I have been using Splenda since it came out, before that I used Sweet 'n Low. I find that Splenda tastes much better, less aftertaste. I know that all sugar substitutes have side effects, but I feel that it is somewhat blown out of proportion to the amount consumed and that people forget that sugar itself has its own negative effects.
I use Splenda now almost 100% of the time in my tea (about 6 cups a day) and when I drink diet soda I get the brand sweetened with Splenda. I am hoping that the negatives that I'm sure will surface will be minimal, as it seems like a better alternative than some other sugar substitutes.
I am a little nervous about using it, but so far I haven't been able to find proof of anything terrible with personal side effects.
Does anyone know of any "proof" of negatives from using Splenda? Anyone else nervous to use it?
