There are many artifical sweetners on the market. Many claim to have no calories. Sometimes, Splenda spikes my blood sugar. Usually the first thing in the morning. I use it in kool-aid. It requires 1 cup to make 2 quarts kool-aid. When using a cup is there still no calories? Splenda claims that it is safe for diabetics. Equal also causes a small spike in my blood sugar as well. Does anyone know of an artificial sweetner that doesn't spike blood sugar and has no carbs on calories. Crystal Light does not spike my blood sugar, but for some reason it burns my tongue and mouth.
