Sucralose (Splenda) is an artificial sweetener that’s been sold in the US since the nineties. The FDA categorized sucralose as safe, but since then, new research has called sucralose’s safety into question.
Recent rat studies suggest that sucralose may disrupt your gut bacteria.
Sucralose metabolites may build up in your fat cells, too, and researchers don’t know what those metabolites do.
Cooking with sucralose creates possible carcinogens called chloropropanols that you’re better off avoiding.
There haven’t been many studies on sucralose in humans, so it’s hard to say one way or another whether sucralose is okay to eat. There are much better-studied sweeteners that you can use instead of sucralose. Listen to this audio article on to find out which sweeteners are best.
