Diabetic Artificial Sweetener 4 Pesach & Recipes? Please help!

gainwisdom | Mar 31, 2013 01:49 PM

My father is a Diabetic - Type 2.

Where can I find a Kosher for Passover Artificial Sweetener that is sold in a *normal size bag* instead of individual packets?

The only Kosher L'Pesach artificial sweeteners I have seen have strictly been in the kosher stores, and are ONLY sold in individual packets (ex: Sweet N Low & Lieber's Sweetees). Since I saw the Sweet N Low @ the Kosher store was marked "Kosher for Passover," but only sold in individual packets, I passed on buying it and I decided to go to the *regular market to pick it up since I needed a LARGE size for baking --- sadly, I discovered that at the grocery store, Sweet N Low was NOT marked Kosher for, I came home empty handed...and it was TOO late to go back to the kosher store since it was Erev Pesach. So frustrating!

If you click on Rabbi Eidlitz's Pesach Guide
and scroll to page 20 where it lists SWEETENER - all it says is "Syncal Saccharin"....I couldn't find this active ingredient anywhere....

Also, when I finally locate this product, hopefully, with YOUR help ;-) - what Diabetic Pesach recipes do you recommend?? I would be so grateful for any advice as I want my father to be able to enjoy Pesach and not feel deprived!

With many thanks! And Chag Sameach! :)
