New study found that artificial sucralose (one brand name is Splenda) increased food cravings versus natural sugar sucrose.
When healthy volunteers consumed drinks sweetened with sucralose versus sucrose-sweetened drinks or plain water, they had more activity in brain areas associated with appetite and cravings, reduced levels of satiety hormones, and increased food intake when offered snacks.
Low or zero calorie artificial sweeteners were NOT helpful for dieting.
