Studying the science of low-calorie sweeteners
Sucralose, also sold as SPLENDA® Brand Sweetener, is one of the most rigorously tested food ingredients in the world — and has been the subject of more than 110 scientific studies to establish its safety. It’s important to remember that, for a new food ingredient, industry does not set the guidelines for what type of research must be done. These are set by health and safety research authorities from around the world.
Major health, professional and government organizations — such as the American Heart Association, the World Health Organization, and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics — support the use of no and low calorie sweeteners. Read on for the latest findings from the scientific community, plus a closer look at the chemistry of sucralose!
