Quick Answers

 

 

Can pickled beets be made with artificial sweeteners?


While both Equal (aspartame) and saccharin-based sweeteners are safe to use, the quality of any pickled product made with either of these sweeteners is poor. Equal quickly loses its sweetness when heated while saccharin-based sweeteners become bitter.
