    on the topic of artifical sweetners...does anyone use the sugar free syrups?

    i have the odd shot put into my coffee as a "Treat"

    i was considering buying some - not sure if they are treated the same way by the body as splenda..

    so would these syrups be considered good or bad?

    ive read and haerd that they can play havoc on ones stomach - but as far as i know there arent any sugar alcohols in them and thats the only thing that really gets my stomach sicker then a dog

    According to CalorieKing 1/4 cup (100g) = 125 cals and 46.4g carbs.

    from the Splenda website......

    With the inclusion of maltodextrin in SPLENDA® Granular, a cup of SPLENDA® Granular has 96 calories and 24 grams of carbohydrates compared to the 770 calories and 192 grams of carbohydrates found in a cup of sugar.

    With the inclusion of both dextrose and maltodextrin in SPLENDA® packets, 1 packet has 2 calories and 0.5 grams of carbohydrates.

    The small amount of calories in the SPLENDA® Granular and Packet products come from the presence of some common, natural food ingredients in these products. These ingredients, maltodextrin, for example, give SPLENDA® the necessary bulk so it can be used like sugar, but with only 1/8 sugar's calories.

    Huh? They're totally different figures from CalorieKing. I wonder why? :unsure:

    On the plus side, Splenda is less fattening than I thought. On the minus side, now I'll have to recalculate all my recipes. :sadface:

    Holy crap...I am a Splenda addict, too. :blush: I eat waaaaaaaaaaaaay freaking too much of this crap. I didn't know it had CALORIES! NO SHIT! Taking this out of my diet will drop me a pound a week. (not really, but it will help). I was planning on dropping it, anyway, but this is all the incentive I need. :bitch:
