What is Sucralose?

Sucralose is a zero-calorie artificial sweetener.

Sucralose is made from sugar in a multi-step chemical process in which 3 hydrogen-oxygen groups are replaced with chlorine atoms.

It was discovered in 1976 when a scientist at a British college misheard instructions about testing a substance. Instead, he tasted it, realizing that it was highly sweet.

Sucralose is 400–700 times sweeter than sugar and does not have a bitter aftertaste like many other popular sweeteners.

Sucralose is one of the top artificial sweeteners that’s used globally in reduced-calorie and diet foods and beverages. 

Sucralose is a versatile sweetener, so you'll find it sweetening up many foods, including diet drinks, chewing gum, gelatin and frozen desserts. It's also heat-stable, making it suitable for cooking and sugar-free baking, notes Kirkpatrick. That means you won't just find it in those little packets to add to coffee, but you can also buy a bag of granulated sucralose at the grocery store to use in recipes at home.
