10 Tidbits About Splenda

Made from Sugar So It Tastes Like Sugar…but acts like an antibiotic”    
~Sean Croxton
Do you consume products with Splenda?  Do you know of anyone who does?  If so, we thought you might find these 10 tidbits about Splenda interesting!

  1. Splenda (aka Sucralose) kills the good bacteria in your gut. This leads to bloating, gas, bad yeast overgrowth and of course with all that irritation it eventually becomes ‘leaky gut’. This is often the root of many types of allergies, sensitivities and especially autoimmune conditions.
  2. Splenda was supposed to be an insecticide, but they ‘accidentally’ found it tasted sweet and the rest is history…yikes
  3. Splenda’s chemical structure contains 3 chlorine molecules — yes the stuff in your pools and tap water. Eating it will deliver the chlorine directly into your cells.
  4. The chemical process to make sucralose alters the chemical composition of the sugar so much that it is somehow converted to a form of sugar molecule that does not occur in nature and therefore your body does not possess the ability to properly metabolize it. As a result, the makers of the product assume that it is not digested or metabolized by the body, making it have zero calories.”
  5. There have only been six human trials to date; the max lasting only 3 months
  6. Splenda’s chemical makeup is more similar to DDT than to sugar
  7. Sucralose is fat soluble — in other words, it can ruin your health as it safely hides in your fat for decades.”
  8. Sucralose actually triggers weight gain!
  9. Splenda is hepatotoxic and nephrotoxic…causes liver and kidney damage as it accumulates in your body.
  10. Artificial sweeteners have been found in water AFTER being treated in sewage treatment facilities.
So where can you find splenda/sucralose…look at all your chewing gum, unsweetened candies, diet pop, zero and low calorie processed/packaged/prepared foods, protein powders (yes we’ve found it there), sugar free desserts. It can also be found together with it’s nasty cousin ‘aspartame’. In a nut shell, you will probably find it with any product labelled as low calorie or sugar-free.
On a more positive note, lets to kick off your summer with an awesome summer salad that’s loaded with only good stuff:
Mango/Pear Avocado Salad
1 Ripe Mango (ataulfo are the best)
1 Ripe Pear
1.5 tbsp Hemp seeds
1 tbsp Sunflower seeds (or pumpkin)
1 ripe Avocado
Enough lettuce for 2-3 people
Other optional add-ons — raw sauerkraut, chopped kale, some goat feta
Mix all ingredients together. No dressing required (the avocado and fruit are the dressing) Serves 2-3
Note: The recipe is easy to double
Just typing this gave me a craving…I know what I’m going to have for lunch today!
