Are there any sweeteners that contain fat?

Are there any sweeteners that contain fat? I would use sugar but it doesn't contain fat, and for what i am doing it must contain fat.

Thanks to who ever can answer my question :)

    You could just add fat to the sugars.

    sugar is a carbohydrate.so u can use

    Saccharin

    We all know what it is... Pink packets of "Sweet 'n Low" that sit on restaurant tables that we may have put in our coffee or tea at one time or another. Around for more than 100 years it is the oldest artificial sweetener, in 1977 the FDA required that all food containing Saccharin contain a warning label: "Use of this product may be hazardous to your health. This product contains saccharin, which has been determined to cause cancer in laboratory animals."

    In a study conducted by the National Cancer Institute during 1978 and 1979, it was concluded that heavy users of Saccharin, and products containing it such as diet soda, could be at an increased risk of developing bladder cancer. "Heavy use" was defined as "two or more 8-ounce servings of a diet drink per day," or "six or more servings of [packets of] sugar substitute per day."

    Saccharin, used long-term, does not promote good health, but if you must use an artificial sweetener (for example, if you are a diabetic), please choose Saccharin products over popular Aspartame-containing ones (see below!).

    note:

    As of May 9th, 2000 Saccharin was removed from the National Toxicology Report on Carcinogens as a possible cancer-causing chemical. You can read more on this at the following links.

    Sweetners are basically chemicals wich taste sweet, and thus do not strictly contain fat.

    Have you considered using any natural sweetners? Virgin coconut oil has a naturally slightly sweet taste and would probably take the addition of extra "sweet" pretty well.
