splenda is a carcinogenic

this recipe is not healthy splenda is a dangerous substance, don't go near it with a ten foot pole. for anyone who's interested on reading up about the truth behind all sweeteners, both artificial and natural, go online to the weston a. price foundation , and read the article on sweeteners. try maple syrup or stevia in this recipe.

Using Splenda

Start Fresh neither endorses nor opposes the use of artificial sweeteners. These are strictly personal decisions, as these are made with sugar (and yes, chemicals). We dont think that sugar is any great shakes either, as it has been found to be addictive. However, we live in a "sweet" world. Splenda seems to be the"sweetener of choice at the moment",so we includede it in our recipes.SO, all that is to say, use the sweetening agent of your choice - just be aware that sugar, honey,brown sugar, raw sugar, and all the other sugars are just that - sugars.

Don't Add Splenda!

I recently read about the health hazards of splenda which the FDA seems to have approved with only minimal testing on humans. Despite the calories, it seems that a bit of sugar or honey might be a safer choice.

Hello Jamie, I love your recipes ~ I want to share with you the dangers of what the media has lead us to believe to be safe and that is Splenda. There are legal but dishonest loopholes that lets the Company manipulate the facts about the calories. It is a combination product that can be very unsafe for diabetics in particular calorie wise. Bulking agents are used along with the Sucralose, dextrose and maltodextran which is taken from "high fructose corn syrup" The facts are manipulated by the study of sucralose.(they can state there are zero calories when it really is not) It is a chlorinated organic compound and our body doesn't know what to do with it. You do not need to post my information. I am not Jewish. I respect this website and read it from top to bottom absorbing what I can. I am not even sure if Splenda is Kosher. I just wanted to tell you for your information. I work for a holistic chiropractor and get a lot of information from my daughter who is in Medical School. I just know that chemically made sweeteners are just that, chemicals which our bodies are not lacking and can actually keep us addicted and fat. Using raw cane sugar is actually much safer or I use organic Blue Agave, very sweet and low glycemic.

Fabulous idea for those watching their weight

I'm an old time Start Fresh member (not online) and this is yet another one of their great ideas. I'm always looking for something filling at night - this sounds perfect
