About SPLENDA® Brand Sweetener
SPLENDA® Brand Sweetener and Sucralose
SPLENDA® Brand Sweetener is the commercial name for sucralose - a molecule discovered over 33 years ago that gives SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener Products their sweetness. Sucralose is made through a patented process that starts with sugar and changes it into a no-calorie, non-carbohydrate sweetener. The result is a sweetener that tastes like sugar, without any of sugar's calories. And like sugar, it stays sweet even when used in cooking or baking.
Sucralose has been the subject of more than 110 scientific studies that were conducted over a 20-year period. Sucralose is one of the most extensively tested food ingredients and is approved for use in more than 80 countries. It's used as the sweetening ingredient in more than 4,000 food, beverage and nutritional products worldwide.
SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener is available in three forms: packets, which can be used to sprinkle on foods or stir in beverages; granulated, which measures and pours like sugar; and, SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener Minis - a tablet form for on-the-go convenience.
