If I have chance i'll try to grab the name of it for you. Something makes me wanna believe it was a Splenda brand, but dont quote me on that.
Oh wow! I hadn't seen that yet.
I can't wait to find it and try it out. It's probably not around here yet though... we get things slower in the midwest.
I actually have some in front of me right now.
It is called "Ideal Low Calorie Sweetener Confectionery". The ingredient list is "Xylitol, Maltodextrin, corn starch and Less than 0.05% sucralose for added sweetness". It states on the bag that it measures cup for cup like powdered sugar and is suitable for people with diabetes, "Frost without Sugar". Distributed by Heartland Sweeteners in Carmel, IN. It is also Gluten Free. Comes in a resealable 16 oz. white with green bag with pictures of iced cupcake tops on the front.
My husband recently found out his is a type 2 diabetic, so I bought this to make frosting for his cakes but I haven't had a chance to try it yet. Will have to soon because I think it would be a great advantage to be able to offer sugar-free options for our cakes.
Here is a picture of the bag.
