I made this last night, I used splendra blend. Only 3/4 cups but it is still too sweet. Will cut it down to 1/2 cup next time. Other than that it is delicious

If you make your own buttermilk adding one tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinegar to one cup of milk is the phosphorus and potassium as high as the buttermilk?? Dietitian comment: Yes, the potassium and phosphorus differ only by a few milligrams. Be aware that commercial buttermilk may have added sodium. Some brands may contain phosphate additives making phosphorus higher.
