Does sucralose cause cancer?

No. Sucralose has been well-studied for its safety. Authoritative bodies, such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), have reviewed the scientific data, including cancer studies, on sucralose. They have concluded it is safe for use in food and beverages.

The safety of our ingredients and beverages is really important to us. This includes the sugar substitutes we use in our products.


Is sucralose bad for you?

No, sucralose is a safe ingredient. It has been thoroughly tested in scientific studies and the FDA has confirmed it is safe.

The FDA has set an acceptable daily intake (ADI) level for sucralose. This is how much you can safely have each day. The ADI for sucralose is like a 132-pound adult having 23 tabletop packets every day.
