Splenda, or sucralose, is a no-calorie, carbohydrate-free sweetener made from real sugar. It tastes like sugar when used in coffee or tea, sprinkled on fruit or cereal, used in baked goods or frozen desserts, or used in other recipes. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration, Splenda has no known side effects or adverse effects and offers a healthful alternative to sugar for people that want to reduce their calorie, carbohydrate or sugar intake.
Substituting Splenda for Sugar
According to the website of McNeil Nutritionals, the company that makes Splenda, it can be used just like sugar in recipes. Measure and pour it just as you would sugar. One cup of Splenda provides the same amount of sweetness as one cup of sugar. Adjust the amount of Splenda used when baking at high altitudes just as you would adjust the amount of sugar in a recipe.
