    About the book:

    According to the USDA’s new guidelines, we should be consuming half as much sugar in order to thwart the current obesity crisis and numerous other public health issues. The test kitchen faced this challenge head-on, starting with the researching the science of sugar and alternative sweeteners and ending months later with the best low-sugar recipes you will ever taste.

    Apple Pear Pie
    Chai Oat Scones
    Chocolate Chip Cookies
    Holiday Cookies
    Polenta Cake with Honey and Rosemary
    Vanilla Frozen Yogurt

    In side-by-side taste tests, people actually preferred the recipes made with less sugar since the alternative sweeteners had deeper, more nuanced flavors than granulated sugar. An extensive introduction section summarizes everything we learned during our research. Before-and-after sugar comparisons appear on every recipe page, and full nutritional information is listed in the back of the book.
