Canderel Granulated Sweetener and Tablets

Canderel has been around for a long time now. They were one of the first substitutes for sugar that gave dieters an alternative to saccharin based sweeteners. Canderel contains maltodextrin and uses aspartame and acesulfame-K to provide the sweetness but doesn't leave any unpleasant aftertaste.

The tablets are for your hot drinks and the granulated version is designed to be sprinkled onto cereals and used in cooking. In common with many sugar substitutes, the granulated form tends to 'froth' slightly once it makes contact with liquids.

Packs of canderel tablets are available in 100s, 300s or 500 refill packs. Jars of granulated come as 45g or 75g jars. One of the newer additions to the Canderel family are Canderel Vanilla Sticks. These are individual sachets of granulated sweetener mixed with ground vanilla grains - just perfect for a vanilla latte. Each sachet is the equivalent to two teaspoons of sugar and contains only 7 calories compared with around 40 for sugar.
