To make sucralose or Splenda, three chlorine molecules are added to a sucrose or sugar molecule.  The chemical process alters the sugar so much that it creates a fructo-galactose molecule. This type of molecule does not occur in nature, so the human body can not properly metabolize it, which makes it a zero calorie sweetener. At least 15% of Splenda is not excreted from your body in a timely manner.  The molecular structure of Splenda bears remarkable resemblance to that of pesticides, and chlorine is a carcinogen. Some unhealthy chemicals used to create Splenda include the following:
1. Acetone
2. Acetic acid
3. Acetyl alcohol
4. Acetic anhydride
5. Ammonium chloride
6. Benzene
7. Chlorinated sulfates
8. Ethyl alcohol
9. Isobutyl ketones
10. Formaldehyde
11. Hydrogen chloride
12. Lithium chloride
13. Methanol
14. Sodium methoxide
15. Sulfuryl chloride
16. Trityl chloride
17. Toluene
18. Thionyl chloride
Although manufacturing guidelines specify limits on these substances, these ingredients don’t have to be reported. Side effects include seizures, allergic reactions, migraines, dizziness, increases in blood sugar, weight gain, blurred vision, reducing the beneficial bacteria in your gut, increasing the PH level in your intestines, and gastrointestinal issues.
Our recommendation is to use sweeteners that are found in nature:
Coconut nectar, stevia, maple syrup or raw honey.
