Personally I find that the small amount of sugar used in this overall low fat and healthy cuisine does not require subbing. I do use honey in nuoc cham because I like the taste - but that does not lower calories. In quick pickles like cucumber, carrot, and daikon, I have subbed Splenda and find it to be ok - I think because the vinegar is strong enough to mask any off flavor of the artificial sweetener. I find nuoc cham to be more subtle (yes despite the fish sauce) and have never tried Splenda there.
