What type of sweetener do you use most often when you cook?

Poll dates: November 7 - 14, 2004
Total Votes: 515

There are many sugar substitutes available for people interested in reducing their carbohydrate intake. Most of our readers report using sugar when cooking. With carbohydrate counting, people with diabetes can eat any food, including foods made with sugar.

The graph and chart below show that the number of people who report using sugar has remained at just over 50% for the past four years. The number of people using NutraSweet has declined significantly, from 16% in 2000 to 4% in 2004. At the same time, the number of people using Splenda has increased dramatically, from 9% in 2000 to 35% in 2004.
