Aldi sucralose sweetener, same as splenda?

I am asking as I know some sweeteners have an ingredient which is bad for you - always gaved me headaches (though I can't remember said ingredients name!) and because of this I have stuck to Splenda.

I read that they are exactly the same, can anyone confirm this and that is the same ingredients as Splenda?

Sorry if this is daft but I just wanted to be sure :)

splenda contains maltodextrin and sucralose.

I would doubt they are exactly the same, as I would assume that exact measurements of those ingredients and they way various brands are produced will differ slightly, but a sucralose based sweetener will definately be close.

Yes, they are exactly the same, with the exact same ingredients but Aldi is half the price of Splenda, so a good result. :)

I once ate some Werthers, no sugar (aspartame filled) sweets and I blew up like a balloon. I was so full of wind and blubber I had to stay home! I also experienced this with SlimFast.
