Well, we have good news! Our newest product, C&H® Light Sugar & Stevia Blend, makes it easy to cut calories without sacrificing sweet taste. The secret: a special blend of pure cane granulated sugar plus stevia and natural flavorings. We love it for all kinds of cooking and baking, and we know you will, too.
C&H® Light Sugar & Stevia Blend has no allergens and meets all Food and Drug Administration requirements. (We do add a bit of natural flavoring to mask the slight licorice taste of pure stevia and create the sweet taste you expect from all C&H® Sugar products.) Stevia has no effect on blood-sugar levels, but if you need to watch your blood sugar, we recommend that you consult your doctor before using C&H® Light.

Remember, you’ll use less C&H® Light than you would pure sugar. So just a tablespoon added to our Light Butternut Squash Soup or Light Creamy Tomato Basil Soup lends a bright, deep taste that balances the other flavors in the recipe. And you’ll never guess it isn’t pure sugar in our Light Sweet Potato Apple Casserole, a delicious cold-weather side dish that’s further “lightened” with low-cholesterol butter blend.

Lisa raves about Light Chocolate Mocha Brownies and especially Light Chocolate Pudding, which she made as comfort food – on a barbeque grill! – after Hurricane Sandy temporarily displaced her family. “It’s delicious—you absolutely don’t feel deprived,” she says.
You’ll appreciate the way C&H® Light creams with butter in slimmed-down versions of traditional favorites. Try dunking Light Mixed Berry Almond Biscotti in hot tea for an afternoon treat while the kids enjoy guilt-free Light Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies or Light Cinnamon Apple Crumb Cake with a tall glass of low-fat milk.

And Keep in Mind...
C&H® Light doesn’t caramelize the way pure sugar does, so for good results with caramel, it’s best to stick to pure sugar.

“C&H® Light was a wonderful new journey for me,” says Lisa, who’s experimented with just about every sweetener on the market. “It’s really the best of both worlds – a natural sweetener you’ll feel good about using!”
Quick tip: When they’re done, cookies and cakes baked with C&H® Light will appear lighter in color than their counterparts baked with 100% sugar. Don’t overbake!
