What is Sukkralos?
Low- and no-calorie sweeteners like Sukkralos are a tool to help reduce the calories we consume from sugar. Sucralose is actually made from sugar, but it isn’t digested like sugar. In fact, most of the sucralose we consume is not absorbed by our bodies at all. This means that sucralose provides the sweet taste of sugar without calories.
How many calories?
Sucralose has NO calories.
Some sweeteners are “low-calorie” contributing negligible amounts of calories. Some are “no-calorie” contributing zero calories.
While sucralose provides zero calories, packets or products containing sucralose can have calories. Sometimes ingredients with calories are added for flavors and textures.
Is it safe?
Sucralose is one of 8 low- and no-calorie sweeteners permitted by the FDA for use in the US food supply. Each of the 8 has been rigorously tested and reviewed. The FDA approved sucralose for use in foods in 1998.
Who says it’s safe? Leading global health authorities such as the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), FAO/WHO Joint Expert Committee of Food Additives (JECFA), Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ), and Health Canada.
