What effects does xylitol have when used in place of sugar?
- Will replacing sugar with xylitol lower the calories in my candy?
- Does it have a laxative effect if eaten in quantity?
- Will my fruit gems benefit from other gums or thickeners added to the recipe? Or citric acid, wheat starch etc?
I am new to confectionery but making food stuffs and making cosmetics seems to be a kindred talent. Let's see if I am up to the task. Can't be too hard can it??? LOL
