Sucralose Splenda

Anyone heard any sound, factual information about sucralose (slenda) during pregnancy. I love propel and it is one thing that is easy for me to drink first thing in the morning without getting sick. I noticed the other day that there is a small amount of sucralose in it and was concerned.

I have heard that out of all the artificial sweeteners that Splenda is one of the best for you, since it is derived from sugar. I spoke to my doctor about sweet n' low specifically, because I use that sparingly in my decaf iced tea. She said it was fine. She said that people would have to use very large amounts of artificial sweeteners to pose a threat to their baby. As I said, I use it sparingly. Whatever sweeteners are used, it is best to use them in small, infrequent doses. Once a day in your Propel drink is probably okay, but I would just ask your doctor specifically if you are still really concerned. Best of luck!!

Try Gatoraide--it worked for me. But, limit the artificial stuff (they all have artificial colors). Good luck!

i'm not sure about during pregnancy, but after your baby is born, it is definately better off with real sugar (whole sugar and brown sugar are actually better). but i'm sure you won't be feeding a newborn sugar.... when they're older i mean :P

My understanding is that Splenda is not absorbed by the body and I had read in 'What to Expect When You're Expecting' and on the Internet that it is safe to use. I use it over other artificial sweeteners but I try to limite my intake.
