Sugar to Splenda conversion

According to the manufacturer, Splenda replaces sugar 1:1. My experience is that the volume must be reduced when using Splenda. I am currently using a 1 : .75, sugar to Splenda conversion.

Has anyone else noticed a problem with the recommended 1:1 conversion?

I used to use Equal, which is aspartame, and I found 1:1 was okay. I have always assumed that these fake sugars were one in the same but maybe Splenda is different.

Very interesting, YT. We use honey to sweeten things like cereal or tea. Otherwise, we stick with sugar.

YT, a couple years back I did a huge research paper on aspartame. I was APPAULD (among other things) at what I learned. I no longer trust "FDA approved" or any type of artifical sweetener. Thanks for the website.
