|"I have heard both good and bad stories from people using Splenda. I haven't read much about it, but thought that I would address my experience with it.
My husband and I are in our late 20s and have decided to give up sugar. More than my husband, I have had a difficult time given my sweeth tooth. I have tried products with malitol and had a similar experience as that of WA of Hayes, VA, did with sucralose.
Now, with sucralose, I haven't had any problems at all, and the sweetness that it adds to foods tastes the same as sugar to me. My mother is severely diabetic and has been baking with surcalose, and also has not had any adverse side effects.
I have not noticed any difference in my mood, energy level, or any other aspect of my life, excedpt the positive effect of being able to give up sugar. I have always been a happy, positive person with a high energy level. I think this makes a difference with making a switch in your life of any kind.
I think everyone is different and everyone will react to some food products differently than others. I agree that more testing should be done on all sweetener substitutes. It is also my opinion that if something bothers you, don't use it, but don't force others to not use it just because you can't."
