I have made a few home made syrups for my soda, made cream soda and root beer using root beer extract. I have used normal baking sugar and it seems to almost not mix well with the flavor. You can taste the sweetness of the sugar separately from the flavor of the soda, it is kinda hard to explain but something seems off. For example for the root beer I made, you could taste the sugary sweetness and the root beer flavor individually, instead of it just tasting like root beer soda. What sweeteners do you guys use to carry the flavor better? I have considered using brown sugar for root beer or light corn syrup. Also I have read a bit about Maltodextrin and am wondering if maybe that is what my syrups are missing, it seems it is meant to give the soda body and to carry the flavor. What are your opinions on sweeteners and maltodextrin, and where can I get it?
