“First we were pink
Then we were blue…..
Now we’re yellow, through and through!”
Splenda is that rare item made BETTER by a bit of (semi) genetic engineering. Don’t be afraid though – no other product is combined with sugar to make Splenda Granulated. As mentioned in “How Splenda Is Made”, above, hydrogen atoms are removed from the sugar molecule, and replced by
Chloride atoms. This process takes away 99% (or is that 100%?) of the caloric value of the sugar! : ) And what they say is TRUE: It’s made from Sugar, so it TASTES like sugar!
Although it is msore expensive to buy SPLENDA Granulated, (in bags), it may well be worth it, if you have diabetes. I have noticed that the carry-with-you PACKET version of SPLENDA, contains DEXTROSE…..another form of sugar. That, (I believe), is why SPLENDA in packets is a “free food” for diabetics, for up to four packets……only. (Any food ingredient ending in “…ose” is a
sugar.) “Sucralose” is the name given to “SPLENDA’S” semi-genetically-engineered sugar…..so of course it is one of the ingredients, in both forms of SPLENDA — ending, of course, in -OSE. But DEXTROSE appears as an ingredient ONLY in the packet form of SPLENDA. It’s NOT in the bag form!
When I mentioned all this to a SPLENDA represntative, she said it was definitely OK to use the bagged form for sweetening drinks, as well as for baking. But that the bagged form will FIZZ, slightly, when put into drinks. This is normal….but somewhat of a shock if you’re not prepared for it. So — be prepared!
As it is so much more expensive to use the bagged , (baking) SPLENDA granuals for sweetening drinks, than the “carry-with you” packets, (and since I was somehow able to lose 40 pounds — due in no small part to my use of SPLENDA! –and so (horray!), lose my incipient, “Type 3” diabetes), I find I can use both kinds of SPLENDA, with no ill-effects. I find I buy one 700 packet SPLENDA, to every 3 or 4 large packages of granulated, bagged SPLENDA, that I buy.
Recently, (in the 400 PACKET container), the people at SPLENDA have come up with some cute, clever little sayings that uplift the mood, and often bring a smile to one’s lips. Examples: “It’s better to have sprinkled and lost than never to have sprinkled at all”. “Have A Sprinkle And A Smile.” “One small yellow packet for man, one giant smile for mankind.” “Let Your Creative Sprinkles Flow”,
The people who make SPLENDA are both genuises, (finding a way to replace hydrogen atoms with chloride atoms), and creative, (see clever sayings, above.) Maybe not the same people — but they all work for the same company. My mounth curves up, (in a smile!) to them! : )
Good value, great taste!
Splenda is cool
Splenda is wonderul
Great price for splenda!
Splenda is an excellent sugar substitute.
Always hits the spot
My husband can’t tell the difference!
Better price than the supermarket
Item is great, price is laughable
A single 9.6 oz bag is available at Wlmart (yeah, it sucks) for about $7.
Good product, but be wary of the hidden calories and carbs
If you want a sweetener for baking, use a liquid Sucralose sweetener.
The Only Sugar Substitute Without The Scary Health Warnings
Splenda is multiple times sweeter than the previous sugar substitutes. Unlike saccharin, Splenda does not have a metallic aftertaste.
Another advantage is that Splenda is stable under heat and can be used for baking.
It really does taste like real sugar!

Tastes better than sugar! Impressive!
good for those who use a lot of splenda
Almost good as real
Great Diabetic Friendly Sweetener! Highly Recommended!
Like most diet products it is not perfect and Splenda does not taste quite as good as regular sugar, but it is as close as we have found. It is really very satisfying and has no calories as well.
It’s SPLENDA FOR ME~~~~~YUM
It’s great for baking and you use it measure for measure the same. I love it in my coffee.
The other popular sweetener that I cannot say name has a lot of side effects for some people Me being one of them. I get no ill effects from Splenda and it leaves no unpleasant aftertaste.
