I just wanted to relay my experiences with Splenda and cooking/baking. My mother uses it all the time for her cookies and cakes. It serves her well. She uses white and brown splenda.

I also use splenda for cooking. I use it in almost everything and anything I can think of. I have been a diet soda drinker for many years, so I am used to the "diet" aftertaste in Equal and such. Prior to finding Splenda I did use Equal in everything I now use Splenda for. I don't even notice any difference. I use it in biscuit and roll
recipes. BBQ, spaghetti sauces, pizza sauces, frosting recipes, bread recipes. I use it when I boil sweetcorn by adding two to three packages to the boiling water to add some sweetness to the taste. I also use it in syrup for sweet potatoes, potato salad, chicken salad. I'd love to hear what you all use it for.
Thanks

Hello everyone,
I just wanted to mention, you might take a look at the information from SLPENDA regarding the safety and efficacy of SPLENDA. Check out splenda.com or splendastruth.com.I realize as a consumer you must consider this information and compare it to anything else available that provides research into SPLENDA.

I do support the use and feel that extensive research and study has been done and truly the only evidence that can substantiate that is time and evaluation.
GOOD LUCK.

i was told diet soda is NOT a good thing to drink from the chemicals it has unless it has splenda…

I was so glad to come across your post. I have been wondering about splenda. I bought some but have never used it. I have seen in diabetic recipes where they call for regular sugar and I always wondered why they did not use splenda and if it were possible to use splenda anytime a recipes calls for sugar.
Thanks for your post.

I had heard somewhere and sometime ago that Splenda might not be safe when used in high temperature cooking?

Thanks for the information. I have not come across any evidence to support this claim. I appreciate your comment and certainly want to see what I can find out. I will say, I have been doing this for years and never had any problems with it. I will also talk with my physician to see what he knows.
Thanks again.

Welcome and thank you for the information. I can boil water and that's about it. I'm planning on taking some cooking classes and I will remember splenda for a sweetener other than sugar. Thanks again, Angie
