Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Glycemic Index of Splenda® Brand Sweeteners?

The Glycemic Index (GI) of a food is a measure of how quickly a serving of food is metabolized into glucose, and therefore how it effects your blood sugar when consumed on an empty stomach. Assigning a GI value to a low and no calorie sweeter is not a proper use of the GI concept. The Glycemic Load (GL) is a more appropriate concept for low and no calorie sweeteners.
