Is sucralose safe?

Are there sucralose side effects?

Sucralose is a safe ingredient. It has been thoroughly tested in scientific studies and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (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.
