  •  What is the recommended amount? (0+ / 0-)

    People in the US tend to eat more protein than they need in general, but it doesn't do that much harm--you just metabolize it. Just remember, "all things in moderation."

    The anti-sucralose hysteria comes partly from a Duke University study funded by the Sugar Association (as you can tell by the name, a perfectly unbiased study with no ulterior motives), which found if you consumed the equivalent of 11,450 packets of sucralose daily, a number of "bad things" will happen.

    No mention of the effects of consuming 11,450 packets of sugar, but you can watch The Biggest Loser to get a hint.

    And God said, "Let there be light"; and with a Big Bang, there was light. And God said "Ow! Ow My eyes!" and in a flash God separated light from darkness. "Whew! Now that's better. Now where was I. Oh yea . . ."

    •  How did we go from talking about aspartame (0+ / 0-)

      to studies about extreme consumption of sucralose?

      Though it doesn't surprise me the sugar industry funded it.

      Food processed to be nothing more than simple starches with two dozen flavorings and stabilizers added to make it appear to be food isn't "food". It's "feed" -- what you give to livestock to fatten them up for slaughter.

      •  sugar-free sodas (0+ / 0-)

        Aspartame or sucralose, your choice. Although I've seen health food stores selling stevia-sweetened sodas. I've tried a few of them--not bad, if a bit more expensive. It does help with the "all things in moderation" if you have to pay more, however.

        And God said, "Let there be light"; and with a Big Bang, there was light. And God said "Ow! Ow My eyes!" and in a flash God separated light from darkness. "Whew! Now that's better. Now where was I. Oh yea . . ."
