What is Splenda made from?
Splenda, an artificial sweetener, is mainly derived from Sucralose ( Chemical Formula C12H19Cl3O8 ). In addition to this, It also contains Maltodextrin and Dextrose.
Kroger's Apriva package is right next to the Splenda package suggesting that they are the same. However, the Splenda package has a statement that Splenda is "suitable for people with diabetes". There is no such claimer on the Apriva package. Therefore, should diabetics use it in the place of sugar as they do with Splenda? It is a very important question and needs to be addressed on the package itself.
That would be Splenda. I read this on a site: "Splenda is not sugar, and it is not natural. The sweetening ingredient in Splenda is sucralose, which is made using a multi-step chemical process that substitutes chlorine on the final sweetener molecule." Donkersloot adds that the addition of chlorine, not sugar, is what makes sucralose indigestible to the body. Found it on - www.doityourself.com/stry/sugarsubstitutes
