    Hi all. are any of the sweets on this website ok?

    Sweets | Sugar Free Megastore

    I do mean specifically the carb and sugar free ones (not the toffees choc etc)

    for eg the sherbert pips contain

    isomalt,citric acid,flavouring,sweetener:sucralose,colours:E129.

    Thank you

    sucrolose is a dukan no

    most people have the sula brand sweets found in holland and barrat , health food shops and some supermarkets I think the limit is 3 to 4 sweets a day

    just to add a disclaimer sucrolose was a no on the original dukan , no idea whether its joined the ranks of tolerated yet

    Sucrolose is "splenda" - and the sweetener of choice for most of us, I suspect!

    oh now im confused! are they a yes or a no?? I'd rather it be a yes or a no based on the original dukan as i try and stick to that as much as possible when given advice on here :eek:

    Sucrolose has only been available in the EU since 2004, 4 years after the original book was published, hence its omission.

    I don't have a copy of the most recent book with me - but far as I am aware, Sucrolose / Splenda can be used as an alternative to aspartame, Dukan's original sweetener of choice.

    I was going to say be very careful - because if you have a tendancy to binge on sugar free sweets you can get awful stomagh pains, wind and, um, diarrhea...

    Maybe try having SF jelly when you have a sweet craving - it's allowed and has helped me a few evenings!
