About sucralose

Sucralose was discovered in 1976. More than 100 scientific studies, conducted over a 20 year period, have conclusively established that sucralose is safe for everyone to consume.

Sucralose is a zero calorie sweetener used in a variety of products from drinks to baked foods. It’s about 600 times sweeter than sugar but, because it doesn’t metabolise in the body, it has no caloric value.

Sucralose is made from sugar and tastes like sugar. Its composition means that, unlike some other sweeteners, it has no unpleasant aftertaste. Instead, its sweet, clean taste comes through immediately.

Sucralose is extremely stable and maintains its sweetness even when used at high temperatures. This makes it ideal for cooking, baking, preserving and pasteurising.
