What is Sucralose?

Sucralose (also known as Splenda®) is a no-calorie sweetener used worldwide in more than 4,000 foods and drinks. With obesity increasingly common, many dietary guidelines are recommending that consumers choose foods and beverages that moderate their intake of sugars. Products sweetened with sucralose can help consumers achieve this goal, by reducing the amount of added sugar and calories in the diet.

Sucralose is helpful for people who enjoy sweet foods but are trying to reduce the number of calories that they consume or the amount of sugar in their diet. It is also an ideal sweetener for people with diabetes.

Millions of consumers around the world have been enjoying products sweetened with sucralose since it was first introduced into the marketplace over 15 years ago. Recognized medical experts support the safety of sucralose based upon the extensive body of scientific evidence.
