Sweet & Low liquid

Hi,

seen sweet & low liquid at the grocery store yesterday. A friend tells me he buys the liquid splenda online and likes it better then the powder.
Does anyone use the S&L liquid for everyday things like coffee?

I used to for about my first year of LC'ing. I would even cook with it and everything. Things got bitter, this nasty taste for it developed, especially after using Torani syrups so much (made with splenda). I finally ordered EZ Sweetz from netrition (liquid splenda) and it's so much better.

If you can, order a bottle and I swear you won't regret it. If you can't, liquid S&L will work in a pinch, but it gets funky, plus all of the bad reports about it kind of stick in my mind. They don't deture me from using it if I have to, but if given the choice, I rather use splenda now.

What flavor torani did you use?

I will probably try S&L first because i prefer S&L over splenda taste wise. If i dont like that I will order EZ Sweetz thanks!

I mostly use sf vanilla. I like the ez sweetz also because I can flavor savory dishes without the vanilla flavor.

I've always used powdered Sweet 'n Low in my iced tea, but switched to the liquid a few years ago to save carbs. No fillers=no carbs.

Liquid sucralose is way different from powdered splenda. There are fillers in powdered splenda ( allergic to ) and not in syrups or liquid. I have used S&L in the past but I know better now.
