Sucralose is an artificial sweetener. It is the only non-caloric, high-intensity sweetener made from sugar, 600 times sweeter than sucrose. Sucralose has been approved for use in foods and beverages in more than 40 countries . Sucralose tastes very similar to sugar and has no unpleasant aftertaste. Sucralose is not metabolized, thus it has no calories; has no effect on glucose utilization, carbohydrate metabolism, and the secretion of insulin, or glucose and fructose absorption; does not support the growth of oral bacteria and does not promote tooth decay. It is exceptionally heat stable, making it ideal for use in baking, canning, pasteurization, aseptic processing and other manufacturing processes that require high temperatures; It is particularly stable in acidic products, such as carbonated soft drinks, and in other liquid based products.
