Kirkman’s No Sugar is a sugar substitute that contains sucralose. It can be used in the exact proportions as regular sugar.
Sucralose tastes like sugar because it is made from natural sugar using a patented process that selectively substitutes three of the sugar molecule's hydroxyl groups with chlorine atoms. Unlike other chemical based sugar substitutes, it can be considered to derive from natural sources. McNeil Specialty Products Co., a wholly owned subsidiary of Johnson and Johnson®, manufactures the sucralose used in No Sugar.
Sucralose has been subjected to one of the most extensive and thorough safety testing programs ever conducted on a new food additive. More than 100 clinical studies, conducted over a 20-year period have concluded that sucralose is safe. Moreover, after consumption, it passes through the body without being metabolized. The FDA has approved it for use in beverages, foods, and dietary supplements because of these safety tests results.
Sucralose is the ideal sugar replacement because:
• It is made from natural sugar, but it is sugar free.
• It has no unpleasant aftertaste.
• It is safe for diabetics.
• It does not promote tooth decay.
• It is stable in hot and cold temperatures and can be used in baking.
• It does not require a warning label like other sweeteners.
• It does not react with other ingredients.
The carrier and bulking agent used in No Sugar is sorbitol. Sorbitol was chosen because it has approximately the same density as sugar, plus it is sugar free, casein free, gluten free, soy free and far removed by processing from any corn products.
The amount of sorbitol consumed daily should be monitored because some individuals cannot tolerate large quantities without some gas and/or a laxative effect. For this reason, our label has an “excess consumption” warning geared for adults. For children who are sorbitol sensitive, we suggest consulting with a physician before use. You and your physician may be able to determine an acceptable daily level of consumption.
Kirkman’s No Sugar can be used to sweeten coffee, tea, juices, and foods, and it can also be used as a one-to-one replacement for sugar in baking cookies, muffins, brownies, breads, etc. Each teaspoon contains about 20 calories.
