Saccharin (Sweet'n'Low) and sucralose (Splenda) are both MUCH better. Saccharin - despite what you may have heard - is probably the safest food additive ever created. The infamous 1970s test that caused bladder cancer in rats has been completely discredited. First - the rats were fed only pure saccharin, and in greater volumes than their standard food intake. Second - the cancerous action in their bladders had ZERO realation to the human digestive system. And Third - that study used bad syringes, and the plastic or something from the syringes was found to have actually caused the cancer. Some soft drink companies are switching to sucralose, including Canada Dry. I hope more will follow. For me, it's only Sweet'n'Low in my coffee, tea and even smoothies.
I buy the yoplait lt. smoothies...which have splenda in them. I am trying to quit the dt. coke altogether but have been trying the dt. coke with splenda...I don't care for it as much...it tastes sweeter than aspartame...more like dt. pepsi.
I am terribly addicted to coffee lately though...
