What is Splenda?
What is Splenda? Splenda is a no-calorie sweetener which is healthier than sugar in its natural form. Splenda tastes just like sugar, but has no calorie and is, therefore, better for those people who have strict dietary restrictions on the food that they consume. Mcneil Nutritionals boasts that Splenda is extremely safe for consumption and has been widely researched to confirm this fact. Splenda has also been certified safe by the FDA and many other agencies.
