Sucralose Myth: Side Effects

Myth: Sucralose causes various side effects including headaches, allergies and gastrointestinal issues.

Fact: Scientists have conducted many studies to determine whether sucralose had any various side effects. Researchers have concluded that there are no known side effects of sucralose. No toxic effects have been seen in test animals, even in amounts equivalent in sweetness to more than 40 pounds of sugar per day for life – far in excess of the amount of sucralose that may typically be consumed in a day in real life. For example, research does not support that sucralose would cause migraines and headaches, gastrointestinal issues or food allergies. It’s important to note that sucralose is often used in foods which contain other ingredients that some people may be sensitive to, such as ice cream or chocolate.
