I just tried Diet Coke sweetened with Splenda, and have to say it rocks, dudes. I give it two snaps in Z formation!
What's wrong with diet coke without splenda?
Ahh, I get it now, somebody has sweet tooth
Yup, good stuff.. I have been drinking Diet-Rite lately though.. Sweetened with splenda, but no sodium..Originally Posted by Cuffs
He is saying diet coke is now sweetened with splenda. He is not dumping splenda in the diet coke, atleast i don't think..hahaOriginally Posted by DmitryWI
I love splenda.. in Ice Tea.. coffee ect...
Read somewhere the people who make it are having trouble keeping up with the demand...
But I bet they're having no trouble counting their money
i tried it .. tasted exactly like regular coke (from what i remember regular coke tasting like .. its been years) .. i didn't really care for it .. i guess i'm just really used to regular diet soda
I call it Splenda Coke. I tasted it, it seems alright, better than the Pepsi One Splenda version that's out now. Splenda was created as an alternative to aspartame. A lot of companies, you'll notice, will use Splenda/Ace K as sugar alternatives when they wouldn't use aspartame before. Coke and Pepsi are testing the waters to see if people would be ok with them ditching the aspartame. Now for a lesson:
What's wrong with aspartame?
Aspartame a.k.a. NutraSweet is a neurotoxic posion. It breaks down on the shelf or in the human body into several toxins and the amino acid d-phenylalanine. Those toxins being formaldehyde, methanol, formic acid and diketobenzaprine (DKP). Formaldehyde, boys and girls, is embalming fluid. Not too nice to the human body. Methanol is a wood alcohol which is present in aspartamein large amounts. In aspartame, it breaks down into formaldehyde and formic acid (fire ant venom). The FDA recommends a limit of 7.8 mg/day of methanol. A quart of aspartame-sweetened beverage contains about 56 mg methanol. DKP has been shown to cause brain cancer in lab rats. Furthermore, d-phenylalanine as present in aspartame is a free excitotoxin with similar effects to the amino in monosodium glutamate (d-glutamic acid). An excitotoxin is a chemical which can penetrate the brain barrier upon digestion in large amounts. When it reaches the brain, it causes overstimulation of the brain's neurons, so that they become very excited to the point of cell death. It's like forcing 100 watts of power through a 60 watt light bulb. Like little xmas lights on the brain, its neurons flicker faster and brighter until they burn out. Aspartame and MSG-like substances have been linked to major neurological disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease, Alzheimer's and Fibromyalgia, as well as numerous physical problems including macular degeneration, digestive issues and in an ironic twist, gross obesity. Some persons are more sensitive to feeling the effects of these substances than others, but they effect everyone to some degree as they are poisons, not allergens.
that sounds good. where can i get some of dat ****?
It's a tad sweeter and less "dry" that the Nutrasweet coke. It's almost indistinguishable from regualr coke, IMO.
aspartame gives me a frickin headache no matter how much I take in. I use splenda if I have to and very rarely use sweet and low but we should stay away from carbonated beverages all together because the phosphoric acid pulls magnesium out of your system which inhibits the uptake of calcium.
I wrote to Coke almost 5 years ago asking them make a Splenda version of their Diet Coke. Splenda is the closest thing to sugar without actually being sugar.. I'm sure they received many letters like mine.. Why did it take them so long? It's surely going to be a hit...
lol. Of course it gives you a headache. Brain neuron death tends to do that.aspartame gives me a frickin headache no matter how much I take in.
I am gonna switch from Diet Pepsi to Splenda Coke, until Diet Pepsi does their version.
Splenda was/is more expensive to source than nutrasweet. The unit-cost of the ingredients are virtually-zero, so adding a high-value sweetener f*cks-up the margins a bit. Spenda was 5x the cost of nutrasweet when introduced.Originally Posted by Zero Tolerance
Pepsi already came out with their version. Pepsi One is now made with Splenda/Ace K.I am gonna switch from Diet Pepsi to Splenda Coke, until Diet Pepsi does their version.
It's too bad big business rules the FDA or we might have a less harmful sweetener like Stevia (which has never shown toxic effects and actually helps regulate insulin levels) on the market. Still, it's progress.
I wish we could see more stevia out there as well. We could enjoy cereal again!
It hasn't gotten to California yet.
As long as it taste better than C2, that'll be cool.
