SPLENDA® Sucralose is a high potency sweetener that starts life as table sugar (sucrose) and is then processed to create sucralose – 600 times sweeter, but without the calories. Its ability to maintain sweetness, through a wide variety of food processing conditions, pH and over a long shelf life, makes SPLENDA® Sucralose a reliable partner in a huge range of products. The sugar-like taste makes it ideal for manufacturers, looking to create low calorie products that appeal to consumers.

Today there is more pressure than ever on manufacturers to reduce calories and sugar in their products while keeping costs in check. Foods and beverages still need to taste great and consumers are not prepared to compromise on this. Tate & Lyle is the sole manufacturer of SPLENDA® Sucralose, a zero-calorie sweetener invented over 40 years ago. Part of our unique food and beverage solutions portfolio SPLENDA® Sucralose offers sugar-like sweetness, stability and versatility.
