Actually, you can know it is related to sucrose just by its name. Sucralose is an artificial sweetener made by partially chlorinating sucrose, which is about 600 times sweeter than sucrose. In addition, sucralose has high thermal stability and is easily soluble in water and some organic solvents such as ethanol and methanol. The aqueous solution of sucralose is clear and transparent. Sucralose not only has properties of high sweetness, but also pure sweetness. And the speed of sweetness presentation, the intensity of maximum sweetness, the duration of sweetness and the aftertaste are all very close to sucrose. It has a diluting effect on sour and salty tastes, has a masking effect on astringency, bitterness, wine and other tastes, and has a synergistic effect on spicy and milky tastes. What’s more, sucralose is not involved in metabolism in the human body and is not absorbed by the human body, the calorie value is zero, so it is widely used as a healthy sugar substitute ingredient in the field of food processing and healthcare supplements.

The advantages of sucralose:

1. Safe Source ​​

Sucralose is made from sugar and tastes like sugar. Sucralose is about 600 times sweeter than sugar, so only a small amount is needed to sweeten food and drinks.

2. Delicious and versatile

Sucralose not only has high sweetness but also has the characteristics of no calories, pure sweetness and high safety. It is known as one of the most ideal sweeteners and is widely used in the fields of medicine, food and health care products.

3. Suitable for diabetics

Sucralose is not recognized by the body as sugar or carbohydrate. Therefore, it does not affect glucose utilization, carbohydrate metabolism, insulin secretion, or fructose absorption. Studies in people with normal blood sugar levels and those with type 1 or type 2 diabetes confirmed that sucralose had no effect on short- or long-term blood sugar control.

4. No Calories

Although sucralose is made from sugar, the body does not recognize it as a carbohydrate, so it has zero calories. Sucralose is a useful alternative for those trying to reduce sugar or calorie intake. Many diets or light products, including soda or carbonated drinks, candy, dairy desserts, and baked goods, contain sucralose.

5. Thermally stable

Sucralose has excellent thermal stability and is ideal for baking, canning, pasteurizing, aseptic processing and other manufacturing processes that require high temperatures. In a study of a range of baked goods, canned fruit, syrups, jams and jellies, no measurable sucralose losses occurred during processing and throughout their shelf life.

6. Does not promote tooth decay

Sucralose does not cause dental problems. Research shows that oral bacteria that cause tooth decay do not use sucralose as a food source.

7. Safe to use

Sucralose is safe for the entire family, including children, pregnant or breastfeeding women, and even people with diabetes. Like all food ingredients, sucralose undergoes an extensive safety testing program before it is marketed. Health and regulatory agencies around the world have thoroughly evaluated sucralose safety studies, and in each case have concluded that sucralose is safe for all households.

8. Long shelf life

Sucralose combines the taste of sugar with the caloric, liquid and storage stability required for use in all types of food and beverages. Very stable in acidic products (eg carbonated soft drinks) and other liquid products (eg sauces, jellies, dairy products, processed fruit drinks). Sucralose is also very stable in dry applications such as powdered beverages, instant desserts and tabletop sweeteners.
