I am surprised to read all the neg stuff about Splenda in these forums. I have read some "bad" things about it, but most have been generated from that whack job Joseph Mercola.

I have found splenda to be a great sugar substitute. Took a while to get used to it's "lighter" strength than Sweet & Low or Equal, but I have, and even better that I am enjoying things "less" sweet these days. And the health issues with S&L and Equal make it the hands down thing to do.

I have tried Stevia and that one that people say tastes like licorice (cant remember the name at the moemnt). Both were terrible.

Can anyone comment?

Just a note,
Agave is a sugar yes, but a sugar with LG effect so therefore it is ok for diabetics.
If it is SB legal it is ok for diabetics, all sugars are not created equal.
The culprit is sucrose, HF corn syrup, etc.
Take care,
Ed

Not so LG...

Agave Nectar glycemic index of 46.
honey glycemic index of 58

I am not saying these #'s are factual (culled from this site), but based upon a GI of ZERO for Splenda.....
