Its best to avoid ALL artificial sweeteners. My mother has suffered serious CNS effects from Splenda. We have filed an adverse reaction report with the FDC. I have terrible problems with Aspartame and Saccharin. Headaches, and a weird out-of-body feeling.
Artificial sweeteners are in so many things.... yogurt, snack cakes, cereals, breads, juices... these are just the tip of the iceberg. Another really BAD substance is high fructose corn syrup and all of its relatives (found in regular soft drinks) The AMA has reported a link in its use and the spike in diabetes these past decades.
I dont know what the answer is, except to stay as close to the food God intended for us as possible.
