Specifically, im curious about sucralose and acesulfame potassium.

I know many of you are going to tell me to use only real sugars, and such. i realize that ultimately, i should.
but im changing many eating habbits already, and im not just quite ready to drop soda yet, though i have cut back drastically how much i do drink.

My concern over the sweeteners ive never heard of come from looking for a diet-ish soda i can enjoy. as aspertame is the popular one to avoid.

I would thank anyone that can offer any info for me

Its probably best to rely on real sugar than the fake sugars and every artificial sweetener i have looked at seems to have more cons than pros

I can sweeten anybody up. So I've been told. No risk involved.

Honey, molasses, cane and raw sugars from reliable sources. Please read the labels.
Artificial sweeteners are chemically enhanced, chlorinated non-food products.

Why anyone would consume them is beyond me.

Just one of many links in regards to ingredients of these sweeteners.

Let's not get started again on our good friends at Monsanto; round-up and aspartame.

Look for xylitol or its other name, which escapes me now. It's a bit new, but gaining acceptance. It has a rather nice "dry" sweet flavor that isn't over-bearing, and I have seen or heard of no reports about detrimental affects from it. (Unless someone else on ATS wants to correct me?)
