How is Sweet'N Low used?

Sweet'N Low is ideal for tabletop use and dissolves easily in hot and cold beverages. Sweet'N Low can be used as an ingredient for most of your favorite recipes and is useful in cooking, baking, freezing and preserving. Unlike other sugar substitutes, such as those that contain aspartame, Sweet'N Low does not lose its sweetness when it is heated, so there are no special processes required for substituting Sweet'N Low for sugar.
