How Can I Buy Liquid Splenda?

Liquid Splenda has zero grams of carbs, whereas the granular product has 24 g carbs per cup. Liquid Splenda is sold as liquid Sucralose and, to my knowledge can be purchased online only.

Amazon, has a nice selection of liquid Sucralose.

It seems expensive, but it is very concentrated and one bottle lasts forever. The manufacturer claims that one 8 oz bottle equals the sweetness of 32 cups of sugar.

Does your doctor give you the run around when ordering tests? Does your insurance stink? You can order your own lab tests through Direct Labs. They are reasonable and the tests are the same as if your doc had ordered them.
