Sucralose is a non-nutritive sweetener. The majority of ingested sucralose is not broken down

by the body, so it is noncaloric.In the European Union, it is also known under the E number E955.

Sucralose is about 320 to 1,000 times sweeter than sucrose, twice as sweet as saccharin, and three

times as sweet as aspartame. It is stable under heat and over a broad range of pH conditions. Therefore,

it can be used in baking or in products that require a longer shelf life. The commercial success of

sucralose-based products stems from its favorable comparison to other low-calorie sweeteners in

terms of taste, stability, and safety. Common brand names of sucralose-based sweeteners are Splenda,

Zerocal, Sukrana, SucraPlus, Candys, Cukren, and Nevella.


Main Functions:

Sucralose is found in many food and beverage products, used because it is a no-calorie sweetener, does

not promote dental cavities, is as safe for consumption by diabetics as nondiabetics, and does not affect

insulin levels. Sucralose is used as a replacement for, or in combination with, other artificial or natural

sweeteners such as aspartame, acesulfame potassium or high-fructose corn syrup. Sucralose is used

in products such as candy, breakfast bars and soft drinks. It is also used in canned fruits wherein water

and sucralose take the place of much higher calorie corn syrup-based additives. Sucralose mixed with

maltodextrin or dextrose (both made from corn) as bulking agents is sold internationally by McNeil Nutritionals

under the Splenda brand name. In the United States and Canada, this blend is increasingly found in restaurants,

in yellow packets, in contrast to the blue packets commonly used by aspartame and the pink packets used by those

containing saccharin sweeteners; in Canada, though, yellow packets are also associated with the SugarTwin brand

of cyclamate sweetener
