What It Is: Sucralose, also known by its brand name Splenda, has a tag line that it’s “made from sugar” (which it is). It’s 600 times sweeter than sugar.

The Scoop: The FDA says it reviewed more than 100 safety studies before approving sucralose as a general-purpose sweetener for foods. Because it's heat-stable, you can use it for baking.

Sugar Alcohols

What They Are: They don't contain the kind of alcohol you drink. These sweeteners, found in some fruit spreads, chocolate, baked goods, and even mouthwash, have names like xylitol and sorbitol.

They’re made from plant products. They have fewer calories than sugar.

The Scoop: If you have diabetes, be aware that sugar alcohols are carbohydrates and can still raise your blood sugar. They can also act like laxatives or have other digestive symptoms in some people.
