splenda vs sugar (Read 55216 times)

Personally, I don't like any artificial sweeteners. Every one I've tried has a funny taste, and I just don't trust them. They also break 2 of the rules that I try to eat/cook by (from Food Rules by Michael Pollan)

1. Eat food. Though in our current state of confusion, this is much easier said than done. So try this: Don't eat anything your great-great-grandmother wouldn't recognize as food.

3. Especially avoid food products containing ingredients that are a) unfamiliar, b) unpronounceable c) more than five in number

I'm fairly certain my great great grandmother would not recognize splenda, aspertame etc. as food - and, once you look at the actual chemical in them instead of the brand name, good luck pronouncing it.

I'll stick with my sugar, thankyouverymuch Smiley

Have you all done any research on how dangerous these artificial sweeteners are? Seriously, avoid them at all costs.

I would never cook with splenda, i dont like the reviews all these non sugar and chemical based calorie free sugars provide... I say forget the calories, sugar tastes better and is better for you! Cool

Hi everyone,
lots of great comment in this post.
For me, we started using Splenda about 5 years and like it quite a lot. I guess our main intake is through our coffee. We had gotten so used to it, we were surprised one time a guest came to town and started making faces as she was drinking her coffee - turns out there is actually a pretty big difference in taste between splenda and sugar.

We've also tried stevia, more like tried to like it, but couldn't really get there. The taste seems perfectly made for putting it in tea, but for anything else it leaves that certain tang which doesn't always go with the food.

Somebody in this thread implied that sugar, even in moderation, was pretty bad for you. Could you tell me more about that? I was surprised to hear but want to find out more. I certainly assumed that in moderation it was no big deal.

Splenda is the commercial name of a sucralose-based artificial sweetener derived from sugar.

I tried using splenda with some of my baking but it just did not taste good to me.  But for making tea etc. it works very well.

you're right...let's take aspartame for example. Is very nocive.
