1 doctor agrees
In brief: Depends
There are three main sugar substitutes-equal, slenda & nutrisweet.
They have been tested extensively and are believed to be safe, although some people can have some sensitivities to one or another. Then there is stevia, which is plant based. Btw-just because something is natural doesn't necessarily make it safe. The saying-everything in moderation, is the best way to go. Best wishes.
