    sorry to burst your no calorie bubble... buttttt...


    "Splenda/sucralose is simply chlorinated sugar; a chlorocarbon. Common chlorocarbons include carbon tetrachloride, trichlorethelene and methylene chloride, all deadly. Chlorine is nature's Doberman attack dog, a highly excitable, ferocious atomic element employed as a biocide in bleach, disinfectants, insecticide, WWI poison gas and hydrochloric acid.


    "Sucralose is a molecule of sugar chemically manipulated to surrender three hydroxyl groups (hydrogen + oxygen) and replace them with three chlorine atoms. Natural sugar is a hydrocarbon built around 12 carbon atoms. When turned into Splenda it becomes a chlorocarbon, in the family of Chlorodane, Lindane and DDT.


    Do the Makers of Splenda Know Something They Aren't Telling You?

    watch that video and read the article... just another artificial sweetner thats doing more harm then good... stick to natural stuff like sugar in the raw

    another intersting article

      Hmmm...I just sent this over to my FI. He has a PhD in Chemistry, I am very interested in what he has to say. I will let you all know.

              As a low carb diet follower, I swear by Splenda in the later cycles of the program. I would be VERY interested in anything your FI can find out or offer in addition to the original post Yari.

                    Here is his statment:

                    What about dangerous chlorinated species such as sodium chloride.....aka salt.

                    Beyond that I'd have to do some research into the process, how strongly bound these chlorides are bound to backbone. The other species discussed are highly polar, which makes them more toxic. If the chlorinated sugar molecule is symmetrical, it is much less polar, and therefore less likely to be toxic. Plus I would think the FDA would have something to say about a new material on the market such as this. Just guessing.....
