What is Sucralose?
Sugar-free and "calorie-free" foods and beverages typically employ Sucralose, a white, odorless, water-soluble artificial sweetener. Foods prepared with sucralose retain their sweetness under a variety of situations and temperatures, as it is 600 times sweeter than table sugar.
Many foods and beverage products use sucralose because it is a no-calorie sweetener, is safe for diabetics and nondiabetics alike, and does not affect insulin levels. However, the powdered form of sucralose-based sweetener product Splenda contains 95 percent bulking agents' dextrose and maltodextrin, which do affect insulin levels, so it is not recommended for diabetics to use this product. Other artificial or natural sweeteners, such as acesulfame potassium, aspartame, or high-fructose corn syrup, can be substituted for or used in conjunction with sucralose.
