    In yesterday segment on sugar substitutes, it was said what the best substitutes are for certain things (ie cold drinks, baking, and hot drinks). To follow up on this, if a person is actually going to substitute regular refined sugar with one of these natural products, what is the equal exchange rate? Especially for the purpose of baking. Please reply.
