My 5-Day Experience With No Sugar-Are Artificial Sweeteners Hazardous To Your Health?
After searching for a diet I can actually follow (and afford) in order to lose a few pounds, I decided on one in which I would be limiting my carb intake and following a "no sugar" regime.  I love sweetened iced tea and have a weakness for Hershey's chocolate milk, so I knew this would be hard for me.  I had no problem watching out for the bad carbs, but banning all sugar was a scary experience for me.  I am not one who can continuously drink plain water all day, even …

Splenda is quite possibly the most digusting thing to ever be created. Yes, CREATED - as in, inside a lab.      I used to have Splenda occasionally in coffee drinks - I have no idea why. The first time you ever try Splenda, you can taste its weird metallic flavor. Over time you get used to it, but I remember always feeling this strange dry aftertaste in my mouth - it was almost like Splenda was removing all the moisture from my mouth and I couldn't do anything to quench my thirst. …

Cancerous sugar made from metal? That's so beat.
review by . April 06, 2009
Every morning before work I grab a coffee at the McDonalds on the corner (I know, but it's really the only place in the 'hood that's remotely on the way to the train). The sales crew there is always perplexed when I explain (literally every morning I have to explain) that I don't want any sugar, sweetener, or "flavor" in my coffee. Once, the woman behind the register asked me "what it tasted like" without any additional ingredients. Umm, it tastes "like coffee!"  I don't understand why …

About this topic

Wiki

Splenda (pronounced /ˈsplɛndə/) is the commercial name and registered trade mark of a sucralose-based artificial sweetener derived from sugar, owned by the British company Tate & Lyle. Sucralose was discovered by Tate & Lyle and researchers at Queen Elizabeth College, University of London, in 1976. Tate & Lyle subsequently developed sucralose-based Splenda products in partnership with Johnson & Johnson subsidiary McNeil Nutritionals LLC. 

Since its approval by the United States government in 1998 and introduction there in 1999, sucralose has overtaken Equal in the $1.5 billion artificial sweetener market, holding a 62% market share. According to market research firm IRI Splenda sold $212 million in 2006 in the U.S. while Equal sold $48.7 million.

In April 2009 the International Trade Commission closed a patent infringement case that will permit Chinese manufacturers to produce copycat versions of Splenda products which will be sold under different brand names.

Splenda is available in granular and tablet form.



Energy (caloric) content

Sucralose has no caloric content, and Splenda products have a lower caloric content than sugar. The actual caloric content of a single-serving (1-gram packet) of Splenda is 3.36 calories, 31% of the calories of a single-serving (2.8-gram packet) of granulated sugar (10.8 ...
