Are there carbs in Splenda Sweetener?

There are a very small amount of carbs in Splenda, and other sweeteners When using a packet, the amount is negligible, but when baking and using large amounts, all those little packets add up. The amount will likely be negligible once you have divided it up between the servings you have, but the entire amount used in the recipe is not carb or calorie-free. That is always important to remember when baking for diabetics.

When you are reading nutritional information on Splenda, Stevia in the raw or other zero-calorie sweeteners. the amounts are usually for 1 tsp and so small that they are not required to list it. One cup is equivalent to 48 teaspoons, so it should be noted that it does have a few calories and carbs when using large amounts at one time.

How to Store Sugar Free Glaze

If you make your Sugar Free Glaze recipe with water, you may store it at room temperature for a couple of days.

If using juices or milk, always store it refrigerated.

If stored refrigerated, warm to room temperature and whisk or stir vigorously before using.

Helpful Tips

How do I make icing less sweet?

Sometimes when you are making sugar Free Icing or Sugar Free Glaze the taste can have some bitterness. I find this is a common issue when using sweeteners. An easy way to reduce the sweetness in icing is to add a pinch of salt. Only add a few grains at a time. Add a tiny bit, mix and then taste. It won’t remove all of the bittersweet but it will reduce the bitter flavour that can come from sweeteners.

How do I thicken Sugar Free Glaze when it is too thin?

The best way to thicken thin Sugar Free glaze is to add more sweetener. Add about a teaspoon at a time, mixing in between, until you get the desired consistency.

You can also add cornstarch. This changes the nutritional values, but it is very effective. Add only a small amount at a time and if you add too much add a little more liquid.

How do I make my Sugar Free Glaze thinner?

To keep the nutritional values the same in this sugar free glaze recipe, add a little more water. You can also use lemon juice.



If you prefer another sweetener brand, feel free to substitute it in this recipe. You may need to alter the amounts based on how dense your sweetener is. I still recommend pulling in a blender or food processor to get it as fine as possible. The only absolute no-no is liquid sweeteners of course.

Always keep in mind that not all sweeteners have the same nutritional information, some are sugar blends and contain sugar or sugar alcohols.


This is completely a matter of personal preference. I use water and sometimes half it with lemon juice. The only consideration to remember is any changes can alter nutritional values as well as consistency. If using orange juices or other fruit juices, try to use pulp-free.

When using dairy products in your sugar free icing glaze recipe, the unused rising and the finished baked good should be stored in the refrigerator.

Vanilla Extract

I recommend using clear Vanilla extract to keep the nice white colouring in the Sugar Free Glaze. If you prefer to have a different flavour, you can replace the vanilla extract with other flavoured extracts.

I hope you enjoy this easy recipe for Sugar Free Glaze.
