Have you heard of ZSweet? This is a sugar substitute made of erythritol, which is a sugar alcohol found in many fruits and fermented foods like soy sauce, cheese, and wine and other fruit extracts. It has zero calories and it definitely does not leave an aftertaste. Many of the sugar substitutes tend to leave an aftertaste, so I was pleasantly surprised that it did not.
I also used it to bake with and you really would not know a sugar substitute was used, my banana bread and muffins were quite delicious. Oh, and it does not leave you bloated or gassy like many artificial sweeteners.

Have you used sugar substitutes in baked products before? Or do you prefer to use sugar?
