It's a healthy, great-tasting alternative to sugar that is low in calories and carbohydrates, so you can feel good about enjoying the sweet taste that you love. Sucralose, the low calorie sweetening ingredient in SPLENDA®, is not a carbohydrate and has been shown in studies to have no effect on blood glucose control or insulin levels. SPLENDA® Granular and SPLENDA® Packet products contain an insignificant amount of carbohydrate and calories per serving, so when used in reasonable amounts, should not impact blood glucose levels. SPLENDA® can be used almost everywhere sugar is used - in cooking, baking, and sweetening. It's suitable for everyone.
