Im not sure where else to post this, so here it goes:

I am looking for research studies regarding sucralose and aspartame. I use sucralose often, but not aspartame. I was however, just told by a friend that sucralose and aspartame both can prevent the absorption of several key nutrients to your body. He didn't have any specific examples to give me. Has anyone else heard of this? I don't use aspartame, by personal choice. But I have never heard anything negative come from Splenda/Sucralose, thus I have used it regularly. If however, the sucralose is inhibiting me more than helping me, I will discontinue use. Anyone?:confused:

Plenty of studys out there. Just use in moderation. I would never listen to anyone talk about stuff like this because there is just so many rumors and proproganda. Every single research study I've seen shows both are safe and the FDA/USDA agrees.
