  • About


  • ½ teaspoon saccharin
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 pint distilled water or water boiled to precipitate lime
  • Heat to the boiling point and bottle


One teaspoon is equal to 1 teaspoon of granulated sugar. Use exactly as sugar, but in cooking custards and the like add when taken from the fire. Do not let it come in contact with tin or iron—use enamel, glass, china or silver ware and utensils, as iron and tin affect the flavor. For Uric Acid Patients.
