Just Like Sugar® has the same sweetening power as sugar pound for pound. The product is measured by weight and not by volume. If your recipe calls for one pound of sugar use one pound of Just Like Sugar®
Just Like Sugar® pH level in some recipes may drop under 3.5 and will change from a long chain length polymer to a shorter chain product. This makes the product a fructan instead of what is described as fiber. So in reality you get a change but in terms of calories, of carbs, of glucose reactions there is no change. The only change that might be noticeable would be a lowering of the gel structure in high content levels, i.e. 30% by weight.
Just Like Sugar® will absorb 4.5 times its weight in liquid such as water, milk etc. In some recipes you may have to add more liquid to obtain the desired consistency.
The fiber in Just Like Sugar® acts as its own thickening agent. In some recipes there will be no need to add thickeners such as Baking Powder, Corn Starch or Cream of Tarter.
