Seriously, I cannot understand it.


I actually PREFER the taste of Sweet N' Low in my iced tea or lemonade over SUGAR!


Why is this, and why the hell hasn't the world cashed in on Sweet N' Low? Could it not be used in sodas instead of that nasty-ass stuff that is used now? What's the deal?

Because it is a sugar substitute. Giving the awesome sugar taste but the somewhat fulfilling thought of knowing you aren't ingesting concentrated heart attack.

Because it tastes like atomised asshole. Just putting that out there...

it can cause cancer and if it was substituted for everything that all-natural sugar is used in cancer rates would fly through the roof. Of corse that is what they want...

well first off the high fructose corn syrup that's used in sodas is much cheaper to make which is why its used in sodas and other foods as opposed to sweet and low.

also take note that your body can control sugar, it knows what to do with it. your body however does not know what to do with foreign chemicals it's not used to, like sweet and low. sure it's a sugar substitute and is a relative of glucose chemically, but your body wasn't made to process it and because of this it can be harmful to you.

remember, real sugar isn't bad, you need it to survive.

The best idea is to eat sugar in moderation, or just try and stay away from it entirely.

Instead of people trying to make new chemicals with no calories, maybe people should try and work on breaking sugar addiction and craving.

It's just cancer waiting to happen, and I'd take having to work off sugar calories over cancer any day.

you shouldn't try to stay away from it entirely, you need it to live. without glucose your body could not perform Glycolysis and then therefore not be able to perform the Krebs Cycle.

if those 2 metabolic processes are not conducted, your body wouldn't have any Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP, energy) and you wouldn't be able to live.

Sugar is naturally found in MANY, MANY foods.

Like carrots, for instance.

I know you used a lot of big words to try and look good, but trust me, I understand we need sugars in order to keep our cells replicating and producing energy.

I'm saying, if you see that can of soda, you DON'T need it. You don't need that lollipop either. Or that salt water taffy.

i'm well aware that sugar is naturally found in many foods...but when you say "stay away from sugar entirely" i assumed you were including said foods which sugar is found in. that's what it sounded like anyway.

and i really didn't try and look good, i stated the facts as they were and as i remembered them. sorry for being a bit informed on human biology >_>

I'll be more specific and concise next time; I indeed meant useless foods and over indulgence .

You don't need to apologize for understanding human biology; you just honestly came across as someone who went to Wikipedia for 4 minutes and picked out all the big words to show us that we needn't contest with your opinion because you appear to know more than us.

Misunderstandings are frequent.

I do believe that 5 cups is less than 1 gallon. But Llama's still rock.
