I didn't realize though that it's made with cornstarch. If you are watching your carbohydrate intake, this is not the product you are going to want to use in quantity.
I would recommend buying the regular Ideal and running it through your food processor (or blender/coffee grinder) and using that as a powdered sugar sub. You won't get the thickening and glossy finish of the cornstarch-based product though.
I use and love the regular Ideal, just did not find this product satisfying for our nutritional needs.
I had already tried Ideal in coffee and tea, and found that it was, for me, the most acceptable sugar substitute I had tried. It tastes very much like regular sugar, with the least perceptible aftertaste of any other sweetener I had tried. I hoped I had found a way to enjoy cookies and cakes again.
Alas, no. Since Ideal does not carmelize like sugar, so even though I followed the package directions, cookies were dry and grainy instead of soft and chewy, and cakes were either too flat and dense or too floury to be called delicious.
I'm sure a lot of people will buy and try this product for baking, and perhaps the company which produces it will make some money off of it, but unless others' results from baking with Ideal differ substantially from mine, not too many will continue to buy it.
