The Bikini Chef Susan Irby shares when it is appropriate to replace sugar with an artificial sweetener.

Chef Susan Irby:
Artificial sweeteners, when it comes to baking or a lot of foods, I actually do use some artificial sweeteners in a couple of my dessert recipes, but what I do is I use them in moderation or a very small quantity and I try to use them in combination with the real sugar.

But some people are just hardcore, don’t want any of these artificial sweeteners, and I don’t blame you, you know, they don’t taste like sugar. I don’t care what they say; they don’t taste like real sugar and they do have a different consistency and there are a lot of different schools of thought on how they affect your body. So, if you don’t like it then leave it out.
