Is it as Sweet as Sugar?


Problem: How do Sugar Substitutes compare to Sugar when baking cookies?

Hypothesis: If I use SPLENDA when baking cookies, then it will taste almost or even the same as the cookies with regular sugar?

Conclusion:Most people Preferred the cookies made with real sugar rather than the cookies with Sucralose. Many people thought that the Sucralose cookies had a terrible after taste.

Procedure: Watch this video in order to view the procedure

Research/Background:SPLENDA: A no calorie sweetener also known as sucralose. It is used for a healthy diet in order to reduce the calories and carbs. This sweetner does however have a sugar like taste. Splenda is a brand name for the sweetner Sucralose. Splenda starts as sugar, but then is transferred into a noncalorie sweetener. 1 cup of SPLENDA is equal to one cup of sugar

Variables: Independent: Type of sugar usedDependent: taste preference

Acknowledgements: I would like to thank my mom for getting me all of the supplies, and encouraging me along the way. I would also like to thank Mrs. Kopels for helping me with all of the questions and difficulties I had.

IB Learner ProfileAn IB learner profile I displayed during my experiment was being an inquirer. My whole experiment was all about asking questions. I had to ask people their preferences on cookies and record my observations.
