Is SPLENDA a safe substitute for sugar?

Why or why not? I really don't have a clue...

  • It's better than other things, but if you're not diabetic or anything, stick with regular sugar, but keep it to a minimum.

  • Define safe, some of the substitutes are worse than the actual product you are trying to avoid.

  • The only thing that I've ever heard to be natural and safe for anyone is Stevia but it may not be as easy to find.

  • The only people who should be using artifical sweetners are diabetics. Sweetners are worse for the body than regular sugar. Sweetners are horrible and do not leave your body..turn to gel and formeldhyde in the body.
