Shouldn’t there be cause for concern when your sugar substitute fizzes when you put it in your coffee?

i put splenda in my coffee and it’s never fizzed before…

Man, I thought I was the only one that wondered about that. I’m like, how can it be safe for you when it jizzes up in your coffee like that?

No. Drink it. Don’t ask questions.

Had to laugh at your post. I am diabetic and have been using splenda for some time now. I often wonder what I am adding to my body but then again I have to agree with Trish…better to not ask.

That IS a bit troubling.

I probably would have tossed out that cup, made a new one, and if it fizzed too, I’d have gone ahead with it.

it’s always fizzed for me. it fizzes like a bugger when you put it in unsweeetened kool-aid (Hyper’s beverage of choice – four quick squeezes of the box is just right).

Is Splenda good-tasting? And, is it low (preferrably no) non-fiber carbs?

I made chocolate chip cookies with Equal once and when I added the sugar to the butter it certainly did the fizz/sizzle sound.

Very gross.

Yes, splenda is low-carb. But I’ve just got concerns with something that they remove a carbon molecule and replace it with a chlorine molecule so your body can’t tell it’s sugar. I think I’d just rather have the real stuff.

I thought we were the only ones that noticed the fizz.

It quickly turns from a fizz to a froth, don’t you think?
