Though the FDA approved the use of Splenda as a sweetener in foods and some claim it is the perfect sugar substitute, others claim it is unsafe and has more in common with pesicides than table sugar. Though it is considered "natural," the term natural has no meaning when used on food labels, so that is misleading. Splenda is the trade name for sucralose, a synthetic (man made) compound discovered in 1976 by scientists in Britain who were seeking a new pesticide formulation. While it is true that the Splenda molecule starts out as sucrose, three of its hydroxyl groups have been replaced by three chlorine atoms.

The truth is, the safety of Spenda (sucralose) is not yet known. More studies are needed to determine its safety, especially long-term safety.

A packet of Splenda contains 1 gram of Splenda (an artificial sweetener, which is not sugar). Because Splenda is sweeter than sugar, a Splenda packet provides the sweetness of two packets of sugar.
