Popular Sugar Substitute Healthy?


I was inspired to write this article because of a conversation I had with a good friend.  The statement to me was something like this, “Splendid” is the best natural sweetener for those in search of something other than potentially dangerous Aspartame products.”  And of course, I stated, “no way man could have produced an altered anything that would be good for the consumer.” We’ll we both agreed to disagree, I then said you’ve inspired me to get further educated in the matter and then went our merry ways.

     This drew a huge question in my head because after reviewing the product contents, it looks good on the surface, because it is basically a sucrolose/dextrose natural sugar composition.  However, my model has always been, anything natural and changed by man has to be bad for consumers in the long run.  So of course, I could not let this stand in my head unanswered to self.

     The next question that immediately followed… Could man have possibly created an artificial sugar replacement that would be equal to natural table sugar if all sugar now consumed was Splendid?  My hunch after just a bit of research was correct.
