SPECIAL NOTE: When a specific brand name of artificial sweetener is used, you can use the equivalent of the one you use. For example, a tablespoon of Splenda is equal to a tablespoon of sugar, so you would use your sweeteners equivalent to one tablespoon of sugar. I use Nutrasweet or it's generic equivalent, so I would use three small tablets. Be aware though, that if the recipe calls for cooking AND it requires the artificial sweetener to be added prior to cooking, then you need the special sweeteners that tolerate heat well, such as Splenda.

Also, be aware that although great effort has been made to get the nutritional analysis of calories, cholesterol and saturated fat correct, the concentrations within ingredients can change from one manufacturer to the next. For example, some cocoa powder has 0% saturated fat, while other manufactures turn it out with 7% and even 10% saturated fat. One really needs to be alert to the food analysis given on food items by the manufacturer and buy accordingly.

Also, please do not rely on the food composition tables given for each recipe, they are a guide only!
