The Truth About Splenda?
The other day I got an email in my in box for an organization called The Truth About Splenda. It is a good site for information about Splenda and it's sweet constituent Sucralose. We get several calls everyday about Splenda and while we are not here to give medical advice here's a few quotes from the The Truth About Splenda web site. You be the judge.
"Is there anything then to criticize about sucralose? Perhaps some of the marketing approaches that have hyped the safety of this compound by referring to the fact it is made from "natural sugar." What a substance is made from is irrelevant; what matters is what the final product is. Its properties are determined not by its ancestry but by its molecular structure. Hydrogen gas, for example, can be made from water but it would be absurd to suggest it, therefore, has the same safety profile. It's a different substance, just like sucralose is different from sugar. Incorporation of three chlorine atoms into the sugar molecule converts it into a totally new substance."
The Montreal Gazette, July 25, 2004 Joe Schwarcz, McGill University 's Office for Science and Society
"In a simple sentence, you would just as soon have a pesticide in your food as sucralose because sucralose (Splenda) is a chlorocarbon. The chlorocarbons have long been known for causing organ, genetic, and reproductive damage."
Dr. Janet Starr Hull, from the December 2003 issue of The Healthy Newsletter.
“It seems I got it wrong. It seems Splenda's sucralose is not sugar. It seems Splenda tastes like sugar because it’s infused with a sweet-tasting synthetic compound. Turns out the full rainbow of colored packets have one thing in common: chemicals. Heck, I'm sure I eat a ton of stuff with chemicals, so why do I care? Because Splenda’s marketing--not the least of which J&J’s clever use of the Sugar logo in some ads--suggests it’s a sugar product and that suggestion capitalizes on assumptions that it’s natural. It’s not and I feel duped.”
