Canderel has an extremely sweet flavour, with no aftertaste, which makes it an ideal spoon-for-spoon replacement for sucrose when making your favourite sweet or savoury recipes. It is also ideal for sprinkling on cereals and fruit or adding to dressings and dips.
The main benefit of Canderel is its low-caloric value. Each teaspoon of the sweetener contains just 2 calories and 0.47g of carbohydrates, while each tablet has zero calories and just 0.06g of carbohydrates.
By comparison, a teaspoon of granulated sugar contains around 16 calories.
What is aspartame?
Aspartame is the name of an artificial, non-carbohydrate sweetener which is used as a sugar substitute in a range of foods and beverages worldwide. It is roughly 200 times sweeter than sucrose (table sugar) and also provides a longer-lasting taste.
Aspartame is the main sweetening ingredient of Canderel tablets and granules, and can also be found in thousands of other foods, drinks and supplements sold worldwide.
