"Nutrition Action has long considered sucralose (Splenda) to be safe. However, Italian researchers have reported preliminary results from a study in which male mice fed high doses of sucralose had an increased risk of leukemia. Until we can evaluate the final study, we are moving sucralose from a "safe" rating to a "caution". Two other widely used artificial sweeteners-aspartame and acesulfame potassium-have "avoid" ratings. We'll keep you posted" Nutrition Action Healthletter, June 2013
