There are other sweeteners like Aspartame, Saccharin, Acesulfame-K and Stevia, but Splenda is the tastiest, with no known side effects. It has no aftertaste and has no effect on carbohydrate metabolism. It is safe for diabetics and often commented by diabetics that "this tastes like regular sugar candy".
People choose to limit their sugar and carb intake for many reasons, including weight loss, disease prevention and interest in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Almost all of GoLightly’s sugar free candy contains 0 net grams of carbs, making it a good choice for a tasty - and smart - treat.
