    I tried fuze today but as I was reading the label I saw in the ingredients "crystaliine fructose honey" or something similar so I threw it away..it tasted really good but im assuming that its some sort of hybrid of high fructose corn syrup....so does anyone know of a decent green tea bottled drink that doesnt contain poison :hsugh: :coolugh:

    It's fructose from honey. I am not sure what the problem is.

    How is HFC harmful? It is fructose. It is found in fruits, honey and table sugar. Small amounts are not going to be a problem.

    What? Small amounts of fructose are not harmful at all (16 grams of fructose in this instance). Find me a study saying so. Thanks.

    Kirklands green tea (bags). But that might be too authentic for your delicate taste buds.

    do this... the store bought stuff is processed to shit and probably loses all of it's nutritional benefits. Brew it yourself, throw a little bit of splenda and lemon in there and it's delicious

    i would just like you guys to know that this thread spurred me to spend the last hour to hour and a half reading up on the negative side effects of splenda and splenda substituted drinks/foods.

    conclusion: splenda, like everything else in this world, will probably slowly kill you. In regards to weight gain, new studies suggest that using splenda (or splenda based products) will actually lead to weight gain, rather than weight loss.

    however, there seems to be to reasons to support this claim. one of them, at least to me, appears to be a paper dragon, even if proven true in rats.
    #1) you may gain weight (fat) b/c it is a simple carb. and it will act as do all simple carbs. -- guess i can't see much false in this statement.

    #2) and this is the one that they really seem to focus on, is that it tricks the brain into thinking it will get something sweet, which works for a minute or few, but eventually the body realizes it consumed no calories and recieved no sugar rush. Thus, you will still crave sugary foods, and crave carbs even more. Therefore, you will then over consume. So even tho you are cutting out calories from sugar, you will, inevitably i guess, still consume more calories in the long run--b/c your body has not satisfied its needs. This happened with mice.

    I'd argue number 2 is pretty weak, at least for someone who eats intelligently. I could see where the "average american" who has no idea what they are putting into their body maybe wouldn't recognize that they are simply picking those calories and then some back up in other/larger meals. But for someone who monitors their diet, and simply substitutes splenda (or other artificial sweetener) for sugar, keeping everything else constant, seems to me it would have to be beneficial. assuming it doesn't cause cancer.

    i am not endorsing splenda, just pointing out the fallacy of their retarded argument.

    Splenda is fucking fine


    As to #1, no, it is not a simple carb. The chlorine substitution makes it impossible for glucose-6-phosphatase to bind a phosphate group to it. The metabolism stops here and it passes through the body unchanged with no net gain of ATP.

    And #2 is the gayest most retarded shit I've ever heard so I'm not gonna bother.

    I actually just clicked that link. That stupid whore would have failed my freshman cemistry class.

    Lol. She refers to the cloride as "the same chlorine we use to disenfect". Full of fucking lols. Maybe someone needs to read their chlorox bottle and see that sodium hypochlorite is the active ingediant and does its job because hypochlorite (-OCL4) is an oxidant. But what the fuck would I know about chemistry....lols

    That was just the first link I came up with. All I know is that I'd rather eat sugar (or nothing) than replace it with Splenda.

    Fuck, it's tea. It has enough great flavor before you add any other shit to it.

    according to a study by Duke University, as well as some others, yes it has chlorine bonds, as does table salt. But splenda is more closely related to pesticides in nature :eek3: than is it to table salt. The structure of the chlorine bonds are the same as you find in pesticides, and splenda was actually discovered by scientists trying to devise a new and better pesticide :eek3:

    but i still agree with JeremyD, when i'm wanting something sweet, i'll usually invite "splendicide" to the party

    Can you name them please? I have seen this before, but if I remember right, the structures are completely different making the comparison irrelevant. The only thing common was a Cl added to a carbon ring--BFD.
