    Question Why no desserts available with sweetener?

    Recently I've been eating rice pudding and meringues, in moderation of course.

    But it got me wondering why you can't buy this kind of stuff made with sweetener rather than sugar.

    You often get low fat or reduced fat desserts, but not desserts made with sweetener instead of sugar.

    Is it because there's no demand for it, because it would be more expensive, or because the consistency would be different?

    I realise you could make these things yourself, but when you're busy that's a lot of trouble compared with buying off the shelf.

    People like things that taste good. You may think a dessert with sweetener taste good, but some ppl can tell the difference between a dessert made with sugar vs sweetener, and they much prefer the dessert with sugar.

    Plus, you wouldn't know how to enjoy food in moderation if you're eating a whole pie made with sweetener all the time.

    Are you sure the low/reduced fat desserts don't contain artificial sweeteners already? I thought that many did.

    In the UK here, and none of the supermarkets really have sugar free desserts, apart from jello which I don't like.

    Again not that I've found, there's loads of reduced fat products here, such as reduced fat rice pudding, custard or mousse, but none that I've found so far which have no sugar in.

    I think most people demand desserts that taste good, and they taste better with sugar.
    Also there's a stigma about artificial sweeteners being even worse for you than sugar.

    There are loads of sugar free desserts in the UK. Cookies, flap jacks, yoghurts, too many to mention.

    Check regular online shops and supermarkets.

    You can also check fitness oriented online shops like muscle food, my protein, predator nutrition etc.

    All the best.

    Yep there is ASDA here, but I'm yet to find no added sugar desserts. Here's an example of a search https://groceries.asda.com/search/No%20added%20sugar

    The only thing I could see is custard powder and Angel Delight which uses Maltodextrin instead.

    Please tell me a supermarket here where I can buy various sugar free deserts as I'll go out and buy some today!

    Well I know that :-) But I'm talking about low cal sweetener, like how a glass of cola has 140 calories and a glass of diet cola has a couple of calories. I realise a desert isn't going to be zero calories but would like to eat more deserts without the sugar.

    If you notice something like this, don't share your findings with the rest of the internet. Instead, start by jumping on the business opportunity and start making these sugar free desserts yourself.

    This might not be exactly what you are looking for, but I make sugar free jello pudding with Fairlife milk and top it with sugar free cool whip. You feel like you should feel guilty eating it...but the profile is the same as that of a cup of Fairlife milk (whole milk tastes best, and the fat free milk doesn’t work...messes up the flavor and texture) which is actually a rediculously healthy snack.

    Great-tasting, sugar-free, desert. Choose 2!

    I've ordered some protein pancake mix and yesterday I got some no-sugar squirty cream to top them with. Not really what I had in mind but should be OK.

    In the meantime it looks as though I'll have to stick with things like Angel Delight and rice pudding, etc and make do with the sugar!
