. Baking is truly a science. Recipes are created based on a certain amount of volume and a wet to dry ingredient ratio. So depending on the sweeteners you may need to compensate for these changes.

The charts below are converting so that you have the same amount of sweetness in your recipe. But let’s say the recipe calls for 1 cup of a sweetener and the conversion calls for just 3 Tablespoons, you will need to add some bulk in a different way.  Generally you would use more of the flour called for in the recipe. If you’re going in the opposite direction (recipe calls for 3 Tablespoons and you’re adding 1 cup), you will need to add more liquid.

The bottom line that you need to remember when converting sweeteners is that it may change how the recipe turns out. If you’re not happy with the finished product, don’t give up on a particular recipe! Just try it with the exact ingredients used by the recipe’s creator, or make adjustments to make it more wet or dry (based on what seems off).

2 Comments on Low Carb Sweetener Conversion Tables

  1. Thank you so much! This is awesome! I often get excited by a certain recipe, but then realize it calls for a sweetener I don’t have, and won’t have. And have had a few yucky tasting products from before I knew there was a difference so have been pretty gun-shy about trying new recipes. This will help immensely I’m sure!
