A Splenda Christmas and Healthy New Year to All!

Having a diabetic family is a real kill joy during this festive season. With dishes that we’re not allowed to prepare to avoid them from having those in their systems, it always challenge us, non-diabetic members of the family, to prepare something that can still bring that Yuletide cheers!

Thank goodness, my love for sweets won’t be sacrificed anymore, because by just having Splenda on my leche flan or halayang ube or fruit salad or refrigerated cake, all of us will have one sweet and healthy Christmas and New Year!

When it comes to dessert, I’m the one who’s always in charge about it in our family. They trust my taste because my love for sweets have brought me to a lot of places and met some great chefs and bakers that offer nothing but the best. That’s why when I tell to the family what kind of sweets will best fit to our Noche Buena or Medya Noche, their eyes glimmer like they don’t have health to worry about!

And since Splenda is also sucralose, is has that sweetening ingredient that gives a great taste people will love. Like other no-calorie sweeteners on the market, Splenda packets contain small amounts of carbohydrate (less than 1 gram per serving) to provide volume and texture. These common food ingredients are dextrose (packets) and maltodextrin (packets and granulated). These ingredients provide so few calories per serving that all Splenda products meet the Food and Drug Administration’s criteria for no-calorie foods (less than 5 calories/serving).

So, for those who are planning to cook for their love ones this Christmas, let’s exchange recipes, and who knows, maybe we can alter our recipes and have Splenda in it to enjoy the health benefits that it gives!

Happy Holidays, everyone!
