Week 10: Sugar-free Cookies
The sugar replacement TruSugr™ challenge series ends with one of the most popular snacks in the USA, cookies. Whether a quick after school snack, an afternoon pick-me-up from the break room, or a dessert, cookies are a common treat.
For our testing, we both reduced and eliminated the sugar in chocolate chip cookies.

Reduced Sugar (RS):
- RS Chocolate Chip Cookie: A great cookie, with excellent balance of sweetness at 40% less sugar. Our CEO wouldn’t stop eating these.
- SF Chocolate Chip Cookie: This was a delicious cookie that had a bit more of a chewy texture that many panelists enjoyed. Should the CPG company want it crispier, there are all-natural ingredients that could achieve the desired results.

- SF Chocolate Chip Cookie: cost-savings is 91% as compared to sugar cane
