Sucralose is an artificial sweetener developed by Tate & Lyle that is 600 times as sweet as sugar. It is a modified form of ordinary sugar (sucrose) and contains no calories. Although the name Sucralose ends in -ose, it is not a basic sugar like glucose or sucrose, so the name is rather misleading, and this was perhaps by choice. It is usually sold as Splenda.It has a good flavor with little aftertaste. However, like most zero calorie sweeteners, it has a rather empty taste, and is quite different from ordinary sugar in this regard. It does not break down under heat and so is suitable for cooking and in processed foods.
