Carefully Consider the Alternatives

Carefully Consider the Alternatives

Sucralose (includes Splenda brand): It is 500 times sweeter than sucrose, stored in body fats, and does not affect blood sugar levels. Its use is too new to know the long-term effects, but it appears the most promising and is the best one for cooking.

Aspartame (includes Equal, Nutrasweet brands): Several studies have found it has adverse health effects. This sweetener stays in your body longest, and it cannot be heated – or it turns into formaldehyde.

Saccharin (includes Sweet'N Low brand): Long-term data suggest it may be one of the safest sweeteners, even if some of the data is not positive.
