Splenda: spiking you covertly since 1998

Friday, May 31, 2013

Well, there goes that. According to this study, Splenda DOES have an effect on your insulin production; I am definitely avoiding Splenda now.

    Clearly it has some effect. My question is, how much effect will it have if you don't chase it with glucose?

I love that they suggest that artificial sweetener could cause diabetes by leading to insulin spikes, but everyone says that eating lots of carbs does not cause diabetes, in spite of the fact that it causes glucose/insulin spikes.

    If it's too good to be true, it probably isn't true.
If it requires an organic chem class to understand the manufacture, I probably do't want to eat it.

    I don't think there is any artificial sweetener that comes without some price. I use stevia. which is technically naturally derived, but I wouldn't be surprised to find that it spikes insulin levels as well.

Interesting read. I'll be interested to see if they do more studies with other sweeteners as well.

    In addition to that, the chlorine it is bound to kills good bacteria in your gut. Scientists hemmed and hawed about it for years waiting for enough studies. I guess this is it. I don't use it any more either. There are others.
