SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, like most no-calorie sweeteners, meets FDA standards for no-calorie foods (<5 calories per serving).

SPLENDA® Brand Sweetener, or sucralose, has no calories. Sucralose is the no-calorie sweetener in all marketed SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener Products. Like many other marketed no- and low-calorie sweetener products, SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener Products meet FDA standards for no-calorie foods (<5 calories per serving). SPLENDA® Sugar Blend and SPLENDA® Brown Sugar Blend products are different products that provide a unique blend of sucralose and, respectively, white or brown sugar. These products are specifically designed for use in baking, where sugar can be needed for browning or for retaining product moisture, and not just for sweetness. Your patients can use these products with ease to make great tasting, lower sugar products, while reducing their added sugar intake.
