American Health Foods & Ingredients: Sucralose Sweetener  

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.

Ingredients

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. Sucralose is stable under heat and over a broad range of pH conditions, making it ideal for cooking.

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.
