When using stevia in foods, remember that it not only sweetens but also enhances the flavour of foods.  If you try to use stevia in something with little or no flavour (ie vanilla mousse which has very a subtle flavour) it will get “lost” and will be unsuccessful.  Where stevia shines is in foods with strong or bold flavours such as chocolate, coffee, lemon, berries, cheeses, sauces, dressings, etc.
Pure-le Natural Spoonable Stevia One to OneTM is the easiest way to use stevia in recipes.  Simply use the same amount of Spoonable Stevia One to OneTM as you would regular sugar, and add an additional 10% more liquid than the recipe calls for.  What could be easier? The additional liquid is to compensate for the fact that stevia doesn’t “melt” like sugar.
Pure-le Natural’s other forms of stevia can easily be used for your cooking and baking needs.  Both Stevia Concentrated Liquid and Stevia Concentrated Powder are for replacing sugar in your recipes.  When cooking, just substitute Stevia Concentrate according to the conversion chart below.  Use Stevia Concentrated Liquid for liquid recipes (soups, sauces, stews, preserves) and Stevia Concentrated Powder for everything else.
When baking, follow the conversion chart below along with one other adjustment.  In order to make up for the volume lost through replacing a cup of sugar with only 1/4 teaspoon of Stevia Concentrated Powder, you need to add unsweetened apple fiber.
To make unsweetened apple fiber place unsweetened applesauce in a strainer lined with cheescloth.  Place the strainer in a bowl and let sit overnight in your refrigerator.  In the morning you will have apple fiber (in the cheescloth) and apple juice (in the bowl).
Replace each cup of sugar in your recipie with 1 cup of apple fiber, as well as 1/2 teaspoon of Stevia Concentrate Powder.  This will replace both the sweetness and the volume which would otherwise have come from sugar.  An additional benefit to using this method is that you can reduce the oil content in your baking, as the apple fiber will create a more moist finished product than would have been had you used any sweetener other than stevia.
