What is Sucralose?
Moreover, sucralose does not interfere with the sewage treatment process. It is pretty maddening. According to one study, sucralose is digestible by a number of microorganisms and is broken down once released into the environment. Other products that are known to contain sucralose: In fact, aspartame is less toxic than sucralose in terms of daily allowance by quite a lot.

Table salt contains clorine sodium cloride , yet is perfectly safe in reasonable amounts; and the danger comes, not from the clorine in table salt, but from the sodium in excessive table salt intake. The studies so far say sucralose is safe; and trying to scare everyone without controlled studies showing proof of harm is a real dis-service to the public.
Here is a post that will clear up the issue. If one eats 40lbs of sugar a day this could be an issue. In this case if one eats 40lbs of sucralose.
Now the article is very biased in several ways. FIrst, it does not clearly state that the issues arose in a study that was done on rats and was in far excess of what one would have in their lifetime. Second, the author does note that there are potentially severe chemicals in the sucralose. However, it is a misconception by saying that these are potentially dangerous by them selves. Yes, Chlorine is dangerous by itself.
So is breathing pure Oxygen. But when Oxygen is combined with other chemicals it provides the air we breathe and water we drink. I have the opposite problem. I can hardly find products made without sugar or aspartame or corn syrup and the like. I have found it pretty difficult to find a selection of products that use sucralose or stevia. It is pretty maddening.
Why all the sugar and all the salt. The food industry is trying to kill us all. There may indeed be problems with these artificial sweeteners.
Sugar not only causes obesity in high quantities each and every can of soda typically has 17 packets worth of sugar in it; how many do YOU drink a day? All I know is I have family members with Type 2 diabetes and no can of Coke or Pepsi is worth that living hell. Good luck with that.
It really tastes very similar to lemonade and only has a few calories per glass. So you either live with plain water that you might not want to ever drink because it tastes like nothing or minerals or you choose your POISON, be it sugar or artificial sweeteners.
Personally, I take my chance with the sweeteners and have occasional deserts made with real sugar but avoid sugary drinks entirely. The point is that some people are allergic to artificial sweeteners and they should avoid them. I am a bit concerned lately, however that Pepsi just changed over their diet colas to sucralose from aspartame.
This clearly changes the flavor. Diet Coke with Splenda has a bad aftertaste it tastes shockingly just like a teaspoon of sucralose if you taste it directly. It may taste better than saccharin and I personally think it works better in coffee and unsweetened juices better than aspartame, but IMO aspartame tastes better in soda at least until it expires.
For example, my mother stopped eating yogurt PERIOD because they changed her Yoplait Light over to Splenda and she says it tastes awful now and she really misses the original Yoplait Light with aspartame.
I wonder if Yoplait realizes how many customers they lost with that switch. She would do well to find something else to please her or get used to the taste, because Aspartame was extremely toxic … and the only reason it was ever passed by the FDA is that somebody greased some palms with green. These things DO cause health problems and cancer.
In fact, aspartame is less toxic than sucralose in terms of daily allowance by quite a lot. Aspartame has been on the market for ages. If it were toxic to anyone other than those allergic to it in everyday quantities 16 cans of diet pop I believe is the limit per day relative to dosage compared to only around for sucralose.
The studies you talk about were made and funded by the same company that produces this product. The studies cited are pier reviewed published works. This is not true for this article. If you are really interested in finding out more, there is a lot of information, at https: Many of the studies were designed to identify possible toxic effects, including carcinogenic, reproductive, and neurological effects. Reports of negative consequences in animal studies are commented on: This same dosage of sugar for even one day would have serious and immediate health effects or possibly kill a person without medical intervention.

Sucralose may be a trigger for migraines, according to a study published in the August, issue of ''Headache: Journal of Head and Face Pain. A study by Y.
Sasaki published in the ''Journal of Mutation Research'' concluded that high doses of sucralose led to DNA damage in the gastrointestinal organs of mice. The dose given was 2, mg per kg of body weight. Based on his study results, Sasaki recommended more extensive study of sucralose and 38 other food additives.
