Is Slenda safe for diabetics? I like to use it in tea and also in cooking.
Splenda should be OK in moderate amounts. Unfortunately, the Splenda you buy in yellow packages is cut with maltodextrin, which raises blood sugar levels.
I use stevia that comes without a "bulking agent."
You should also know that flour has more glucose than table sugar. So continuing to bake breads and pies and cookies but using Splenda instead of sugar is accomplishing relatively little
Splenda is also available on the Internet in liquid form. I get mine from sweetzfree.com and it has no carbs or bulking agent. It's a relatively expensive purchase, but one bottle lasts a really long time, since 25 drops equals 1 cup of sugar sweetness.
is it better for diabetics to use splensa sugar
