splenda

I've read some articles that say splenda is bad, while some
doctors say it's OK. What's the general concensus? It is
highly chlorinated, so can't be that good. On the other
hand, they claim it doesn't get absorbed. On the other hand,
they say it is partly absorbed partly because it reacts with
food and becomes something else. To me, it only sweetens
food without adding any good taste, so sugar, in small
amounts seems a better solution.

I've never heard anything about it being bad.

Where were these articles published? Were they in peer
reviewed scientific journals? If I saw them in the New
England Journal of Medicine I would probably give them
credence. If I saw them in the Naitonal Enquirer I wouldn't.
Were the authors well qualified to make a judgment? Did they
give you sufficient evidence to back up their claims?

I'm not completely sure what this means -- don't most
sweeteners sweeten food without adding some other taste? But
if you don't like the taste of Splenda, then there's no
reason to use it. Use a product that you like.

Isn't this a repeat of the troll from a couple of weeks ago?

Splenda tastes the best to me. I rarely use anything else. I
don't care to hear all that **** that people say about
sweetners in their paranoid way. The best sweetner is the
one you like. Let me know when there is really hard evidence
any of these is "bad" ... I won't stop though, unless alot
of people are dying ... and then I'll think about a little
and move on like nothing happened ! I need relly hard
evidence that any sweetner is killing people ! Rainbow

Against the advice of a few fearmongers (who probably have
stock in Aspartame labs or whatnot), I use Splenda on
breakfast cereal and to me, it tastes very much like table
sugar, more than any other non-sugar sweetener. From what
I've read, the body doesn't recognize it and it's excreted
without impact. Considering all the negatives of refined
sugar, especially from my dentist's perspective, it's a
reasonable tradeoff IMO.

Consensus seems to be:

Equal/NutriSweet/any of the aspertame packets when you are
sweetening stuff like coffee, tea, or other non-sensitive
liquids. They are cheaper, too. Splenda for cooking and also
for the occasional treat-type food such as blueberries plus
cream. You get the grainy effect. More expensive stuff.

Odd.

Here in the UK, Splenda tabs and granules are about the same
as the equivalent aspartame products WRT price.
