Splenda

What’s crazy? Splenda. (Just so you know, sucralose is another name for Splenda so watch out for either when looking at ingredients.) 

I don’t eat Splenda since it is a chlorinated artificial sweetener. And the formula for Splenda was originally created as a pesticide. It takes the sugar molecule and eliminates the hydrogen in it to replace it with chlorine.

Alternative: Stay away from artificial sweeteners. Choose natural sugar or stevia (Truvia is a brand name based on stevia)
