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