Committed to helping all Canadians live healthier, happier lives, Splenda makes it deliciously simple to reduce sugar intake.

Diabetes, a chronic condition that impacts how the body turns food into energy, can reduce one’s lifespan by five to fifteen years.1  This striking statistic highlights the significance of reducing one’s sugar intake to help manage the risk developing the disease.

Almost one in ten Canadians 20 years and above has been diagnosed with diabetes.3  Maintaining a healthy diet, and specifically monitoring carbohydrate intake, is a critical aspect of diabetes management. It is also an important lifestyle choice for those looking to take proactive measures for their overall health.


Maintaining a balanced diet without compromising taste
