Artificial sweeteners (saccharin, aspartame and acesulfame-K) were used to replace sugar in the preparation of sweet bread and biscuits. The bread recipe contained 10% sugar or artificial sweetener equivalent in sweetness to 10% sugar. The specific vol. of loaves containing artificial sweeteners (3.57-3.61 ml/g) was comparable to that of control bread (3.59 ml/g), although both loaf wt. (133.30-135.40 vs. 147.70 g for controls) and loaf vol. (480-490 vs. 530 ml) were lower. Crust colour was light brown, compared with brown for control bread. For biscuits, the adverse effects of artificial sweeteners on biscuit dough properties, colour, crispness and spread factor were overcome by using 20% sorbitol in place of sugar in the formula. Tables show the effects of using 0, 10, 20 or 30% sorbitol on quality factors of biscuits (colour, surface, crispness, wt., width, thickness, spread ratio and spread factor) for each artificial sweetener. The sweetness intensity of sweet bread and biscuits containing artificial sweeteners was compared to the control bread and biscuits. At present, addition of artificial sweeteners in bread and biscuits is prohibited in India.
