What is Sucralose?
- In short, sucralose is the generic Splenda® sweetener
- Zero Calorie • 600 times as sweet as sugar • Safe for cooking
Sucralose vs. Splenda
The artificial sweetener sucralose is the active ingredient in Splenda® sweeteners. Splenda is not truly “No Calorie” because it typically contains carbohydrate bulking agents – the FDA allows “No Calorie” claim when there is less than 5 Calories per serving. Our sucralose powder and liquid are truly Calorie-free.
Powder vs. Liquid
Pure sucralose is solid. Our powder is 100% sucralose – pure sucralose and nothing else. Any “Liquid Sucralose” is sucralose dissolved in water and other ingredients. There is no “pure liquid sucralose.” Our Liquid Sucralose sweetener contains 25% sucralose by weight.
- Powder is pure, whereas liquid contains water, citric acid, and preservatives.
- Powder is at 100% concentration (it may be easy to add too much when you need only a very small amount).
- Liquid may taste better because of the citric acid.
- Liquid may allow better amount control because of its lower concentration.
Pure Sucralose Powder: pure sucralose powder.
Liquid Sucralose: water, sucralose (25% of total weight), citric acid, sodium citrate, with potassium sorbate and sodium benzoate as preservatives.
- Zero Calorie
- High concentration
- Less aftertaste than other artificial sweeteners
- Can be used for cooking
- No carriers or bulking agents such as starch, dextrose, or maltodextrin
- 1 gram = 1.3 lbs. of sugar
- 1 oz. = 35 lbs. of sugar
- 3 drops = 2 tsp. of sugar
More About Sucralose
Sucralose is an artificial sweetener and is the active ingredient in Splenda® sweeteners. It is approximately 600 times as sweet as sucrose (table sugar), twice as sweet as saccharin, and four times as sweet as aspartame.

Allergy and health concerns: some people are allergic to sucralose. If you believe a physical discomfort is caused by sucralose consumption, please avoid sucralose-containing foods and beverages (and seek medical help if condition is severe). You can consider using another sugar substitute (we offer aspartame and Ace K) or even regular sugar. As for unknown long-term health effects, we cannot be held liable for selling an FDA-approved sweetener.
