Are SPLENDA® Sweeteners suitable for use by people with diabetes?

“SPLENDA® Sweetener Products are suitable for people with diabetes as part of their healthy everyday diet. SPLENDA® Sweeteners contain sucralose which is a calorie free and carbohydrate free sweetener. The body does not recognize sucralose as a sugar. In fact, clinical studies have shown that sucralose does not affect blood glucose levels, insulin, or HbA.

Like other low calorie sweeteners on the market, the granulated product contains a small amount of carbohydrate (0.5grams) per serving, which comes from maltodextrin, an ingredient that provide needed volume and texture. Spoon for spoon, SPLENDA® Granulated is as sweet as sugar, but has just 1/8 the calories and carbohydrate of sugar.

SPLENDA® Sweet Mini also has the same sweetness as a 5g teaspoon of sugar and is calorie free!

If you’d like to find out more about sucralose, the NHS website provides a comprehensive overview of the studies into the use of sucralose. More information can be found at the following link:
