Week 9: Sugar-free Cheesecake

The sugar replacement TruSugr™ challenge series continues with another popular version of cake: cheesecake. That delicious, indulgent treat that one famous company built their entire platform on, is beloved for its luscious texture and balance of sweet and savory flavor that melts perfectly with a buttery, graham cracker crust.


For our testing, we eliminated the sugar of both the crust and the filling, while maintaining the sought-after textures.

Sugar-free (SF):

  • SF Cheesecake: A decadent, creamy cheesecake was done to perfection with a gentle jiggle. Beyond the texture, the sweetness was a perfect blend throughout the taste experience including the crust. Another win!


Cost Comparison:

  • SF Cheesecake: cost-savings is 44% as compared to sugar cane
