Which is safer to use as a sweetener, truvia or splenda  thank you.

I am wondering if I can use Truvia a sugar substitute?

You can, however...: Most sugar substitutes like NutraSweet and Splenda are toxic and should be avoided. Truvia is relatively safe, though its marketing claim of being "all natural" is dubious. See https://authoritynutrition.com/truvia-good-or-bad/ Its main ingredient is erythritol from GMO corn. I prefer to use pure erythritol in bulk from non-GMO sources (cheaper too).
