    so good is splenda for you? I know it's made from sugar with no calories and stuff, but is it true that the body does not absorb it?

    I don't trust it. Give it a few years and they will decide that it gives you cancer.

    Sucralose is a dervitized form of sucrose...the molecule can bind to taste receptors in the mouth but cannot bind to the various enzymes involved in metabolism so it just passes through the body.

    its a glucose molecule that has some of the carbons chlorinated. because of this, it tastes sweet, but cant be absorbed through the intestinal walls, and you shit it out. there is really no way for it to be harmful, unless you take a shitload and it gives you diarrhea
