"There is no sugar or sweetner listed among ingredients, but there is a note at the bottom saying the recipe was tested with Splenda brown sugar. How much?"

"I have an orange poppy seed dressing that contains fruit pectin as the thickening agent.

Stir together the following ingredients in a small bowl:
1/3 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon powdered fruit
pectin
1/4 teaspoon finely grated
orange peel
1/4 teaspoon poppy seed.
Cover and refrigerate at least three hours before serving."

"My husband has problems with cornstarch. Could I use flour instead, if not flour can you recommend something else?"
