It started with a word, misheard
From the first yellow SPLENDA® Zero Calorie Sweetener to SPLENDA® Stevia Sweetener, SPLENDA® brand has brought sweetness to the world since 1992. But it all started in 1976, when researchers at a British college were investigating a new compound made from sugar.
When a young scientist was told to “test” the new compound, called sucralose, he misheard the request and proceeded to “taste” it instead. The surprise? Sucralose was sweet—and calorie free!
Today, the SPLENDA® brand is the most recognizable and iconic low-calorie sweetener brand in the world. SPLENDA®’s portfolio of products reinforces our position as a category leader, with more delicious new products to come.
What’s The Sweetening Secret To SPLENDA® Original Sweeteners?
Sucralose! Through an amazing scientific process, we’ve transformed sugar into an extraordinary sweetener that tastes like sugar (but it’s not sugar) — and it doesn’t break down in your body to provide carbohydrate or calories.
