I’m looking for a “perfect” sweetener for my ejuice, I tried ethyl matol, TFA sweetener, but its not that sweetness like in those well known brands ejuices. So I’m asking you for advise. Thanx in advance.
There’s a thread on here that has a lot of good ideas for what to use to sweeten juice. You might check it out. At least it will give you a place to start.
some people use cotton candy flavors?
Cotton candy is basically EM in PG. Sweetener is sucralose (Splenda). Marshmallow, bavarian cream, caramel, dulce de leche, brown sugar, vanillas, cupcake/cake and meringue are all “sweet” options.
Yeah, I used cotton candy, marshmallow, burnt sugar, sweet cream as well, but is doesn’t give that “smooth” sweetness like let’s say… 5pawn liquids or ruthless. :-/
Try Capella’s super sweet or ecigsexpress sweetner both make a 10ml juice sweet with 2 drops.
Thx JoJo, quitter and Amy2for answer, will still testing.
Ever tried Stevia, they sell it in liquid form in health food stores and it is also used in some e-liquids.
Seems I replied too quickly here. Should have checked Jojo’s link first, stevia is mentioned in there. Have never tried it myself except in tea so I can’t vouch for it. Just know that taste is different for everybody
Thanx for info
I also bought the stevia from the health food store. It was good. Pricey but good. About 13$ a bottle for approx. 30 mls.
Sucralose, like JoJo has already said is used as a sweetener ( I it use sometimes ) Here’s a link to the Wikipedia page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sucralose
Stevia, as JVR asked is also a popular sweetener, here’s a link to that Wikipedia page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stevia
Some interesting facts about the discovery of Stevia.
My contribution is Agave nectar, once again the Wikipedia page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agave_nectar
I just realized that I should say that I think that relying on the flavoring to give the sweetness is probably the best way to go. Time is always your friend.
Good luck on your search. Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn
Do you use agave? Doesn’t that caramelize on your coils really quickly? I’ve put it in tea before but never thought of using it in e-liquid.
I did once, It was hard to control the sweetness for me personally. It is popular in some recipes, so I thought I’d mention it is all. I think that most sweeteners are coil gunkers.
I saw somewhere idk remember but what are y’all’s thoughts on sweetener causing
" toxic vapor " and honestly how could this be versus any of the other flavors moreover ? Is this an issue with coils and them producing a funky odor or any other issue as to why someone would think the sweetener would cause this ? Or the burning of chemical used as sugar ? Hmm curious if anyone has heard or read more in this ? Sounds like more BS to me.
I haven’t heard that, but I would imagine that burning sugar wouldn’t be real nice…it might definitely taste or smell toxic. LoL. I don’t know about sucralose. I should have paid more attention in chemistry. I guess the thing to keep in mind is this is harm reduction. Nobody’s saying inhaling any of this stuff is good for us…just better than cigarettes. I haven’t really found the need to use a sweetener. I kinda like stuff on the less sweet side and the flavors I use give enough sensation of sweetness for me. But, if I felt I needed something sweeter, I would use it.
I myself have learned to go that way as well.
I gather some person is lead to believe this but honestly I haven’t heard of this in any of the research that has been done albeit it does make sense. I am no chemist that’s for sure and was not ever in love with taking it the course either. Lol I like microbiology better.
Oh well back on topic. When I’ve made juices for my sub ohm tanks the only thing I’ve changed is the Nic level down to 2-3 Mg
