Using the SweetLeaf® Conversion Chart

There’s no shortage of fabulous recipes on the SweetLeaf website—appetizers, entrees, sides, desserts, breakfasts, beverages—all using no-sugar, zero-calorie SweetLeaf Stevia Sweeteners.  Yet, even with the hundreds of recipes on our website, you know what recipe we don’t have? We don’t have your Aunt Loretta’s Pepperoni and Peach Pizza, or your Uncle Bob’s Charred Brussels Sprouts with Anchovy Butter, or your sister’s Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars.

Using the Conversion Chart to Convert Sugar to Stevia

The recipes you’ve spent years collecting—including traditional family recipes—tell you how much sugar to use, but what if you want to make those same recipes using SweetLeaf? Many people say they simply don’t know how to convert sugar to stevia, but substituting stevia for sugar in baking and cooking is quick and easy with our Stevia Conversion Chart.

In an online recipe we found for Banana Meringue Pudding, the list of ingredients includes ½ cup of sugar for the meringue and ⅔ cups of sugar for the pudding. To convert sugar to stevia, the Stevia Conversion Chart tells you that the sugar to stevia conversion is ½ cup of sugar = 12 packets of SweetLeaf, or 1 tablespoon of SweetLeaf stevia powder from the shaker jar. The chart also tells how much stevia equals 1 cup of sugar: 24 packets. If 1 cup of sugar equals 24 packets, then ⅔ cup of sugar must be two-thirds of 24, which equals 16 packets, or—according to the chart—4 teaspoons of SweetLeaf stevia powder from the shaker jar. For our stevia packets and powder, the sugar to stevia ratio is 8 to 1, so 1 teaspoon of sugar equals ⅛ teaspoon of stevia powder.

Conversion is just as easy if you’re substituting sugar for SweetLeaf Liquid Stevia Sweet Drops™. A recipe using 1 tablespoon of sugar would use 15 drops of Sweet Drops. And, unlike sugar, Sweet Drops come in 16 delicious flavors. A comparison of the Banana Meringue Pudding recipe using SweetLeaf stevia vs sugar shows that there would be 928 calories from added sugars if the original ingredients were used. The same recipe using SweetLeaf stevia would contain 0 calories of added sugar.

Whether you use stevia powder, Sweet Drops, Water Drops™, or SweetLeaf Organic Stevia Leaf Extract, the Stevia Conversion Chart will convert sugar to stevia with ease. It’s a piece of cake!

And speaking of cake … we haven’t said anything about how to substitute stevia for sugar in baking. Sugar is a necessary ingredient in baked goods. Sugar encourages browning and keeps baked goods soft and moist; however, those benefits can be derived with a minimal amount of sugar. That’s why we make SugarLeaf.

Baking With Stevia Instead of Sugar

SugarLeaf is specifically designed for baking. Because SugarLeaf contains both cane sugar and stevia leaf extract, it has the browning and bulking qualities of sugar, but with two-thirds fewer calories. The results of baking with SugarLeaf were good enough to win the Editor’s Pick from Progressive Grocer magazine.

If you want to know how to substitute stevia for sugar in baking, just look at the conversion chart. If your recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar, the sugar can be substituted with ⅓ cup of SugarLeaf. The SugarLeaf will provide all the baking benefits of sugar but with 66% fewer calories.
