For splenda correct to calculate 1g carbs per packet right?

 

Also, is it the maltodextrin or the actual sucralose that contains calories (or both)?

 

Another reason I ask is because Walden Farms makes some damn good chocolate syrup and it lists zero calories but also has sucralose...so I'm wondering if it's the sucralose or the maltodextrin that gives the calories in splenda.

 

Thoughts?

get liquid sweetners to avoid the calories (maltodextrin)

Sucralose is not metabolized by the body and therefore it contains zero calories or carbs.

Maltodextrin (filler used in Splenda) has both although in very small amounts.

So, read labels and look for the words "Sucralose" or "Splenda" for your answer.

Also, even in products that use Sucralose, also look for the words "Maltodextrin" and/or "Polydextrose". These will add sugar although small amounts as these can use the designation "non sugar carbohydrates or fiber" which is a total scam IMO. Neither of these are fiber and both raise insulin levels.

i was just doing some reading on studies that had shown that most artificial sweeteners cause insulin release, which is no good if one is trying to do fasted cardio in the morning or lose fat in general (or trying to pulse GH with peptides). I did, however, find a similar study that concluded that stevia does not do this.

that's only for the stuff they add to the powders to bulk it up for cooking.

I've read studies with contrarion results on Sucralose but for the most part, it's negligible and in small quantities, of no concern (to remain in ketosis; if that in fact is the objective).

Erythritol and Stevia are the only 2 that are consistently tested to have zero insulin response (0 glycemic index)

However, when we assess its overall safety profile....
