There is an extensive body of scientific research confirming the safety of SPLENDA® Brand Sweetener, and specifically the safety of sucralose, which is the sweetening ingredient in the original SPLENDA® Sweeteners.

Despite this rock-solid safety record, the internet is full of misinformation that has led to myths about SPLENDA® and low-calorie sweeteners in general. The misinformation is often based on research that uses unconventional or poorly designed methods, or draws conclusions which do not correspond with the totality of research that has been conducted.

Sometimes a new study that supposedly challenges decades of scientific research makes headlines. And when positioned as a single “new study” you may be left wondering if it is credible. To clear up any confusion you may have about the well-documented safety of SPLENDA® Brand Sweetener sucralose, here are the facts:   

Making Life Sweeter: 10 Reasons to Choose SPLENDA® Sweeteners


“A party without cake is just a meeting.” – Julia Child

I have to say that I agree with the dear, late Ms. Child. Cake matters! Cake tastes good. Who doesn’t like cake?

However, cake is traditionally made with a whole lot of sugar, as are other desserts such as cookies, candy, pies and pastries. Until the introduction of SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener in the US in 1998, it was nearly impossible to successfully make my favorite dessert recipes with significantly less, or no added sugar.

So yes, before you read on, I admit it. I am a huge SPLENDA® Brand fan. I have used no-calorie sweeteners as far back as my college days (when saccharin was the only option), but the introduction of SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener proved to me that I can “have my (less sugary) cake and eat it too.”

With SPLENDA® Sweetener Products, you can make almost anything… from sweets like cakes, cookies and pastries to soups and side dishes…without all the added sugar.

Here are 10 sound reasons why many people (including me!) choose SPLENDA® Sweeteners...

How to Motivate Yourself to Lose Weight in 5 Easy Steps

Weight Loss Motivation

You wake up, look in the mirror and realize you’ve gained a few pounds. You tell yourself, “Time to cut back! This time I really mean it!” So, maybe you skip breakfast, eat a salad for lunch and cook a mix of veggies and chicken for dinner, nibbling on protein bars and sipping smoothies during the day. Within a few days, you may find yourself in front of the TV with a pint of ice cream or a bag of chips.

Sound familiar? For so many dieters, the cycle repeats.

It’s time to wake up and get real on long-term plans for achieving and maintaining a healthy weight. Maybe weight loss motivation isn’t the only problem. Confidence, accountability and support are also key factors in losing weight. Allow me to help with your motivation for weight loss: You can do it, and here’s how! 

Recipes Made with SPLENDA® Sweeteners Instead of Sugar to Warm Your Tummy and Your Heart (You’ll Love Them!)

made with SPLENDA® Sweeteners

Depending on who you talk to, winter weather at times can be almost unbearable. For a large part of the country, freezing temps, snow-covered lawns, and icy roads are what we experience when we step out the front door. It’s not my favorite season by any means but it comes like clockwork, once a year. And as the old saying goes, “What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”

During winter, for whatever reason, many of us develop cravings for “comfort” foods that traditionally are high in sugar and fat (you know the ones I mean). So, when you arrive home after a morning of errands or from a long day at work or from an afternoon of sled-riding…and after you “de-bundle” (removing those puffer coats, cozy scarves and fleece-lined gloves), you may be looking to dig into some favorite cold-weather foods. However, it’s not a good idea to overindulge when you crave something sweet, warm and comforting.

If you haven’t started yet, now is a good time to start cutting back on your added sugar intake, as health experts recommend. So, to help you with easy substitutions for sugar, here are a few wonderful recipes made with SPLENDA® Sweeteners to make this winter.

We hope you enjoy them all, from unique hot chocolates to oven-baked treats that use apples and a SPLENDA® Sweetener instead of full sugar.
