Mio water flavor

The quitting soda thread made me think of this.

I use Mio (energy in the morning, regular in the afternoon). I thought that the ingredients were ok. Propylene glycol, sucralose, acesulfame potassium are the ones that stuck out.
Anyone know anything about these? Sucralose is just Splenda, right?
Thanks.

I use mio (not the sport one), and the crystal light and dasani brands with similar low calorie water flavouring and they are fine for me. I use the kind you squirt into water....to be honest this is my life saver. Pop was my biggest weakness but I can handle it with some sweetened drinks. I love the squirt bottles because I can mix them weaker than a pre mixed bottle. Splenda is indeed sucralose. I would check the carbs on the energy one but the other one should be okay. Different people have different tolerances to sweeteners, but if you are drinking them and losing and they are low carb you should be okay.

Absolutely love them! Jolly rancher makes a watermelon in individual packets that is to die for! I use all of them and they haven't slowed me down. Good luck on your journey!
