Substitution Chart

Please be advised: The alternative ingredients listed below are NOT guaranteed to work in every application.

As you’re undoubtedly aware, baking is like alchemy. The end result is based on the combination of the ingredients used, the amounts that are used, and how they all react together to heat. Likewise with cooking.

The alternatives listed below are a starting point when you have a sensitivity or allergy to an ingredient and need to try an alternative. Whether they work to your satisfaction will depend on how they are used and what your expectations are.

So yes, results will vary. But give the listed alternatives a try. If they work, fantastic! If the results are less than stellar, use the experience as a catalyst to try something else, or the listed alternative in a different way.

Make sense?

I hope this chart helps you re-discover the joy of cooking & baking through experimentation. 

Cheers from Nat
