Sweetener's

Hi all
I’m looking to make a 100ml bottle of this

Problem is… I can’t get hold of the ECX sweetener

Just wondering if there are any other options with regards to sweeteners which I could consider

ECX sweetener is sucralose so why they used tpa and ecx im not sure just use 1pct of whatever sucralose you have or if you have Cap Super Sweet try .5 pct

The Marshmallow you already got in the recipe serves as a sweetener as well. You could up the MM a little to make it even sweeter. And besides i’m not sure you actually need 1% with sucralose in that recipe.

You could also put a little meringue in there. Marshmallow and Meringue are good sweeteners.

If you want it screaming sweet, use Champagne or Sparkling Wine but go easy or it will take over.

Ah thanx all for the replies
I used 1% TPA sweetener and came up fine

The reason for two sweeteners was because tpa is apparently quite harsh above 0.5%

Sparkling wine is in my order I’m receiving on Friday. Good to know about the sweet factor.

It’s like karo syrup sweet. Go easy, start at 1%.

I saw Sorbitol at a local pharmacy, a kind of big bottle and I thought wow big sweetener, then as I bend down to pick it up I notice the word laxative in small print. I thought Sorbitol was a sweetener used in like, toothpaste and chewing gum. Does anyone know? I didn’t buy it or anything, and surely would not use it in mixing, just curious.

Most sweetners, if consumed in excess, can have a laxative effect. Some people are more sensitive to it than others so the amount needed to cause this varies.

Learnt this after consuming too many packets of sugar free cough sweets once :laughing:

I really can’t imagine downing a cup of Sorbitol to go potty.

I just tried some juice I put 1 drop of sweetener in it and it steeped for 3 months and it’s all I can taste. It’s crazy when you get away from using sweeteners how well your taste buds repair themselves. I’d say if you had to have some sweetener to get ya off the stinkies then I’d def say pick up the pyrue stevia it is the cleanest i’ve worked w/ the one I was speaking of was probably sucralose which is total crap but I guess I wanted to revisit it and now I have and it was so gross coated my mouth and tongue disgusting crap.

Yea at this time Stevia is the cleaner options. I have tried a few others as well but I think it’ll pan out to preference in the end.
