Hot & Cold, Low-Cal & No-Cal, Diet Soft Drinks & Other Diet Beverages
Thanks to sucralose¹ and talented beverage manufacturers who use natural flavors and dedication to perfect recipes, today’s diet beverages no longer require “acquiring a taste for.” They can be just as pleasing as those sweetened with sugar.² This section has a selection of excellent products that are specifically for people restricting their sugar intake.
¹ Sucralose is the chief component of Splenda®. Splenda® adds small amounts of the common food ingredients dextrose and/or maltodextrin, to provide volume in its packets and jars. Sucralose can be used virtually anywhere sugar is used: it is stable in cooking and baking. While sucralose is made from sugar, it is converted to a non-calorie, non-carbohydrate form that passes through the body without being broken down for energy, so the body does not recognize it as a carbohydrate. See our article on Demystifying Sugar Substitutes.
² Large volume, mass marketed soft drinks generally are sweetened with less expensive corn syrup instead of cane sugar.
