Splenda - Low Calorie Sugar Alternative

Splenda is an alternative to sugar which manages to make you feel a bit better, healthwise, about using it. Rather than using ingredients such as aspartame or saccharine which have had some negative press, Splenda sells itself as being 'made from sugar, tastes like sugar but it's not sugar'.

You can buy them in tablet form called Sweet Minis available in packs of 100, 300 or 500. The granulated comes in a cardboard carton in 75g or 125.

Spenda granulated is suitable for vegetarians and vegans, however, the tablets aren't because of the presence of lactose.
